Post Get rid of the ad banner.

I do every thing to block these things and now one pops up in the Vendor forum I nave sucsessfully blocked out over 90 ad banners but this one is being stubborn.

My Virus program does a good job of blocking the ad banners so they are just blank.

My computer has no "active" virus checker, and I've never seen any banners around here. But there is that same stubborn white Scooby on the homepage, day in...day out.

Yeah...my white scooby should grace the homepage. Wha'dya say Scrappy?

As for the banner...yup it's there, I never noticed till you brought it up. It's just an image, not a link like most banner ads - maybe that's why your software doesn't strip it.

Oh come on Scrap! At least they could post a different pic of your car. And change the title from:

"Scooby of the Week"

to:

"Scooby of the Whenever We Feel Like Changing it to Another Car."

As much as I hate banner ads I think its only fair that this site is paid for somehow. This site is a great service to most of us and it would not be here if Nick and Alex didn't put so much time as well as their own money into it. These ads help pay the bills. And as far as I have noticed they seem to be Scooby ads anyways. Its not like we are getting ads for Barbie's Dream house on sale at Toy's R Us!

Yeah, I feel I must voice my support for the ad as well. There's no such thing as a free lunch. The collapse of the "get everything for free" internet has made this quite evident.

But I do feel strongly that they should cycle the scooby-of-the-week more often. If they don't, mine'll never make it up there.

free is fine but we have been paying Alex.

At the bottom of the page is fine but I'm wearing out my mouse scroll wheel with them at the top.

Dave, I see them on every page.

Oh NO! You said your PAYING him, what ever you do don't say your paying for the site. I did this and felt the wrath of Imprezer you are suppose to say your DONATING to him.

"...we have been paying Alex..."

Hehe, funny, David, very funny. Thanks a lot, but I don't know if you know, but we have only asked for the $ for the new server and we got about $2700. That was just enough to cover the cost of a nice DELL machine. And, how much did you "pay"? $20? $60? $100?

Now, the club has been running since November of 1998. Since May 1999, the club is running on a T1 line. That T1 line costs $1200 per month. Now its May of 2001. Thats 24 month multiplied by $1200. You do the math and remember, that Holy Spirit doesn't pay for that.

Banners will help us make this place better and maybe even give us some extra $ to do different fun things like contests, paid track events, etc.

David, next time, please, use your head before saying something as serious as that.

I know it wasn't going to be a popular statement, but I have an opinion. Sorry, I just hate ad banners right at the top of the page. All the others at the bottom and when you submit a post are great.


Your welcome Alex.

Can't complain, but it'd be nice if they were at the bottom...or if they were static old-school banners instead of this motion crap.

Hey if it keeps the site going, I can live with it.
Alex and Nick can`t be expected to foot the bill for a site everyone uses.
That`s 6443+ resistered users and only $2700 was donated.

I say keep up the good work.


*edit*
My one question would be how will this effect a sponser like BPM? What if, and god forbide they pull a J* Sp*rts. Will they get banned? Stuff like this.

Whoa!
My former employer looked into getting a T-1 for internet connectivity. I convinced my boss to check out DSL instead. The T-1 would have been 800-1200/MO but the DSL is only $120 a month for similar speeds. Sure, the CIR isn't there, but even getting a DSL line with CIR wouldn't be THAT much...
dang.

I'm with Horatio here. There are much more cost effective solutions to a T-1 line.

Well if you don't like ads just download this:
http://www.adsubtract.com/se/features.html

It's freeware. I used to use it and works good enough. This way you don't have to see the ads but the site will keep being funded.

Sorry guys... DSL just isn't stable enough in bandwidth or uptime to use it for a web server. And as I'm sure the tech folk know... most places won't give you a static IP which really makes web hosting a bit of a fiasco.

I know it's cheap, but that's for a good reason... it sucks... it might be really fast (sometimes)... but it's not good (for real web service at least)... that is why it's so cheap. And I can only imagine the hate mail I would get if the server wasn't up because the connection was down.

As far as bad vendors having banner ads, yes we have planned for this... we are only going to have vendor banners on a monthly basis... if someone sucks they have a month in the sun... if they screw up the most we have to suffer with the banner is a month.

We really are going to make sure this banner thing dosen't become a problem, but you have to understand... running a site this large costs money, and a good deal of money... and someones got to foot the bill.

And as SubieGal suggested... I don't think any of you want to cough up a $10 membership fee each year.. so a few banner ads will have to do. And please don't tell me you would support a membership fee because that's an all of nothing... and I know all 6000+ member in not a snowballs chance in hell would pay up. I like the idea... but in reality it would never work.

$10 per year sounds cheap to me. Lot cheaper than a lot of other one marque car clubs where you just get a decal and a cheesy newsletter.

Why do some people have to be so picky...? I don't have a problem with it.. it doesn't hurt me.. or my computer.. I don't really even notice it. If it's there for the betterment of this site... let's just support it. If some people are not happy with the ads.. they can always elect not to go into the site. If you don't like what you see.. don't look.

I get migraines from flashing although that is pretty slow flashing. My eyes are very touchy. Sorry I started this.

PS, Thanks Nick for such a calm well worded reply. take note.

It's not necessary to flame someone and break the rules to get a point across.
