Banner Ads

Yes, we're testing the placement of some new banner ads. Things appear to be working in such a way that the first few posts in each topic will display a banner after the post (so far it appears it is limited to a total of two banners per page).

These banners are configured to display only graphic based ads. There is a slightly shorter banner I have configured for testing that only displays text links and was appearing on the first three posts. We may switch between these over the next few weeks to evaluate appearance and revenue.

I'm hoping the banners aren't too distracting for our regular users but will help generate a little revenue from the message boards. Please let me know if there are any issues you have in viewing the message boards because of the inclusion of the banners in their current form.

Thanks & Happy Posting!

They don't bother me.

The TLMB should able to bring in a little cash just for putting up with curmudgeons like me.

So what happens if I post first to a thread and I don't like the commercial that plays on my space?

It potentially varies every time you visit (unless we sell the banner ourselves). The ads are provided by Google and if possible it will try to match the banner up with the content.

Well in that case I'm sure some of the gentlemen here would love to see what pops up when the content is 'toddies'.
