    Made live today were a few minor tweaks to the new Phoronix.com site layout and PHXCMS-9 content management system. A few visual bugs were squashed and other small enhancements committed...

        I do get an ad about Adobe Creative Cloud, which I like. However, it's not for Ubuntu and I couldn't get it to work through Wine, so I let the CC trial expire last month. I'm cool with the IBM ad, even though I don't have plans to use their products as it's business-only. Auto insurance? I loathe cars.

        I did get 3 ads in a home page that advertises MongoDB by rackspace but I didn't take a screenshot of it. Not even a drug ad (prescription) that I saw in a home page. I'll keep a watch for it if I'm seeing an inappropriate ad.

          Tbh, I really, really like the new design once I got used to the somewhat bigger font on the desktop. I think it looks clean and nice and still has the "Phoronix touch" now. I am especially happy how it turned out because some of the WIP pictures Michael posted on Twitter just a week or two ago were still a nightmare

            Too bad the forum first post on a page still is very long regardless of message length.

              Do you accept ads that play video? Videos can be a bandwidth hog. They play a video ad and a very short news.

              I didn't get the ad URL as it is too late, but just in case, how do I get the URL of an ad?

                Oh, by the way, once this gets resolved, can the images be removed? I can't edit my post after 5 minutes. Sometimes I want to clean up my web server.

                I really don't like having to scroll down too far only to see the next post. Can't the ad be made horizontal?

                  Please make the width of the grey boxes on the right hand side scale with the font size. Currently, the width of the outer div is set to 380px. I guess it should be around 24em for the default font size.

                    page loads do seem slightly faster.

                          NICE, now if you could only get rid of those pop up adds.

                          Title says it all! Those popups chase away more people than they are worth.

                            Wait... I could've been blocking those ads all this time!? D: Criminey.

                            But really, I only blacklist ads on sites where they wreak havoc on my resources or start shouting at me for no reason. I wish they were more cohesively designed to make them less of an eyesore, but I like to support the websites I visit if I can.

                              To which "pop up" ads are you referring?

                              If it's about actual pop-ups, those are unintended and blocked when reported to me... If it's about the "overlay areas" that appear once per day, those are run for certain geos occasionally. Those are worthwhile as they end up generating over 20x more revenue than a conventional ad and only show for the use once per 24 hours.
