Support Airliners.net - become a First Class Member!

I felt it appropriate to post here just to bring to the attention of photographers who may be First Class members that there has been a change to the site. This has also been discussed in Site related, but I feel is worth raising here so photographers are aware.

When you open up a photo to look at it, it is now surrounded by three banner ads - one above and two large ones either side. Without exception (so far for me) the side ads are very colourful and completely distracting to the viewer. Sometimes the content is moving too. It's a personal thing, but I feel this seriously degrades the quality of the site - and I speak here as a viewer and a photographer who hopes other people will be viewing my images. I am very disappointed that the experience has shifted to one now where the aircraft photo seems secondary to the adverts - not the other way round as it should surely be.

Ad blockers and First Class membership will preserve you from this, but you may also feel unhappy that the viewing environment for your images has changed in this way. I understand the realities of the world, and the need for revenue. I also understand I have it in my power to do something about this should I choose - but I just feel it is a sad development for a site that I value for its quality - and that includes the quality of the presentation.

I needed a friend's help here, because it is still not possible to post using an image hosted in your profile.

This is the most egregious of the two. It's really ridiculous. OK, my monitor is big enough, I can deal with the ads on the sides in the large one, but really. On the medium one it's just ridiculous.

Talk about trying to kill the goose that laid the golden egg.

I totally agree, for me this isn't acceptable. Banner on top is ok, but the side banners are just killing the image. I'm not going to threaten that I'll remove my images etc (not that DM would care with my numbers....), but this is another item since DM took over that does make me think about the position of a.net in regards to my photography.

I am not concerned about comparing A.net with any other sites - I simply want to be proud to have my photos hosted here. I look at my Ryanair shot above and simply want to remove it - it is just so unpleasant. As I said over at Site Related, it feels akin to hanging your own painting on a wall full of garish graffiti.

If only I had done a screen shot of another photo - then it would have had a well known scantily clad model advertising a shop dominating the page. What chance for some people to focus their attention on my photo given that competition (and it is so ironic given the debates of old about the portrayal of women in photos on this site  banghead  ).

Thanks for bringing this up Paul!
I can't but fully agree with you!
Revenue is certainly required to keep the site running and earn DM some money but if it's done at the cost of the site's viewing pleasure (and the mentionned ads do exactly that) it is not acceptable.
Back to the drawing board guys and come up with something smarter!

Seriously - I remember when I first saw that photo and thought it was amazing and it still is, but now if I saw it with them ads around I would just close it straight away.

If this is what Anet is going to do, it will go down the shitter - or another decent aviation site will start and it will attract all the customers away from here as they don't fill their pages with crap like that.

Demand media - you know adverts dont work well, not them types anyway on here - why not do what Johan was starting to do and use the Google adsense? atleast people didn't mind seeing that as much because it was relevant!

Like I care about looking at a "keep oceans clean" website if I'm looking at a picture of a plane (note I intentionally looked at the advert for the purpose of this, didn't "attract" me)

For a long long time, photographer-uploaders and photo-viewers have had a free ride at a.net - no charges to upload, no onus on photographers to share revenue from commercial photo sales initiated through the site (other than print sales), no charges to view pictures. Quite simply, the model is not sustainable in the long term, particularly when the size and useage of a site extends beyond the resources of enthusiasts and moves into the commercial domain. Now that a.net/DM have real employees running it who need to be paid, where does a realistic and reliable revenue stream come from? Sure a.net doesn't look as good as it did, but where's the alternative - charge for photo uploads/hosting maybe, and how many photographers would bitch about that? Disgruntled photographers may move away, but sooner or later those other sites reach a critical mass where the same challenges that a.net is now addressing will face those sites too. We may now need to accept that the days of the free ride are coming to a close - whether the right solution is more ads, or subscription/hosting fees, or something else, is a more relevent debate.

This is just a lame attempt to make more cash with the site. They throw in more adds which generates more revenue, and at the same time are trying to "force" more of us into first class membership. What a joke, and just now when confidence was starting to rise again.

Hello Andy.

Your points are very valid, and I welcome their addition to this debate. The issue of financing such a large venture is a taxing one.

But equally you could argue that not only have photographers had a' free ride'; so too has the site, being fed as it is by some of the world's best aviation photographers for free. These people have - in return for their free material - been provided with a quality, respected host. It is the classic 'symbiotic' relationship. That is the issue for me - hosting aviation photography. Now if the photos take second place to the ads that support the site's existence, then it seems to me we reach a point where that whole purpose is called into question.

A.net has prided itself on its high quality - in terms of photographic requirements, presentation etc. Screens such as those presented by Steve and me above just don't sit comfortably for me with anything to do with a quality product. That is fundamentally what distresses me about all this - it is so not what 'quality' looks like.
