    Spammers don't pay, ads do. The ad in the top post is a testing thing and the time to see if it's even worth it is almost here. I may be able to look into making the thank you membership include a feature of no ads, but the cost of the thank you membership basically covers the use of HDD and bandwidth for the extra features... but I will definitely look into it.
    Thanks for the input.

    Every 2nd to 4th post on every page including my posts have ads in them now, on the right side. Bin here since 2005, and probably will not stick around if they continue. Very annoying!!!

    Should be top post and bottom post- not every 2-4 posts, unless there are only that few posts on the page.

    Sad thing is, even with these ads, I'm still not utilizing even close to how many I'm "allowed". Like I said, this is a test, hang in there... not all will remain, but to get correct numbers they must run side by side... I've always done this, change ads in pairs, to see what works then narrow it down- I've even done it before in this same configuration but before some things changed with how google paid- I did not get any complaints that time though.

    Last post ad has been removed.


    I'm curious.... What price would you all find fair to remove all the ads (except anything to do with TerraForums and flytrapshop of course, like the calendar banner.. and links to flytrapshop etc. Basically the google ads.) ?

    Andrew,

    I know that the proceeds from these ads go to you, and you totally deserve it, but they are a bit annoying. I don't think I would mind them if they were not in the posts, but I don't really like the way they are laid out now.

    On a totally unrelated matter--whenever I try to login I get this:

    I am logged in on just press on the home logo to get in, but it might be an issue for others.
    BTW im on safari 6.0.2

    Biozest, please try again and PM me if it is still messing up. Thanks!

    Also, what URL are you using to login from? (if still a problem)

    What ads no, I don't block them, I've just learned to ignore them to the point that I actually had to go and look for them. Ah ha, now I can see them. Must come from years of using sites with ads and learning to "not see' them. We must all just learn to focus on the posts and pay no attention to that little ad behind the curtain.

    So the ads in the thread were the only ones being complained about here? I realize two was too much but had to do the test, the top way out preformed the bottom and to be honest we need one somewhere to make up for forum costs at this point (new server upgrade :-\) I'll try it with that ad set to only unregistered/not logged in people and see how it goes...

    I'd still like to hear opinions on ad-free though... a per month/3 month/6 month/yearly whatever plan you guys would like to see and what you think is fair...

    Thanks,
    Andrew
