    THE AMAZON.COM LINK/TAG HAS CHANGED because Amazon are butts. So, please edit any favourites/bookmarks etc. to the following link: http://www.amazon.com/ref=as_li_ss_t...KSEB4YUBLKZ53W

    I can confirm that the other Amazon links are all still good, it was just .com that changed.

    Updated. You should continue to see random items from me on a fairly regular basis.

    I just want to thank everyone who uses these links. I have taken the decision to remove Google Ads from EoFF indefinitely. This will mean faster load times and less risk of bugs/infections from problematic ads.

    Notably, this is despite EoFF not turning a profit of any kind whatsoever. I just happen to be able to afford to run EoFF with my wages and felt like this is the right thing to do. For anyone who is wanting to help me out, just use those Amazon links when you buy anything. It doesn't require any advertising at EoFF, it doesn't cost you anything, and when used by enough people it actually helps more than Google AdSense does.

    The site loads so fast now. Sometimes I'm not entirely sure if the page refreshed or not where it loads so fast. xD

    I always try to use the links when I remember it. And it proved in good stead this Christmas!

    Muchos gracias, Formalhaut. The UK paid off half of the site's monthly costs with December's Amazon.co.uk purchases. The US paid off NOTHING because I strongly suspect most people are still using the old (and now useless) link. RIP.

    Now that I know about this I will be using the Canadian link once I have some money coming in again.

    Just saw this now so when I do my shopping and all I'll give it a click. I literally just bought 2 items off of Amazon last night so sucks I couldn't have swung by and saw this thread earlier! :/

    Just got my first Amazon UK income for about half a year, thanks people who are still buying stuff and helping me pay for the servers! For anyone interested, that's enough to pay for one month of EoFF. I probably get about two months per year paid for purely through people using these links and not costing themselves a penny (just costing Amazon). Kudos. It's the only income EoFF generates these days, everything else is outta my pocket because Google Ads were making EoFF lag too much for my enjoyment.

    Are you still getting stuff from the US amazon, or did the link change yet again?

    I use the US one to buy stuff occasionally, if you need a baseline to judge if its still coming through.

    The Kindle, Funko Pops and assorted PS4 games were me.

    Honestly, I set my Amazon favourite link to EoFF years ago and I've just forgotten all about it.

    I honestly need to set the BF's to it. We usually order on his account cause his has prime. We order sooooo much trout from amazon I'm pretty confident we alone would pay for a few months in a year.

    I got a cheque for US and my very first one for Canada about two or three months ago so they are going good! I like to think maybe just one or two Canadians slowly bought enough all on their own to generate that Canadian one. It got set up on day one of this thread and had to generate 100 Canadian dollars to trigger the cheque, so that's probably 2000 dollars spent to get that much over however many years.

    EDIT: Four years!
