Re: Feedback on embedded ads

Recommended Posts

I have added ads in between posts. These would help to generate funds that we badly need to pay for the server. What do you think of them? Any comments is welcomed. Are they irritating or distracting? Could any improvements be made?

Although there is an understandable reason behind this, I don't think it's a good idea. Ads are just plain annoying. If you have an experience with ads, they just get in the way. And they're very distracting. If we're trying to focus on the role play, we should stick to that. But, if they're needed to pay for the server, I think it's a sacrifice people will be willing to make.

How is it distracting?

example, you're reading through a thread where the last post of the page is a cliff hangar. When you go to next page, an ad appears first and breaks the flow of reading and thoughts. I get annoyed at ad intervals BUT like Temari says, if it's for the rp severs then I'm more than willing to bare with it.

 

If I weren't a student, I'd donate as well.

i haven't seen anything really annoying about them yet.  Id just say as long as their not huge and obnoxious then i dont mind it for the greater good of the site.

At least with the layout on the 'side' of the forum, it doesn't seem as intrusive as say 'pop-ups/unders' or horizontal banners.

Does that mean those embedded between posts should go away?

'Between posts'?  I never noticed any. o_O

 

But yeah, if that was the case, then those should go.

 

This seems to contradict with previous feedback. Interesting. I'm always fascinated by how people browse the internet. Oh, here's something off topic but might interest you:
