    I'd imagine that if you were good to them, used your hosting as they describe in the TOS then as long as they are open, which will be forever if you're wondering :).

    How are you making money? The ads are only links to your forums.

    Heh. Not with the meagar amount of clicks the Google ads get. The main source of revenue is paying to remove ads, google ads, and paying for advertising (basically affiliates).

    I'm a college student so I figure that I should be buying lots and lots of beer... instead I'm paying for servers. So as I see it, everyone here owes me some beer. ;) But in reality, x10 falls into a bigger plan with the advertising and such, it's called a loss leader. I can't give out more than that or it would reveal my plan to take over the world. So, I honestly can't say x10 will be up "forever" since no one knows the future but I can guarantee you over a year from where we're at now assuming nothing catastrophic happens.
