(i can see lots of ways this can be abused to suit the few at the expense of the many)
at what point does the forum become useless as the adverts force mainstream users away ?
its the general users that draw the traffic
i feel treated like a commodity and then im asked to be thankfull :(

Lee, you said "iv given with three hands and only taken with one"
you will have to forgive me for not quite agreeing with you there
Personally I haven't got a problem with Lee making money from the site, good luck to him.!. . But it is starting to get ridiculous the amount and piss's me off that they are taking over the recent activity section.!!
Eventually people get to the point they start clicking else where.!! . . . . It's just a matter of where folks point lies.?? . . . Must admit this last couple of weeks I've found my self back over on the Cnczone more than I have in previous months.!!

Get past that and the bullshit and it's a wealth of information and you can bet your last quid it's been done or asked.?
Problem had with the zone was it was divided into so many sub categories, that`s relatively not so much an issue now....
Lee has gone on about users not using the site properly, having had to deal with architects a lot , they have the same problem, people aren`t lab rats and dont behave as expected or take to conditioning particularly well, have to modify to suit how people actually react, not how would wish them to.
Appreciate hosting isn`t free and something has to pay the bills, but there are other ways of introducing ad`s and affiliate schemes that are not so intrusive.
As long as their presence is for income generating activity is clear to everyone.
At moment ,the ebay ad`s are very intrusive and shuffle recent activity off the ticker, personally don`t bother logging in unless there is a thread might want to post into, otherwise just read through from latest posts, no need to log in.
Now the latest post ticker is pretty much unuseable, have to remember myself threads that might be of interest and check for updates, through a mass of sub categories, perhaps a UK outpost on the zone would be more useable.
