It is in bad taste. Adblocks here were only necessary when we had ads that flew across the page and slapped you in the face.

And the ads only appear if you aren't logged in.

Oh, that's good. I was disappointed in juggle and just turned on adblock.

Still makes the site look tacky for visitors, but as long as I can't see it.

I would support ads for logged in members too. Add a "premium" perk that turns ads off if you have been here for a certain amount of time or if you pay like 5 bucks.

That's nice. But if that ever happens, like it did in DDO's past when you were not here, everyone would use adblock plus.

the reason why members don't have ads is because we're more likely to be "content creators", so they want to encourage us to add stuff to DDO. Visitors can't be content creators, so they have less of an incentive of worrying about them leaving.

If this is true, ads will discourage new members from joining.

It's a reflex of me to post that every time someone posts that phrase.

Hey, I'll throw in a dollar.

Time to start a DDO charity drive thread perhaps ?

Why would anyone here care about ads? I hope nobody is stupid enough to actually click on the links.

I don't know which ad to click first!! Oh Gawd, there is another great ad. Weightloss supplements that cause oily farts? I must buy this 'Alli' product."

I'm gonna whore myself out to this Ad update.
Any company that pays 30 cents per click can take over my signature block.

We need to contact Nate and have him upgrade the signature blocks to include hyperlink images.
