Have you ever clicked on the banner ads at the top of TMK or the Fungi Forums? If so, which ones? I had clicked on them a few times when they first appeared after the move to KonTek, and I will still click on any particularly ridiculous-sounding ads. (Some of them almost remind me of spam that I've gotten.)
Remember that your first Goomba boldly you walk? When Mario touched that mushroom being brought up more largely remember that you are surprised? Miscalculate your jump that pit remember that it falls?

Nope, but that's only because I'm using a layout that doesn't include ads. :P

I occasionally click them because I think it earns TMK more money that way.

I clicked on some of them just for money reasons, but when I was younger and expanding my music library, I followed an ad that was to a small web site that had a bit of game music on it. Not a lot, though. It made me wonder how they ever scrounged up the money to buy an advertisement.

I don't see any ads whatsoever, usually, because of Firefox and an ad-related extension.

Here's an example of what I consider to be a "ridiculous-sounding" ad:

Mario is also the name of a music artist.  This can make eBay searches annoying.

Way back when TMK was on ClassicGaming, I clicked on an ad for a site that happened to be a Pokémon forum. I'm still a member on there, over...3? 4? years later.

Not really. I haven't seen any ads on TMK since I put those URLs in that part of my command line that blocks stuff.

I was seriously not aware that there were ads again.

Just because you can, doesn't mean you should.

I don't care how stupid or irrelevant they are, as long as they keep the site free and fast. And aren't, ya know, adult-oriented.
<Kojinka> When I saw this thread back on top, I was afraid this was gonna be another pointless bump by a new member, but when I saw Super-Jesse's username, my fears were laid to rest.

Wow.  I forgot there were ads.

I sort of feel bad now for not making TMK some money with my clicks...
Today's actually... nobody's birthday!  Quick, hurry up and make a baby!

I clicked on one once.  I believe the site sold Nintendo T'shirts.
