totally fixes pmc disk space, thanks for the share man


This tutorial will teach you how to save disk space on PlanetMinecraft,
and also allow you to earn a small amount at the same time.

Please leave a comment if you have any problems or questions.

Important notes
You must be level 20+ to do this.


Steps
Step 1:

Sign up at Adfoc.
(Be sure you select Link Shrinker as your account type and not Advertiser).

Step 2:

Go to your Adfoc home page after signing in and find the link shrinker box.
(It has a big button that says "SHRINK" by it.)

Step 3:

Upload the file for your submission to somewhere like Media Fire or Drop Box.
(In another tab)

Step 4:

Copy the download link (MediaFire/whatever you're using) and shrink it with
Adfoc.

Step 5:


Copy the link that Adfoc gave you.

Step 6:

Go to your PMC submission>Update>then go to the bottom of
the first page and find where it says something like "File Mirror"

Right next to that you'll see an empty URL box. (paste your shortened Adfoc link into it).

Step 7:

(Optional) Delete your current download for your submission.
This will save space on PlanetMinecraft and make your Adfoc download the only
available download option.

Step 8:

Save your submission.

Now when someone downloads your submission it'll show them an ad
for 6 seconds then go to your MediaFire download and give you some money. :)
(I think it's around a tenth of a penny per American click.)

You get money from most countries, but the amount you get paid depends on the country.
Not sure if you can see this page without logging in, but you can check here. adfoc.us/payout-rates

Hey, I hope you know that adfocus is an unsafe site and can give you viruses. I'm pretty sure noone goes on the site without and add blocker which donesn't make you money. Use adfly as it is 100% safe and the adds aren't lilvid or stuff like that. Sometimes there are, but you can actually close it before it downloads anything.

The people who go to your Adfoc link see an ad,
the advertisers pay Adfoc (they probably bought visitors,) then Adfoc pays you part of their profits.

le edit:

PlanetMinecraft allows you to use this if you're level 20 or
higher.

People who make skins have low chances of being popular, there is alot of skins on PMC, hard to get noticed.

It would be possible by pasting the adfoc version of your link somewhere in your blog, but that might be annoying to your viewers.

Looking closely at this "money maker" suggests that it costs money to use this site then you only get a little money back. I could be wrong but it looks like the case. If so, then you may be screwed or a sponsor for the site.

some1epic123

Adfoc is completely free :)

Here's how (I think) it pretty much works:

You shorten your link into an adfoc link

A user clicks the link to download your submission (or whatever the link is for)

They go to the adfoc thing that shows them an ad for 5-6 seconds and then lets them go to the link/submission download

Then adfoc gets paid by the ad and pays you a little bit of the money.

:)

I've been doing some research. It seems that adfoc does indeed promise pay for using their links. The problem I have discovered is that adfoc never pays back the money it owes.

Thats what I thought, but my guardian seems to think otherwise. I'm going to try to look into this more. Also you sound very sponser like.

Not to be rude but if you used an ad fly link for EVERYTHING you do wouldn't that get pretty annoying and perhaps lose you friend and subs and the like.

That wasn't the point I was trying to get across -_-. What I mean is that if you use it for evrything pretty much like you suggested just to get a a little bit of money it gets annoying. It is not the five second wait it is having to deal with that every you click something it gets quite annoying as you can imagine And for what? a few pennys? I am not gainst it I am just saying it is probs not a wise idea to use it for everything. I hope I made my point clear this time.

I have a mod request: you know those 'You are the (mob) mods'?
Could you please make a 'You Are The Villager mod'?
The way it would work is you are a villager (duh) trying to make your own village, and only zombies will attack you. Please make it?

Also can it be modloader? i hate forge!

You install forge basically the same way, and it makes it easier to install mods.
