Carnage Blender Ads (in General)

SNK3R April 21 2007 3:37 PM EDT

I'm thinking of turning the ads on provided they do something beneficial.

Are there any benefits to the community or to the site itself to having the ads on?

SNK3R April 21 2007 3:40 PM EDT

Actually, I can't even see any ads after turning them on.

Why can't I see ads!? :(

Xenko April 21 2007 4:33 PM EDT

Because you are a supporter?

SNK3R April 21 2007 4:36 PM EDT

So? Selecting 'Show Ads' in the Settings should still let me view ads...

SundariZelia [The Knighthood] April 21 2007 4:36 PM EDT

I don't see them either, I am a supporter but I still have ads turned on.

[RX3]Cotillion April 21 2007 4:43 PM EDT

There is a check box that allows you to see ads under settings.

SNK3R April 21 2007 4:44 PM EDT

Yes, I know. I already have that selected, which is the basis of my second post in this thread. :)

QBBast [Hidden Agenda] April 21 2007 4:45 PM EDT

I think there's a check box, where you turn them on. Then you can see them.

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] April 21 2007 4:47 PM EDT

Maybe it's a theme issue, have we got any supporter who CAN see them?

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] April 21 2007 4:49 PM EDT

in an odd aside, anyone else find that the Default theme is much faster than Modern Mono?

SNK3R April 21 2007 4:50 PM EDT

Oh, boy.... Am I that difficult to understand? :)

Let's try this once more:

1) I've already selected the checkbox to show the ads, however ads still don't appear anywhere on the site. Why? Novice's suggestion of themes is valid, but I tried looking through on the Default with no success of finding any ads.

2) If I ever do get any ads, is there any benefit to the community or the site to have them on?

[RX3]Cotillion April 21 2007 4:52 PM EDT

Hmm.. I just turned them on. I don't remember seeing ads anywhere else besides forging, and that's where I just found them. Try using a couple of ba forging SNK...

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] April 21 2007 4:52 PM EDT

I even tried logging out to see if that did it...

SNK3R April 21 2007 4:53 PM EDT

Woo-Hoo! Sporadic ads for forging!

[RX3]Cotillion April 21 2007 4:53 PM EDT

Oh and btw... 'Google AdSense: CB gets paid a small amount for clicks. It defaults to opening
in this window & closing chat; to avoid this, use right-click, open in new window/tab.'... so i guess it does help?

QBBast [Hidden Agenda] April 21 2007 4:55 PM EDT

I think it's in "Settings". There's an option, if you're a supporter.

SNK3R April 21 2007 4:56 PM EDT

Bast, you're completely not understanding anything we're saying. :P

QBBast [Hidden Agenda] April 21 2007 4:58 PM EDT

Well, if you aren't clever enough to figure it out on your own, and you won't listen to me, then I give up. It's not my job to tell you how to ... oh, wait. Wrong thread.

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] April 21 2007 5:17 PM EDT

did you forget and take your "happy" pills twice this morning Bastie?

[RX3]Cotillion April 21 2007 5:18 PM EDT

She was too busy picking and flossing the bagel she ate out of her teeth. ;)

Mikel April 21 2007 5:19 PM EDT

So funny, I'm still waiting for the laugh.

I have Ads enabled and I don't see anything. I think it's more of a non-supporter vs supporter thing.

QBBast [Hidden Agenda] April 21 2007 5:20 PM EDT

I understand perfectly! How dare you impugn my ability to understand! What is wrong with you?!?!?

smallpau1 - Go Blues [Lower My Fees] April 21 2007 5:27 PM EDT

i only remember the ads during fighting and forging

Vicious Cat April 21 2007 5:39 PM EDT

Bast, I'm sure I remember a three-year-old thread where SNKR called you a dizzy female who could only use a computer for ironing. I'd sort him out if I were you

SNK3R April 21 2007 5:42 PM EDT


Slashundhack [We Forge Our Own Stuff] April 21 2007 6:47 PM EDT

LOL this valdville stuff made me tear up and giggle !

Sir Woot April 21 2007 8:23 PM EDT

Wait, if SNK3R can't see adds and Bast is confused, who's on first?

Daz April 21 2007 11:43 PM EDT

He certainly is.

Daz April 22 2007 10:16 AM EDT

I turned off the ads. then forgot about it. The only thing I noticed different is that I randomly get the following text inside a banner sized table cell thing;

"Click exchange: the more people click on ads displayed on CB, the more CB's ad
will be displayed on other sites. Feel free to use right-click, open in new window/tab."

[RX3]Cotillion April 22 2007 11:28 AM EDT

That, I guess, would be considered an ad. I haven't seen it since I've become a supporter, so I'm not sure what is up with that.

AdminG Beee April 22 2007 2:02 PM EDT

Once at zero BA I receive adds about 20% of the time if I continue to click fight from the Allowance Exceeded page.

Blarg April 23 2007 2:01 AM EDT

This is a great thread :P. Nice to see everybody go semi-off-topic so quickly

Daz April 23 2007 6:41 AM EDT

I actually meant to say that I turned them on and forgot that had turned them on. Then noticed that I saw that... Sorry.

Unappreciated Misnomer April 23 2007 6:57 AM EDT

ads? havent seen any since cb1

AdminNightStrike April 23 2007 12:39 PM EDT

"Are there any benefits to the community or to the site itself to having the ads on?"

As I recall, google only pays on a click, not on an impression (unless that changed). So just looking at the ads does nothing. You have to click on something.

[RX3]Cotillion April 23 2007 12:43 PM EDT

Which is why you right-click > open in new tab > let it load > close. :)

Daz April 24 2007 11:11 AM EDT

Hey! Now I actually see an ad in there :)

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] April 25 2007 10:53 AM EDT

I clicked on the box that shows up on the out of BA page and an AD appeared!

Eurynome Bartleby [Bartleby's] April 25 2007 10:57 AM EDT

Ads are like the UFOs of CB now, aren't they?
