    ~ Simply vote I AGREE or I DISAGREE ~

    I AGREE = I DO NOT mind having pop-under advertising implemented into TweakTown

    I DISAGREE = I DO mind having pop-under advertising implemented into TweakTown


    This is your website as much as ours!

    So do us a favour and help us make a decision - we will go with whatever the votes shows after two days.

    Or Pop-under ads (same thing as far as I'm concerned) are not effective. Ads that are smaller and built-in to the website with the least amount of graphics and gifs are more effective and are way more likely to be clicked on. Eventually marketers will realize this....unfortunately, when they do, websites will start to almost confuse people with ads and content being very similar looking. But at least there will be fewer ads.
    And eventually they'll all goto text only...once they see how incredibly effective they are.

    It's ok, as long as the ads do not open a second window when attempting to close them. Those multiple pop unders are a real pisser.

    Also, none of the semi-invisible windows, the ones that you have to close all other windows in order to get to and some you just need to quite and restart.

    Also, make sure they’re not too heavy. I've in broadband now, but it still pisses me off when I have to deal with a large add that even slightly slows things down. And nothing pisses a 56K user more then bandwidth hogging ads.

    Also, (Not again!) make sure that the text in window before graphics are loaded is descriptive. There have been a hand full of times when I closed an ad just as the graphic appeared and as it closed realized I was interested.

    In the end I agree with the above post. Small adds and adds in general that actually give some explanation as to where they lead have a higher chance in catching interested parties.

    Sir talk a lot

    Happy now? :) Actually, the pop-ups around here don't seem to surface for me. As long as it's only 1, I don't see why it is a problem.

    The votes are a lot closer than I would have expected them to be - but we still need more people to vote!
