Title: An Updated Word From Our Sponsors (PLEASE READ!)
Post by: bayonetbrant on August 16, 2015, 06:29:55 PM
Hey guys -

In addition to our normal advertisers who are graciously helping us keep the lights on with their ad support, we've got a 'new' ad space we've set up right below the first post in each thread.  These ads are reserved for GH-specific promotions, like the GrogHeads Central Command at Origins.

We've got a few new GH-specific ads running there now that link you back to Amazon for military books / tabletop wargames, and we'll be adding a few more to the rotation shortly.

These ads take you to Amazon, and shouldn't show you any different pricing than you'd normally see if you just wandered in the front door.  What these ads do for us, though, is they link anything you purchase on that session back to our affiliate account (not just games or books, but TVs, lawnmowers, and baby formula, too).  Anything that comes back to us through the affiliate account helps us out with expenses here, as well as helping us sock a little away in the bank for a rainy day, or our own game convention, whichever comes first O0

so check 'em out and let us know what you think, and even if you're already planning to go to Amazon for something else, click through our ad links first and that'll hook you up to our affiliate.  Thanks in advance!

Here are the ads :)

I've been doing the smile.amazon.com thing for autism research up to now but I'll split it between that and GH.

Bump -


Just a heads-up, Amazon is threatening to shutter our affiliate account if we don't start registering more sales activity through it.

We're not asking you to buy extra stuff.  We're just asking that if you are going to buy something, click thru from one the links on our site.  It won't cost you anything extra, but it does credit back to us as an affiliate site.

Thanks!

I can't see that it works for me from the UK?

I might have missed something crucial of course - Luddite that I am.

Brant, can you create a GH Amazon redirect link in the Welcome section like you have to redirect to the Mythical Front Page, or maybe a link right on the MFP itself so we don't have to keep finding this thread to order stuff from Amazon?

I'm not lazy (well, uh... actually... ) but often I have to order stuff from my phone with little time to do so (like when I'm at work) and an easier-to-find link would be great.

Please welcome Academy Games to our family of sponsors.

Give 'em a couple of clicks, and make sure you order a copy of their new '1754' game

They're in the rotation. I've seen them periodically throughout the day.

And, just like that, one also popped up on the top page banner space. I've been meaning to see what NWS has these days so there I go...

I need to steer more of my purchases to NWS. Chris Dean is a great guy and runs a great business.

I bought many old games from him. He went the extra mile to find me a complete hard copy of Freespace 2 a million years ago.
