Everybody enjoys the reports from individuals and from the various Charter Captains. Some of the Captains are borderline on spam as they are constantly posting blatant advertising for their boats. I feel if they want to advertise then buy some space. For the Sniffer to continually let these guys hype their inflated catches all day , every day , just ain't right.

JMHO >:(

We work very hard to make sure that isn't happening. If you see a guide hyping his business on the boards you could send a link to me via PM and I'll be sure to have the Admins address it directly with the poster. Please remember that guides being helpful to the Sniffer community is different then someone just posting fish numbers.

Thanks,

Speaking of advertising...Google Ads? I know business is business but my personal opinion has always been Google Ads are a bit on the tacky side.

All Fish- I'm not seeing any advertisement that looks like part of Google's ad program. Did I miss something??

It's located in the banner ads at the left side of the board.

Interesting. There are definitely no Google ads being served to the pages I am viewing. Just the normal Sniffer ads

Is the ad at the top of the main page jacked up? On my screen it looks like it belongs in the left margin but is showing up at the top, in the middle and screwing up the header.

I believe it's one of those new 3D overlay ads. It's supposed to be on top of the header.

I guess bottomline, I don't like it. ;D

I think it goes to the left in the black box under the Sniffer logo ::) When I first saw it I thought new advertisers were going to be put there to be introduced :-/ It bothers me too Dave ::)

It could just be a page layout error.

But the overlay add at the top sure is ugly. Not the add necessarily. Just the way it's positioned on the page.
