In an effort to monetise our operations we’ve signed up with Google Adsense. That is why you’re seeing adverts on DP.
In due course, only 1 advert will appear below the Menu and the ones from the right panel should disappear or be placed at the very bottom.
Any inconvenience is regretted.

We've also placed an "Amazon" link at the very bottom of the Right Panel.
If any of you guys are wanting to search/order anything from Amazon, please use this link. It will generate some revenue for the forum.

I don't have a problem with ads as long as they aren't the "in your face" pop up type that force you to watch a video.  Bills have to be paid and if this helps it is a good thing.

I'm good with it too. I shop Amazon a lot so the link will be well used.

Well, that was interesting. I went through the Amazon link and none of my order/or wish list info comes up... wonder what is up with that?

Well, the link takes you to Amazon, India and we cannot use it.  I'm not sure how that could be set up to work with those of us in the USA.

Ah, that explains it! I didn't notice the ".in". Guess we in the US aren't going to be able to use it...

Doesn’t it ask if you want to connect to “your country’s” amazon site ?

I changed it to US & clicked the link and it did give me the option. I will look into this.

Now I've removed the Amazon links. They were being served over "http" protocols thereby giving a mixed content warning for the site. I checked with Amazon, and they don't have a link for global use. So we'll do away with Amazon for now.

So I have now given the link to amazon.com instead of amazon.in. At the extreme bottom of the Right Panel.

So, click and shop through DP if you like.
