How would you guys feel if I were to put adsense on the forums? It will help to bring in some money to help keep the site and hopefully the FTP alive. The ads will only be small but how would you feel about them being there?

I'm not a fan of Google myself, but text ads are fine.

Well I use Adblock so I don't see any of this stuff anyway, so I don't mind.

The front page is rarely visited. Thats why if I put them on the forum they would display on every page, just under the title and nav links and just above the "BETAArchive.co.uk Forum Index" text. A forum I regularly visit does this and its quite discreet, and you can choose to ignore them if you choose since they are text ads.

Anyways, I have adblock enabled at the moment, so I won't be seeing the ads.

Wow...that sucks. Well, that's Google for you. They disabled my account when I had them as well, so dont feel bad -_-.

You could try Yahoo's ad program, or Clicksor. Both of them are pretty good at bringing in the dough. I use Clicksor myself, and often times get more per click than I did with Adsense anyway.

I'm not a fan of Google Adsence at all ... sodding ads everywhere ... :?

Having said that, my girlfriend did get a cheque for $100 off Google for her site not so long ago!

Adsense rejected the application because of my previous website where I was accused of clicking my own ads, and I havent found any other decent advertisers.

Well, It wouldn't bother me, 'cause adsense server is blocked in my browser. So, go on, I hope it makes you some money.

For those of you who havent bothered to read my posts (and thats a fair few of you) you would have known that adsense is not coming to the forums because they rejected the application. Since I doubt itll ever happen Im going to lock this thread for now.
