There are also those who somehow seem to think that their mod needs to generate money. They just give you one adfly link and that's it. "Adfly doesn't work for you? Tough luck" Those people should know that not everything in this world revolves around money. If they really think the time spent creating a mod is time wasted unless they get money in return, they shouldn't be making mods in the first place.
That's all. :/
Nonsense. You would need around 100,000 referrals to get 80 dollars. The payout rate isn't that high.
No, the ads aren't downloaded on firefox, but the server still believes they're being viewed, as its a clientside operation that decides to download then draw them or not. On google chrome adblockers just hide the content after downloading it, therefore they definitely get paid.
Back in the day when the psp first came out I was big into it. People would host files on megaupload, rapidshare. I hated those sites (megaupload was a little better than rapidshare.) I hated having to wait a minute or longer to download a 2mb file at 30 kb/s and then having to wait 5 minutes to download another file. Then one day i discovered sendspace and it was a god send. Unlimited downloads, faster download speeds and no waiting time.
Mediafire is my sendspace of 2005. Adfly is good though. 5 seconds isnt too long to wait and the download speed is good. But in my opinion it doesn't out do mediafire.
If you use an ad blocker, they don't get paid.
I will never click an adfly link if another link is present.
I modded and mapped for decades and never once expected or even want to make any money. It's crap I learned to do, and did in my spare time.
I show appreciation in the form of:
A] Downloading the mod.
B]Commenting, giving a +1, helping with bug sniffing and balancing.
Wanting a paycheck on top of that is pure greed.
if people want to help you they wont just use the direct, But they wont be as happy with you if you make them use it

I agree with you completely. If there is a mod that I love so very much, and they do provide multiple ways of downloading, I will use the adfly link as it helps them.
I still don't like adfly as once, an advertisement was something to the effect of: Find slutty and horny people near you! And then it said there were like two hundred people near me in my small town who had signed up on that site. It also included a bit of nude and showing pics. It was obviously a virus.
