    Banner Ads

    Something changed yesterday.

    In my options I have ads turned off, but starting yesterday I am seeing them when in Forums, New Posts, Today's Posts, Hammock Articles and Videos. I don't see them in Home or User CP.

    Before yesterday I never saw ads anywhere.

    Is it me or the site?


    Thanks,
    Jerry

    I've always seen ads just to the right of the HF logo at the top of the page (usually cottage industry, WB, JRB, Whoopie etc.) but they scroll with the page as you read down the forums. I never had an issue with them like some other sites since they weren't annoying or overpowering.

    Thanks for the reply. That's where I'm seeing the ads. It's not really an issue of the ads themselves, it's that something on the website has changed. In Options, "off" should turn them all off(it used to).

    I guess this thread was more a way of alerting the mods/site admin that something may have happened to some site settings.

    I'm hoping that Jason or Sam will chime in soon. We will research it. Thanks.

    Jerry, it looks like your Donating Member status ended yesterday and that's when the ads turned back on for your account. attroll originally set it up so that DM's can disable the banners.

    Well that explains it then. I didn't even notice that my status changed, no e-mail or other warning.

    Thanks Sam. You can close this thread if you like.

    For what it's worth, the only ads shown on this site are from cottage vendors who participate here.
