    If you didn't want ad's you shouldn't have sold the site to a corperation, see in the real world devlopers like to eat and we need money for that , your choices are a subscription modle (the best way to kill a site) or ads.

    I wouldn't mind the adds if they were not advertising absolute crap.

    I mean, Some of the adds are advertising stuff to hide porn and things to cover your tracks.

    Does this not encourage the type of element on to the site that JP and others have been trying to stop since he founded the revamped Antionline. (Not the original antionline and anticode which were pro haxor sites hehe)

    I dont think I would mind the ads if they werent the entire size of my screen, last time I logged on i thought windows had finally gone a step further and personalized their site to me. All I could see was my name and a big ad.. come to think of it when did AO start advertising on microsofts webpage..

    I'd have to say in general that the level of discussion has increased dramatically since jupiter took over. Gone are the days of totally useless posts filling up forums as we now have moderators that delete posts instead of just letting them go suicidal and sit around for no reason.

    Another good thing being that most of the problems with the antipoint system were corrected. Gone are the days of being flooded with negative points because you made some kid mad and he decided to get his friends to dump a bunch of crap on ya.

    It's not really that hard to scroll down the screen to get to the content. Perhaps someone is mad that they can't get another website up and running with any kind of user base? If I were jupiter media I would remove all references to JP from the site as he is obviously just coming back around to try and start crap to get people mad at jupiter media.

    Perhaps if JP had been more involved in the community here over the last four months instead of having 3 or 4 posts that really have done nothing except for complain about the people that HE CHOSE to sell AO to, I would be more likely to take his comments as something other than an angry rant.

    yes mohaughn you are right JP chose to sell AO and everytime he comes back to AO is just to complains about JM. Everyone has his/her own views abt everyting we can consider. JP may not like it along with many other but some may chose to live with it.

    But still on this issue, just being a user i have my own views. I wouldnt really like to see a big banner like this on the top. Yes ads are imp. but not imp than ur site, the very reason why ads are here. The BIG banner annoyes me coz it makes me scroll down everytime and i really wont like to have just ADs welcoming me.

    just my views.

    You want more ads? Visit some of their other sites.

    www.internet.com for example.

    3/4ths of the page is ads...

    At least we are only at 1/4th the page being ads...

    Though... we'll be up there with www.internet.com soon enough.

    BTW: Do we have to click on the ad for them to get money? Or, does the ad just have to be displayed?
    Quitmzilla is a firefox extension that gives you stats on how long you have quit smoking, how much money you\'ve saved, how much you haven\'t smoked and recent milestones. Very helpful for people who quit smoking and used to smoke at their computers... Helps out with the urges.

    I really feel for JP I do.

    I mean its like building a kitt car from the ground up and making it a labour of love and then selling it for some extra cash. (Alot I would wager JP hehe)

    Then one day you see someone else driving the car and delivering for pizza hut with huge vinyl badges on the side.

    The engine you worked on is still in it purring like a kitten. The headlites shining and maybee even the friends you have still get use out of it but.

    When you look at it it doesn't please you. This thing you spent so much time on has been vandalised.

    But on looking at it. You got the pennies to spend on your next project.

    Kind of metaphoric here. Hope you can see what I am getting at here.

    I think we need to click them, I'm pretty sure that is what it is like for most ad company places, and companys that give people to display.

    Am I trippin or is the ad on the main page appearing and disappearing? Maybe its time to delete my cache. One moment the ad is there and then after browsing another forum and going back to the main page it is gone. Is anyone else experiencing this?

    There's a big difference, though, in this site and Internet.com ads... If you go to Internet.com, you don't have to scroll at all to see the actual content. Believe me, go there. It's ads, ads, ads, but right in the middle of the page right under "today on internet.com" is their actual stories that you go to the site to see. With AO, though, you have to seriously hit the scroll button on the mouse twice to even begin to see what you came here for. Also, I think it's funny that jupiter media owns both AO and internet.com, hehe.
