We appear to have suddenly got commercial adverts. According to previous board banners, this was never going to happen.

Can we expect such developments without announcement in future, or is this some technical mistake?

yes,

With 2 million hits a month im trying to get wowgamer to attempt to pay for its self. So just for a few weeks we will have some small adverts pop in from time to time.

Though I have (attempted to) remove all abusive and offending adverts from this site. So Sorry if you see some odd adverts hope it don't spoil things too much

Regards,

Update:

Some wowgamer (geek) stats:

2335135 hits last month, (312020 this month and rising)

1227944KBytes per Day
27987120 Total KBytes accessed

That's some bandwidth required !

It might be in good conscience, from my point of view at least, to remove the adverts saying you'd never do this, and in future it'd be nice to see this kind of thing going to a vote. If you wanted us to put a fund raiser together if funds weren't enough, I'm certain you'd make more and with a clearer conscience too.

Sorry, I just take particular umbridge to this. I appreciate it must be difficult given the data you have to cope with, but we're a community. We can handle it, as a community.

Markus, may I suggest using Adblock? :D

I forgot I use(d) it and actually had to check twice before remembering why I have no ads appearing all over my screen. I don't use it on this computer (didn't have the time to install it yet, as it's just been cleaned), but I don't find the few ads a bother actually. I only just noticed them because they were mentioned :)

And it's not that easy to just get money for this site, I must imagine. I would donate some money if I had the means to (no Mastercards or such), but there are many who just take this for granted.

And a side note to Jezzy, whenever you feel like WoWGamer needs anything, make sure you post it to the general forums, that way the community will get to chip in first! :D

A'ights, don't break/fix/remove anymore adverts. There's a hot scantily clad womon at the top of my page now. We would be happy if'n she stays there xD xD

I'm just concerned that this sort of thing happens without us being consulted. I appriciate there is a large amount of server traffic to the website - however, as stated, there are ways to get around this without comprimising what was previously stated would never happen.

It just feels incredibly dismissive and uncaring to me - the kind of motion I know you would all rally against if Bizzard did. In fact I distinctly recall debating with Saranini and I'm unsure if Jezzy was included as well when Blizzard threw these adverts up on the Realm Forums. As a Community, I'd expect a bit of back-and-forth. And while I could go get adblock and not say anything more on the subject, it's just principle.
