What is Fobz?

Fobz is a place to share and discuss fun and interesting things from around the web.

By participating in the community you earn points, which in turn gives you a percentage of the advertising revenue of each month.

If someone reads one of your posts, you earn 2 points.

If someone votes for one of your posts, you earn 10 points.

If someone replies to one of your posts, you earn 20 points.

How do points translate into ad revenue share?

Each month the points earned by each person is divided by the total amount of points earned by everyone for the same period.

That fraction is multiplied by the revenue pool to give your share.

You can see your current share at the top of each page when you're logged in.

Note that this is a projection of what your share will be at the end of the month if your percentage of overall points remains the same. It will go up and down as you (and other people) earn points.

At the end of each month your share of revenue is then added to your HubGarden account.

What can I post about?

Anything at all. It can be a link, a question, a story, a comment, a debate - anything.

Just make it fun or interesting so that people are likely to read it and leave replies.

What are channels?

When creating a post you can optionally add a channel.

These are like categories - so for instance you may add your post to the "Funny" channel, or the "Science" channel.

If the channel does not exist it will be automatically created.

How is the monthly ad revenue pool determined?

Each month's pool is a set percentage of the ad revenue actually earned by Fobz during the previous month.
