I hate those kinds of things so I normally don't have them on. But if it really helps the Forum I will turn it on.
DBSTalk is a great Forum and I'm always willing to do things that help the Forum :sunsmile:

I have thought of this as well since the forum had the upgrade and the top ad banner has been optional.
My guess is that DBSTalk doesn't care unless you actually click on the add to get them revenue.

Quoted from the "Forum Upgrade" thread:


Concerning the Top Ad. Do you get any benift from it just being there or does one have to click on it for it to "count"? If its the later, I'll leave it in place.

Greetings Robert...

Last post for me this evening as I have been at this upgrade from the early morning and have not left the table. Time to quite for me tonight. ;)

It can help as ads are bought in a number of ways. The ones that help here are the ones that are purchased by impression count (An impression is one VIEWING of the banner ad.). As such, the more impressions severed, the more inventory is able to be offered.

Thanks for asking.

Nite all (And Happy Holidays)

Thanks and the ad banner will be turned on :sunsmile: I'm sure I'll get used to it :)

EDIT: Gee I expected to get hit with this big banner, but I hardly even noticed it :lol: What happened :eek2: When I first looked the ad banner was small, but the second time it was indeed a good size banner. Oh well I guess I will still get used to it :)
