      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Political Banners

Recommended Posts

I wasn't really a fan of the corporate banners when they came to cc.com, but hey I don't own the site. That being said, is there any way we don't have to see ads from Newt/Mitt/Barry/Cock Bros. et al. With all the technical prowess here is that possible, or will Google give you a -----slap?

It's not the board, dude, it's your adsense. Google only shows you what it's bagillion doller self-aware ubercomputer has computed you really want to see, even if you don't consciously acknowledge it.

 

I get climbingsingles and cougarlife and chinesematchmaker and the occasional AAC or Nissan ad. Never once seen anything political up there.

 

Do you feel a tingle in your pants when Newt debates?

I'll look into whether we can block political ads in the adsense.

Ok we "should" see less political ads now. If there are any others that people find highly annoying please let us know. The dating ads get a surprising number of clicks.

I have noticed problems with adds on the upper right hand of the photo gallery. All of the adds seem to obscure the links on the upper right hand side. Adds from the AAC and others partially obscure the links. I can use the links even with the add shading.

 

There is a dating add with a bright red background color. When that add comes up I can't identify or use the links. I don't care if the add is there or not, but it does bother me when I can't see or use the links.

I'm trying to ween myself off PoliSpray. Tend to get all riled up over the stupid MF'ers, and my violent tendencies lead me to write shit that one day will come to bite me in the ass. Surprised there hasn't been a knock on the door yet.

No. Just an overwhelming urge to take a dump.

Are you using IE?

 

Nope, Chrome. I'll try Firefox

 

Edit: Firefox does the same thing. It's the Fitness Singles add that blocks all the links on the right side
