I agree. The ads are very annoying.

I don't claim to speak for YAC, but I think if we had a better cash flow from KIPR or from donations, the ads would go away. Running Botball Live isn't exactly free for us; we have to make up some of the funds somehow. Also, I don't really notice the ads much, but that's just me.

I do not mind the dating sites! Hahaha, but I do believe it is a good thing to get ads. Ads produce money for the Bot Ball community. Ah well I do find it humorous to see dating sites here though!

Yup, I agree, the ads don't really matter too much and I know KIPR have to get money. I understand it all. All I'm saying is that the kind of ads that you get are incredible. But, this post is more like a cheerful joke than an actual suggestion or discussion at this matter.

All of these posts I completely agree with. Ads do help fund websites and programs (in this case Botball Community) and without them some organizations can't run. Jeremy I do see your point about how if this was better funded, then the ads would probably be taken away. I personally do not mind the ads, especially if it is helping to run this website. Anyways, this is my opinion on the matter.
Thanks!

Yup, even Youtube, which is owned by google is living off of ads.

Yep, most businesses got ads for money. The ads do not pay for the whole thing, but it basically takes away from the taxes.

Ads are a great source of money. Money is very powerful. Some kids do not understand the value of money. I was the same, as a young child most kids want toys! But the older one get the value of money is more important.
