To help support the running costs of Galactic Basic, banner advertisments provided by Google have been added to some parts of the forums, along with affiliate links inserted be VigLink.

We hope they are not obtrusive or inappropriate, but if you have any feedback regarding the content, placement or style of these advertisements please leave your feedback in this thread.

Just wondering...I see the solid color ads are red, can they be changed to blue at all?

They can be changed, I'll see what I can do - don't want them to blend in too much in case they look like part of the site and get clicked by accident. :)

Is there any way to control the content of the ads?  If so, what about making them more in-line with the site's content as opposed random crap like ads for BP.  As fa as ad placement, my only problem is when they are just after the first post.

I'm not sure how much control I have over the content of the ads, I deliberately made the flad after the first post the smallest one possible to have.

Google ads are supposed to bear the page content in mind, but it's not too accurate on forums due to the mixed nature ofthe content. They can also use your previous searches if you're logged in to Google.

I've enabled VigLink, a revenue earning service that inserts relevant links into posts to enable the site to generate income.

It's had generally better reviews than similar services but if it proves to be too much of a nuisance I will disable it.

    • Galactic Basics - A basic guide to the Star Wars universe

      A new feature I would like to get going for GB is a series of basic guides to the Star Wars universe.

      With a new trilogy on the way, there are likely to be new fans looking for an insight to Star Wars that they might not be able to glean simply by watching the films.

      The first guide I'd like to write is about the Force, and give examples of dark and light powers, quotes from characters an other useful tidbits people might find good to know.

      I have a few ideas already but if yo u think of anything that should be included, or ideas for other guides please leave your suggestions below!
