As most of you will see there are new advertisements up on the board. Unfortunately this site is not free to run so I have placed these up to help with site upkeep. I am one of the people who hate dealing with ads though (those video ads with sound on yuku make me want to puke), so I have made them simple to get rid of. All you have to do is sign up and reach 10 quality posts and the ads will disappear. This seems to be a win-win, as those members who regularly visit and contribute to the board won't have to deal with advertisements and I can still earn back some of the money spent by displaying ads to guests. Hopefully it will provide some incentive for all of those lurkers to sign up and chime in occasionally. I'm going to kind of experiment around with this and see how it goes. If I start seeing a lot of spam posts around I will do away with it. Any feedback/criticism on the subject is certainly welcome.
