First of all sorry for the ads. I m trying to cover some costs this way (and also to experiment with adsense). I m trying to make them, discreet but effective to attract a click. If you find that these ads offend you then please post it here.

Secondly, i ve updated the Teen Spirit's logo. I think i m becoming a pro.

Thirdly i ve added a "Random Tip" thing in the site.

I'm showing my support for the site by turning off AdBlock. :) I really don't mind ads as long as you don't use that kind that takes up the whole screen so I need to click 'skip this ad' in order to actually view the page. (The reason behind the fact that I'm using AdBlock).

:). I was also using AdBlockPlus (Firefox) which completely wipes out 99% of ads. One month ago, i disabled it completely* and saw a new world**. In many sites ads are not disturbuting (in some cases also informative). On the other hand there are a lot of bad exceptions.
Especially, popups and "over" frames make me angry.
I ll never use them.

* just to see what others are doing.
** sites were completely different.

Ads purpose is to cover some costs. Main site already gives that money and i respect the people who tries to help by using this forum by not using ads here.

I don't have any problem with still ads but I can't stand animated ads of any kind - it's no better than using ALL CAPS, worse even.

One more ad policy change.
I ve added a very small (smallest available) ad in the upper right corner of the forum pages.
The purpose for this is to test something in the Google Adsense program.
