We have completed our review of this ad format and heard your feedback and the In Text advertising has been discontinued.

Thank you for your feedback on this.

I just wanted to thank everyone that sent in their thoughts and suggestions regarding the new Vibrant Media contextual ads.

We ran an experiment to see if it was going to be a non-invasive and helpful method of advertising. The feedback from all of you was extremely userful, and as a direct response to your suggestions, we have removed all contextual ads.

Thank you again for your feedback.

On another note, some of you have posted regarding using ad blocking technology to block all ads on cakecentral.com. While this is entirely up to you, I have provided a link to a really insightful article about how ad blocking is devastating to the websites you love.

Thanks for listening to the feedback and removing the ads!

I've seen other forums insert ads at the bottom of posts in a separate area clearly designated as a paid advertisement (based on text mining the content of the post), I would have no problem with this kind of advertising since it doesn't modify posts directly and won't be attributable to the author of the post.

It doesn't bother me, I am grateful that they run this site, if they need to make money to keep it runing its o.k. with me.

Thank you for your response. It is greatly appreciated. Perhaps the suggestion by jason_kraft could be implemented to generate ad revenue for the site? I wish you success in identifying an ad format that will generate sufficient revenue to enable the continued success of CC.
