I currently have a forum which attracts about 2.000 unique visitors/month, 500 active daily users en about 100 readers. Where can you start with advertising? Where do you have to search to start a program? Can someone hook me up?

One side note: No Google Adsense.

The forum is in Dutch but I respect the "no hotlinking" rule. More info can be obtained via PM.

I had problems with Adsense in the beginning. Thanks for the Microsoft link.

Consider donations and/or subscriptions instead. It helps confidence (only people who actually find your site useful, will subscribe), longer periods allow you to manage budget more efficiently and not worry about unreliable loads, ads serving malware and users blocking. Forum is about mutual respect not about pouring raw sewage on people's heads, because, e.g., server costs are too high - or pure greed as it happens. Ads suck.
