Is there a way to change these banner adds so that they open in new windows/tabs?  I tried right clicking on the banner and it won't let me open it in a new tab.  So whenever I click on them I have to click through and then click back to come back to this site.

I wish, but that is specifically against the EULA as well.  Pretty dumb, in my opinion, that they wouldn't allow that.

It probably assures that people don't just click them and then close the window.

Oh well.  I shall continue to click anyway so that I can view the delightful adds and for no other reason at all.

It's simple, easy (for the most part), and won't harbor animosity among the members for those that can't or won't donate. Those that donate feel like they get something special, and those that don't won't feel shafted.

I only pay for things which will cause others to harbor animosity against me, though.

If this service ever does exist and I pay for it, will you harbor animosity against me, Porpman?  Please?

Too late! I already do that for you for free!  :-* ;)

matt, are you allowed to tell us how successful the banners are or is that prevented by the EULA as well?

I'd have to check, lol.  So far, if they stay on course with the average over 2 days, we'll be getting a monthly check and be able to have a much nicer server.  I'll update you guys as the month ends to let you know how it has done.

Is there a way for you to add more keywords to that google add banner?  I keep seeing the same links on there for lego star wars, a comic, the miniature game, and something else.  I'm happy to keep looking at the lego site to see all the neat lego things, but if the only ever advertise the same sites it gets a bit boring.  I'd like to see more star wars things, or even more CCG or TCG or gaming things.

You're lucky. I don't get SW things. I get stuff for Katrina relief, SQL servers, and international shipping.

They will change over time, but yeah some of them are pretty off base.  There should be less and less of these public service ads showing up shortly.

It won't always be the same ads, but there is no way for me to really add new keywords.  It parses the text of the page it shows up on for the most part.

Have you tried seeing if WizKids will do anything financially for the site?

Wizkids might be willing to advertise on the site...but if you think about it...the site itself is an advertisement for them.  I think their willingness to provide contest material and to answer interview questions would probably be their form of assistance.
