There are 3 advertising programs supported by this mod atm.  Google Adsense, Yahoo Publisher Network (a.k.a YPN) [atm is USA only] and TextLinkAds referral ads

This mod enables your users to signup to any or all of those programs and then enter there ID into the Ad Revenue Sharing area of their profile.

When anyone views a topic, there is a chance that the author of that topic will have his ID's used to show the ads.  The rest of the time, board ads are used.

For any non-topic pages, a user is selected at random or the board ads can be shown.

This mod includes tonnes of settings/options to control position/colors/size of ads, control which users can participate based on membergroup, those who can see ads, banned users, reports, stats, etc etc etc
