When did we start getting ads?
I dont mind it especially since there are costs involved with running this great community, though I just noticed them today.
Have they been up long?

We had addies for a while in the past, google clickme's. Those didn't work out too well and got cancelled. We were supposed to get something else at some time. Well, guess it's now Very Happy

I only noticed them this morning. I s'pose it's a bit of a complement really, that we are "add worthy".

Yes. Sad Evil or Very Mad


I first noticed these last night- and mentioned it to the other moderators.

Generally I really don't like things that flash away at me when I'm reading. Especially if they aren't relevant to my own country. But EM is so big, it needs the money. I know websites like the Big Blue Lounge charge their members- we voted not to go down that route (although to be honest I would be happy to donate something, and I also think there are other ways of gaining revenue).

Yes, I'm trying affilate ads now. As the site keeps growing the costs of servers and networks keeps growing too. It's starting to be a big load for me to carry personally on a retirees budget.

I'm working on trying to focus this on countries appropriate to the reader but that is going to take some time.

Thanks to everyone for their patience, and any comments, suggestions and complaints are appreciated.

I'll try to keep you more up-to-date as things on this front progress.
