Mistborn amazon links
« on: July 19, 2006, 05:12:04 PM »
Fell mentioned to me that he'd like some links to Brandon's book on the site so I've added it on the forum, index and article pages,  let me know if they're placement is annoying.  I don't think this will be a permanent thing, but will probably pop-up now and again to promote TWG member's products.
Screw it, I'm buying crayons and paper. I can imagineer my own adventures! Wheeee!

you'll note that I can't see ANY content there nor can I enter data on the post pages. This is not good. Ads should not do this.

the "post reply" page.

frankly, the ad shouldn't be there at all if we can't do better than this.

I don't like having a popup that stays in place either. Put it in as a small ad somewhere discreet, not a floating flash thing.
If you're ever in an argument and Entropy winds up looking staid and temperate in comparison, it might be time to cut your losses and start a new thread about something else :)

Maybe you can just cover up Brandon's entire section of the forum with the ad? You know, so we won't be able to get into it.

Wow, you know you people don't have to be jerks about it.  That's the only place for a vertical add on the forum without recoding the whole table structure.

Who's being a jerk? You asked people to post their opinion. We did.

It's the best way to get anthing done. Plus Wit and Sarcasm don't exude their self very well over the intertron.

except you were lacking any amount of wit there and just came off as snide and un-helpful unlike Ent and SE's comments.

And just to be one step more Frank, I don't really like the google ads either. But they're not so obtrusive and flashy. Maybe just put the mistborn ad on the front page, eh?

Is that less... purple meanie?

we get most of our traffic here, over 60%, so ads on the forum is here to stay.  I'll work something out, not sure what though.
