Some advertising on Xboxyde ?

Some advertising on Xboxyde ?

My boss made me understand last week that considering how much bandwidth the main xboxyde server uses it would be "nice" that I participate a bit in the costs. I don't want to switch hosting since what I have now is pretty much what's best available here in France so I'm thikink about putting a Google Ad-Sense vertical text Ad like I did on Games media mirror. Before I do that I'd like to know if it is a problem for you guys or not. Just reply to this news and tell me what you think. I think I can more or less deal with the costs without advertising but it would be a great help.
Of course I hate as much as anyone else these awful and intrusive flash ads and stuff, I'd rather stop this site than use stuff like that.
Update : The ad is now online for a one week test period. I'll decide if it stays or goes next sunday.
Update 2 : The ad has been removed. What I lost in credibility having this banner was definitely not worth $2 a day ;)

I don't mind an ad left or right, als long as it isn't intrusive flash ads like you said ;)
pop-ups are OK too, my firefox blocks them anyway :P

yeah that's fine with me, as long as there are no .exe pop ups, or any porn stuff

No popups, no flash, and certainly nothing borderline legal like that ;)

Please nooooooo, no popups, no ads, I like this website too much to see it going bad like a lot of them out there, but do it if ONLY if you really, really, really have to.

If the ads help the site, than be my guest.

    Melmoth i've got a "playlist" of 2-3 games i'm gonna play, so when something new comes out it will have to wait either way. (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Melmoth: exactly. i rarely buy games day one these days. and it's probably why i care so little about reviews. by the time i'm buying a lot of these games they're £15. (1 Hour ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth ofc with online games that might not be optimal, as you wanna join in on the fun as soon as possible, and hopefully before everyone moves on to another game. (1 Hour ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth so if you wait a month, or half a year, you get the game cheap, and hopefully without too many bugs. win/win (1 Hour ago)
