Maybe Aldie and the gang are just really enjoying ToI right now. Maybe there will be a ToI contest?

I personally don't see a problem with it.

I was going to complain about my add-block not working properly

- when I noticed that a new featured has been added to it.
I no lo longer see the add, only the good old geek.

Simply go to
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/profile.php?action=editadblock
and check the bottom box [nav bar/logo]

Wow. Now THAT'S getting ahead of the problem. ninja

Given that he added the feature to the ad-block settings, I think finding more ways to gain non-supporter revenue for the geek is a great idea.

Good job Aldie.

I'm more worried about the fact that the running geek seems to be dressed as a german soldier. I would've guessed that he was an american.

Not at all. I thought it was a sellout when they made the lil' BGG guy look like Santa, and who could forget Thanksgivings sellout? In all seriousness though, I think it's just in response to the fact that what's probably this years most heavily anticipated (and delayed) game is finally here. I'm sure Aldie, much like myself, is super psyched for the impending backlash of complaints of horrendous production quality, boxes that take more than 4 seconds to open, rules ambiguity, shipping delays, and just plain hurt feelings. Bring it on!! We're geared up and ready!

He looks like an American Soldier to me.

See the little potato-masher? That's for subjugating foreign peoples to the will of the Fuhrer! What a cute little member of the master race he is!

Wierd. It only loaded the german version for me many times. Now if I click reload, it seems to alternate.

I think it's because when I log in I mainly load into separate tabs. And every tab had the german version.

That's pretty awesome actually, that there are two versions.

I believe this feature has been around since the Attactix Star Wars Storm Trooper logo. I have had this box checked since that time.

But I did see the ToI logos for a few minutes last night, as Aldie forgot to adblock it. Aldie quickly fixed that after I mentioned it to him in chat. (See another reason to try BGG Chat - Aldie hangs out there sometimes.)

You're right! I do!


I'm off to preemptively give Tide of Iron a rating of 1!

I was pleasantly surprised. I enjoyed the new temporary look and I don't think it is a sell out.

What should be more disturbing is that Aldie likes to play dress up with the running geek...

This isn't privileging - it's a promotion. Anyone can do the same. Just go to the Ad Manager under the Misc. tab.

Right, except this one uses the logo and its privileged position on the page. Tide of Iron thus becomes BGG.


Right...and Star Wars Attactix did it before that...

I think they're pretty cool. As long as it doesn't become a regular occurrence I don't mind them at all. Adds a bit of character to the page.

Sounds like Adblock at work. The logo can be adblocked to display just the non-branded version.

Wow, anyone upset by this should probably just go hide in a cave until Armageddon. How can you be mad about this?

I have a theory about people who use the word sellout....they're jealous. Get over it.

Should we pool our money for a similarly constructed ad for Busen Memo?
