Site Update

A Note on Banner Ads on Metal Underground.com

I just wanted to make a brief note about the advertising here on metalunderground.com. I've made some changes that should mean you all see a lot more relevant metal ads rather than the usual minimally relevant ads that are often seen on here and other sites. Upon implementing this new system, I also wanted to ask that if anyone experiences any problems - especially a file download dialogue - to let me know about it. If something like that happens, it's not adware or spyware or anything, but likely a snippet of HTML code downloading as plain text.

I think the ads will not only be well-received by our readers (you), but will also compliment the site design a lot better than the "other" kinds of ads we've run in the past. Lastly, I know many people would prefer not to see any ads on Metalunderground.com, but the advertising helps pay for the costs associated with running this site including hardware, hosting fees, other services and a tiny bit of advertising as well.

What's Next?

It looks like the possible download error was a non-issue and everything is working fine. Back to the metal news...
