I have been scorned with the shameful mark of the jonas brothers! apparently adsense decided that it would be funny to plaster my page with the images of bad boy bands produced by the Disney channel. I know that my user name is mynameisjonas, but still, how could they?!?!?!?!?!? help instructables robot!

They are a pop boy band spawned from the Disney music machine. You can check out their music on youtube. Appeals to similar pre-teen - teens demographics as Hannah Montana, Icarly, High School Musical, etc... Seems they are getting old and trying to do more serious music.

I'm not a huge fan of Instructables' ad system. If it wasn't for the fact that it keeps the HQ running and the staff fed I'd say something

We're working on getting better ads! In the meantime, if you're bothered, there's always adblock.

Adblock has been making my Instructables experience more enjoyable for some time now, so I don't mind. I'd rather have you guys working hard on cool projects than getting better ads!

Second, better AD's might mean they get more money. Although, they need money to make some cool stuff...

yeah. I think that they should have personalized advertisements, ones that are based on your instructable viewing history.

I've turned off adblock for instructables...I don't want to take away from your revenue. Are instructables ads based on clicks or page impressions?

I've been on a secret government funded mission to bring the Mojave Antelope Federation to justice. Actually I've been dedicating my time to school and other things. All sorts of stuff happened and I wasn't able to be as active as I liked. It's all good now though, I'm (hopefully) back for a while.

David Icke is part of British culture - he used to be a respected sportsman and sports commentator. He had a promising career in politics with the Green Party, then he went a little... odd.

Well, they generate ads based on the topic of the page. If its a mac mod ible, there will be an ad for a retail mac. same applies for forums and members.
