Hi all,

You may have noticed a new banner ad at the top of the page. Well Im trialing the ads to try and bring in a bit of money. To help run the server etc. If they start to get intrusive, let me know and Ill see what I can do.

Remember this is only a trial and may not be permanent.

Thanks,

Andy (Admin)

Once I know they're working Ill adblock them as well but they're not intrusive and don't slow the page down so for now Im not too bothered.

They are causing the pages to take slightly longer to load (yes i do use adblock but i turned off to test the ads). Would it not be better to use google ads as they are less intrusive and they may make you more money?

You want to fight with Google? I used them before and they accused me of clicking on my own ads the b*****ds. Now they won't let me apply at all.

yeah
that's a major problem
Google's the best but their a bitch too...
Like I was gone for a MONTH and I took down my entire site (NOTHING on the server except a "go away" indexpage) and they said that I was spam clicking my links and that I had "illegal" stuff...
though I think its more their unorganized and the reg. keys in the ad code are getting mixed up between sites

If you find it slow then use adblock to get rid of them. They are only there to bring in a bit of money for running the server and the site. It IS expensive you know.

I've just added some more ads from AdJug.com. Again if you do not like these you can stop them by using AdBlock or adding a host to localhost in your hosts file (that one is complicated though).

For me they are a major annoyance because the last times I tried to access BA topics, they prevented the site from loading and threw up an error message. So, the ads are literally preventing me from using BA, that's why I killed them off by redirecting them to 127.0.0.1 in the hosts file. Sorry.

In fact you know what, stuff the ads. I can't have it on my mind that BA might be losing visitors this very second!!

They're ALL removed now. Looks like my pocket is going to have to get a little deeper eh?
