OH dear god Tuncer!  Today was the first time I guess these ads kicked in for me.

*sigh*  They look ugly.  If there another color besides green?  But if, I know how things go.

Please please please don't have these invade the forums, I"ve seen forums with these ads, it made me want to stab my eyes out with my Logitech mouse!

Thats in a place not many people would see it.

For those who can't find it, you see that bar at the top with
"Inside Mac Games   •   MacGameStore.com   •   MacGameFiles.com   •   IMG Pro"?
Theres one of those bars at the bottom (The VERY bottom) with "Home" and Turn off Intellitxt adds" Click the turn off button. :happy:

Agree with SPK here. As a web designer, and from a usability and end-user standpoint, I'd personally put it right above the first "News" banner on the top of the news page, justified right. Don't force someone to scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page underneath another banner ad to find it. Some users will have given up by then.

Thanks SPK. I couldn't find the damned thing at all until your post. Like hiding the off button under the counter.

OK, looking at the article on Aspyr's 10yr anniversary, I decided to view the ads.

1. 'PowerPC' -> some two-bit real-time OS and C++ dev tools
2. 'Intel' -> Dell desktop
3. 'Code' -> information about electrical codes

The only reason they pay more per click is that they have no clue what they are doing.
