Default New theme ads

As I'm sure you may notice, the company who does our ads have started getting some full skin ones in place - they will last only a very brief period of time and help in being able to pay for the servers/bills (currently we don't make enough in ads to pay for the monthly bills)

Just thought I'd give a heads up in case people wondered what was up - thanks for your support of AP, without ads (and without more ads) we won't be able to keep the site running.

yeah, its not my choice. we made the skins so ads would look nice eventually, so they could be in that middle space too, but the company right now is set up to only show them on the sidebars. theres no easy way to collapse that space so itll have an ugly black bar for now

(after reading it)

i do apologize as i know it's not ideal - in a perfect world AP would have no ads and the multiple hundreds of $ for the bills each month would pay themselves (or i'd be rich and wouldnt mind paying out of pocket again), but until then, it's the only way to scrape by ;_; even with the ads we're pretty much breaking even at best. i still havent paid myself a single cent for the entire 11 years of site work.

Figured this was the case. To be honest, I don't particularly mind my ad with the Tales of the Crypt guy always staring at me while I'm looking at AP - it gets me in the Halloween mood. Optimism FTW!

I wish I could help more, but I'll try to resume donating once in a while.
As for the new ads, I never even noticed them, maybe I've been lucky and not seen any yet. =P
