Do they actually sponsor this site or something? The adds on the top are kinda annoying.

They are annoying, but I think it's a way for Martin & Andrew to get a little income for the site. I'm guessing they will need it in order to afford managed hosting.

It would be nice if the ads could be a little less obtrusive.

Let's be fair -- the ads aren't that big a deal. I have blocked them on my personal computer from other forums I have posted on, but out of courtesy to Martin and Andrew, I removed my block on my computers and am not going to tell people the trick.

If a little ad up top helps them out, I think it's a good thing.

Well, it's understandable if Martin and Andrew wanna make a little profit or something here, and I totally support them for that, but I just think it would be better just to have Googles name and a smaller link or something, on each page, as opposed to the enormous rectangular link on the top.

Either way, I'll still post on this site for 19 hours a day, which isn't really a lot.

Rumor has it that clicking the ads makes them less annoying.

You can make us look but you can't make us click.

Maybe if the ads said something about Jessica Alba...

clicking on the ads is the only way you are supporting the site.

That's true. It's called 'traffic'. Advertisers always look for signs of interest. Not neccessarily buying, but if there's interest, then the possibilities of doing business is there and they will pay to advertise. So yes, if you click, you support this site. But unless you intend to buy, don't go too far. Maybe a few purchases will go a long way also, in keeping the ads interested, thus establishing a relationship with UK. I think UK needs to tap into more traffic themselves to make paid advertisements work more in thier interests in keeping this site funded. Maybe you guys need to put out a few ads yourself (or some kind of trade off) to let people know you exist. This site seems to be a pretty tight group though, so you need to weigh whether you want more outsiders coming in vs. keeping it sort of your own little club. If you commercialize though, rules will probably have to get tight also. Now your talking about a for profit site, instead of a bunch of good friends. So maybe the cap, t-shirt and sweatshirt with UK logo stuff on it might be the way to go, to help pay for better services. But what the hell do I kow. Just a few thoughts. Always glad to help.

Also Martin & Andrew, I wonder if there are any 'Knick clubs in Secondlife?' You could very well be the first and the potentials I think are endless.

I used to play SecondLife for a while. I don't play much anymore, but I remember at the time, there was an NBA group, which I was a member of. I don't remember any Knicks groups, but there could be some now.
