        Or Pop-under ads (same thing as far as I'm concerned) are not effective. Ads that are smaller and built-in to the website with the least amount of graphics and gifs are more effective and are way more likely to be clicked on. Eventually marketers will realize this....unfortunately, when they do, websites will start to almost confuse people with ads and content being very similar looking. But at least there will be fewer ads.
        And eventually they'll all goto text only...once they see how incredibly effective they are.

          It's ok, as long as the ads do not open a second window when attempting to close them. Those multiple pop unders are a real pisser.

          Also, none of the semi-invisible windows, the ones that you have to close all other windows in order to get to and some you just need to quite and restart.

          Also, make sure they’re not too heavy. I've in broadband now, but it still pisses me off when I have to deal with a large add that even slightly slows things down. And nothing pisses a 56K user more then bandwidth hogging ads.

          Also, (Not again!) make sure that the text in window before graphics are loaded is descriptive. There have been a hand full of times when I closed an ad just as the graphic appeared and as it closed realized I was interested.

          In the end I agree with the above post. Small adds and adds in general that actually give some explanation as to where they lead have a higher chance in catching interested parties.

                  Happy now? :) Actually, the pop-ups around here don't seem to surface for me. As long as it's only 1, I don't see why it is a problem.

                    The votes are a lot closer than I would have expected them to be - but we still need more people to vote!

                      In an ideal world we wouldn't have any ads, but these ads mean, as Mr Tweak says, that TweakTown will be able to provide a better level of service and continue to grow.

                      So Popunder ads = more resources = better content

                      If you disagree with the ads, keep in mind that the content is free to you and has to be paid for somehow.

                        First of all, I would like to thank Mr. Tweak for once again putting us folks first.

                        Not everyone would be so sensitive to the desires of a gang of misfits like those of us that gather at this fountain of knowlege.
                        You da' man Mr. Tweak

                        Now I must admit that I don't find pop-up/under ads to be very appealing - though on rarest of occasion they do actually hold content that is of interest to me, if so I click.

                        But the fact that Mr. Tweak finds enough merit in the prospect to consider it, indicates to me that perhaps he deems it desirable on a financial level.

                        Seems to be a fair appraisal on my part to say that I've probably burned up my fair share of bandwidth here at TweakTown - even my 2+kbs adds up over time.
                        If allowing the advertisers to utilize this tactic will enable Mr. Tweak to offset the costs incurred through operation of this site, then by all means give it a try and see if it helps.
                        I truly hope it will work out well for all of us if such a venture is implemented.

                        So go for it Mr. Tweak, and I'll do my very best to keep looking at the positive side of things here at my online home away from home.

                        I guess no one will know exactly how this will turn out until we give it a try -- I'm up willing to give it a fair chance for both our sakes
                        :cheers:
