I am posting this for my wife (caligirlpei) who is a non gold member. As a non gold member she can't post here and also can't use the member support function as it is only gold members right now as well.

First off, she wants me to say that she understands that Sploofus needs ads to generate revenue, and also that she enjoys the site. It is just that the ads, starting today or yesterday, are right beside the answer choices in the quiz...above the number of questions bar...and flash, move, light up, and are generally very distracting. This has made it impossible for her to do quizzes, and just on the month where she had decided to take a run at first place.
Is there any way she can get different ads...ones that don't flash. or at least in a different place? If not she will have to, reluctantly, stop taking quizzes.
She links to Sploofus from her blog, and doesn't want to promote a site that has those flashy ones as well.

Sploofus has recently changed to a new advertising network, and I am working with the new system to eliminate distracting ads with excessive animation.

Is there anything you don't do Justin? My car needs washing and I could go for a great piece of meatloaf.

All in good time, I guess? I hear Justin already makes great coffee, does email and can do anything a GPS can....better!

(My requirements for any new doohickey my guy wants: coffee/email/GPS)

I agree those excessively flashing ads are REALLY annoying and, if they have to appear anywhere on the site, they shouldn't appear on the timed pages (and preferably wouldn't appear anywhere). My personal pet peeve, although I didn't see these for that week when Gold members were getting ads, are those darn "System Status: Urgent Attention Required!" ads which try to sell you a registry cleaner or virus remover or whatever...

But, having said that...Machiabelly, your wife is obviously enjoying the site, as you do. Why not just go for Gold? (ABSOLUTELY no offense intended...Just curious.)

Money question. Just not feasible at this time. No offense taken
