banner ad? seriously?

i just want to point out that the new banner across the top of the page really sucks. i feel like this website has contiually gotten more cluttered with ads as i've been coming here, but this is ugly and silly. surely you can come up with something less intrusive than "DON'T BE A FATTY" plastered across the top of your website.

this makes me want to stop using the site. seriously.

worse yet, apparently you guys can't even fill the ad spaces you had already. what's the deal?

I don't really care about the ads. If you don't want to see them, just scroll down the page and it magically disappears

I like smiley faces

Not much to say really.

Ads pay for the site to exist. We're pretty non-intrusive compared to most sites. If you don't like this particular ad, come back next week.

edit: and we ask our readers not to block ads or encourage ad blocking.

At least the ads are for iphone apps and not some annoying animated classmates or "win a free ipod" or "what's your IQ". I definitely look at the game ads, it shows what developer is serious about their product enough. There's also no flash!!

So we are reviewing the apps right, not the ads? I always not wanted to be a fatty. Therefore the ad worked!

MacBookPro 17" 2.33, 23" LCD, Ipod Touch 1st Gen- JB'd, Iphone 3g - not JB'd----yet.

Ads are great on this site as they're very relevant to target audience. Sometimes something catches my eye that I previously overlooked.

Would you please fund the site every month so it can be ad free? This thread really sucks! Please, next time you are bored and decide to whine about how you don't like the site you chose to visit, at least search for previous threads dealing with the exact content that you are on about, so you aren't cluttering the site even more!

Oh, and since you aren't going to fund TA, the "clutter" will be staying.....ah, silly me, where are my manners? Good-bye to you. Go visit any other website that is free to you and I'll bet they have advertisments.

I'm all for freedom of choice, you say "This makes me want to stop using the site.", like Nike; Just Do It. Seriously!!!!!!
