Temporary Experiment with Ads on this Wiki

Dopp July 12, 2011 User blog:Dopp

Hi, I'm a member of Wikia's Community Support Team!

Over the next few weeks, we'll be conducting an experiment on this wiki to evaluate a new way of serving advertisements. During this time, text link ads from Google will appear on article pages in additional areas. These ads are meant to be highly targeted and relevant to the content on the page, and we're testing to see if they're better than our current system.

As usual, these ads will NOT display to registered users. Your regular contributors can avoid all ads just by staying logged in. Note that this is also tempoary: we will turn these experimental ads off as soon as we collect enough data to assess their effectiveness (we estimate a total of 2-4 weeks).

Please leave a message below or on my talk page if you have any questions or concerns. If all goes well, we'll have learned about a better method for serving ads that are more relevant to the content on the page. Thanks for helping us to improve Wikia!
