Office Pool Junkie is funded entirely by your voluntary payments and ad revenue, with the latter being generated primarily by ads displayed on pool pages.
Pool admins can reduce, or even remove the ads entirely from their pool pages by making a PayPal payment. Since payments are "Pay What You Want", any payment amount will reduce the number of times ads are displayed.
The Ad Removal Rate is calculated as follows:
Ad Removal Rate (%) = Payment / Removal Threshold x 100
Ads will be removed entirely if the payment meets (or exceeds) our Removal Threshold, which attempts to calculate the ad revenue based on the following criteria:
- Pool format
- Number of participants
- Pool duration (for certain pool formats)
- Days of week played (for certain pool formats)
Pool Admins can make payments for their pool by clicking "Pay What You Want" under the Pool Admin section of the Pool Menu.
