Warning – under construction for a few weeks… Sorry for all the ads. Should be better now.

OK, as many of you have noticed, and some of you have complained to me – whether in person or email – the WordPress ads have become increasingly intrusive… Much more so in the past 60 days or so.

The ads are part of the free WordPress account which the Opinionated Gamers USED to use.  We do not generate any income from the ads; but we had to accept them in return for the free site.

As of today – and at least for the next 2 years, the Opinionated Gamers has upgraded their account at WordPress – and this should eliminate the ads.   

It also opens up a number of new themes and widgets that we can use – and I will ask you to bear with us as we try them out.  There really isn’t a playground to work on the themes, so as I have time, I will essentially install a theme and see how it goes for the next 1-2 days.

The content won’t change.  We’re still gonna be posting reviews of Essen games, interviewing folks from the industry, and writing up SPIEL recaps than have no mention of the actual games shown at the fair — but how the site looks will be different at times.

Thanks for reading this, and thanks for reading our blog.  Hopefully these changes improve your experience here at the Opinionated Gamers.

    I wish you luck – I’ve been considering doing the same… annoying as it is, I’ve noticed that even my bloody email account(s) with Google and the like now have ads appearing at the top which is really p***ing me off…
