Would you allow others to earn off your website?

Would you allow other people to earn off your website if you were not gaining anything in terms of money off it? :yum: Such as, if you had a forum that allowed a link member's signatures, would you allow your member to sell that link space to other people off your site for cash?

In general, I'd like to be generating revenue before giving anyone else the opportunity to do it. I wouldn't ever have a problem with a member selling their signature space though. It's up to them to decide how to use their signature space.

I agree with s3_gunzel. If the website/business isn't making a profit off of it, I would not do something like this.
The website might not be directly making a profit, but, nonetheless, it can make the site more attractive to sellers and buyers. In that case, you could say it's good for publicity.

But an attitude like that could hold you back.

That’s why I said in general. Obviously, every situation is unique. It also totally depends on how you plan to monetize the site. If I’m going to flip it and attempt to make a lump sum off selling the website as a whole, I may be a little less concerned about other individuals generating revenue off of my site. This kind of thing truly depends.

I would allow in a specific situation : if the user gains money by bringing visitors to his link and thus on my website, I wouldn't mind.

I don't have a problem with that, as long as they are active on my website. The more people I have active, the better. Then I can eventually make money off them being on the forum through advertising.
