Yeah, we were worried about that too. The problem with the ads seeming completely unrelated to airsoft (i.e. why you were getting credit score ads) was because of an indexing problem with the Google crawler that I just sorted out. The ad figured out that you were in Canada, but it didn't know anything else, so it pulled a generic "Canada" ad, and right now that seems to be the credit score one.

Because we got this crawling thing figured out a litter better (we think) the ads will hopefully be more useful to user because they'll represent the actual content on the pages... i.e. threads about specific topics will get ads actually related to that topic. I know it's kind of crazy to think of ads as actually being useful, and truthfully nearly all ads are pretty useless to the end user, but by coordinating with Google in the way we are, we're trying to be the exception.

My Feedback on the new site design.

Two points.

1) The new quick link box on the left;

- disfigure the look of the site. (Threads' list got smaller)
- Puts the big ass ad the comes with it in the spotlights. (Not subtle ads)
- Quick links? What's the real purpose of it? It's pretty much useless.


2) Like mentionned before, the content of the ads;

- They have nothing to do with airsoft.
- Credit score ads are still present.



I wanted to wait a couple of weeks before saying anything. I wanted to wait until the changes where pretty much fixed to avoid commenting on things that wouldnt last or would just be temporary.

Now, I know this is a privately owned site web and that I could just fuck off if I don't like the way it is but I wanted to state my views anyway. Honestly, I was ok with most of the changes, beside what I said in my second point. However, the big banner on the left that follows, what I think of a useless, quick link box pretty much disapointed me. It might sound exagerated but in my mind, this demonstrate pretty well where ASC is heading at. Looks like what was at start a few ideas to support ASC might just get transformed in something less helpful and less innocent, maybe.

Speculations aside, this big banner takes all the view space and is not needed. Even more so that it displays credit score and related shits. Please keep the design simple, the yesterday's version was perfect.

Thanks you,

F!reStorm*

I think the new clutter serve no purposes too.

The search bar, subject title in thread headers, and especially the quick link box to the left. Anoying as hell.

If it's absolutely needed the quick link would be better off on the right hand side. But it's not needed on the main forum index page.

The sponsor links as a bar across the top would be better off than how it is now under the quick links.
