But some of our members don't want them there, like if they're connecting from work. The purpose of the "decorations" down there is to be a little reward for making it all the way to the bottom of a page. Notice how they're strategically positioned on either side of the ads? To look at them both your eyes will naturally travel over the ads, might be something interesting there, you might click on one, and we'd get $0.10 or so that goes towards the costs of hosting and maintaining this site.

That's probably not as effective for the female members here, so I turn off the decorations for them, if I can guess from their username that they [i]are[/i] female, or they send we a message asking me to do it. That topic is locked in place at the top so that it can always be found, especially by new members.

Participation deterant

Oh, it's effective for women- for alienating them, that is. I just loved convincing my wife to come here to ask flying related questions because, as I said, 'the OZ Report is frequented by a number of highly experienced and diverse pilots that could help'- only then to have to convince her that she wouldn't be objectified, that she would be given the respect accorded to any other pilot... that the members aren't just the leering perverts with one hand on the keyboard they appear to be...

That's fucked up; the last thing our sport needs is to deter female participation: and that is exactly what the pin-ups do.

Girls, Groins and Google ads…

As a female, I am not offended by the presence of the scantily clad chicks...but at the lack of sexxxy scantily clad dudes...Come on...even it out! Toss us a boner...er. bone.

Agree 100%. I'd be happy to provide sample photos.
