First off, fix the default forum setting for Serious Discussions. I have my preferences set to the original style for a reason.


Second off, that ad right smack dab in the middle of the page looks like crap. LIKE CRAP, I SAY.

I'll change the serious discussions skin back to default. It was changed because I was testing something and I didn't remember to change it back.

The ads pay for the site. I can't help it if they look like crap to you.

Don't get huffy. The ads at the top of the screen or bottom or side bar or whatever are fine. No one cares about those. I even click on em so you get your dime.

But why have it right in the middle of the thread titles? That doesn't make sense to me.

I'm giving different ad locations a trial. Each location on the page attracts a different type of user. Some people prefer the top and bottom and for some the visibility is better in the middle.

The goal is to increase money coming into darkforum so it doesn't die out. That goal was set so that df can grow and flourish so we can afford new things.

Currently, the sites competition is running circles around DF because they can due to their much much greater revenue.

I need to take control of DF and take it into the direction that is the best for it and the users and that is what the ads are for where ever they are placed.

How does it makes sense to put an ad in between thread titles. So someone inadvertently clicks it instead of a thread?

Sneaky.

How many people do you know who click on threads with out reading the thread title? You will also notice that it says "ad by google" on the bottom.

It increases the visibility of the ad so users potentially interested in the ad actually see it.

Do you get payed by click or do advertizers rent the space like in newspapers or a combination?

I use adblock because i'm growing pretty sick of the growing amount of ads on sites and i hate it when i get greeted by my fucking first name when i enter a site i never seen before or some ad that reades "MEET NEW FRIENDS FROM AMSTELVEEN!!!!111!" where just happen to life. talk about privaty infringement. i dont even know how a website obtains that info. does it hack my adressbook or something?

anyway, if adblock harms this site i'm willing to allow the ads on this site
