This website is not active enough to justify ad revenue in the first place.
My website, http://www.rpgfanatic.net/
, generates $10 a month from ad revenue via Google Ads, from around 10k hits.
I'm pretty confident that these forums would generate more. Maybe enough to handle the server costs.
I say go for embedding ads into the forums. It's not like people are going to stop using the forums if there are ads. After all, many of them play a game they are incredibly unhappy with.
