I'm checking it less and less.

I still use it, but now when I think of a new topic I'm more likely to post it here.

@Lee J Haywood: I have it open in tab. This style is just soo much easier for me to navigate.

I have stopped using it since last weekend. I can't use the two sites, more so if one of them is spam infested.

Which style is that?

@Lee J Haywood: I'm lazy so the reply buttons and the watch list and site activity makes it easier for me to navigate.

Oh, that's good then. Hopefully one day I'll feel up to doing a blueBoxxer-like collapsible list of updated topics - once I've figured out a way to do it efficiently!

@Lee J Haywood: well the fact that the admin, you, are active makes it much more interesting to work in.

Yes, I just need to find a way for you all to send me money. (-;

@Lee J Haywood: Advertisement? I have started using google chrome so I no longer have ad block.

@Lee J Haywood: Post your credit card number so we can transfer funds immediately.

@Baslisks: Although I'd like to try Google Ads, the Google crawler cannot handle dynamic sites like this one directly and I don't know where I'd actually put the ads - maybe above the comment entry box... but even the ads rely on being able to crawl the pages, which won't work at present.

@Lee J Haywood: the right side of the screen push everything so much to the left? If you sent a mail to google you might get some talking.

@Baslisks: No, make the ads dance and flash over the screen! Those return serious buck$$$!

@BorgClown: Ads could appear as a topic in teh site activity page every X comments, or when things are slow.

It's annoying that I cannot try out Google Ads to see what is possible without first signing up.

@Korinthian: I'll die when I see new topics with "Nice site, good work..."

@Korinthian: If used intelligently then they aren't a problem. They rarely are.

@Baslisks: Then why did you use Adblock?
On 2008-09-11 at 04:08:08, Beeba wrote...
you can pry my adblock from my cold, dead hands.
On 2008-09-11 at 04:44:32, Baslisks wrote...
I don't frequent sites with ads anymore.
On 2008-09-11 at 04:50:42, BorgClown wrote...
@Baslisks: Then why did you suggest ads here? Was it because knowing the owner made you more empathetic?
On 2008-09-11 at 04:51:23, Baslisks wrote...
I disable ad blocker on sites I like.
On 2008-09-11 at 04:56:37, BorgClown wrote...
Ah, good strategy. I'm too selfish to disable AdBlock at all, but my conscience tells me that it's a form of paying back a good service.

@BorgClown: exactly

Okay, I've worked out a plan to do a collapsible watch list cleanly (like blueBoxxer) - just got to find the time to implement it now... http://discussionator.com/Plan.jpg

Is that an etch-a-sketch? Back to basics!
On 2008-09-11 at 19:45:43, Lee J Haywood wrote...
No, no - etch-a-sketch uses wheels to draw lines. This is a magnetic pen - totally different concept.

@Lee J Haywood: Oh yeah, totally different!
On 2008-09-11 at 20:14:47, BorgClown wrote...
Of course. It's a Megasketcher! Totally different!

@Lee J Haywood: If you always do there your plans, you've saved a couple of trees in your lifetime.

According to Wikipedia, the Megasketcher is the equivalent of a Magna Doodle (still not an etch-a-sketch).
