also open a fb page where u can post news of newly updated files so that everybody will know. no doubt fb the most convenient way to reach peoples.
i think this way, from the site adsense and fb advertising u can get fair amount to run a good server.
P.S. if u need a helping hand to manage fb page and other things, i can help u.
You can't push the users to click on the banners as it would be against the adsense rules and neirther add a flag which doesn't allow you to go on if the user doesn't click on the banners.
Anyway it is fine: the users just get what they allow us to give them. The few users who really support us get the access to the files in a different way even if the website should go down.
