Forum Advertising

Post by Webmaster on Sat Jun 23, 2012 11:48 am

I had an old browser, I upgraded a couple of days ago and began to get a really annoying ad at the bottom of the screen blocking my view till I close it.

Anyone else getting the ad? If so have you had it for long.

I looked into ways of stopping it. This forum is completely free, so forumotion place their ads on it in exchange providing us with it. It's never worried me before, a pretty fair deal I thought. However this new ad is plain annoying. I checked out how to get rid of it, it's not too bad, Forumotion don't expect me to buy the whole the forum instead just sell upgrades, the remove ad upgrade fees for removing them from sight of forum members are just under a quid a month and double that for non-signed in visitors. So if anyone is finding the ads really really annoying I could just about stretch to a tenner a year to remove member ads
and sod visitors too lazy to join. lol!

Let me know what you think.

never had an issue with the adds on this site, apart from when i first joined one kept flashing you have new messages, -

i dont get one at the base of the screen just the one below the navigation buttons, -

if the forum costs i am sure between us we could cover a few £ - i have always thought myself its bad of guests to view but not to join as at the end of the day the job of a forum is to share what you know.

So its my browser then, interesting. As for the money, thanks for the offer but a tenner a year really is no problem for me.

So looks like good time for me to change browsers. Everyone is raving about Tor Browser, guess I'll give it a go.
