Hence I was only justifying the ones in the signatures.Quote:
That would be because you are making money from them. Duh. Now get them the hell out of my sig. kthx
I hate them as much as you do, but you gotta have them somehow.
Now, on that note. Here is how adsense works:
They give you an amount based on the proportion of views to clicks. With that being said, the more views and less clicks, WAY less moolah to pocket.
So, if you decrease it to 1-2 that are like in the first post of the thread and one to the side or something, you would maximize the income from your adsense.
No, what I'm saying is: I can't do 100% of everything a couple of members (or x members) want. That doesn't mean I'm not listening to members and even x members. If I wasn't listening to members I wouldn't have added all of the other upgrades that I did. I know that some members don't think about things like bills we have to pay, I can see how they'd be so quick to complain. Hopefully by now I've said it enough.
These boards are quite the eyesore now. I bet you've already lost at least 10 members because of these ads. Literally the most ads I've seen in a forum, good job.
Does no one here use an ad blocker?
Sweet, I must try it
Oh wow good deal, I don't see a single ad nor their whitespace.
I said I don't hate QJ. Not that I don't log in. Stop trying to pull a flame-fest dude. You both are reasons that hold me back from wanting to log in again, even though I know that I'll have to in order to view more posts (i.e. to see your reply).Quote:
If you hate it so much, why even log onto QJ?
You just come here to ***** and complain it seems. Don't say you come here to contribute either as you haven't made a contributing post in what? Two or three months?
All you're doing is complaining. Everyone needs to stop *****ing about the ads. QJ needs to earn money to keep the site going. They already upgraded the forums and that's great. That means they can now focus on tweaking the site and adding new features.
Give them a break. If having ads on your page is so frustrating, either get an adblocker or go elsewhere such as MfM.
So Shawn, show me (and everyone else), that you can truly make this site decent, and I will do everything in my power to help. Just don't expect me to loan you thousands of dollars for a house if you won't be able to pay me back on it.
QJ was running just fine without ads in the times of Mysticales. So why now?
Also, I use Google Chrome, so no Ad-Block for me either. Firefox looks so ugly to me now.
I'd donated several times in the form of premium membership. Now, I don't think I'd be donating $500 plus though, sorry.
I don't feel patriotic for this site, It just all the *****ing and complaining is getting a little out of hand and annoying.
Honestly, being as objective as I can be, cannot see what the big deal is. I removed a ton that people were complaining about like the signature ad and the skyscrappers and a few others. There's now only a couple leader boards and some text links. Is that really so bad? I mean if they were pop ups (like QJ had back in 05, then pspupdates.com) I could see something to complain about.
At this point anything helps. As I've been saying, I want to do a lot more community stuff like contests and the few ads in the forums can eventually lead up to a nice prize for that. Wouldn't you agree?
Seriously, I mean complaining because there's a banner on your screen the size of someones signature picture doesn't make sense to me. Should I remove everyone's ability to post an image in their signature too, because if a google banner bugs someone so bad, those banner sized signatures must just be hell on the eyes.
