    I see that the ad banners have changed again. Has Sorcerers gone to an all-Google setup?

    Also, can we blame Ausir for the "Inzeráty Google" in the listing for Site Feedback?

    I love dumb internet ads.

    RPG Training & Books
    RPG with SQL, ILE, eRPG, RPG Skills Accelerator - and much more! www.lab400.com

    Might get me some Morrowind training mabbe?

    Bugger, seems it's been built for ex-BiS developers and not gamers in need of a hand.

    Yup, Amazon is out, google is in. Google is nice because they try to focus on the content of the webpage that you're currently looking at.

    Really? Then why does Site Feedback contain the following ads?

    Unless the third link is for Exitium's college fund (zing), I don't think any of these are relevant to the site. Ah, the joys of Google advertising...

    Nothing wrong with a little compassion.

    I've changed ads for RPG Codex because the response to previous ones was extremely poor... hopefully these will make Codex bring in at least a few bucks every month. They're pay-per-click, but don't go on any click-fests because Google will detect any cheating and just ignore the clicks. If you do see something of interest, however, don't be shy to click.

    The charity ads are placeholders for when Google has no suitable ads to show... unfortunately, this seems to be exceedingly often. :?

    I'll probably come up with my own replacement for those since they're up way too often.

    My brother has Crohns - bloody nasty disease. What's good for you Taluntain? A click a day - every two days - a click a visit?

    Clicking on the charity/health ads doesn't earn any money, unfortunately. If it did, I'd be more than happy to let them run.

    As for the rest, the more clicks the better (just nothing excessive)... I'm not allowed to encourage anyone, as per google rules, so I won't say anything more on the subject. This was just to explain how the new ads work.

    Hmm. If RPGCodex starts to get involve with charity, then charity ads would be related to the site. Then would you get money for those ads, no?

    All we have to do is start a section on saving Saint P. from his deadly disease.

    Sure you do. Didn't you know, all countries that aren't the United States of America are third world. Do you live in USA?

    I don't, and it's third world fun!

    No. Not to mention RPGCodex starting to get involved with charity is highly unlikely.

    I dunno, I was thinking of Ritalin for Real Time Only Gamers would be a nice charity.
