I recommend that everyone go and compulsively refresh the PPG main page so you can see all the new ads.

I will give a *free item from the PPG Gear Shop to anyone who can identify all the names (without looking at the url names, and without already being in the know).

In a vaguely-related vein, I've put Google ads on the main site front page, because I was oh so curious as to what the fine automated folks at Google would serve up. Mostly I've seen what you'd expect (BG and Everquest ads) but the Kelsey page had an ad for a "real psychic" offering "real love spells"... so, yeah. :)

It's highly experimental, I'm not at all sure I'll keep it there, but, full disclosure and all. If I do keep it up I'll distribute the money the same way I have for the gear.

Yeah, actually, I took it down already, but it'll probably go back up in a day or two.

When will we roll out the porn pop-ups?  I want to find singles in my area!  Ones in pink bikinis and cowboy hats.  (Thank you, Telefragged!)

I don't think ever. Do you think it would help the site's overall image?

It would help me stare at women in pink bikinis that wear cowboy hats (which is apparently what women in Alberta do).

She really gets around. They told me she lived in Illinois and Wisconsin, too.

(but I can more easily believe Alberta, because, cowboy hat.)

Just thought I'd share with everyone...

I came up with a bumper sticker idea a few days ago: I Brake For LT46

I'm working on three Iron Modder t-shirts, two being Iron Chef spoofs. One has the Japanese kanji for Iron Modifier behind the words Iron Chef and the other has the Iron Chef herald done in PPG colors. The third's gonna take some work but I think it would be a nifty idea if it got off the ground. It's a spoof of my friend's favorite shirt: Iron Modder World Tour, PocketPlane.net, and on the back would be dates of Iron Modder and the countries the modders hailed from. (Wouldn't give names or anything, just countries, maybe states.) I'd have examples of these as well but the images are a pain in the butt to find.

Thoughts?

Pirengle- truly fabulous ideas. The bumper sticker should be a T-shirt.

I shouldn't take all the credit. Jason mentioned LT46 to fill in the "I Brake For" blank. Some other people suggested stuff too.

There should be more in-jokes we can stick on stickers.

Anyway, having set up a separate account I have placed the two-box banner back on the PPG main site.

Please let me know the funniest ad you see come through. Thus far my favorite is getting the psychic offering "real love spells" on the Kelsey page.

And Pirengle, yeah, if you want to provide full-res workups of those products, I'll gleefully put them up.
