Ads. FAO Mods

Post by Irish Ian »

Once I log in and try to open a new topic I see an advertisement.

Thought these had been removed for contributers.

Its happening to me as well Ian. The small ad across the top of the page is now full page when I change topic. A tad annoying....

Google ads is set to run ‘experiments’ which means sometimes new ads types are enabled and the views/clicks compared.

Seems this particular type avoids the code I put in lace to disable for contributors. I’ll look into it.

To pay the site running costs; domains, hosting, software etc.

We have given away tickets in the past.
