Site Update

Advertising and Launch Radio

I have seen some annoying popunder ads displayed on metalunderground.com and will assure you all that I'll be cutting back on them. I occasionally run a few of them because they pay better than the normal banner ads (to offset the cost of site hosting), but if they are really big or annoying and piss people off, it's just not worth it. If you're really against popups, check out this program, POW, that I use to get rid of the most common and annoying ads.

Also on the agenda is the fact that I've pulled the Launch streaming radio links, as the image links were no longer working. Once I find the proper links again, I'll put the link to the Launchcast radio back on the left sidebar somewhere.
