Important [Only Topic] Why advertisement ????

Post by maiquang on November 10th 2010, 10:04 am

First topic message reminder :

I have a great time with the other members but Why advertisement column reappear.

Made an Only Topic



@Typlo wrote:Dear user,

I'm sorry for the inconvenience it may have caused, the ads are here to support our developers and the staff so we can offer you new features.

This is only a test for the moment. Wink

Latest Update:
@Typlo wrote:We have taken into consideration your complaints, and due to popular demand we will add back the option "guests" in your admin panel.

So everything will be back to normal on your forums, but if you want to support us please keep the option as it is. Wink

We are sorry for the inconvenience, and will be studying new revenue ways for next year, the option Goldman26 mentioned on Page 10 seems a nice alternative.

Kirk has posted another comment in response to a member's question and he still doesn't know what's going on! This is becoming a laugh.

As mentioned before.....can we at least have the option of placing the adverts at the bottom of the pages? Some of the adverts are flashing with neon colors that do hurt your eyes. You want to quickly go to a new page only to find more flashing.

I disagree with your statement. If the ads have to be there at least let the owners choose the location for them with the added option of no flashing stuff.

We must remember the adverts may need to be there to keep us with free forums. Just let us have our options as to where to place the ads!

Thank you.
Glad

Please give us back the choice to have Ads taken off for our members I chose Forumotion because it had this facility. My forum has been running for four months and has 91 members, Today I am getting swamped with members telling me they are going to another forum.

My forum is for people who suffer with an illness and the adverts my members are seeing are not appropriate for the illness they suffer with.

This is a bad move on the part of Forumotion and I hope this will be fixed before I lose all my members and have to close and lose all my hard work.

As for the comment it is only in the UK I am in France.

Kirk this has only happened today, the last few days have nothing to do with it.

You were on the forums, and answering but not reading we saw it happening we've been waiting all day for anyone from Foumotion to comment then after 10 hours you come on denying post after post after post that there's nothing wrong with the ads. Perhaps you can understand that is a bit irritating and we were about to los the will to live.

You might not lie but you dont' inform yourself of what is going and just blast off standard replies. In my view that is not taking your customers seriously or respecting them. Sanket (bless him) was the same he had no idea and by then we had had Typlo's comment that it was a test. It is just very obvious that you are not a team and not well organised.

Just had an ad for D-KK cup bras by Bravissimo with a picture of a woman showing her bra, not everyone wants to see that and I wouldn't have thought it is suitable for children.

Er. What am I supposed to think then when one person says it is a bug, then another says it's some sort of a test, then one says the ads are just to earn money and then you say everything is like it's supposed to be? When you say things are like they are when they clearly aren't then technically it is a lie.

And it is not my fault you're stressed out or busy because of your tests. And what will banning me give you? A chance to let off steam by being mean to someone? I am not here to offend anyone personally I want this thing to be like it was. You can ban me all you want but you're still in the wrong when you say things are like they have always been and I haven't said one bad thing about you whereas some other people have said things about you personally and it's okay. Seriously, don't overreact.

We are not here because we enjoy it and we do not want to offend anyone. All we want is to be taken seriously and for the forum to be taking steps that have been thought through properly for all its customers.

Kirk, I'm glad to see at least one FM staff member has shown up. I hope that now that you are aware of the problem we're all experiencing, you'll take the necessary measures. The only thing we're asking for is to be heard when there's a problem and to have ONE official announcement telling us what's happening and what we should expect.

As I said before, I totally understand that FM has staff and lots of other costs in order to maintain their site and service to us. If you need funding for those costs through ads, maybe there's a way to keep everyone happy by:
a) reinstating the option of showing them only to guests
b) if that cannot be done, having text-type ads (not flashy, annoying ones)
c) controlling the content of the ads so they are appropriate for all the forums or give the admins an option in the Admin Panel
d) having them show only in the forums' homepages and not in every page
e) giving the forums' administrators the choice of placing the ads where they best fit their forums' design (bottom of the page, sidebar, etc.)
f) If nothing like that is possible, you could give the admins the possibility to pay for an ad-free forum and letting them know exactly how much it would cost and how we would be able to do it. Unfortunately, not everybody will be able to pay.

And most of all, letting the forums' admins know beforehand when something like this is going to happen.

Truly a sad day I have no members on my forum tonight this is a first. Only yesterday I was praising Forumotion on Twitter now I'm Tweeting apologies to my members who are talking to me via Twitter instead of the forum.

Is there no one from Admin going to give us some reassurance over this so we can inform our members?

I need some explaination on what is happening? i dont want to buy credits and then for the ads to suddenly go again for the members after i have paid for it when they could have been used for something else on here. Will any admin give us a explaination on weather they are staying or not?

And what will that acheive exactly? Why cause a nuisance and give the staff here even more work to do which will slow things further, I came here from a different host a while ago now, I trusted these guys and I still trust them now, the right thing will be done, give them a chance, the ads aren't pretty but i'm sure most members understand that sometimes things happen, try reassuring them rather than causing a riot.
