    With respect to the vendors and yourself...that's my point. It's taken me all this time to realise that I don't need all that stuff.

    Many people are happy with the ads...it's just that I'm not. My choice. Not suggesting anyone else turns them off unless they choose to.

    I am delighted to find that by donating I can make that choice. Viva La HF! and Viva La Vendors!

    Like a profit? I'm fairly sure every penny goes to keeping this forum going and keeping the free parts free and the donating parts cheap. If someone is making money on this more power to them. We all profit from being here, my pay off has been great info and new friends. Worth every penny and them some.
    Just my opinion.

    That's what I'd thought.

    How to turn off ads?

    Can anyone please tell me how do donating members turn off the ads here on HF?

    I found the 'Turn of the ads' box in the User CP. I typed 'yes' in the blank space but the ads keep coming.

    Am I missing something?

    This should work:

    Step 1. Stop using Internet Explorer
    Step 2. Install Chrome or Firefox
    Step 3. Install an ad block extension
    Step 4. Enjoy the internets without ads


    / On a serious note, I didn't know there was an option.

    The easiest way is to follow the directions here.

    BTW, I merged your second thread with this one, given that they are about exactly the same thing.

    Just my opinion.
    If you take all the donating members and multiply by 10 Im sure you cover the costs of running the forum... Add in advertising and I would be surprised if no one made a profit.

    Not that there is anything wrong with that... And I am sure no one quit their day job, but other then forum software subscriptions and bandwidth for the images hosted here I don't think there are a ton of costs, and there are a fair number of 10 dollar bills coming (at least I hope)
