Too much adverts
« on: September 29, 2013, 03:37:23 pm »
What's with the new advertising banner at the bottom of each thread  ???

I love how on CC Neil has been able to choose which sorts of adverts are shown - more discrete ones... There's no such option here, and many of these are distracting as they move  :(

Oh well, the problems of not using Firefox or Chrome with Adblock Plus installed  ::)

With the other forum I cannot choose what are in the adverts, but there are a few options as to the style of advert shown, and with a bit of tailoring where they are shown.

I am running a block plugin on my browser at home and so I didn't notice them to you pointed them out and I turned off to see. At work I have no control over what plugins or extra software I can use on my PC and so I have adds there. I have got use to them on sites I visit. Yes it would be nice to have no adds, but there is little in life that is completely free, and the hosting sites need to pay their way somehow.

Very true. I suppose that they're operating so many forums now, they had to add more adverts in order to cover the costs.
