I dug up the penis (it's actually a type of clam) photo and a photo of the girl in the titty-showing tube top to use as my signature but now I suppose I can't do that.

Is it a geoduck?

 

That's what it looked like to me

Looks like you were 3 minutes too late for that quip, Moiraine. It's a thin line between a salient point and... dedhoarse

That should work. Please don't feel obligated, of course.

Ideally I'd like to see HB become self-sustainable with a low ad footprint, but I don't know how feasible that is. I'm attempting to push for a switch to a regular (monthly) donation drive, and I expect we'll also try and find less intrusive ad services. Can't promise how effective either of these things will be, but hopefully we'll at least have some options to explore.

Could we add a Paypal button for the donations?

In the future, it's probably not a workable idea to install ads for revenue, then tell your users to block the ads using software.  My understanding is that using adblock software prevents the impression of the ad at all. It's self-defeating.

 

 

I clicked on the donation thing up there to chip in some $$$ to defray costs, but it said the connection wasn't secure.  I'd rather send a check or PayPal.  Any other options available?

It's certainly self-defeating. But I'm personally not going to encourage anyone to view ads, even if this limits board revenue. Ads are a scourge. They should all be blocked. My humble opinion as a user :D

I'm asking Blackshirt about other options and trying to see if we can get something to replace what's up there now. Stay tuned. We might be doing some experimenting this summer.

Yup, same. Except a check. Because I'm not a retiree.

Same here.

In fact, how about a permanent paypal donation link? If you think it's tacky, make it a small button and add it to the bottom of the page (But not a popup). Lots of people put them on their youtube channels.

Agreed. Plus, I doubt it can be any more obtrusive than the ads we have been seeing.

What I'd like to see is a monthly progress meter. In the meantime, I dug up this link:

I think it still works?...I believe someone used this a couple months ago.

Hm, I haven't looked into that very much. It'd be neat, since sustaining web hosts does rely on patronage. However, they take a veryslightly larger cut than, for example, Donorbox. Anyway, this is all Blackshirt's call in the end. I also wonder if HB qualifies here -- HB isn't creating art. This is art:

(Relatedly: http://www.poorlydra...-lines-patreon/ :D)

But it might be good to just have multiple options and that way, people can use whatever they're comfortable with. A paypal button, Patreon especially if they already use that, etc. I'll pass along all the suggestions.

What's worse? National Enquiresqe ads about bald women and ugly feet or ads that hijack your phone so that you have to close your browser to get out of it? IMO, what is happening now is much worse than some poor taste ad boxes.

And yet, only 4 people have donated less than $100 toward off setting the cost of the site.

Maybe there needs to be some way that the donation opts you out of the advertising? I made a small donation awhile back and I'm still subjected to the same ads as others. Just an idea, don't know if it's practical.

Actually, I do know it is practical. Amazing Ribs site has something like that. If you pay to join their "club", there are no ads.

That would be great - I like to think that people step up and contribute because it's the right thing to do, but that isn't the case.  Very sad when you look at the thousands of profiles of people who come here.  Even $5 from most would be a nice little windfall to fund the site.

These shouldn't be happening, period, and we've been asking the ad guys to look into it. I haven't managed to encounter it personally, but I don't typically browse on mobile devices in the desktop skin and only tried looking for it briefly this morning. Also, I do think we've managed to nip it in the bud for now... but please let us know if they continue.

Is it also possible to get the top banner ad (I think it's a 728x90 ad) centered? Here's how it displays on my computer: it sort of jumbles the top portion of the site a bit.
