    i think this is a key point for the owners to consider: are people really clicking on it?
    You are absolutely 100% right.

    surely, surley not. perhaps im being naive, but seriously...
    If they don't then there's no point it being there. I can track everything. I'm not about to reveal trade secrets:p: but I have very good reason to believe it will help keep TSR afloat.

    I'll consider it...honest. Let's just see what happens with this place.

    In its defence, it negligably affects the site usability. Agreed?

    Also, it's no less and certainly no more intrusive than the post signatures we allow.

    Ta - C
    But we can choose how intrusive signatures are by using the sig-a-tron thing. So yeah, it is more intrusive than post signatures in the sense that we have no choice in it being there.

    I know the banner means I can now find the Motoring section far easier

    Site with 1000 regular users online at anyone point = cost. Cost which is paid by both subscribers and admin staff. Banners are there to help out costs and shouldn't be frowned upon. Just that the banner is in the wrong place IMO.

    If anyone wants to do something, such as compete in athletics at the highest level, you will need sponsorship. Sponsorship or adverts pay the brunt of the cost and shouldn't be looked down upon

    Yeah, that's fab, I don't have a problem with adverts, something's got to pay for this place. My problem is with that advert specifically for the reasons I've already posted

    Signatures can be turned off using Sig-A-Tron.

    Coursework.info is owned by the same company that owns TSR.

    Its hardly sponsorship, more shameless self promotion.

    perhaps the owner is a fan of food and shelter?

    Argh!

    Placement = crap.
    Reason for advertisements = fine, it keeps TSR afloat, can't argue with that.
    But can we not be a little more choosy over what we advertise?

    Mmm, I did wonder about that. But whatever, if they want to advertise coursework.info then that's their prerogative I suppose.

    Exactly. Right now for example, there are over 700 people on this site, 19 hoursago there was a record of 842 people on it, there are over 54000 members in total most of whom come from a specific group (British students) who have made nearly 4.5million posts. Surely this would be a site many companies would love to advertise on? There should be no reason for them to advertise such a controversial website

    Agreed. Maybe Student Media Services should reach out a bit, and find out if any other companies wish to advertise on TSR. Come on' we're students for goodness sakes. There are hundreds of products targeted at us - coursework cheating shouldn't be one of them, and shouldn't be advertised on TSR, and website with a controversial history regarding exams and cheating.
