Just a quick poll. How many people would care if there were minimal ads on here. The amount there were before Juggle took over.

Put either Would Mind or Wouldn't Mind in bold.

On second thought, to put it simply, it's Would mind.

This but the "as long as..." is very important

God darnit, we're losing. Time to pack our bags and go yonder to the wondrous land of honey and dew. Yea, that would be our home for the next few years.

That was for comic effect as well...But, it's nice to see some statistics and participating, considering the sluggish pace of member activity these days...

I wouldn't mind if there were text-based ads such as Google Ads. I would mind anything that animates, talks to you, opens new windows, or requires me to wait before using site content (cough cough Webcorp).

Wouldn't mind.

Would love it, if the ads blend in with the site's simple and friendly looks.
The Holy Quran 29:19-20

See they not how Allah originates creation, then repeats it: truly that is easy for Allah.

Say: "Travel through the earth and see how Allah did originate creation; so will Allah produce a later creation: for Allah has power over all things.

Yeah the flashers and pop up would be annoying. But a simple little ad on the side if the page is nothing really.

Then they better not use "Lack of revenue" as an excuse not to work on it.

Even with the ads, they still wouldn't turn a huge profit.

At least it would help cover the cost of hosting.

They don't use the excuse of lack of revenue, they are saying they have limited resources for all their projects, and i believe them. They're looking to double their staff because they're just out straight.

Wouldn't mind as long as there are new features and the money is used for good of DDO
1) Whatever has contradictory attributes does not exist.
2) The Biblical God has contradictory attributes.
3) Therefore, the Biblical God does not exist
