    As you may have noticed, there is now a banner at the bottom of thread pages linking to other threads on the forum, as shown in this screenshot:

    The purpose of this banner is simply to show you other threads on the forum that you might be interested in. It's generated by Google automatically without any human input. This feature was just rolled out by Google, and I am testing it to determine if it's useful to our visitors.

    So what do you guys think? Good/bad/creepy/don't care? For some reason @cmaffia's face is always in the version of the banner that I'm seeing (but I'm not holding it against him).

    I hadn't seen it, but found that it's blocked by my ad blocker add-on. But for me personally, it wouldn't be that helpful since I check messages in the forums I like anyway. Nothing against it either, though.

    And I have a sneaking suspicion that Charlie pays Google to keep his face there.. ;)

    It's a pretty neat feature. It definitely won't hurt your SEO either :)
