ticalc.org Introduces New In-Program Ads
Posted by Michael on 1 April 2007, 02:06 GMT

[Sample Program]As many of you know, in November we began running ads on ticalc.org in order to cover our bandwidth costs. While this trial run has proven highly effective, we are still falling short each month on ad revenue. Feedback has shown that our visitors are overwhelmingly against any form of graphic banner ads, so we are instead turning to something more creative.

Beginning in the next two weeks, all BASIC programs uploaded to our archives will automatically be edited to include pay advertising, similar to what is shown in the animated screenshot. This will allow advertisers to pay lump sum fees for perpetual product placement in the BASIC portion of our file archives and should solve our immediate financial situation.

We will attempt to balance the ad placements so that they are non-intrusive; however, as the editing is done by automated scripts, there may be a few instances of inappropriately placed advertising. Please vote on the survey to let us know what you think.

Well, this was a rather dirty trick to play on all us ticalc regulars... but I must admit it was pretty funny. |)

Who cares if there are adds on ticalc.org? I mean obviously someone does, but still, is it really that big of a deal to have a few banners on a web page?

By the way, I understand that the whole ad thing was a joke, but still, were people really complaining about having ads on ticalc.org?
