|Daveinet||What ads? Haven't seen a pop up ad in years. Firefox and adblock plus. There are ads on the side bars, which is fine, but nothing interfering.|

Yeah the issue of traffic and whether or not SailNet is what it once was is an interesting topic.
Reality is that SailNet traffic has steadily increased over time albeit with the occasional blip downwards. A comparison of traffic between the major international sailing forums shows that the numbers in comparison to Sailing Anarchy, Cruisers Forums, YBW and SailNet have shown an upward trend for SailNet this calendar year of around 35%. YBW is currently running at number one followed by SailNet, Cruisers Forum and then Sailing Anarchy.
That said the difference between the four is minute in real terms and can change markedly over any quarter. SA e.g. received a big fillip during the AC and is down since, SN has had a big increase this year but is down the last seven days.
Like all forums SailNet ultimately lives and breathes from the input of the posters. If we have some vibrant well attended threads (PCP's wonderful 'Interesting Sailboats' thread is a perfect example) then we thrive. Enter a boring phase and the post count dives. Such it is.
Its also fair to say that quantity does not imply quality, that is far more subjective.

So it's all good.

That is why a lot of folks don't bother coming here much these days.
Too bad too as I do like some of the discussions.

SN, guys, you've got to be kidding me. This cursor-sticky ad WITH EACH NEW PAGE is freakin' ridiculous. Just when it seems you guys have worked out all the previous bugs with the ads, you throw this wank on us?
I've not used Ad-Block to this point...but this new AdBull is beyond annoying.
Kill it. Please.

|arf145||Have been experiencing the same problem as mxtommy--was having difficulty even posting here. Pointed them to nowhere in my hosts (thanks MX) and now look to be good. Ads shouldn't use over half your processor--Furono needs to be spanked.|
