You also can get an email address, larger avatars, etc etc. It's kinda nice.

Email? I guess that could be useful, if you want to join Neogaf or smth....

Ah, okay.
Over two months on PC and I've never noticed the different sized avatars for supporters until now. @_@ Wow, I need to pay more attention...

@LilJz
Well then! D;
Haha I wonder what determines which ads are shown? Because it's constant ads for rehab and "teen help" (they don't specify what it's for) websites.
Probably your browsing history and regional settings. A lot of my ads aren't in English, and they're mostly about cell phones.

Mines were mostly about World of Warcraft :C

The ads depends on what you search for the most on your browser history? o.o

Ah.
I don't know why that would show up if it's that way. Unless it sees specific Wikipedia pages in my browser history... " Haha...

I'm going to have to write down the ads it shows. It's weird how they all are about the same.

A lot of Ads on the web do, I don't know about PC's. But for my PC's ads, its like on other websites were its browser history based, so I'm deducing its the same here.

I've had adblock on for so long. The only time I ever see ads are on my mobile devices - my Wii, 3DS and craplet.

The ads don't bother me. Just confuse me haha. x; Wait- does it pick up the browser history on every device you use to access PC? If so, this makes more sense.

Wait we can admit to using adblock? Cause if so, then yeah so have I. But I did test the ads to see if its based on the browser, so yeah. And I would assume so, yes. I can't say for certain as:
1)I don't know what the admins use for their ads.
2)I am a simple user, using only common logic for the ads.

A lot of places use Google Analytics, which means when you Google things or use Chrome they tailor the ads base on where you go and what you search for.

Yeah. It's not like it's a criminal offence lol. But the ads generate money revenue to support the site.

That could result in some...interesting...ads. I:
I'm really not sure why they show me ads for rehab places, though? I don't remember googling or using websites pertaining to that. Well, aside from looking something up that was irrelevant to drugs and ending up with a mass amount of pictures of weed :?

That's why I was worried to admitting it, I don't want to stop them revenues. And google analytics is exactly what I'm thinking of, perhaps PC uses them as well.

Yeah. It'll try finding relevant topics to what you search. For some reason though, a little while back, some users were complaining that they were seeing similar ads on "Gay Interracial Dating". So I think it's a bit of both.

Lol the ad I'm currently seeing on my page is about OCBC Titanium MasterCard. That's weird since I don't go into any banking websites. O.o

I'm already getting letters in the mail about getting a Capital One Mastercard. I'm not even 18 yet.

Ah, okay.
I guess I'll just have to hope nobody I know gets on this account and gets suspicious haha. Then again, their seeing the ads will be heck of a lot easier to explain than seeing my inbox here. x;

So apparently I'm getting adds for World of Tanks. I guess that's good, considering the many game sites I go to.

I'm getting spam emails about various World of Warcraft-related games. I don't play those games, nor do I own any.

And is anyone getting a ton of 500 Internal Server Error errors?

Nope. But I was just off PC to cook, so perhaps I just haven't run into any yet.

You probably won't miss out. I've been getting them for the past 15 minutes at random times.

Yeah I've been getting 500s for the last hour, and random slowdowns. Speaking about cooking, anyone else love the flavor of Pasta and soy sauce? I mean sure noodles and soy sauce make sense, but plain old pasta with some soy sauce is divine.

That actually sounds really good! Then again, I eat anything and soy sauce makes pretty much everything good, so.
