Are there ads you will NOT accept?
Yes! Because this site is viewed by every age group, we can not accept ads that would be seen as offensive. This includes nudity and graphic violence. We have the right to decline any advertisers we choose and the right to terminate a contract should your ads, at any time, fall into this category. While we allow ads created using Flash, we do not allow Flash ads that use up a heavy amount of bandwidth or that have sound that automatically plays. We also do not allow pop-up ads, ads that will block portions of the site from view or ads that cause harm or unwanted information stored on a user's computer.

How is payment handled?
Payment can be arranged using a check or PayPal. Payment must be made before an advertisement is placed on the site. You will receive a Purchase Order in PDF format once a deal is agreed upon. Full payments will not be refunded once the advertisement is active. If you have any questions regarding payment, please contact us.
