Ads

The ads I'm seeing on top of the forum homepage make no sense.

CarID. Seriously? That place sells nothing but cheap, stick-on parts like fake portholes. No self-respecting Saab owner(with the possible exception of ViggenLuca) would stick that garbage on their Saabs.

Why don't you place ads on here that appeal to Saab owners? We don't drive your average car, we are not the average car owner.

That banner is a vendor banner not an ad banner, if a vendor wants that banner they get it. Since Card ID is a vendor and wanted it they get it. If you want site relevant things then vendors need to sell on that banner, .

Oh, yeah, also, these ads sure do suck. Either these vendors are idiots, or ProctoScope or whoever runs this place now are fucking rocket surgeons. "We'll bill you for each view of your ad across our entire network, even if Saab enthusiasts aren't going to give a rat's ass about exhaust tips for Chevy Novas!"

fixed it. Should be https://www.saablink.net/forum/857300-post1.htm
The link within that post should go to tire rack, but instead is rerouted to autoguide, a vertical scope website.

It should go here: http://tirerack.com/tires/tires.jsp?tireMake=Hankook&tireModel=Ventus+Z214

Not here: http://tires.autoguide.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.tirerack.com%2Ftires%2Ftires .jsp%3FtireMake%3DHankook%26tireModel%3DVentus%2BZ 214%26partnum%3D25ZR6Z214C71%26vehicleSearch%3Dfal se%26fromCompare1%3Dyes

I understand VS/AG is trying to collect revenue through click through links, but in the process they totally killed some externals links.

Yes, because Blaque didn't think us members could properly handle the site. (ownership)

What? You can't figure out that there was an extra set of [] in the post? Noob.

But whats going on with this ad redirection is bullshit. His link was for tires on TireRack, your redirect doesn't even go to a site that sells tires. If it redirected to a site that sold tires I'd understand.

Autoguide has ruined so many websites this way.

Also, I plan on writing Car Id and telling them that they are wasting their money b advertising here.

Quit fucking with OUR website. I don't care if AG does own it. We were here first and we deserve that respect.
