Ads by Google above Header - Boo!

the new ads by google above the header makes the site looks dodgey and poor. elsewhere is fine, but its really crappy being there.

The "Photos" one had me puzzeled for a while... kinda looks like a site feature while actually an ad

Deffinetly not the best place visually - but hey if it keeps the servers running without the problems of the past I'm all for it!

We just dropped $12,000 US on new servers. I think you'll live with an extra ad or two.

Indeed, can you guys imagine how much it costs to let this forum stay online these days? I don't love those commercial things either, but I can't imagine my life without this forum! So I don't know why you are complaining actually..

Indeed, no ads with sound please (I know it's possible to refrain ad space from this crap)!


Apart from that I'm fine with the ads. Jan needs to get his bills payed.
Should we start some donation campaign?

If you guys see an ad with sound, let Jan or I know. Pay attention to the ad and see if you can find the URL or website it's advertising, then PM it to one of us (Jan would be the best choice). We'll make sure it gets reported and/or removed.

Ads aren't allowed to have sound or is it SSC's policy or something?

I noticed that since yesterday there's this Spanish astrology ad with sound. Here's the link that it leads to:

I like ads. I've found several good sites/services/etc. thru ads. Never understood why people hate them so much.

The placement at the top is not exactly the best place to put them though. But since there's no choice, their layout should be made better. Just a couple a lines of code and it can look much better.
