Hi all! Sorry for the lack of updates and such on things. I know member icons still need to be a thing but without help they're just not something I can really do right now, unfortunately.
One thing I've been meaning to do for a while is add ads to the site, and I've now done that. I have some important things to say about this, so please read at least the bold parts of this post.
- You are absolutely free to use ad block to block the advertisements and I will not hold it against you.
Ads are annoying, I get that. However, they're also a source of income, and maintaining the site costs a lot. As far as money goes, I don't even break even. So I'm putting them up, but you're free to get rid of them.
- If there are any offensive ads, ads you don't like, or ads that are causing problems for your computer, PLEASE LET ME KNOW AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
Don't think "oh I'lll just put up with them" or whatever, I blocked a LOT of ad categories because I want the ads to not have any misleading/potentially harmful/offensive/whatever stuff. I tried to keep it rather straightforward as far as ads go, but I might have missed something. Also, there might be ads with weird functionality, and if those bother you, let me know (take pics and stuff) so I can try to remove them somehow.
- Don't go clicking on the ads to try to help me. Please don't, that can potentially get me in trouble because it comes off as suspicious/unnatural. Do not try to feed the ads or whatever. On the off chance you actually want to click on one, that's something else, but you're really not helping me by clicking on them.
- If you have any other comments/problems/whatever with the ads, let me know. I'm using a new company based in the U.K. that is supposed to be largely gaming focused/based, but I don't know how they'll work out. The revenue could be terrible. Maybe they hardly show any gaming ads. I'd like for them to show only gaming ads, but that might not be reasonable. Who knows. Anyway, I'm keeping an open mind and I might switch if I don't like them, so yeah, that's a thing.
Thanks for your understanding/patience and take care.
EDIT: I turned off ad-block real quick to test and I'm thinking it might look better centered at the top? but maybe not? I really don't know. any opinions, with or without technical reasons as to why you feel that way? lol
