    See Jester I think Jazz summed it up perfectly . . . in order to turn off the ads you HAVE to pay. That is a bit of blackmail in my opinion as well and a tactic I don\'t quite like. See, I don\'t want to turn off the ads all together because there are some ads for games and minis that come up once in a while and I do actually check out those sites. If I turn everything off then I miss out on those. If I don\'t turn everything off though then I am subjected to ads that I would rather not be there.

    Now I\'m not saying I\'m a prude or anything, far from it in fact. But if I want porn that\'s what Google is for. Not my mini\'s site. Especially when people at work want to see what I painted recently . . . it\'s all just a bit touchy.

    If you\'re a paid member you have three options for ads - all on, all off, or external off. External are the non-game/non-mini ones. I keep internal ads on and see all the game and mini goodness.

    Though I certainly do understand the points people are making that the types of ads being displayed make it difficult to browse at work or send a link of your gallery to a friend, and it would be great if the objectionable content ads could be filtered out.

    Yup Wren, I personally don\'t have anything against it. I really, honestly truly don\'t have anything against these ads when I\'m at home or not having to worry about who sees them. It just makes it more difficult to share your work with people who just want to see it every now and again you know?

    But I see both sides of the argument.

    Oh lordy lordy lordy, here we go again. All we need now is some nutter to come in and claim we\'re deliberatly showing porn to kids and he is taking measures to have CMoN taken off the net and the cycle will be complete.

    If this is the most offensive thing you see on the net then you\'ve led a sheltered netlife. This is also the crappiest blackmail I\'ve ever seen if it ammounts to \"give us cash or we show boob\". Usually its \"wire us $10,000,000 to an offshore account or we post pictures of the president in the cheerleaders lockerroom on the internet\"

    Okay, my final opinion.

    If you don\'t like the way the FREE access is handled, don\'t come here.
    If you want it YOUR way, pay for it.
    If you think that\'s blackmail...again, sorry to see you go.
    But in all honesty, you get what you pay for. period.:D

    Ding ding ding!

    I personally don\'t have an issue with the ads. Hell, they could be full blown porn and I probably wouldn\'t notice it. Advertisers hate me. However, I do not log in from my work computer (for the most part). So being able to turn off the ads would have no effect. And this is where a little public consideration is needed.

    I can\'t go directly to the main page either when I\'m browsing during a break because of the possibility that someone\'s featured mini will be a nude. But, I use my gallery to be the bookmarked page since I have control over what is shown. Except for what ad is at the top.

    Honestly, I\'m not sure if the ads in question would get me fired or not. I\'m thinking that they\'d probably get me a warning to not visit the site anymore, or maybe it would get flagged as a banned domain. Neither of which I\'d be happy with.

    Wait... did I have a point to all this? I can\'t remember. Oh well. Just chalk it up as me chiming in.

    Joking -> The pr0n ads are mini related, they\'re skin tone references. : )

    Serious -> i don\'t believe it\'s blackmail-esque. The money has to come from somewhere. Either it\'s the advertisers or it\'s us. Both sources have their pros and cons for us. The only reason I haven\'t subscribed is that you can only pay by Paypal and I am a sad monkey with no Paypal. (Suggestion - take subscription fees by credit card, since the CMoN Shop already has the CC system.)

    :beer:

    The blackmail argument is just weak.

    Chern Ann added the advertisements to cover costs. AFTER they were up some of those who subscribed asked if they could get the option to turn them off since they were already contributing to the site.

    Chern Ann agreed that that was fair enough and so gave us the option.

    Personally it just sounds like a cop out for those to cheap to support a community they claim to get a lot of benefit from.

    My day job is now miniature related, and I don\'t feel comfortable logging into this site at work because of these ads. And while I am a paying member, the ads do seem to get through every once in a while.

    I don\'t feel comfortable promoting this site now because of these ads; it didn\'t bother me much before, but now if I pose links on other boards to miniatures I\'ve painted I can potentially drive younger viewers to this site, and they\'re not paying members.

    God if you are that worried about get a photobucket account or put a gallery up at wyrd-games.net or some other mini site.

    Honestly these constant threads are more spam like that those lesbian sex ones.

    Oh, I have a photobucket account. And I\'ve been using it more and more for miniature display -- which is not good, considering that the purpose of this site is for displaying miniatures and I\'ve been using something else.

    I thought the purpose of the site was ego inflation? Why else would we have a 0-10 scale to lust over...

    Anyway I\'ve had a few issues with checking CMON from a campus computer... when one of the half naked lady banners comes up I get nervous, even though I\'m one of about 20 people out of 35,000 who is allowed to look at porn on a school computer.

    Psych 423, Children and the Web. We are actually supposed to spend an entire class looking at porn and hate sites right away. Should be delightfully awkward to be doing that stuff around middle aged professors and a bunch of total strangers.

    I\'m not happy about the banners being put up, and I\'m not convinced that this is the only way to pay the bills. I know the site has ballooned to a crazy size with all the minis posted (I remember when I had all 15,000 out of 15,000 minis voted for, and THAT seemed like a lot of minis) ... but seriously there has to be another way to get less offensive ads on here.

    I still like the \"Summon Supervike\" use of boobies in forum titles, they always get a laugh out of me, but I\'m sick of feeling like a perv when I come here on another computer.

    The outside ads are really annoying, and I can understand having to log on when accessing from a different computer.

    Does anyone have the FACTS?
    Supervike? Chern ann?
    Maybe if more people paid, we could drop the outside ads? Honestly, It doesn\'t affect me. I truned them off, and I always check from my laptop, so I\'m almost always automatically logged in.

    Bollocks! The vote suggests you\'re in the minority. It\'s got nowt to do with puritanism. Why does everything have to be marketed by the use of fanny these days? It appeals to the lowest common denominator and is just lazy if you ask me.

    This site deserves better than that.

    I agree with Mr Munkie. It\'s out of place and inappropriate for this site, we surely want to encourage new blood into painting, gaming etc, not put them off or even prevent them from looking because there are ads for this crap.

    I know what you mean...the \'boobie\' joke is just an ongoing tongue in cheek thing...I can do without them here completely.

    Had a I the authority or ability, I\'d zap the adverts in a heartbeat. They just don\'t belong here, as I\'ve said before Porn on the internet is easy to find without having to have it bombarded on our little haven.

    BUT...I am just a moderator. I don\'t have those types of \'powers\' and I get the same amount of contact with the Admins you all get (which is right around none).

    I zap it as fast as I see it when it spams the forums, but there isn\'t anything I can do to stop it in the ad rotations.

    I apologize for it.

    No no, that\'s wrong. You\'re clearly just a chemically-gelded homosexual hobo without a pot to piss in if you object to these ads.

    Haven\'t seen any racy ads since early last morning (I check back CMON quite often, keep in mind).
