I'm pretty sure australian-charts.com is part of the same network as hitparade.de, charts.org.nz, and etc. In that aspect, with respect I hope to bring attention to the awful mess that dutchcharts.nl has become.
Coming from a dutch family, I often use dutchcharts.nl for researching older dutch hits. In the past, it's been a really good resource, but unfortunately the advertising and spam on the site has made the site unusable. Been there today, and my antivirus had blocked three suspicious objects. Can't even read the older charts anymore as huge page size pop-ups block the charts, and other browser cholking scripts load other side ads, it's become awful.
I know you guys have to make money like everybody else - no-one is a charity. The New Zealand and Australian sites seem to have striked the right balance between advertising and usability, but dutchcharts.nl has become a complete no go.
Don't know if the head of this site is in touch with the overseas site operators, but hope something please could be done about it. Last edited:
