Do you make your own servers? Just curious. I am sure that there are some people on here that could cut you a big break on one. :)

I can't help but think if the shark has a laser from WL it's not going to be all that threatening being underpowered.

If LPF is to remain neutral, then you should have at least two banner ads on the top that actually have prices on their websites- if Wicked Lasers HAS to be here, couldn't you have Opto or something there as well to provide a nice contrast?

Wonder how much coldshadow gets paid per hit from that wickedlasers add...

Knowing wickedlasers it could be 1 USD per hit (cause there rich from there lasers) or 0.0000000000000000000000000000001 cents per hit cause there so cheap.

If it is neutral, then whoever pays the premium to get a banner at the top will get it. Their lasers aren't really all that bad. Have you ever owned one? I thought not.

I feel discussing the formum and its layout is ok, but this thread isn't about that. It is one thing to criticize cOld and his website, it is another thing to criticize cOld and his income! :'(

Here is the response I have gotten from Jack at Optotronics when I contacted him about this matter (read from the bottom up):


Hi Mark,
I'll call Avery when I have some free time, but I expect he's signed a
contract or has an agreement to run those ads for some time, maybe 6
months or a year, who knows, hopefully this isn't the case.
I didn't know he was that desperate for money to do such a thng, if he
would have let me know, I would have run a banner; but I won't run an
ad on any site that also has WL ads as I don't want to associated with
WL in any way.


Thanks

I was contacting you wondering if you would like to talk to c0ldshadow (admin of the forums) about advertising space, because you have very high quality lasers, much more so than Wicked Lasers. I believe that it would divert many new members toward your website, and it would make many of us on the forums very happy to see the WL ad gone and Opto up there in its place.
