Whats with the ads in between posts now. Is that a new thing or what?

I only remember them being at the top of the page.They probably added them near the bottom for more revenue. Either that or they've been there forever and I'm just now noticing. :lol:

It's no big deal though. If you'd like to have them removed become a premium member. One of these days I'll be one.

I heard $7 a month. Not sure if there's been any changes or not.

Yea, we've just installed those features for non-Premies... even the staff sees them.

The Premium Membership is now "invite" only... so we can make sure that there will be a limited number and only "quality" posters. Don't be offended if you haven't been invited... it's just that we're kinda full at this time.

Overall, this is implemented to hope to cover the cost of the server. The ads aren't flashy nor do they stand out... so I don't consider them to be obnoxious, but let me know your thoughts.

The ads don't bother me at all. The ad at the bottom though would probably look better below the quick reply box. But that's just my opinion. Do you guys get more revenue if we click the ads?

The colors are nice too but I think they should always be the light teal and dark teal. The orange one doesn't look right with the lack of orange in the site layout.

Yes. Every click helps us.

Keeping this site on the internet is pretty expensive. So we have to find ways to generate revenue within reason. And as Wharf mentioned, we don't consider popup ads within reason.

I'll be clicking away then. :wink:
