Just checking, is the site now using a new advertising method called "ContentLink"?

I'd say the question isn't "If?" but rather, is the site supposed to be using cont*ntlink, or has it been hacked?

If this is Antony's way of trying to make the board pay for itself, I don't begrudge him that, even though it makes active words very hard to read. But, if this is a hack, I say Damn their eyes, and away with them!

Yeah, that's pretty much the dichotomy that I was wondering about.

Ok, I thought I had been hijacked myself and then I saw this thread. Yeah, the colors are blue on blue. It scares me . . . same as 11 year old girls' myspace sites with anime themes.

If it's to pay for the board, that's fine. I am just glad I'm not nuts . . .or infected . . . or both.

Yeah, sorry I should have warned first considering recent events.

It's something I'm trialling, to make a few $$$.

I can change the link color.

Re: Advertisements

Do you get money just for having the links, or only if we click on them?

For clicks. Very little advertising is for impresions these days.

Re: Advertisements

Okay. I just seem to recall that we went a bit overboard on the ads one time, and Google yanked them because they thought we were cheating.

Thanks for making the links white, Antony. They're a lot easier to read now.

Yeah, don't go clicky mad.

I wonder if it's because I clicked my own links. Sometimes I would genuinely want to visit a site, but that's a no -no.
