Users may have noticed that our long standing relationship with J-List came to an end recently, with their familiar leaderboard and vertical banners being removed a few days ago. The separation was mutual, and we wish Peter the best of luck with his business. We look forward to forming relationships with new companies to fill our ad inventory with brands and products relevant to our users. Ads are important to 4chan, but the users will always be placed first. I understand that the average college student browsing /a/ is not interested in punching the monkey to win a free <insert-gimmick-product-here>, just as those who browse /ck/ aren't interested in refinancing their home. Unfortunately, untargetted ads are the price we've paid for using what I refer to as "big-box ad networks" over the years. I am making a concentrated effort to transition our inventory to direct ad sales, whereby we can more easily select sites that we know our users will be interested in doing business with. We ask that you bear with us here, and support our move. Ads will return shortly, as we begin to populate the positions with new advertisers. Please consider supporting the site by unblocking ads and visiting our sponsors, because they play a large role in keeping this behemoth afloat.
Aww...I liked the j-list banner.
