Removed Dating Ads from AB & Category Introductions

Good afternoon,

I've made a small change to our advertising on the site, mainly after seeing a really really bad dating advert for "date single mom's"

So we're not going to have dating ads (unless if really badly affects the cash-flow).

There has also been some complaints about an advert which is making noise. If you see if could you identify the company or the web address the advert goes to please and let me know. I've yet to see it so removing it is an issue.

In other, slightly related news, we will be rolling out the new ad format for category pages (i.e. http://www.theanswerbank.co.uk/Motoring/ with less owl) this gives us the opportunity to put some category description/helpful hints in. I wondered if anyone would like to offer some ideas for what they'd really like to see in the category description.

Before we begin though, I think we've got Q&P covered :)

All the best,

Ed

'Owls of protest...
The date single moms ad is the only reason sqad frequents this site though!
Chuck.....LOL....to bloody right it is.

Single mums, pregnant mums, married mums......they all deserve a trial with sqad.
Oh ewww Ed, don't like the format you're having. Is it just my PC that shows all the gumph relating to the category all clumped up, and takes up almost 2/3rds of the page?
well, mine doesn't. Now I'll never know how I'd fare in the single moms dating market

Is there an English translation available?

Send me a screenshot please B00 and I'll have a look.
B00... do you use AdblockPlus? I think it's all 'clumped up' to the left as the right hand side has an advert which shows as a white blank space if you use an ad blocker.
i've used Bad Translator http://www.ackuna.com/badtranslator and it's tranlsated "Oh ewww Ed, don't like the format you're having. Is it just my PC that shows all the gumph relating to the category all clumped up, and takes up almost 2/3rds of the page?" as:-

"Hi ı have the names of all pages of the Ministry of education provides all kinds of important weight of only 20,000 Aoou Gomf on my computer?"
bibblebub...LOL

I've not seen that before, excellent. Here is what Snags really meant:

"(B) is 0 if you are using Adblock Plus does not require waste bandwidth and reliability rules, left, right, as my."
For some reason TinyPic is throwing a thromby and won't let me upload a pic of my screenshot, but I think snaggles is right, ive got and ad blocker and that's what it appears to be doing.
Have you indeed... please hand your Mod badge back immediately ;-p
For some reasons, let me load and throws TinyPic thromby shot for me, but I think it is good, and the information window is displayed, is what snaggles resembles dry."
It translated it as "Group-boolox" for me. Make of that what you will.
Hi Ed..... If knocking out offensive ads should affect cash flow, please let me know and I'll try to persuade other ABers to join me in a collection; along with a fiver from me.

In the meantime, try to do something about the flashing adverts to which your attention has been drawn. :-

Ron.
very interesting, "Something is rotten in the state of Denmark" came out as "Danish", which sounds more like a Burger King order than Shakespeare.
"TinyPic and let me save screenshot thromby B00 caste, some of my reasons, but I think it is good, and it shows the Info window is, what looks like dry snaggles."
"Something is rotten in the state of Denmark" just ended up as:

Soul astigmatism height from national Denmark silence
Pbuh etc, from pedant's corner Ab Editor :

//effects// the cash flow??

So, if I'm following the rest, no more owl-dating is a real let-down.
