Why all the ads?

Yes, yes, Campaign Creations currently has ads listed on the bottom and right of this snazzy layout. "But why, Lavarinth?" That's simple, voice in my head, it's for everyone. Yes, everyone. Contests need prizes, prizes need to exist, to exist they need money. Yes, that's right, Campaign Creations will be hosting contests. All rewards will generally be related to Blizzard and can generally raise from costing a lot of money, to costing probably a few cents. It really all just depends on the difficulty and just how much those little suckers on the bottom and right generate. Some prizes may also involve simply being allowed sneak peaks at projects and so forth, like previous mentioned, it simply depends.

"But why the FireFox ads?" Because FireFox makes Campaign Creations look great! We're still dealing with Internet Explorer display issues, leading to problems with how text or the the header appears. Hopefully, this'll be resolved soon, but for now, those with FireFox get to experience Campaign Creations how it was meant to be.

Enjoy folks, more news to come.

Signed,
Lavarinth

You can't even see them lol. I'm liking the contest idea though, should spark some community action!

Also, anyone who is using internet explorer needs to switch to firefox now!

Yeah because Firefox lets me block ads...


edit: although I guess it shouldn't even matter since as an existing Firefox user I do not fall within the target audience.
Wait, a free browser has paid ads??! What the fuck ??? Crazy nerds.

As much as I'd love to drain you of all of your hard-earned cash, I don't exactly feel remotely safe giving out any kind of information at all.

But, I could always give you information of someone else, who would then refer the funds to another individual, who would then send them to a contact, who would then send them to me. Yes, that might work. Heheh...

You picked the right kinda of ad, google adsense doesn't really live up to the hype (been using it myself for 2 years now).

While I love to flaunt my "LOLOLOL UR NOT GETTIN AD MONEYS FROM ME" awesomeness on sites that rely on paid advertising, I think telling other people how to circumvent it too is kind of stepping over the line...

I can't believe that people fall for the "YOU'VE JUST ONE A FREE XBOX 360" ads. Come on, how dumb can you be?

here in norway we get a different version of that. we get "out drink the other guy" instead

if there's one kind of ad I hate its the kind that pop up and replace the page with a big scanner thing.
clicking anywhere will attempt to install the damn spyware.
