[HELP OCN] Support Our Sponsors!

post #1 of 38
Thread Starter 

Hey Guys!

Ads are a necessity for websites like this. We use a lot of the funds to give back to you! Contests, events, development, staffing etc. are all funded by advertising and our amazing sponsors. Please do your part when possible!

 

  • If you use an ad blocker, please add Overclock.net to your exclusion lists.
  • Please welcome sponsors with open arms. No company is perfect. But most do try to make amazing products they hope you will enjoy.

 

On our end, we attempt to keep ads as relevant as possible. We also take a pretty hard stance on annoying ads. We attempt to never knowingly accept ads that burden you. When some slip trough the cracks, we do everything we can to shut them down as soon as possible.

 

Please do your part and support us in whatever way you see fit.

 

We appreciate your continued support!

 

Thanks very much!

Might I add, if you don't like ads please consider upgrading to an Overclocked Overclock.net Account. Doing this brings you several benefits such as an option to turn off ads, custom member titles and an Overclocked.net email address, as well as supporting OCN.

 

You guys are what keeps the forum running! Thanks.

I was all for not using adblocker until we started getting full page ads.

The wallpaper ads? We don't actually run "full page" ads aka "interstitials" - those are annoying as heck.

 

I thought most people were okay with the wallpaper ads!

 

  • They are always from relevant brands that directly relate to our industry
  • They provide a new "feel" to the site when they run.
  • They are usually only on the homepage
  • Almost every other tech site in our sector runs them - it would be very hard for us not to accept them :(

 

Is there anything specific that you don't like about them?

Its the wallpaper ads yeah.

I'm on this website a ton at work, and its hard to conceal a big intel ad across my screen.


Edit: I also have ADHD and it makes it harder for me to focus on what i'm trying to read.

Fair enough! Would it help if we limited those ads to logged out users only? I can't promise that will happen 100% of the time - but I do have a little influence with that. Also, if you don't like them and still want to support the site, please do consider purchasing an Overclocked Account which allows you to disable ads on the site :)

I can 100% say if they were limited to people not logged in i would turn ads back on for this website.


I'd also like it to be noted i don't expect it to be changed for just me. I'm not sure how others feel.




(I also avoid Hard forums anandtech forums etc because of said ads )

If that's the common sentiment here - I can definitely look into that! It just "sucks" for the great brands who advertise on the site to not be able to reach amazing folks like you with their message. 

 

Let me talk with the ad sales guys to see if we can find an alternative for people in your predicament. Thanks for the feedback good sir :)
