No more advertising

http://www.v7n.com/advertise.php

We will not be accepting new advertisers on v7n. Frankly, we don't need the money, and adverts can be ugly.

What's the idea with Aaron's ad?

Me: "Did you make that in MSPaint?"
Aaron: "Umm It's supposed to look like that"

It's cool if you're going for a kids drawing type of thing, but at least make it look a bit more like the toysrus logo.

I think it's supposed to look "friendly" as opposed to "commercial".

There are lots of kids type fonts that would look way better though.

I don't mind Aaron's ad at all. It's just adverts in general.

LOL. It reminds me of an art teacher I had many years ago that always said IDEERS instead of IDEAS, because it looks like IDERS. Bonus: here's the only joke this guy always told, about once per class. "What do you call a deer in the middle of the woods that can't see?" - "No ideer".

Mine too - thought I'd put in the wrong URL for a split second

That's a good idea though - least you aren't going down the same path as another forum that every pixel is filled with advertising!

Obviously Aaron's ad is catching attention. Any attention is good attention.

Im glad you all get the point of my ad. It isnt to look cool, it is to get your attention and that is what it does.

Interesting concept, although I've never found the advertisements on the forum to be anything more than useful/interesting. The price requirement is enough to keep the spammers out, so I was always happy with the ones I saw.

Nevertheless, Adfree is the way to be. I guess there is no chance you could install an ad condom is there?

Why not just have the adverts to show to the visitors only?

If you have adverts, it can become a conflict of interest. Somebody may advertise on v7n, and people ask me what I think of the service being offered, it becomes hard to say that the thing being offered is crap.

No, it was another advertiser we had sign up a few months ago. I will not mention their name (ControlScan), but the service was utterly useless.
