Default The ads

This is a great site dont get me wrong. I plan on staying around for along time but one that that bugs me or is awkward is having those ads in between posts in a topic. I'm sure I will get use to it but is there a reason they have to be in the middle of posts? I've just never seen a site do that before.

It's called revenue generation.

Actually, I seldom ever notice them myself.

I know why ads are on the site. But why in the spots they are? I do agree though as I've been around I dont notice them as much either. At first though they were pestering me. My main point is that usually ads are at the top and bottom of the site not in between posts.

I guess it just makes it more noticble (you prove my point by saying you see them ). I dont even notice them anymore. I didnt even know they existed untill a week after i started posting. I dont really care though, if that is what it takes to keep TF up, im all for it.

I can agree with that . I think I may actually donate once I buy my new computer.

I never noticed them until you just mentioned them now.

Thats what i was like untill someone else asked the same thing about the ads every 3 posts. I was surprised.
