I created Caudata.org in 2001 as a community for people to exchange information, ideas and captive bred newts and salamanders. For over 10 years the site was funded by the donations of its members – thank you!

For the past few years I have funded the site from my own pocket. After consulting with the admins, I’ve decided to implement Google Adsense advertising on the site on a trial basis to see if the site’s traffic will pay for its upkeep.

The Google advertisements will only appear on the forum, at least for the time being.

Thank you.

I think adverts on the net are just a fact of life these days, so much so that they don't really register with me any more. If the adds provide a hassle free way of keeping the site and forum online I think it's a small price to pay in the end, better than no site at all.

I fixed an issue with the menu bar. The dropdown menu options were going behind the top advert. Please continue the feedback!
