    Do you use Norton Internet Security or similar firewall or ad blocker. If I have adblocking enabled in NIS, I don't see the Crucial ad or even a place holder.

    ^^Ditto^^ I also run AdShield but that doesn't seem to effect the crucial ads. Disable the Norton Ad Blocking and you should be able to see the ad.

    We are, but we prefer that our sponsors buy their space rather than offering commision, we're big boys.

    Can anyone explain to me exactly how this works... with the sponsors and stuff ? I mean do you just get some loot from companies for hosting an ad, is it that simple ? Or am I missing the big picture?

    neoterixx, This site has over 18,000 members in the forums, and probably a good few thousand more who visit the front pages from day to day, now Crucial like this, and think they could gain business by putting there advert on the site, and pay for the space.

    Its like TV Advertising, a company will pay for air time and theres a chance people will take notice, and theres a chnce they wont.
