Well, those of us with dial up still appreciate it Tom.

Every little bit helps, Tom. :] We <3 NG.

But you might want to change the AH ad that says "coming to a console near you," to something about it being out already and ready to go or something. Also, the duck hunt ad with the dog and everything is really really annoying. They should not be allowed to make ads with noise, it takes away from the NG experience. Sorry. ^^;;

...Although the ads that are flash that let you shoot stuff are kind of fun, when it's like 2 am and i'm really really bored or something... o.O; Damn short attention span.

THATS why it was loading faster. it used to take a while for the page to even show. it would show the background for about 30 seconds before showing any content of the site. now its showing alot faster.

I agree, this ad is a pain in the ass when viewing flash, because it's just to obtrusive. Please get rid of it. Thank you.

The only thing I noticed on the front page was the death of a crap ad. Otherwise, 'thing is absolute same Tom.

though not that big of an issue,
i do agree that it is annoying.
when you try to watch a movie,
i keep hearing the old, 8 bit audio
of duck shooting, constantly in the
background. it can easily be fixed
by refreshing the page and getting
a different ad, but since you have
been making some...

I've noticed most relating gifs (such as all the /layout4/____.gifs) load in "packs" now, instead of 1 after the other after the other so on and so forth. I'm not on dial-up so this wasn't as easy to notice, but I was able to notice. Overall; faster load time. (hopefully this isn't just the plecbo-effect)

Now everyone, please tell me I'm a suck up because I said something positive to an admin, I'll be sure not to read your post and I'll also be sure not to note who you even are. Thanks to everyone at the Hay Barn. Hay

Indeed, that ad needs to die a firery death.

Oh Tom, you forgot to remove the collegehumor, sportsbybrooks, and bullz-eye ads. Seriously. I really get tired at seeing nasty whores on the front page.
