Precisely the point. Fantastic business strategy; capitalize on the fuckups of your customers.

The only thing I'm personally annoyed about is the new placement of the banner. Guests can't contribute anything but hits anyway, so you might as well take advantage of that.

This link does a poor job of comparing directly the premium and non-premium benefits. So, here's a summary:

Premium Benefits Compared to Non-Premium
- A larger avatar
- Animated avatars are allowed
- A signature
- More space allotted for PMs
- More recipients allowed for PMs
- Can track your messages
- Can start arcade tournaments
- Unlimited access to the arcade (non-premiums can only play 10 times a day)
- Unlimited photos in your photo albums
- Ability to e-mail members
- Added space for attachments to posts
- Custom User Title
- View who's online
- Can view iSpy
- Can start polls
- Can view Mr. Pussy's Cafe de Luxe

So, basically, you have a little more creativity (user titles, signatures, and slightly larger avatars), some more space (albums, attachments, PMs), you can use the arcade more, and you can start polls and see Mr. Pussy's Cafe de Luxe.

Based on that, it's up to the members whether or not they think it's worth it to be premium.

It's not that big of a deal to me, but it all looks pretty tacky. Am I allowed to say this?

Log out and visit the forum. The talking ads pop up.

It'll be interesting to see how this affects new membership once the album comes out and the tour dates are announced.

If you are one that likes to lurk without logging in, you can disable the roll over ads by rolling over one, click the question mark in the top left corner of the box, then in the new window click on the 'disable ads' tab.

Personally, the banner ads really don't bother me, I almost never scroll to the bottom of the page anyway and I am always logged in so the 'guest' ads don't bother me either. The moving of the top banner is just something to get used to, like everything else. I'm already pretty much used to it.

My 2 cents? For what it's worth?


1. Ad is placed right where your eyes naturally fall on the screen. My first reaction? If the background wasn't blue, I would have thought I was on a website for Free Ringtones.
Where it was before, I was aware of it but unless I CHOSE to read the banner, it didn't 'take over' my vision.

2. 'Interference' looks really insignificant and even more like an afterthought plonked in the top corner, just to say it's there. I realise that's where it's always been but now it looks really sad

3. If the Ad MUST stay there, along with the text bar, could you at least have the courtesy to make it a different colour? It feels really underhand and misleading to have it the same colour as the other bars....

Ok, I'll shut up now...

I think most people will get used to it pretty quickly. I know within a few days I won't even notice the ads anymore. I have noticed almost every board I frequent has ads now. Some of them have far more than IF, and I'm still able to ignore the ads and enjoy those boards. I really do think people can decide to be irritated by the ads or they can decide not to be irritated by them. I just figure nothing comes for free and if a few ads on the site are the price that's not a big problem.

And I must be honest and say that although my subconscience knew that something was 'different', I didn't know what it was until I read this thread

Guess that null and voids my other post....

All the question mark window told me was how to put those damn things in my webpage. Perhaps Safari doesn't have the option to disable.
