I have the Firefox ad-block code in my userContent.css file, which is blocking Neowin ads. Does anyone know what line(s) I should remove so the ads could come back up?

Remove anything from the Google Syndication and remove a line that says http://ads. or http://ads.neowin.net

So before you guys comment "I got a subscriber package so I can do the hell I want" just remember, it does support Neowin but it just gives you an email and some extra forum perks.. Thats why its so cheap ($12.41 per YEAR) and to those who block ads on the internet, I understand that these days its becoming a necassary thing with sites taking advantage of the way ad's are displayed, but if you enjoy this site and block the ads you are contributing to a future problem we'll have with expansion.

Thats all.

No, I do not.

If possible, can you send me your version of userContent.css? I don't want to get rid of it completely because it does a good job on sites that abuse their power.

Neowin has ads? I hardly notice them up there. There so unobtrusive.

I think the stardock ad in the middle of the strange news is going a little to far, though.

That was pretty obtrusive.

Meh...That was unintentional and my fault. I accidently clicked something while writing up the article. It's been removed.

Installed adblock plus and noscript. See some ads but not everytime. Also, when it is stated that letting the ads show gets neowin money, but blocking doesn't, what about hiding the ads? Does this still count as viewing or not? (I know you are not viewing the ad, but you aren't blocking either)

IMO, Neowin Staff are becoming more and more anal retentive about stupid crap.

Its getting outta control.

As I was reading this post my machine hung for something like 5 seconds and then another IE window opens with a couple of ads. And I am on a 10mbps connection.

there are not any popup windows on neowin, maybe you should scan your computer for spyware. :whistle: :rolleyes:

I am fine with the AD's. I don't see why so many people have a problem with it?

Wow what a topic. All we ask (like we did many times before) is that you don't create 'HOW TO BLOCK THOSE ANNOYING NEOWIN ADS' posts

Thanks for helping

I didn't notice the ads at all until last month or so. They fit with the theme and aren't annoying.

I don't mind the ads on Neowin at all, they're not even intrusive.

With that said, that animated vonage ad on the frontpage sure does slow down my page scrolling in Safari :/

I dont see what the big deal is. I dont click on the ads anyway, so why does it matter if I block them or not?

neowin also gets money if the ads get loaded i.e. downloaded. clicking means extra $.

I totally agree with Neobond's decision but I sort of laughed when i saw this.

I know Neobond doesn't have a choice over Google's ads but i smiled none the less.

not true. as a webmaster, you can tell adsense to not put ads from certain domains or on certain subjects. i have done it. :happy:

Hehe, it seems Neobond has somehow made the "Add Reply" button get blocked by adblock. Anybody else noticed this?
