Hello World!

Well, I certainly wasn't expecting to have to type another note like this so shortly after the last one.

Last week, when we added the new Star Trek product advertisements at the end of each news item, I was hoping that that would be enough to weather the internet advertising storm. Unfortunately, this didn't turn out to be the case - information on TrekToday's advertising revenue for the first two months of this year came in this week, and it turned out to be several times lower than what I had estimated in even my worst-case scenarios. In order to increase the site's chances of survival, I've had to take a few actions which many of you probably won't be too happy with:

Again, apologies for having to take these steps. If it were up to me, there would be far fewer advertisements on TrekToday, but unfortunately there doesn't appear to be much choice. We are in the middle of an internet recession, and with costs ever-increasing, making sure advertising revenue doesn't disappear completely is fairly essential - unfortunately I'm not nearly rich enough to be able to support the sites otherwise.

These ads are pretty essential for TrekToday's survival, so I appreciate any attention you give to them, and certainly appreciate you checking out the Star Trek products on offer. Again, of course many thanks go out for all your understanding and support, and in return, we'll try to keep up the quality of the site as much as possible, of course!
