I don't mind ads if they're Amiga related. Where else can Amiga companies advertise these days other than Amiga forums? I'm glad I won't have to see any non-related ads anymore though.
Hopefully, if and when Bill decides to bring back the advertisements, he'll go with Google Ads.  

Because of a couple of buttheads who are no longer on the site, I lost the ability to use Google Ads long, long ago, and the Yahoo ads that were running could not be targeted towards the Amiga, because I was literally too successful at targeting them on other sites.  

For example, starting two weeks before Valentine's day, I ran ads for chocolates, candies and flowers on my Days Of Our Lives site (filled with housewives).  What that meant was that for two weeks, I was getting about $50/day off of that one site, which triggered Yahoo's "fail" button and they took away the ability to target ads from my whole account.

Sucks, but at least they didn't completely remove me from the program which would have literally ended Amiga.org years ago.

I prefer static ads without any animation unless I am curious enough to click on them;I despise the equivalent of a carny barker  when I 'm just strolling by.
 Perhaps some sort of subscription be required in order to post ?

Of course.  I think all of us probably agree that any Amiga-related ads on this website would be viewed as an enhancement.  Looking forward to lots of those!  On the the other hand, flash ads about losing bellyfat or free credit reports would become quite annoying very quickly.

There were ads?

I guess I'm just too used to adblock.


Ditto. I just found out that Facebook has ads too.

So yeah, a.org, knock yerself out with ads :-)

You guys watch Dr.Who ? You know how people look at the Tardis but just don't register it in the brain ? That's how Ad's look to me!
Stick them in if you must, I won't even notice.
Falling into a dark and red rage.

Amiga related ads would be more than welcome, imo.

Who's "Transition" anyway?  Is this the new owner?
