I'm all for Eric making some money to support the site, but can we not put the horizontal ads right in the middle of the posts? Looks very clunky, just my opinion. Can it be moved above the first post?
I agree. They distract from the design and flow of forum posts. I was experimenting with this today. They're gone now.

Haha, I had to do a double take when I saw how fast this was addressed and completed. Did you not even want to see how it would work with having an ad bar above the first post?
I never even noticed! OH right, because I paid for premium. Despite what people think, the internet isn't free and I'm sure that Eric isn't "making" money, I bet he's barely recouping his costs. Usually these smaller niche sites are labors of love and often the people who run them loose money.

I think eventually with a stronger sense of community and more active members the site will grow and find it's place.. will happen over night, probably not like all other great things, it takes time.. ansi svn thought I'm not seeing any money from this place It's nice to know someone's labor of love is.

I know this place has to be a labor of love and that's why I don't pester bug, or whine....(too much) about the speed at which things are around here. I think Eric is doing a fine job and the staffers too, I'm just impatient sometimes because I know just how much this place could really be if the community were better...well not better, but more active..and there is something that has to make Eric some money look at 360v for a perfect example.. it was going nowhere fast and then Krispy gamer purchased it and it looked all but doomed but it was the community that stepped up and saved it. Hell I remember the extremely annoying pop up adds that you couldn't turn off or skip,,lol man I hated those things, but the community voiced it's opinion and we had a compromise.. I say if we have to have a few more adds here and there then so be it, but please just have a bit of compromise and respect for the users who do make this place.

Even though the internet is not free, there has to be a balance with the community.. just ask mygamercard.net...I would hate to see that happen to GTN.

That's all that I want here, I belong to a great many gamer sites and see what they were, what they became, what they could be. I think with the right direction and choices this place could be ranked right up there with the big boys, but growth needs to be at a pace....am I ranting or what.. ok time to stop..just know I'm on Erics side and support his decisions good or bad and I just hope he sees that for what it is.

Thanks for the support guys. There will be an ad placed at the bottom of the first post, I just didn't like how it looked when I was initially testing it. I want to work them in slowly without hindering the user experience. Oh, and I got a laptop now, so I'm able to respond quicker. Smile
