• With the number of recent threads from brand new users that we have observed in our Classifieds forum selling goods under questionable circumstances, we have instituted a new policy restricting new members of iLounge from posting new threads in the Classifieds forum until they have reached "Regular Member" status.

    New users become Regular Members once they have made 10 posts and been a member of the iLounge Forums for at least 7 days. Prior to this time, members may still read the Classifieds forum, and even respond to existing threads for items being sold by other members, but they may not create new threads advertising their own items for sale.

    This will hopefully help to protect our user community by discouraging fraudulent users from signing up and posting classified ads without having at least a very basic level of established membership in our forums.

    Obviously all users should still exercise due diligence when making use of our classifieds forums, but we hope that this restriction will help to decrease the number of blatantly fraudulent ads that we have been seeing in recent weeks.

    Please be sure to review our Classified Forum Policy for more information.

A college student is nearing his goal of graduating without debt by selling nearly a million US dollars of internet advertising space.

Alex Tew, 21, of Cricklade, Wiltshire, launched milliondollarhomepage.com before going to Nottingham University to study business management.

He has made $900,000 (£519,000) selling the million pixels on the site for one dollar (60p) apiece to companies.

He embarked on the scheme after his brother left university owing £30,000.

The website has a grid of 10,000 boxes, each 100 pixels (10 by 10) in size.

Customers can place advertising logos on the purchased space, linking web users to their own websites.

The pixels are sold in blocks of 10 with a minimum investment of $100.


So.......Anybody else think this is a fantastic idea?
I think it's amazing what this this man has done.

Here's the site: www.milliondollarhomepage.com

great idea, however it's expensive and companies are kinda stupid to buy it. They could've bought space for cheaper. But Great idea, and now he's got money.

Don't be so sure. This lad is getting boat-loads of publicity about his idea and he also guarantees the site to stay up for 5 years(He's hoping to keep it much longer though)
