As you all know, I've never had a single ad on CycloneFanatic.com and I don't charge for anything, period. While I've always welcomed donations, I've never outright asked or begged for them. With the site growing and the traffic increasing, I'm making a very small change that shouldn't impact the users at all but will help offset some of the increasing costs.
With that in mind I would like to announce that I will be TESTING an ad or two specific to sports and/or Iowa State. The ads will be minimal and unobtrusive. I hate nothing more than visiting a site and getting inundated with ads so I would NEVER do that here.
Sometime over the next week or so I will try placing a small ad in the upper right corner of the page and maybe a small one in the left column. Please let me know if these ads become a hindrance or if you experience any problems from them being active.
Thank you for understanding and please remember that I love this place as much as you guys and I wouldn't do anything that I myself would have to put up with.
