How does this mod count?
« on: July 24, 2008, 11:40:09 am »
Hi,

I'm using 3 spots to show ads, towerleft, welcome area and bottom. As far as I know all ads are visible on all non-admin pages. I have 5 ads on all 3 locations. All ads in the towerleft location are show roughly 2.5 times more often than the other ads, so I'm curious if this might be a bug or what might be causing this. If this is not due to a bug, I should probably charge a little more for the ads at this location.

Do you mean that an ad is shown not every time you browse the same forum page ?

No.. I mean if ads are shown by random selection, you have the same amount of ads at each location and each location are visible on the same pages, then statistically all ads should show almost the same amount of times. In my case all vertical ads are shown approx. 2.5 times more often. Since it is all vertical ads that has this issue, this must be a bug or vertical ads are shown more often than e.g. bottom ads. If the last is the case then I don't understand since they should show on the same pages.

if you have multiple ad codes set to appear in the same area,
a function randomly chooses which ad to display

riversen,
how can you evaluate the statistics and amount of the definite page display
(with random selection of the ad in its multiple group..)
to ALL forum Users and Guests browsing the page ?

Do you ground your statistics (~approx. 2.5 times more often~)
on the Ad Management mod Reports ?

I just checked the reports that's all. I've had some google ads running for quite a long time... more than 500.000 displays. Also I just added some new ads. After about 30 mins and later after 2 hours it was the same picture. Vertical ads shows approx. 2.5 more often. I haven't been able to find any pages where the vertical ad is shown without the top and bottom ones.

Not sure what "ground your statistics" meen.

I actually found a bug.

I printet a debug message in the updateAddHits function. Even though I have only 3 ads active I got 4 debug messages. 2 of the debug messages where on vertical ads, so this explains why. I'm still trying to figure out exactly where the bug is.

Could you show us that result?

Including your phpinfo() would be most helpful as well so we can see what server and/or host is causing a bug. It's not always a bug with the modification, nut more as to the server itself.

I've just located the problem. I've just sent a PM to jerm about this a few secs ago.

Why are you sure that Jerm is reading PM ?
Can you create ~Riversen to Jerm~ public gritoadmix
instead of PMing ?

[~Gri to Ccbtimewiz~:]
ccbtimewiz,
A dialogue between ~Ccbtimewiz and Gri~ could begin here. Couldn't it ?
It had began indeed after my reply to you, ccbtimewiz.

But smfads.com forum is not yet adjusted for having dialogues.
Would you like to create ~Ccbtimewiz to Gri~ gritoadmix on my forum
for the arrangement of my further posts addressed to you
concerning Jerm, Ad Management, monkeys' domination on the planet,
                                and any other public issues
                                more or less relevant to Ad Management mod problems.
