ADVERTISEMENTS ??


Blog Posted:3/5/2014 12:11:00 PM

i don’t know if you ever noticed  that on some of our pages ( contest section, 'my poems’ area , blogs,others) , advertisements on the right column block us from seeing the whole format of said layouts... receiving soupies from members who could not read the printed material of my contest  prompted me to revise its design; sadly this attempt did not work... am i the only one? NOT!... 

my head goes whoozy trying to decipher soupers’ pages as well.. then, VOILA!... i saw a note that asked if i wanted the  ads out of the way.. i clicked this only to realize that a blank , vertical column still existed! WHY?

are you aware of this?... perhaps TPS can share what this is all about...

talking of contests, i was delighted to see many new entrants rating well in my umbrella challenge... though i expected quality poems, so much talent poured into my file that i had a real hard time judging  it... david wood’s  ‘ umbrella man’--- lovely and deep though it went over the line requirements...

thank you everyone for giving me a happy migraine!.. advanced cheers to all participants for a job well done!

winners' list will be posted soon as i'm finalizing the line-up...

now, are you seeing an advertisement here?.. hope not!!.. 

huggs !

    Winning in a contest sponsored by Juli-Michelle gave me more confidence to look into other members' invites. The one of Craig Cornish cannot be read thoroughly. Since, I am a newbie, ad placements puzzle me.

    True, I went over to Skat's blog and a portion of her page was filled with Facebook info materials. It's a daily thing, I realize now. Is this a new feature? I have been away for a while.

    Are these paid ads?I get a lot of 'em everyday; and so it goes on and on. Makes me wonder if this is regular thing on the site? Anyway, I'll go look-see the winners' page. See you soon, Nette!

    will try to ask TPS when time allows, leon... maybe they are paid ads, not sure.. huggs

    I get promo offers while logging in. Must be on all sections ,Nette.Personally, it can be a bit distracting.And right, there are ads on this blog about CD Roms. Care for some merchandise?

    I would have no problem with the ads if it did not block the text--perhaps tps could fix that

    I don't blame them Nette, that's how stuff gets paid for--just wish they'd correct the margin infringements

    i hope so, craig.. seems these ads are sponsored by companies??
  1. Date: 3/5/2014 2:11:00 PM
    How about this?Whenever I write about a subject like flowers, there are ads above my page about floral deiivery. If my topic is a house, there go the real estate offers. Can't figure this one out, Nette.
