What's he talking bout??? The ads! Duh!
i'm half kidding. i don't see what is the big deal is, scotty boy. (lol) it's not worth making a post about it. Don't you want to find christian singles to have a comepletely pure, and non-physical relationship with!? lol. i crack myself up. lol. (i don't know if that ad is still here though) Oh, also, don't forget to see the eyeless mutant turtle! Lol. (i think its a red eared slider, but that ad may have gone too) Wait... What's Webinar?(another ad thing, this one on my screen right now) Whatever. Atleast that thing for seeing old classmates isn't here. Speaking of ads, i have a friend who calls tv commercials ads, but i think they r only ads if they r not on tv. He also calls thing like these commercials. go figure. he's still my bf. (best friend, not boyfriend. i'm straight) lol. its amazing on how i can talk and ramble on for so long when i'm given so little. Well, thats me. :mrgreen: :roll:

I'd love to be able to do all of this ad-free, but the finances simply don't allow it. In order to run all that HHC does; process the gigs of bandwidth we use up; the storage space; and, to be able to run all of this at the speeds we do all costs money - and a sizable chunk at that. We need to run banner ads. They don't pay for half of the costs incurred, but it does help. I do my best to block out the objectionable stuff - the scams, the soft and hard porn (is there really a difference?) and the questionable, but, alas, advertising is ubiquitous - both on and off the net.

Bryan..I think you do a great job here and I don't think most people appreciate what it costs you in time and money to keep the board going. Ads are just a small part of the board and as far as I'm concerned not a problem at all. I don't think its very nice of people to complain about them when they are getting unlimited use of the board at no cost to themselves.

I agree. I don't think ads make this any worse. i was just joking with what i said, if it seemed like i didn't like the ads being here. I understand that income is needed, and ads help.

Exactly right. Just think if Bryan started to charge us for the use of HedgeHog Central.

Haha, I'm sure nobody wants to pay. If funds did become an issue and we were charged, though, I would DEFINITELY do that, HHC is too great to dismiss because of price!

We could pay for it by clicking on the adds! I will start clicking on adds to help pay for this. I can't believe I hadn't thought of that before.

Just be sure if you do start clicking on adds you don't go crazy. Just a few clicks at a time or google will get suspicious. Think of what we could do if we all clicked on one add every day!

Well, that will never happen. I'd sooner shut the site down due to lack of funds than start charging for its use, but I don't see that happening anytime soon, either. :)
