...are annoying and make the site look cheap. A step in the wrong direction, IMO. I know the site needs money to run, but you would think 15 sponsors would be enough..

less annoying if they're at the top or bottom of the page at least.

Hi guys,

The admins removed the top banner for the ads now. Unfortunately some will like it some wont, but it is a necessary evil we've decided to go forward with.

Thanks.

Mark you are the admin and simple slolution put the top ads back get rid of the post ones . I know you have the power to adjust it.

its liek read a post AND WAHM!

great :rolleyes: ricer tail lights for 45.99!

ads by google

The only REASONi can assume they are in the posts is cause they are a pay per click ad. So no thats its not at the top of the page and harder to ignor and now thers is more of a chance of accidentally being clicked more $ is made.

:dunno: be nice to have it how it was :drama:

Necessary? How much does it cost to run this damn site? One sponsor should be able to cover it...

This is my public voicing of my displeasure as well.
It's like the ad in my post is endorsed by me without my knowledge. If I mention B18C1 or another buzz word, I predict an ad for a guy selling engines will pop up that isn't myself. Why am I paying to be a sponsor when other non sponsors are piggybacking my posts?

Very good point - I will check with the admins on this one - I don't know how this works well enough to give you an intelligent reply.
