That was way back in 1999 and the program name was 'GoingPlatinum'.
There are a lot of forums out there, probably thousands so I have no idea what every one of them do.
As for me, I have in fact been paid several times to mod a forum. The most recent was a PTC about
a year ago, for $20 per month. Some forums do in fact pay some sort of a monthly stipend to mods.

Before we go on to start making money here, let me explain an old concept that I live by online and it goes like this:
"If I can make $100.00 per month in one free to earn program online, then I can make $1,000.00 a month in ten free to earn programs online"
This can be interpreted many ways, but the fact you believe in it you have to back it up somehow. It may or may not be applicable to you, you are still giving a suggestion.
These are your words. Positive is good and all, but REALITY is even better. People who are NOT from the USA making "GOOD" money here as you say, well if not for referrals, how are they doing so ? OFFERS & TASKS.......
Remove tasks & offers + referrals from the equation and what are you left with ? Clicking ads and clixgrid.
This has nothing to do with negativity but a serious reality check. yes CS gives solid potential for everyone, but only a limited market can unlock the full potential....as the only way to get out of this without the offers & tasks is having a solid downline. Unless there is a secret area of CS I don't know about.
I have 3 referrals, here, 1 from the US, not bothering to do a single damn task or offer, and earning 2-3 cents daily from them. Where do you think my stats come from then ? How did I earn all this money here ? If not for tasks and offers I would have long time left and earned $0.
You have good work ethic, good. SO do I, but I also am down to earth. Let's be honest and realistic, the fast and big earnings potential here are surveys / offers and tasks and earnings from a downline 8 levels deep (1 level for clicking ads/offers/tasks) and the 8 levels for upgrades.
So what do you tell, realistically, a new member who has tried and tried and cannot get any active referall, has no tasks, no offers....... ???? Get referrals....... Now let's do some math, if most days say for example I can earn $4-5, how many ACTIVE referrals do you think it will take to earn half as much.
Sorry, but I just like reality approach.
However, if you were to say that many people here not earning are NOT putting ANY efforts or truly know the full potential I would agree with you 100%......One of my referral is a good example. I see many US and tier 1 members not doing tasks or offers and some even go as far as claiming it is not worth the efforts. THEN I would agree.
BUT what about those who try and try and try and get nothing........
Something to think about.

The $100 or $1000 you are not going to make in a month clicking on 0.01, 0.005 and 0.001 ads for sure, even on all PTCs combined....SO some countries are only left with referrals. AND to earn $100 a month from referrals alone, requires a bundle of them, again, the task of getting the referrals is moderate, but getting them active is the hardest part, given the saturation and over promoting of this site.
There are many members from different countries struggling and trying every single day looking for tasks and offers and have nothing, so their only option is clicking ads, and referring or possibly advertising something of their own.
The biggest earning potential for someone without recruiting skills or referrals is tasks and offers and unfortunately for some, this is something tier 1 countries will benefit the most, US being the TOP earning potential followed by Canada and UK, although limited in potential much more so.
There is also a level of reality ! People who are in such countries are mostly attracted towards quick income and unfortunately will turn to ponzi schemes and HYIP with the promise of big returns.
