    thinkin about starting one up just to make a few extra bucks on the side. i've got the knowledge to do it (coding and implementation wise) but lack the information on server management.

    should i just keep it small on my small shared server until it hopefully :x: explodes?

    and for anyone who knows about them/owns one hows the profitability?

    thanks guys <3

    maybe you should focus on the success of our tf2 servers first, amirite?

    :hsughr:

    I don't know, really. Thought about starting one. There's already a shitload of sites like that out there though. If I were to do it I wouldn't put it on a shared. That's just me though.

    Honestly, there's way too many sites like this out there already. You got to find a niche to make yours stand above the rest, yaknow?[FONT=arial,sans-serif][/FONT]

    Just a quick question to toss out there, flash games are copywriten to specific websites correct? For instance you can't just steal all of the flash games from one site and put them on yours without potentially getting sued right?

    a highly doubt any flash game developer has the funds for a full fledged lawsuit. besides...they'd ask you to remove it first before suing. :bowdown:
