    Well fuck.

    Project Wonderful is closing its doors after 12 years of serving ads to comics and other fan sites...including ours.

    Fortunately, our site is mainly supported by authors, but it's another long term site that is vanishing.

    We've had channelawesome.com, etiquetthell.com and now this.

    Makes you wonder who is next...?!

    I am really annoyed about this closure. They were one of the few ad systems that supplied ads appropriate to the site, rather than trying to follow users via tracking cookies and guess what they wanted to see.

    Is this going to be a problem for the site, 'cos I really don't like google ads:mad:.

    But I've seen those ads everywhere, I wonder what they were doing wrong if they are having to close down.

    Or is it the owners deciding to shut down because its no fun any more and they have made their money from it.

    No idea what the next large scale site will be, so far this year it has been a shock. It's like 2016 all over again, only for websites instead of celebrities.
