In an effort to satisfy two loyal groups, made separate decisions today, one affecting its advertisers, the other, its readers. is a popular technology news discussion site, which garners 45 million page views per month and 2.5 million unique visitors.

First, will now accept new, larger advertising formats. The site noted that advertisers have come to rely on these formats as the norm and thus, is expected to offer them as well.

However, to hamper criticism from its community of readers, is now also giving visitors the opportunity to pay a minimal fee to view the site without seeing advertisements. The service is optional and other content will not be affected by a visitor's choice to view with or without ads.

Rather than charging a monthly or annual fee, will charge a $5 fee for each one thousand page views. projects that 10 percent of its readers will take advantage of the no-ad option.

"Readers have asked for enhanced offerings such as this, so they won't mind paying a small fee," said Jeff Bates, director at OSDN Online and executive editor at, adding that "the small percentage of readers who are expected to sign up for the service are likely not influenced by ads, so advertisers won't feel the hit."
