Thanks for catching the mistake. I'll have it fixed shortly.

The ad should be pointing to the overclocking forum or the guides forum, that contains member-written guides. Now, we could be more "politically correct" and say "Check our our community-written guides and join our discussions", but GoogleAds has very restrictive space. Especially for other ad formats, like the skyscraper (thin and tall ads).


And since we're on the topic, you misspelled thier ;)

I'm afraid Google flash ads only come with a few templates. And you can't alter the background color/image. :|

Google templates for ads. We don't have any control over them. Hopefully they will give us more control later.

The one I used to see was based on our forum colors. It featured our logo and that was it. I remember seeing it on PCPer a while ago.

Sorry rk I found another one...or maybe the same one. Google ads seem a bit limiting I guess.
