    Advertising Banners

    Did TG just start advertising or did my ad blocker thingy glitch out for some reason?

    Sorry TG, but I didn't contribute to the Right2Game campain ($$$) to see all these crappy adds everywhere.

    My 3 gold stars gotta be worth a few years of use ad-free. :(

    In Firefox, when your banner loads it appears as one might expect:

    Name:  aatg1.JPG

    When scrolling down the page, the banner ad gets mostly cropped off, making it impossible to see and more importantly, very difficult to click through. This will impact your Click Through Rate.

    If memory serves, wasn't the TG database/forums intended to be ad free with support coming from other non database endeavors? I believe on one of the SotG episodes it was referred to as either "The Church" or "The Holy Grail" (or perhaps both) of gaming scores.

    This concept has changed I assume?

    These ads are pretty bad. Is this what new members are supposed to be presented with? Especially offensive is the first ad that wants you to install software, but is meant to look like part of Twin Galaxies login process.

    The site is slow enough as it is. How much extra time is added to each page to harvest our data and display ads?

    Your speed might be faster than mine, so I guess YOU were the first to send a message. :P
