I totally agree. Unfortunately, due to the Google TOS, I'm not sure I can do that. Theoretically, I'm not allowed to modify the code at all. I will definitely be looking into it, though.

Correct. That doesn't make it legally possible, however.

hmmm... It should work - the referrer address would still be listed in the link code, so no real harm done if you add it.

You could probably add a JavaScript or PHP to wrap it in some kind of "new window" code (for the link, or as some kind of "new window" for the forums).

Just a thought...

I actually think it's a bit crowded, but wouldn't mind sticking it... say.... under that list of sh!t I can and can't do on the right of the Quick Reply....

Yeah when I get around to it I'll remove them.

Hmm, what if you make the google ad open in the current window - but make the Mazda3forums open up on a new window (basically backwards from what was suggested). If you had a

Code:
<body onload = "window.focus();">
in your M3F code, then your new popup would end up remaining the active window

That is, unless google made their ad pages do a window.focus(); as well - where then I just wouldn't know what would happen.

Anyway, this is assuming you have any control over the HTML that is used to render the Google ads.
