As part of our continuing efforts to keep GateWorld online ... we are migrating to a new advertising provider this week.
If you are using an Ad Blocker and you're a regular around these parts let me ask you to please consider adding gateworld.net to your Ad Blocker's whitelist. We need the revenue to pay the server bill and other costs.
If you have ads on the forum (and the main site), you'll notice a few things are different. Some of this is experimental (and your feedback is welcome!). The top banner has migrated off the header image to the top of the page body (white space), below the navigation.
There are also new "sticky" ads that will scroll with you, hopefully in a minimally obtrusive way, on the left and possibly the bottom of a desktop browser. Note that these will not appear on every page load.
Finally: Expect some tweaks, fixes, and changes as we complete the implementation and experiment with some changes. Hopefully the new set-up will help to benefit the site in a way that doesn't harm your reading experience.
