    Seriously... I'd be bored at work if I didn't have BG (and I don't even play FF anymore)..
    question thou... is there a way to donate w/o having my personal info sent? I tried to just do it and it was listing where I live and everything, so curious if I can get around that or if that just comes up for my own personal info

    Will you be leaving the donate button up after the Jan '09 drive is over? I'd like to donate, but thanks to my job giving us a forced week off right after I paid for a trip to Florida, money is tight until next month.

    Yea I use a program called Hostsman ( abelhadigital.com ) to keep my host file updated with adblocking etc. It even blocks myspace and such so it can be annoying to some but I like to be safe. You can also use the program to easily edit your hosts file and customize what you want disabled etc.

    SephYuyX told me that it's a doubleclick.net ad but I don't really know which entry to delete in my Hosts because it has like 1000 different doubleclick.net entries >_>

    Done. Sorry I'm not rich or I'd have tried to give a little more. That and my hours are cut big time in the winter so I'm pretty broke until Aprilish. Thanks

    Does the adgroup work by impressions are unique click-throughs? I'd never click them and I don't want to configure Noscript and Adblock Plus blah blah blah for ads I'd never click. If it's based on unique impressions, that's a different story. Either way, I'll try to do what I can when you have donation drives.

    I just had a quick adblock/noscript question regarding this. I joined the ads group and I allowed BG on adblock and noscript, and googlesyndication is allowed on noscript by default, so now I see a banner at the top and the bottom. Occasionally threads pop up here about viruses on ffxiah and other sites, which are not hosted on the sites themselves but come via the random advertisements. Is there something further I should configure to prevent the chance of that happening here while still generating revenue for the site? Or is that not even an issue with the way ads are setup here?

    Um, you should be ok. NoScript protects against cross-linking and other types of exploits that might try to use an advertisment to get you to run a script from an untrusted source. NoScript should pick it up. You could also more tediously configure things, I'm sure.

    Besides, most of us didn't even know about this so an RMT who visits the site might not even know there's ads to exploit. Furthermore, the administrators here are most likely staying on top of things to keep the site safe.

    I'm still trying to figure out if the ads generate revenue for impressions or for clicks so I can decide whether its worth it or not to even enable them and setup noscript/adblock for them. I certainly wouldn't bother clicking them and I never read ads anyways unless they are a little mini game like if i shoot the jihadist I win a free bike.
