Carnage Blender Ads (in General)
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?
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!? :(
April 21 2007 4:33 PM EDT
Because you are a supporter?
April 21 2007 4:36 PM EDT
So? Selecting 'Show Ads' in the Settings should still let me view ads...
I don't see them either, I am a supporter but I still have ads turned on.
There is a check box that allows you to see ads under settings.
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. :)
I think there's a check box, where you turn them on. Then you can see them.
Maybe it's a theme issue, have we got any supporter who CAN see them?
in an odd aside, anyone else find that the Default theme is much faster than Modern Mono?

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

Woo-Hoo! Sporadic ads for forging!
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?
I think it's in "Settings". There's an option, if you're a supporter.

Bast, you're completely not understanding anything we're saying. :P
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.
did you forget and take your "happy" pills twice this morning Bastie?
She was too busy picking and flossing the bagel she ate out of her teeth. ;)
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.
I understand perfectly! How dare you impugn my ability to understand! What is wrong with you?!?!?
i only remember the ads during fighting and forging
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
April 21 2007 5:42 PM EDT
LOL this valdville stuff made me tear up and giggle !
April 21 2007 8:23 PM EDT
Wait, if SNK3R can't see adds and Bast is confused, who's on first?
April 21 2007 11:43 PM EDT
He certainly is.

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."
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.

Once at zero BA I receive adds about 20% of the time if I continue to click fight from the Allowance Exceeded page.
April 23 2007 2:01 AM EDT
This is a great thread :P. Nice to see everybody go semi-off-topic so quickly
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.
ads? havent seen any since cb1
"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.
Which is why you right-click > open in new tab > let it load > close. :)

Hey! Now I actually see an ad in there :)
I clicked on the box that shows up on the out of BA page and an AD appeared!
Ads are like the UFOs of CB now, aren't they?
