Sup guys, going to try once again to insert ads into a style which does not apparently support any mods whatsoever.

Yeah...maybe put them at the bottom of the page instead? Me no wanna turn on adblock for the site; I've had it disabled before but if that ad is always sitting up there...

That actually makes more sense anyway, to have it at the bottom instead of the top....

Well give it a little bit; it might look better once there's an actual ad on it. Also I can change it to get rid of the text on the bottom.

I sort of want it on the top because that is where the most eyeballs go. But if it still looks too intrusive in a few hours, I'll move it.

How about I also prepare for a bottom-of-site version too just in case the top isn't gonna work out.

Also be reasonable; it's a LOT better than interstitial post ads.

So, I'm guessing you're doing this because you need a bit more income?

That last part is true.... Like on deviantArt?

I am largely doing this because I know that the forums take up a lot of space and if I can generate SOME revenue from it, that will make things a lot easier.

Now instead of having a large leaderboard ad up top, I could have button ads or half-banner ads up there instead and keep the leaderboard on the bottom.

That would be much better--I just now noticed you have TWO of these things, one on the top and one on the bottom. :P

Right now it's just the same ad cloned.

I find it a tad bothersome. It's not like I'm going to visit the forum less or anything, I'd just rather have my sideways scrolling less wacky (Wii :P )

Why do so many people browse this site on the Wii

I don't so I don't know what the issue is; you're going to have to explain that

I browse using my own custom browser on my own custom OS on the smartphone that I build with my bare hands. You better make the forum work for me.

Nah, it works fine for me. But the "your ad here." sign is really obnoxious. I'd much rather have an actual ad. Hopefully you'll get some up soon.

Well apparently soon after I started this, Project Wonderful immediately went down in order to do coding updates. Sigh. We should know by tomorrow or something.

Well I hope it funds you well. There are actually some ads that I have clicked on from this comic. FW! Adventures and Sandra & Woo. (I like the first one better) Seems like good advertising for whoever posts it here. I hope it is appropriate. :s

When I zoomed in, it was nice having the avatars and signitures relatively on the same side or the screen as the message. when the text is centered I find myself spending extra time scrolling sideways to see what user posted which text and vice versa. For short 1 sentence posts I actually found myself accidentally passing them. All in all it's a bit wonky. I'm not going to complain though, it's your forum ;)

So what you're saying is that all the text is centered? (It would have been nice if you actually said that.)

. . . aaaand PW has extended their downtime by five hours, great

Post subject:  Re: Adding ads

It's not so much the lack of an ad period that bothers me, it's where it is (and how BIG it is). The bottom one doesn't bother me so much, the top one does, and two of them seem redundant to me. If there must be one at the top, it would seem to make more sense to have it be between the logo on the left, and the text on the right (in other words, above the "User Control Panel, Private messages, FAQ, Search, Members, Login/Logout" bar), rather than where it is. And I don't see the point of having two at all.

Post subject:  Re: Adding ads

Uh... I'm supposing that this might be related to the changes in ad format, so... am I the only one who is now seeing everything that used to be to the left now centered?

Never mind, I can now see that some other people have mentioned it as well. It's not annoying or anything, I just thought that something might be wrong with my computer.

Perhaps it's 6 cents per rotation.
