Ads on Seibertron

Postby balgorra » Mon Jul 02, 2012 3:12 pm

I know that the ads on Seibertron are here to help pay for the site, but some of the random ones that appear on the banner and side of the page are just bad matches for this site. Today I saw a couple for Aimeronline.com and one for Venus.com. I do not think that a site that is dedicated to kids toys, even though most of us are probably adult collectors, should have adds for women's lingerie, aimer, or adds that sell through showing sexual images, venus and snorg tees and another t-shirt company. I think that these could end up turning some people off from using Seibertron. To illustrate this, if a child asked a parent if they could view this site and the parent checked the homepage and saw a women in lingerie on the banner or a women in a t-shirt and panties on the side of the page, they might come to the conclusion that this is an unsafe site for the child.
I feel that whatever company is in charge of that ad space could find more appropriate ads for that space. I will get off my soapbox, everyone can continue on as normal now.

I hate to break this to you, but those ads are based on your personal surfing habits, only you get 'em. Now that you've shared with us what ads you get, your post officially is hilarious.

Partially correct.

Ryan does have some control on what ads are displayed, next time you see them there should be something that says who the ads are provided by. Note it down and let Ryan know and he'll look into things.

Thanks Burn, I sent a PM to Ryan about it. They were both put up by AdChoices.
