In an effort to try and further offset the forum costs - I have made changes to the ad spots while trying to give all of the registered users a better experience. Many of you have seen "Sponsored Link" areas on this forum, which will now only be viewed by guests, along with a notification to sign up for an account. To view the difference simply logout, and view the forum, click on posts, etc. I'm sure you'll see the difference. I have also reduced the number of third party ad spots for registered users, with registered users now seeing a minimal number of ads on each page at any given time during your session. In most cases you'll now see just one at the top of the board, and one at the bottom. There will also be a reduction of third party ads in the middle of posts, etc. But you should notice a cleaner and smoother and less "noisy" experience compared to the previous set-up going forward. For those who have donated the ads have now been completely eliminated all together. Hopefully the reduction for normal registered users helps to make your experience here a bit easier compared to previously. The goal was to reward all of our regular registered users and those who donate, so for those visiting the forum - if you would like reduced noise and fewer windows - please simply take a moment to register and you'll see many of those windows disappear once you login.
