I am wondering if some can fill me in on why all of a sudden there is all of these little google ads all over the web pages?  Is this on every ones or is my puter sick, it is sort of annoying, IMO.  just looking for answers, I know this site is a business, so if is is dollars then I'll have to live with it, I guess.

Its not just you. They were added on purpose.

Which ones do you find particularly annoying? (What pages and what location?)

And yes, it is an attempt at additional revenue.

Thanks.

Well, my lady just hates them period.      But in time will get use to them.  

I just hate them between the post reply and thread your reading.   Not for me to read an advertisement and trying to post a reply as now.     Others are in a good spot.

They don't bother me.  If they help with the revenue of the site, its ok with me.  Most sites you visit have some kind of ads.  I just ignore them.

Agree, If these help to defer some cost for the site they can be a good thing. Ocassionally I even read them .

The google ads are not a bother just the poopups that are a pain in the a$$. Definitely if it helps with revenue then I can live with it.

I am all for what it takes to increase revenue, the only thing that I am against is popup's.  But, I have 3 popup blockers, so I wouldnt know if i got any or not.

For the record, I hate pop-ups too.  As long as C3VR is under my control, there will NEVER be pop-up ads.

There are currently pop-up private messages, and there have been in the past (and may be in the future) pop-up important messages relating to C3VR or your C3VR account.

The reason the Googls ads are between the text of a thread and the reply box is that not everyone reading the thread will reply. So, they will get to the bottom and stop scolling.  If the ads were below the reply box, when they got to the reply box and stopped scrolling, they'd never see the ads.  The ads won't make C3VR any money if they are never seen...because if they are never seen, they'll never get clicked on.

Thanks for the feedback and support, gang!!  You're the best!

Adam, do these "Ads" have counters, that tell the advertisers how many "hits" they get off of this site? If so, I might actually start checking some out, just to add to the total.
I really do not like going to other sites that I am not familiar with...I don't wish to make my 'puter sick!

Yes, the more clicks on the ads, the better...but technically, I'm not supposed to solicit clicks.  So only click if you find the advertised link interesting and something you'd like to find out more about.

As far as your concern about going to unfamiliar sites...there are no guarantees, but I'd have to say you're less likely to find a problem going to one of these sites, becuase they have to pay Google to display their ad.  I'd think a site with malicious intentions are not very likely to pay to advertise their malicious site.

Here I go again!
I didn't have any problem with these ads to begin with. But now, I have a stoopid question concerning the "Google" stuff.(Which, by the way, is NOT showing on this page right now! )

My "Post Delay" problems started about the same time the "Google" ads appeared.(I actually noticed it shortly after, maybe a week or so) Is this just a co-winky-dink, or could there be any relation between the two? If there is something I can do/change on my end that would help keep me from having to sit here for such a long time, waiting for my post to appear, I would sure appreciate that info. I ain't gettin any younger...

Joel, I don't think it's yer puter or the ads. I think Adam may hafta check the site. I have found today that C3VR is especially slow. I tried a couple of other sites wit no problem. I also e-bayed and romped around on the net wit out any problem. But when I come back to C3VR I find it ta be really SSSS-LLLL-OOOO-WWWW.....
So I'm chalkin this one upta Adam ta lqqk @. I know that's a shame ta you cause I know yer missin them puter boys down at the store!
