    I am trying different ad networks at this time. however the basic core will stay.

    Guests and non supporters see the ads
    Supporters do not
    non supporters and guests will receive a popup asking to disable adblock.

    why is the shed forced to display ads?

    I am not one to complain but we have lost for whatever reason many many monthly supporters.
    At this time we have a total of 25 monthly supporters on the recurring plan.

    It's either ads or close. :)

    Non supporters and guests will also see a second post ad on every thread.

    What's the big deal with ads? If anything, it was past time.

    ADS are fine.

    Use Ads on the site. I don't care. I'm a supporter, I'm OK with seeing the Ads.

    The majority of people here want to see what is BEST for you, Dawg. Whatever makes this a better site for you, I support you. And I imagine quite a few other people feel quite the same.

    You are not your typical board owner/admin. You're one of the best, so whatever makes this easier and cost effective for you, then please, do it.

    Your pal, Dave. :hw:

    When the site changed and I re-uped , It only has Non-Recurring for monthly supportership (I like to do monthly because it's a steady pay check for the site) , So I re-uped with the 6 month.
