On my website, I have a link to the W, but I was wondering if there were other ways to advertise the board? By that, I was thinking banner ads, and whatever else.

What is the general concensus on that? I'd be happy to place a banner ad on my site if it meant more traffic (and effectively, more revenue) for the W.

I'd almost be tempted to design a T-shirt with the W's address on the back :-)

Comments?

Point taken, but I figured you'd be interested in free advertising or something of the sort. My bad.

So I went to www.steviekay.tk to see what kind of overwhelming response I might expect to get if I really kissed your ass publicly and somehow got a "free advertising" banner ad out of the deal.

According to your counter, I was visitor #143.

We'll pass on that kind offer for now.

You know, sometimes I get the impression you are being mean on purpose.

I know you're the main admin of this page, but come on...was that really necessary? I'm not talking about any form of "ass kissing" or whatever else: it's a showing of support to the board. That has to mean something, right?

...and I don't understand why. I really don't.

My point is: it's not about major advertising: better advertising can be found elsewhere. It's the same like having a Sacramento Kings banner (or whatever): it's to show what we like and who we root for and what we like.

WHen I first joined to board, I found out about it through a personal website that talked about it: so stuff like that does indeed work.

Oh, and that was visitor #143 since I switched over to Geocities...about two weeks ago or so.

You don't need MY permission to do it! Knock yourself out! It's not going to make one whit of difference to me either way! There's simply no way I can better express to you how much I don't care if you do this or if you don't! Would you prefer I made up some lies? I usually don't do that but in your case I could try to make an exception...

Believe me, "mean" is a whole nother level. We can argue about how much respect I'm still showing but in my warped mind, what I've said until now is still "a tempered response." We're getting closer to "mean" the longer this thread goes on, I'm sure. But don't worry; SOMEONE will be entertained by it, even if it isn't you OR me!

Great, so you're averaging ten hits a day and if today were a normal day, I would have represented 10% of that. BUT! In fact, since I linked to you (FREE ADVERTISING) earlier in THIS thread, you've received at least TWENTY hits which means you've at least TRIPLED your daily hit count! How do you like me NOW? I'm working in MYSTERIOUS WAYS for the betterment of the ENTIRE Internet!!!!

Okay, here's my serious face. Plenty of people have put up plenty of links to this board without starting a thread about it. They didn't ask me what I thought about it; they just did it. THEY know what they've done and when I see the referrals, *I* know what they've done, but we don't talk about it, and we've never felt a NEED to talk about it. I didn't ask Cubs or Rick or Rapp when I linked them at the bottom dropdown, I just did it because I liked their sites and wanted others to check 'em out. I really, really, really don't understand what the point of this thread is.

So, no, I didn't set out to act like a dick and alienate *anyone* who *ever* thought of helping this board attract more visitors. But even with that in mind... come on, man. Don't put a counter on the site if you don't want me to LOOK at it. THINK about what you're asking. If you're honestly surprised by my response, I don't know what to tell you, although in a perfect world and on another level you might be flattered that I devoted the time to click over to your site just to find something to use in my (not as harsh as I could have been, trust me) response.

On the plus side, you haven't tried playing the "you're just gonna ban me anyway like you ban everybody else" card, which is usually wrong about 100% of the time at the time it's played, so hey, you've got that going for you.

EXCELSIOR!

What do you mean by referrals? Can you tell where I was before this, or are you just talking about where newbies are coming from ... cause if you can tell where I'm coming from I probably should make an effort to stopoff at a more appropriate site before coming in here.

When someone clicks on a link to go to a site, the visited site can see where that person came from. That's how this page (The W) is able to be created. Its helpful to try and figure out why you have a sudden spike in traffic (oh, so-and-so linked to me, Google just updated its cache, etc) and stuff of that nature.

However, if you use a bookmark or type "http:\\the-w.com" into your address bar, I don't *think* it registers as a referral, so they won't know where you came from before. I think...

I'm sure I've gone over our referrals page a million times, so I'll just send you to http://the-w.com/referrals.php rather than talk about it again.

If people are referred to us via another site AND their browser reports that other site's link as the "referer" (most of them do...some people have software that masks it because they consider it a privacy violation) then it gets logged. No, I probably can't tell where you've been before you come here because it doesn't work that way. Finally, damn you, Eddie.

I'm really sorry you feel this way, but I certainly received the answer I was looking for.
