Google Ad experimentation continues

The operational budget for TWF exists primarily due to advertising (it's not from selling T-shirts ). Consequently, we are experimenting with the placement of ads.

There is a balance of proper placement for maximum visibility, and then there is a point where they are just plain annoying and take away from the site. Yes, it would be nice if we could eliminate them altogether but as a free site that's possible.

So, bear with us. The ads you see now may not stay there, they may be removed, change in size or who knows. There are a lot of options and all involved hacking complicated code.

1 was decent, 2 was a terrible pile of steaming s**t, and 3 wasn't far behind 2. I have only seen it once, it may be worse.

At the end of the posts was bad (as 52 million threads that Gman merged) previously proven.
The current one on top of the thread isn't bad. I've gotten used to it already.

Glad we can do advertising to keep this place free for all to gain knowledge!

Hack away ShanMan!

Thanks for the positive feedback. I reduced that one from the larger style found alllllll the way at the bottom. I figure they're much less intrusive there.

Of course of no one clicks on them they're worthless so hopefully the fine folks at Google have tuned their machine to display relevant ads.
