- 9. Video hosts for large files?
- 10. Can I earn money from uploading videos?
- 11. I have pics I want to share
- 12. My pictures are on this site without consent
- 13. Are the ads really necessary?
I'm afraid so. The ads keep us from charging a monthly subscription fee to our members and from restricting the content to guests. The site costs money and we need to monetize parts of the site in order to cover the costs.
- 14. Can I pay for advertisement space?
- 15. Do you do link referral?
We are interested in link referral with websites similar to our own and of the same popularity. If you wish to display a link to Hot Lads World on your site, in return for yours on ours; drop us an email at email@example.com and we will let you know if we're interested.
- 16. What's happening with the vault?
Members who upload content are given access to The Vault. So in short, if you upload/embed videos on our videos page and/or share photos on our forum, you will be noticed by admin and given access. Do NOT pester us about gaining access because you believe you have earned it by posting a 10-15 second video... yes people have done that in the past. We will contact you by email to thank you for your contributions and reward you with access when WE believe you are making an active contribution to the site.
- 17. Can I send you a load of content?
