Actually, Wharf, I had a HUGE little booboo for a huge group of members. In my process of doing some things last night I noticed that I never turned the banners on to registered members... only unregistered members.

In any case, dolfan_101, banners have been there for a long time for many members and nonmembers... this is just the first time you've been able to see it.

Let me know what you think...

Popups can be blocked. This is absolutely annoying. People who have donated in the past or are currently donating shouldn't be bombed with advertisements.

Bombed?

I hardly consider one or two tiny little ads in between posts to be obtrusive. :confused:

It is. Hence why you'll find finheaven to be one of the few places you'll ever see such. It looks incredibly cheap and shouldn't be forced on to anyone whose ever given money to this site.

Ads should never ever be intrusive and this qualifies.

IMO, they couldn't be any less intrusive....I barely even notice them anymore.

They are certainly not worth complaining about.

You're entitled to your opinion. And it is just that, your opinion. Just because something isn't the norm doesn't mean is not a good way of doing things. There aren't a lot of sites like FinHeaven out there anyway.

To be honest, I've actually bought stuff off our ads. And I am not a guy who likes or pays attention to ads. I think they're fine.

Serious question here:

I'm not seeing whatever ads you all are talking about. Unless it's the one banner ad at the very top of the page. Where are they ?

So are you going to pay for the server costs, etc, etc?

I think they look fine, no need to complain or call it intrusive... It's not like they are selling ***** enlargers or crap like that.

You have adware/spyware, most likely.

Nah, but some folks can be *****es at times, and I guess that's for the times when tempers get the better of them.
