I think that RHP is still not Russ's and Chris's "day job." Thus, they probably don't see RHP as their ticket to long term fiscal security and wealth deep in to retirement. The hints that I get from this come from their own comments, and by the speed (rate, slowness) by which they implement some relatively simple and straightforward improvements (note: i am ly serious. I'm just doing what GB asks us to do, and that is toss out our ideas.

I think that this site is the main job because i dont think you can leave an active site for 8 hours while they go work their day job somewhere...
I agree i think if the cheats got removed faster then more people would stay on the site longer but as it is i know alot of people play 1 year here then leave for that reason...
I like the other reply trophies even though id never win 1 in a major would be a good idea.

You are all wrong on at least one point in your posts.
Originally posted by Grampy BobbyThis is an example of what I meant by recommendations not being implemented. If I went back to my early days of my membership, I recommended a "Hall of Fame" type of space. It was discussed but never implemented. It's not big deal, but I think that it would be a nice "showcase" for the site and might increase the membership. I also don't see why it isn't already done. Still, I think that RHP is really about chess and it's a great place to play. I came here from YAHOO (a total joke for chess), and the USCF page (a great place to play for members of the USCF), but RHP is THE WORLD!

graphic prominently displayed (for all to see, for all time) and easily accessible, right here at the site.
Originally posted by Grampy BobbyNearly all the adverts I've seen on the site are through bog-standard pay-per-click systems. A generous estimate would be that they generate $0.05 to $0.10 per click, so in order to match the revenue from a subscription that would mean a non-sub would need to average around 300 - 600 clicks per year. On average I'd guess that realistically that the average non-sub makes around 20 clicks per year.
Would guess that the annual RHP revenue stream depends largely upon billings to site advertisers, with subscriptions providing a lesser
portion of floor revenue.)
Originally posted by Daemon SinDuring my time of non-sub, I hardly even looked at the ads. Much less did I click of any of them. I was just blind of them.
You can get that style of advertising as well, but the pay-per-click style is more common these days.
