With the rollout of the new design, I’ve dropped the use of Text-Link-Ads on this site. I struggled to find a place for them in the new design and between the dropping income that they’ve been bringing in and a little pressure from the great oogelly moogelly I decided to just remove them altogether.
While I was at it, I removed TNX.net links from the site as well. Both services have a place and a use, but neither was fitting where I wanted this site to go and I really didn’t want to fill up the front page with more ad stuff. I’m still considering whether I will put scratchback back in the design or not. I’ve got room for it on the single pages, but it might stay off of the front page. Again, the design is such that adding it would really mush stuff together and give more of an appearance of being over ad laden.
So, with that said, there are plenty of open ad spots at the moment. I’ve changed the advertise page to reflect the new spots and the new prices. If you are interested in advertising on Thatedeguy, please drop me an email. I’m thinking of celebrating the new theme with a contest and possibly a discount on the ad spots. What do you think?
