Pop Ads

We have the opportunity to add advertising which would pop a window UNDER the main browser, ONE time per day.

How do you guys feel about this? Would you be OK with it? Or is even one ad per day too intrusive?

Personally, I think it'll be a little intrusive.

But if by having that one ad will generate a reasonable amount of revenue for Revscene to keep it free, I'm sure the majority of us wouldn't mind an extra ad, especially if it's actually just ONCE a day.

If it keeps Revscene in business and pays for !SG's golden toilet I'm all for it.

There wouldn't be sounds, and there wouldn't be adult ads.

It should be fine only if the ad does not contain sound.

I get text ads like google and whatever is in the awesome bar.
I browse with multiple revscene threads using multiple tabs.

I've got tons of screen real-estate (24" monitor).
I'd rather give up some forum browsing space (let's say both a strip on the right and left) rather than have to deal with pop-ups or unders.

I never really considered this, but I use Ad-block plus, how does that choice affect the RS income?

I don't mind once a day either if it helps alleviate server costs. +1 on the no sound ads as well, those ones are really annoying.

If it keeps the site free, I'm ok with it...

...but then I'd also be willing to pay if it meant getting rid of ALL the ads

why even ask? if people get bothered to a once per day ad in order to help their free online addiction generate some revenue, they don't deserve anything.

definitely not against it.
for the daily hilarity RS ensures me, having pop up ads isnt a big price to pay!
