    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.

    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
