I don't know how much money those "Shock the monkey" ads might bring you, but they get annoying. Are they actually a source of money for you? If they were GIFs, they wouldn't be so bad. Then they'd stop when I hit escape. Because, whatever type they are, take long to load, and make the pages lag. Unless people click on them alot, what I am suggesting, before I go insane (too late), is, if you, well, wait. Let me guess, it's just a banner ad program, right? You can't choose. God dang it! Out of the things I lost, I miss my sanity the most. Oh well. Never mind. I'll go crawl in a hole now.
woohoo!!! i'm glad to see that my ever-important vote pushed the "i don't care" contingency safely into the lead, (by a vote of 2-1-0).
banner ads are a necessary evil. it takes money to run websites. if this was two years ago, jeremy could just make an ipo, take it public, and make millions; but, alas, that era is past. if it takes a shocked monkey or two to keep this site up, i'm all for it.
Distribution: Debian, Red Hat, Slackware, Fedora, Ubuntu
I'll be honest, the monkey does make a little money (The CTR on that thing in nuts). That being said, this is you're forum. If the census is that the monkey (a java applet) is a pain I will remove it. I have tried to keep annoying banners and popups off this site, but as isajera said - it takes money to run a site. So I leave it up to you, my members, to decide the monkeys fate.
I wouldn't mind the monkey so much if it weren't a java applet. Don't get me wrong, I love java. It's what I program in all day long. I wish it were just a simple jpg or gif.
Micropayments would be an interesting, if possible, option for generating revenue to run a site. I'm pretty sure not everyone would agree though. Jeremy, if you don't mind me asking, can you give a ballpark figure as to how much this site costs per month after ad revenue comes in? (granted that you can even get the revenue from some ad companies)
A while back ago, I tried to do the 'golden tips' thing. They wan't your e-mail address. IF YOU GIVE THEM THE E-MAIL ADDRESS, YOU WILL GET PORNOGRAPHIC SPAM!!!!!! If you like pornographic spam, then go for it, but if you don't, then, well, don't put your e-mail address in. I had to change my e-mail address because the porn wouldn't stop comming! AND I DIDN'T EVEN ASK FOR IT!!!!!!!
After being away so long and coming back and seeing one of my posts get so many hits I go "Wow! These people actually botherd listening to me."
BTW: Don't mind me if I mess words up in the forum now, my pinky and ring fingers on my right hand are tied together. I really don't like gym.
