Corrupting Influences

Post by Tachyon » Tue Dec 08, 2009 3:16 pm

A company offered me $140 to insert their ad into the text of the Characters info page of the FSS pages on Gears Online. They wanted to add a sentence or two to support their ad right in the text of the page. I turned them down. I'm not above advertising but I do have some standards.
If you don't like the news then go make some of your own.

About a year ago an online pharmaceutical company offered something similar for a (very) small hyper-niche Napoleonic wargames page I have. Pharmaceuticals --> Napoleonic wargames? Huh!? Had it been something even remotely affiliated with the topic at hand I might have gone for it. It would be nice sometimes to get a wee bit of $ for ones efforts but then again it is a hobby and as soon as even a dollar exchanges hands it becomes a different game doesn't it.

Instead of that dollar please accept my heartfelt Thank Yous for hosting this wonderful site. :D

Oh, I HATE that. Ads in the middle of text is beyond rude. Glad you didn't go for it Tachyon!
