Suggestion: Ad-free experience for supporting members

Though I've barely posted here I've found this site really informative, and I greatly appreciate it. However I personally find the advertisements are so off-putting that despite the excellent content and atmosphere I'm finding I don't tend to stick around longer than necessary to get the answers I need. It looks like there's a great community here and I would like to be a part of it, but for me the ads genuinely hinder my participation.

As a solution, many forums who run advertisements offer their members the option of a paid "premium" membership that is ad-free. In this way the forum remains supported while individuals who find the ads too intrusive have a way to opt out of them and still enjoy the forum.

There is, of course, no obligation to change anything, especially considering that I'm a newbie and likely the odd one out. But I figured I'd mention it in case it was helpful.

Thanks again for the great site!

I am slightly baffled by your post. The forum only shows you ads if you're reading it as a guest. It's ad-free if you're logged in as a member.

I'm still getting ads, and I'm clearly logged in... hmm.

Edit: screenshot attached. One banner ad on top and one just below the post.

Could have something to do with your cache... Try emptying it and try again.

Cache cleared; no change.

It isn't a big deal - I can still manage to use the forums, just not as much as it'd be fun to.

Use AdBlock, I never see an Ad.

Maybe, but that's not the point. The fact that she is seeing ads even though she is logged in means there is something wrong somewhere. Better to find out what's wrong and to fix it than to brush the problem aside.

AdBlockPlus with FireFox is your friend. I don't get advertisements that way.

Hey hey, whadayaknow, I'm (naturally) ad-free now! Looks like my application to "premium membership was accepted!!!

Thanks for the suggestions, guys. Looks like an ad blocker would make my life a lot easier. I'll look into it.

Maybe it is like other things that require x number of posts before kicking in.

I think the restrictions disappear after two weeks and 10 posts. Something like that, anyway.
