i know sirius has said he wants to keep this forum banner-free, but i'd still visit just as much if there was a random 468x60 banner just above the search box in what is currently empty space.

rather than be offended by advertising, i do see it as a way to find out about bitcoin-related sites that i would have otherwise missed.

and surely the money would be good for the forum's hosting, etc.

thoughts? other banner options? (actually a 728x90 at the bottom of each page would be fine with me too).

What would we spend the money on? Our hosting is being freely provided by Mark of MtGox, and the donations are enough to pay for new forum modifications.

Most of us only see the ads we want to see (adblock) so I doubt it would hurt at all.

I know I personally would just move to offer other other bitcoin related forums, they being said if the market place had a section for actual vendors where only operating bitcoin businesses could post...

I don't think it would change my frequency, but i would be a tad concerned with security, it isn't rare to see reports of malware being distributed via ad networks...

(I dont always get new reply notifications, pls send a pm when you think it has happened)

Wanna gimme some BTC for any or no reason? 1FmvtS66LFh6ycrXDwKRQTexGJw4UWiqDX Smiley

The more you believe in Bitcoin, and the more you show you do to other people, the faster the real value will soar!

it wouldn't change my visiting frequency.  However, I run ad blocking software so I'd never see it anyway
