I stopped seeing the ads? What happened?

Well now all three new ad units are up, so I'm curious if the lowest of the three is just too wide. There are skyscraper ads that are only 160 wide instead of 300, but I thought it would be good to have the ads be the same width, but now I'm worried it's too much, so I;m eager for feedback from anyone willing to provide it.

Well I run at 1920x1200 on a 24" monitor so the extra width doesn't bother me at all. Here's a screenshot of the layout for me (reduced in size to 960 width)

If it stays like this, I won't mind it one bit.

I noticed the first ad since UGO was left behind. It's not intrusive at all.

The best budget game since Serious Sam.

5. Ads Nov 1, 2009, 14:17 Efflixi
 
Pop ups were the only reason I have Blues ads blocked as well. A few months after you went to UGO I got one that I couldn't close and took over your entire site. I had to sit there for 15 seconds before it went away. That was completely unacceptable and since then I've had *ugo* blocked. Since you've removed yourself from that network I'll gladly see normal ads on your site. I know sites like yours exist only on ad revenue, but I will NOT support take over ads. In-line ads are fine with me as long as there aren't 500 of them. I also hate websites that break up their "content" across 20 pages to get more ad views when the content was short enough to have been on 1 or 2 pages. Blues doesn't have that problem though.

I've been coming here for over 10 years and bluesnews.com has been my homepage since I was on Windows 98. If you put t-shirts or some other way to generate revenue for yourself, I'll gladly support you man.

People complaining that games won't run on an 8 year old OS irritate me. Don't you think it's time to upgrade?

Agreed, Hot Pursuit was the best of the series.

3. Long shot request Oct 18, 2009, 14:28 Efflixi
 
I've been looking at Mass Effect for the PC over the past few days and I want it. The only problem is that I've been unemployed for 8 months and can't afford to buy it. Is there any chance of one of you gifting it to me on Steam? It's only $20. If you want to, let me know and I'll get in contact with you.

I think they should not show/count every single expansion for this as separate content on Steam. I was browsing the simulation section last week and it seems like half of the titles are this game and it's expansions. That's uncalled for!

If I was, they've never logged on any of my prebuilt characters. My guildies say that none of my guild chars have ever been online since I left the game.

I can't log in to my account. It says it had been merged already, which I never did because I've not played WoW since early this year. I created a new b.net account and tried to merge my WoW account with it but it still said it was already merged. Currently waiting on Blizzard to respond to my email from 3 days ago.

Without going out too crazy here, but the screenshots look crazily similar to that of wow. I realise there is a limited scope to what you can do with a MMORPG but at least you could try with the interface....

Damn, you're right. The interface is almost a 100% clean rip of WoW's. I guess you use what works right? lol...

The art from stamps is awe inspiring. I'm a very patient person, but there's no way in hell I could do something like that!

*edit*
I got 9/12 on the real newspaper or onion headline quiz.

I couldn't pass up Supreme Commander and Forged Alliance for only $5. I bought the original SupCom when it first came out, but I've always held off on FA because I felt it was too expensive. This makes that no longer true. My only gripes are that it still has DRM, and having to give my money to IGN.

If WoW is rated M, does that make Australians' heads explode fantastically at the sight of Age of Conan?

No kidding... an M rating for WoW? Really?
