Default Beginning to test Amazon ads this weekend.

I'm going to push out some Amazon ads this weekend. It will be a skyscraper format on the right side of the pages. If you're on the page for Predator, there will be ads for the Predator DVD, Blu-Ray, Toys, etc. on the right side of the page.

The format isn't final - and the matching engine isn't perfect... which should lead to some amusing ads. We'll see how it goes over the next week.

Best,
bunni

Uh, how old are you again? Do you not understand that a website of this magnitude costs serious money to maintain and selling Ad space is the only way to keep going, OTHER than charging members $$ to be here. For one, I am glad it's not costing me to be a MOD

Advertising is a necessary evil.

I hate consumer culture.

I have bills to pay. The site runs ~$1,000 per month in expenses and that number is always growing. Advertising has never covered the costs - I have always run this site at a personal expense to myself.
