    Phoronix: Win $500 USD From Phoronix, Take Our Survey

    IDG TechNetwork, our advertising partner for Phoronix, is running a site survey for us where you can win $500 USD. This survey should just take a matter of minutes and asks about your reading habits on Phoronix, what you would like to see, your job roles, how you interact with advertisements, etc. The results of this survey are used by IDG to help pull in new -- and relevant -- advertisers on Phoronix...

      Yeah... You should mention that this is US/Canada only on the news post right away, it's not very fair to bury this (I went to see the rules exactly because I expected it to be this way, unfortunately...).

        I didn't know this myself, but will update the post.

          I agree, it's unfortunate. I don't think my (and anyone else') clicks on the adverts are less worth then those from US or Canada.

            When I make purchasing decisions, I don't look to little annoying .gif files on web pages, I look at reviews, benchmarks, and whether or not the vendor pisses me off.

            There were some questions they should have asked in that survey that they did not.

              Yeah, it seemed to equate more ads with more sales

              I use adblock, so even though I'm outside the US I took the survey to make up for all the ads I miss

                Or you could just whitelist Phoronix.com in AdBlock

                  Exactly, there is no good reason for "US & Canada" only. When I see these things, I'm glad to say THANKS to the adblock plugin author.

                    Adblock

                    I'm using AdBlock too. I hoped that in the survey I could say phoronix really sucks without AdBlock, but of course, no such option, so I decided to not submit the survey either.

                    There are lots of technological sites that don't have the stupid annoying ads phoronix has. I still like the articles on phoronix, but that's really it. So if phoronix will mess up article content too, I guess there's not much here for people to go to anymore.
                    Regards,

                    Michael
