    It stretches the page out so that about 30% of it is off the right side of the screen for me :( Horizontal scrolling = </3

    do i get money? no. will i get money? hopefully. my goal is for the site to sustain itself financially and maybe earn a little more to expand.

    right now ive had a few guys donate some money to the site, and while i appreciate their donations immensely, its nowhere near enough to cover all site expenses this month.
    dont worry though, the site will stay up as long as i have a job :wavey:

    Even still, the burden shouldn't be entirely on you. The stretching was a little annoying, but certainly manageable. Try and get an ad for the forum page that's closer to a box than a rectangle. The one on the front page is fine.

    Well, I have turned off ABP for this website for a couple reasons.

    1. the ads are not annoying.
    2. They are actually a little interesting (the amazon one shows whats popular and how much more popular it is right now)
    3. I feel kinda bad that you are putting up so much money on the website and I want to support, but am a starving college student who is trying to save up some money for books and clicking ads is the least I can do to help out.

    If you can find some small way to drop an ad at the top of this page I would go for it.

    *edit* Damn... Totally missed the google one... heh

    heh, im trying to incorporate ads that wont interfere so much with registered users. I understand that many of you guys are college students, and that is hard, trust me, i know.

    Im still tweaking some stuff so bare with me fellas. :queer:
