It was unsightly, can't say I miss it at all. Also, I hate the idea of that app or whatever you want to call it. More laziness is exactly what the people need eh? Can't be bothered to read more than a paragraph, we have an app for that! ATS is free to promote whatever they want, doesn't mean every member has to hoorah and fall in line with it. Besides, I am sure management would rather people spoke up and complain, rather than just not coming here anymore.

I must be in the minority, I didn't mind it. The owners have to make money to keep the site up.

The website has to be monitized and paid for and that was a way of doing it


Actually, the TLDR ad doesn't help to monetize the ATS site... only the ads from the ad network provide a revenue stream.

S.O. was merely being kind enough to share new developments at Stremor with the ATS membership, and maybe get some interest in the plug-in spread a little through those interested.

On a quasi-related note.. here is first place in the annual .000001k sprint at Slothfest 2012.

After years of heated debate and numerous incidents of mistaken identification, monkeys are now welcome at Slothfest.

Lets face it, every time something new or different comes to ATS, people bitch about it.

The site could give away free money in large denominations and folks would complain.

Free money?

Pfft, it would probably be those worthless Federal Reserve Notes.

Instead of doing away with it, they could redesign it. Hold a contest for a walpaper design or something like they do the avatars. Then people can vote for the design and the winner would be used. You know most folks would like it because they voted for it and that would take care of the complaints.

Or it could be a smaller banner at the top of the home screen instead of taking up the whole outline of the page.

I was freaked out by it, I had no idea what it was (I have ad block all I saw the background color) I thought it was a subtle sign from ATS warning all the members.(the letter agencies monitoring) '
'

My computer did not show it as orange but more of a red.


'
' I'm glad to find out I was wrong

I like the color of my wife's silk tennis skirt, thats why I bought it for her

Any more confessions?

EDIT to add: You bring up an interesting point. It's possible that some of the people complaining were also using Ad blockers and didn't know it was an Ad. (I didn't read any of the complaint threads)

It never bothered me. Of course, as a human being, I have the innate ability to block out disagreeable stimuli.

Oh -- and I like orange (and TLDR).

Glad it's gone!
Trying viewing it on a 24 in screen!
And if you zoomed it,well the words were big as my pinky.

Ironically, the most effective ads are the ones you don't consciously notice.

The bright orange didn't agree with my eyes, but I didn't complain. ANYTHING is better than that stupid ad that pushed the whole page to the left- which thankfully was removed! I'll take anything else the site owners wish to throw at me as long as I don't have to suffer THAT ad again!

Does this have anything to do with why we are Denying Ignorance by letting a sloth pose as a monkey?


I wish I could star you for that!!!!

Well yea, then ATS would be known as a propagandist site for leftist communism... Or something to that effect. Whatever the kids are saying these days.

I can't say I miss it. The calming combination of black, gray and blue is part of why I like to come here. A big splash of orange screams, "The circus is in town!...and plans to squat for months."
I didn't fancy the thought of choosing between it and doing an impression of grandma with her magnifying glass monocle-on-a-stick from page-zooming the background out of view.

LOL - thats gold.

I had no idea a colour could galvanise so many.

But my avatar is awesome innit?



Humph, My avatar would rip the throat out of your Avatar. Yours would not even see the spirit wolf, the first inkling of wrongness would be his orange blood cascading from his throat while he yells, "WTF" All he hears as he lies gasping for breath would be a subliminal growl. GRRRRRRRRRRR



Hey it's cool man!

My Avatar would beat everyones avatar. I just put up with the big orange because, as another poster said, I don't pay to come here, the least I can do is look at the ads, after all, they are the ones paying. We just provide the audience.

What about the stupid "Skyline" ad? That one was the worst in my opinion.

The Skyline ad was pretty bad, but that Mio Energy ad was the only one that bothered me so much that I actually officially complained about it!
