    Ads

    Its a bit humorous that there is an ad for "Iowa Hawkeye Products" on this web site.

    Re: Ads

    alaskaguy- you just beat me to it!

    JEREMY- As I've stated on previous posts, I don't mind that you've resorted to small, unobtrusive Google ads, and I know that you're still "fine-tuning". But PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do whatever you have to do to ELIMINATE SQUAWK ADS!!!

    PS: alaskaguy- it is not humorous, it is unacceptable!

    Re: Ads

    These ads have nothing to do with Jeremy's input. They're content based, from what people have said most recently/often on these boards.

    Which goes to show that perhaps a few of us obsess about our neighbors to the East just a tad much.

    Re: Ads

    Yup, it's my understanding that these adds go by key words and what content is talked about on the board. At least, on the site I run, that's how it goes. If it makes you feel better, we have ISU stuff advertised over there every once in a while as well.

    You're correct. Anyone noticed the large number of criminal defense ads lately?

    Re: Ads

    The ads are content based but I can specifically reject ads from being on here. I'll try and find the Hawk specific ones and weed them out. Sorry about that :)


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    Sometimes it is the people who no one imagines anything of who do the things that no one can imagine.

    Re: Ads

    There are two links being advertised regularly on this site:
    Iowa Hawkeyes Merchandise
    and the second is to request information to attend EIU
