MySpace – Can you make money from those users?

If you haven’t heard of MySpace, I suggest you pull the plug to your internet connection and return to your life as a hermit.

MySpace is essentially the web’s hang-out place – it’s intentions are to get you re-introduced to your old high school friends (unless you’re still suffering through it), sets up possible dates, lets you see local events, and tries to give everyone a sense of Internet coolness.

This is all great, but for the amazing amount of traffic that the site generates, can you target any one audience, and try to sell a product or service to them?

Methinks that would be a hard task.

Not that you shouldn’t try, and I am sure there are enough products and services that the MySpace crowd would be interested in.

But can you get your message to them without getting flagged as spam? Craigslist users do a great job of policing spammy postings, when there are avid readers of a certain topic.

To get rich in America, you need to have a product that has 2 things:

1.) sell for $20 or less
2.) can be purchased at Wal-Mart

Every piece of white trash can afford a $20 item.

So, with that in mind, I ask if anyone “out there” has had any success in doing this – I’d love to hear your thoughts…

    So, this interface change made my last comment seem like it ended with a very rude and emboldened “What Do You Think?” I would just like to apologize on behalf of Factpile’s being so sassy. ;D

    @Sauro


    “it’s not my fucking fault,”

    Then do not bring it up then if your not going to explain yourself. Wasting time in here! “sigh”

    @Soul

    “But it would be easier for you to just pause the gif.”

    How do you pause it? Every time I click it, a “sign in” screen comes up. At no point in that gif do i see the pylon he attacks being anything other than red. Even the area he is not attacking and that does not go soft and collapse.

    “he colors change from light to dark and back again i”


    “All I see is the product of limited animation.”

    Exactly. As it roils and splashes the darker parts of the lava are overlapping the brighter parts. Like you say its not advanced but understandable enough.

    ” It is most likely an a’a lava flow.”

    volcano.oregonstate.edu/book/export/html/131

    Its hard to say, but according to this a’a are cooler than Pahoehoe so I cannot find a consistency in which is which. But what Kain walks near is not just a “lava flow”, it has neither a skin or much of anything in it. Its just a pool of hot orange lava.

    ” these areas can be crossed in one or two bounds when they are encountered.”


    Thing is they are throughout the region. Its not like its only one path.

    “It is not a highball. We have the color chart, and the tower was not painted red.”

    How do you know it was not painted red? The whole thing was red, even the part that was not melting. If it was all that temperature then the whole thing, not the top should have wilted.

    ” No concrete number can be derived from Kain running over a black stone path surrounded by lava and with cracks in some places.”

    Can you prove this or are you just not capable of calcluating it? Because if someone is spending minutes if not hours walking close to an actual pool of lava without a suit and not even being set ablaze that is impressive. Its like being cooked in an oven and not burning. Granted it would be better if he walked through it without harm but “shrug”

    The Godzilla feat is just as hard to gauge.

    “Which is gameplay, not something he actually did in canon”

    Of course it is canon, he has to get to this tower somehow. And those are the only ways through.

    “This considered, using the terrain to gauge how exposed Kain would be is actually a faulty ”

    Explain?

    @Zere

    “a way to explain the differing breath could be that he is simply using different types of radiation”

    Sounds reasonable. So what sort would be hot, what would be like physical force? You say electrons, neutrons and protons have mass but not a great amount of it.

  4. Kitten Lord August 26, 2015 at 10:44 am -      #4

    What the hell is with this interface? This comment was supposed to be for the Godzilla thread….

  5. Rookie August 26, 2015 at 10:51 am -      #5

    This new interface is horrible IMO.

  6. zeretulee August 26, 2015 at 10:55 am -      #6

    a disruptor fires particles that absorb the energy in the magnetic fields of atoms causing them to decay “safely”.

    by safely I mean they don’t explode, they just radiate away harmlessly.

    they are weak against high density solid material and are totally ineffective against any matter not held together by magnetism E.G. hard-light.

    New interface makes it hard to get to the last page of a thread lol

    He did, a normal flintlock pistol wouldn’t have been able to accurately hit the Argo II, or anyone on it, from the distance it did.
    EDIT:
    Beautiful, I love myspace.

    Star roads are Precursor not Forerunner tech. And it all comes down to if they can get the most out of the Dreadnought or not. If they can’t then they’ll have to rely on Supercarriers to equal Titans as they appear to be in the same mass range. It would be quite the fight either way.
    There’s no clear winner, the best commander or tactic will win since they can both defeat each other just by relying on their tech. The Covenant, from what I read, has the number advantage but I may be mistaken, so long as the Advent keep away from energy projectors then they should survive. The Covenant just spam cheap but effective units at their enemies.
    A fleet that has at least one Supercarrier will be carrying hundreds of thousands of soldiers ready for boarding missions against the Advent. Although that mind control effect may be an issue to anyone who is not a Hunter due to their lack of a central nervous system.

    did the site get a new layout???

  14. Karen Starr August 26, 2015 at 12:01 pm -      #14

    I posted that to the Kain thread, and it wound up here….

    something seems different

  18. Ninja Lowk August 26, 2015 at 12:50 pm -      #18

    Its finally happened. we’ve been hacked by MySpace. It’s the only explanation.

  19. erickyboo August 26, 2015 at 1:02 pm -      #19

    So are we supposed to figure out a way to make money now?

    @ordo11
    Boba, and jango have a lot more showings than you realize. And besides Sabine isn’t the only explosive expert. Boba once used his father’s helmet to try, and blow up mace windu. He also blew up a star cruiser by tinkering with the reactor. He was also a full fledged bounty hunter around this time as well. He even went on missions with Bossk.

    I hit the random post button, took me to Cyclops Warrior. Will my post be rerouted? Let’s find out.

    Edit: Yes it was. Interesting though that I wasn’t rerouted to this page. The page I was on refreshed, with no message.

  22. Rookie August 26, 2015 at 1:31 pm -      #22

    I wrote to Admin about this problem. Hopefuly he will take care about it soon.

    Does anyone else notice that Kitten Lords comments have been removed? or is that just me….

  24. Nsl98 August 26, 2015 at 1:51 pm -      #24

    Factpile has been cleansed…

    So, does everyone’s comment boxes look weird? Or is it just me?

  25. pimpmage August 26, 2015 at 1:59 pm -      #25

    Kitten lord was removed… his cancerous removal broke site it seems?

  26. Ninja Lowk August 26, 2015 at 2:00 pm -      #26

    This is like constantly being redirected to the room with a moose in Invader Zim. The idea is just as old and relevant as Myspace.

  27. Shadow-Knight August 26, 2015 at 2:07 pm -      #27

    So……………..why does everything look all squished together? this is going to be one pain in the a$$ to read….especially if we have two or three people post walls of text and calcs back to back.

  28. pimpmage August 26, 2015 at 2:09 pm -      #28

    So I am not sure if kitten lord was banned or not. All fisher king’s comments still exist on this site, same with Negative_Zero. Was kitten uber banned into non existance?

    The change was undone, his comments are back.

  30. erickyboo August 26, 2015 at 2:15 pm -      #30

    Anyways since this seems to be the Hub.
    I sort of want to suggest a post-apocalyptic factpiler survival match. Maybe with robots, aliens, zombies, post-nuclear abominations or something. The catch? Factpilers’ traits and abilities are sort of, exaggerated sort of. So if a certain person with answers… is good at sniping in real life, then his sniping traits are better in the match, and so on.

    I feel like we are running for presidency here, I vow to erase the likes of aj, creyzj, and kitten lord from factpile history… and erase all bronies and furries from existance.”

    Okay people, it’s fixed. Move along nothing to see here.

  36. Kitten Lord August 26, 2015 at 2:21 pm -      #36

    Course I can lol….look at you lot all hopeful that I was banned for having an opinion! oh lordie, its almost as hopeful as Beerus or Alucard beating Kain in those threads!

  37. pimpmage August 26, 2015 at 2:27 pm -      #37

    “Course I can lol….look at you lot all hopeful that I was banned for having an opinion! oh lordie, its almost as hopeful as Beerus or Alucard beating Kain in those threads!”

    Wowwweee having opinion is not why this entire site dislikes you. You have an opinion that you demand others take as fact. Looks like someone that had control over this site tried to completely remove your comments from it’s history.
