UtaForum Changes for 2015-02-13
Minor CSS Readability Changes
Multi-Prefix Addon Updated
Threads in UtaSwap are required a minimum of 2 prefixes
J-Box Affiliate Ads are Displayed on Sidebar for Guests.
Added More Banners into the Rotation
What do you think of these new changes? Does anyone object to a bit of affiliate marketing to help maintain the site?
Do you think the J-Box ads and the new banners are or are-not relevant to this site?
I knew that there were new banners up top but then I went to a thread and saw them between posts. It kinda confused my reading flow.
I agree with this. Is there perhaps a more seamless way to involve ads in threads? I thought maybe text links, but nobody really pays attention to those.
Maybe instead of the ads looking like posts, they could just occupy space in between? I find myself getting confused mainly because they appear like posts, but they aren't.
