Please take the following words for what they are worth for I am not a portion of the "great silent majority".

Aside from the desire to have the ability to disable the Paintball News and Community Focus panels, I am highly receptive of the new layout. Great job bringing order to the GUI, especially by handling horizontal scroll issues.

However, I miss the times when our ad base catered to the focuses of PbNation. I enjoyed browsing the ads as quick and effective means of learning of new products, sales, or events as if it was a Sunday ads section. This is no longer the case.

With the recent transition, it saddens me to see that I am now forced to tolerate the run of the mill ads I am bombarded with and attempt to escape elsewhere. I can tolerate and overlook the ponzi scheme ads, referral scheme ads, "Consumer Alerts" ads, and other questionable ads that are commonly found on questionable websites. As offensive as I find them, I can even tolerate the "666" ads forcing the Bible upon myself to a slight extent. This aside, I cringe each time "Congratulations, you have won!" is publicly announced through my machine.

I understand the necessity of advertisements, especially in the generation of funds to manage such an incredible forum. However, please take into consideration the material advertised. I now mute my machine as I browse in fear of what will pop up next on PbNation. I'd hate to see these ads grow even more questionable and offensive or, worse yet, turn into content that is not safe for work. It'd be a shame to see the ad base reach a level at which it hinders traffic.

It's a shame that you take the time to write all of that and it's just going to get deleted.

Color me surprised, eh? I mean, if my brief, friendly exchange with kyle a couple pages back in which I agreed with some of his points got deleted, I have no chance of having my posts stay put as this thread continues.

They have been deleting posts about removing the ads, not just talking about them. I doubt his post will get deleted. (I doubt they will listen to it, either...)

We've never allowed talking ads, popups, popunders, ads for male enhancement junk, religious ads, etc. The quicker we're able to identify what ad network they're coming from (with your help) the quicker we can turn them off. The ad networks don't always adhere to our wishes and sometimes sneak those annoying ads in there, and it takes us a while to track them down and get them shut off.

Thanks for shedding light on the issue. Please let me know what information I can help provide you with to bring it to a stop.

I've been coming here less and less since ST sucks and there's only really two discussion threads I frequent.
What drives me away more than anything though is the seeming lack of interest and dismissal concerning the complaints every time they change something on the site.

The Staff keeps it professional in announcing it, but when the *****ing starts pouring in they always give off the "It's not that bad, and we're making more money this way, so get used to it" vibe when responding.
