You're jokin'......

Just signed in and on the log-in screen I noticed an advert for a new Car Forum at the top of the page.....surely people don't pay for advertising these days....my hat goes off to them! *sigh of relief*!!

Well, I'll give you a hint... car-forums.com isnt here so people can have fun chatting. :laughing:

Ads left and right. Well...top and right.

Now that we're on the subject, how do those ads get there exactly? Do people pay the admin for them? Is that also why free advertising is illegal? Lastly, how do specific ads go to specific threads? I've noticed that if I open a thread about Altimas, then there are ads concerning Altima's there for the most part. Just wondering...

PS: Is it just me or is this in two different sections?

You'll also notice that because you're in the US, we get ads about things in that country.....I receive ads about things in the UK alot of the time. I'm assuming it's down to our profile/IP address?

Niether do I when I'm signed in, just when I'm about to sign in, lol. I think members with higher posts don't see adverts, or atleast they don't see the ones at the side of the screen anyway!

I saw that....but my point was that the ads are relevent to the country that the user resides, too, not just the content they are looking at. Or maybe it's the same thing really, lol :thumbs:
