Banner ads on the bottom of all pages

Postby baldy » Tue Dec 20, 2011 8:56 am

We have just turned google ads on and you should see them at the bottom of all pages.
This is a bit of an emergency measure to generate much needed revenue to pay for the ongoing hosting of veganfitness.

When we had google ads in the past, it generally was not liked, it is unfortunately essential in the short term.
If you don't like the ads, please donate the US$600 to cover ones years hosting. Then we will with great pleasure remove them instantly.

Else please bear with us while we look at other revenue sources. It is possible to block the ads with an browser plugin like adblocker -> https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefo ... lock-plus/

If you see any very objectionable ads being generated please PM me the URL (the bit in green in the ad) and I can block those from being displayed. If it's a funny one just post it in this thread and we can argue about it.

Do horses even have access to the internet?

99% of horses are vegan, so I think we should keep it.

On the site there's 12 sample pictures of the type of person available. 2 are posing with dead fish and one has a gun.

Maybe we should take their money, I don't think they'll sell much on VF!

They actually sell vegan bundles, pity about the whey in the advert text. Still think we should ban them?

Double strength African Mango, sounds very vegan but unlikely to actually do much. Not Banned!

<== wonders why I can't see the ads?
"The worker has the right to leave his boss, but can she do it? And if she does quit him, is it in order to lead a free life; where she will have no master but herself? No, she leaves to sell herself to another employer. She's driven by the same hunger. Thus the worker's liberty is only a theoretical freedom, lacking any means of realization; an utter falsehood."

I'm being offered to date sexy African, Cuban and Asian women. No offers about dating anyone white, or male, yet.

Lots of vegans own and use firearms Konstantin. :) As for horse-lovers, as long as everyone consents... :twisted:

Maybe your browser has ad block (or some equivalent). I have it on chrome and firefox so don't get ads.

Exactly it is easy enough to block the ads if you don't want to see them.

I had a little brain wave this morning when I was in the bath. It should be possible to have the ads for only unregistered users. That way we can still get ad revenue and have a perk to register. What do people think about that?

Or should we just drops the adverts as soon as/if we can?

I think that we should keep the ads...they are not very intrusive and are presumably paying for the server...
