well maybe not on a set routine, but insteaf of ignoring the ads like most people normally would, we should all at least click a couple every once in a while ya know? Just to help out.

Because i know when i go to a forum with ads i usually leave them alone and dont even read them, but since we all enjoy this place so much we could do our part to help keep it going.

While it was a suprise, I don't mind the ads. Althoough, there'* a better chance of me actually spending money once that donate button gets here. I ain't much for mail order, but I will definitely (and have offered before) give money for this site!!

Thanks again, Jeff, for the only site I've ever found that I go to on a regular basis!!

Ugh (has to agree with Mos AGAIN)

What ads... Hey...there'* an 88 B'ville for sale at the top of the screen. Good stuff, it'* well done for not being an annoyance.

Jeff...please announce when the Donate area is up and running.

I don't mind the ads one bit. It'* worth it for all we get out of this site.
I would hope that we don't get any annoying pop ups though.

As I stated in my post on the first page. I had members of my forum do the same thing and I lost the ability of having the adds on my site. Even by posting this thread, they can remove the right to posting the adds, cause to them, it is violating the agreement.


Trust me I went through it and still cannot get the adds back, so I got screwed by members that figured they were helping.

really? thats kind of odd... well i guess that if they pay per click kind of thing and they see that we are just clicking to get paid and not even intending on buying that they would pull em... makes sense i supose.

I know you mean well, but don't do that. Google frowns upon "click fraud."

OK, one teeny tiny complaint...

I've actually seen a couple of ads worth checking out, but they take me from here to the ad'ed site. Any way to make them open in a new window instead?

right click and open in a new window. Since the script is running on googles side, that was the only way I was able to do it on my site. BUT there may be other ways.
