    Why not offer status points for ad clicks? You get money to support the site from the clicks, we get status on MilePoint. Everyone wins.

    That is too easy to exploit, as it is a very simple script to write to "click" on the ads

    This is a violation to AdSense's TOS. You can't provide incentive for clicking ads ;)

    There is no benefit to MilePoint since they would get kicked out of every advertising program out there.

    How about getting points for clicking on ADs that you can use to buy extra services on the website (like smilies)!

    While that would benefit both parties, it still incentivizes clicks so I'm not sure that would work either.
