Quoting Mel.


Suggestion: Since the money members earn from updating the Wiki will mean very little to the members themselves maybe it would be an idea if TP offer them the opportunity to donate it to a charity. One to help people in the third world maybe.

Definitely a good idea. What we may be able to do is set up a dedicated Adsense account that is earmarked for a designated charity. If users want their ads to go to a charity instead of their own account, then they would just need to enter that one instead of their own (or we could enter it for them).

Any ideas for a good charity?

For sure saving the tiger as far as I am concerned! And I am way far! This is partly what travelling is all about, the possibility to have a brief encouter with an animal like the tiger...let's hope this will be possible for our grandchildren as well

Of course there are thousands of worthy causes but here are a few of them.

These help slum children in the Klong Tuey slum in Bangkok. They provide school supplies and food for slum children who otherwise could not avail of the free shooling in Thailand because they do not have these requirements.

This place provides a home for many single mothers and their children who are refugees from Burma who would otherwise find it difficult to survive.

This helps people who are often just like we are but got themselves in a bad situation.

And there is Amnesty, who I am not sure can be classified as a charity but what they do is so necessary and they are very reputable.

A bit controversial . . .

How about the "Feed the MikeyBoab" foundation?

What charities operate throughout the world? What's the one that helps travellers who are arrested in foreign countries, ensuring fair trials etc? Is it Fair Trials Abroad?

Yeah, that is called Fair Trials Abroad.
They helped the prisoner I used to visit in the Bangkok Hilton. If it wasnt for them he would probably still be in prison.

Please donate the money to creatures who are innocent at all times: animals.

Money going to people may help just as much, but somehow I think it does not.

I was thinking that, too--a global organization that operates everywhere, like UNICEF or OXFAM or something. And, personally, I'd prefer to see the money go towards people rather than animals. Especially children.

In the end, though, everyone will be helping something, somewhere. It's a lovely idea, Mel.

A quick question - sorry if it has already been answered, does this service apply to Full Members domain pages as well, if so what is the percentage share for those pages?

That is, if I have registed my Publisher ID and ads are being generated from my blog content directly, - do I have a share in those click profits as well?

Cheers

Not currently, but I think it's fair to say that this will definitely be considered, depending on its popularity in the guide. So far though, it has been worthwhile with much more editing activity as a result.
