Quite ironic that a post moaning about advertising has got to more pages much quicker than most of the actual topics!

I thought you were on holiday anyway?

Not exactly a holiday, more an escape from the freezing weather!   Have  free IT facilities so making use of them.    $good$

Does this mean lots of Portuguese quiz questions on the way soon?  :laugh:

That question attracts a most definite "NO!"   Some Zambian one maybe!  ZXZ

No, what I am saying is that if we must contribute, which is OK with me, it should be on a level playing field where we ALL contribute, and not a system that has been decided on the hoof which favours those who have been members for a long time.  IF we had been given some information BEFORE the adverts and green things appeared, we would not be having this conversation.  It seems that today three of you have come up with different ideas regarding the adverts/green things, it should have been sorted before, not on the live board.   I will be happy to pay whatever it costs, but it should be everyone who pays.  I think whatever route you choose, it will, in the long term result in fewer members on the forum.  Additionally, what is annoying is the fact that in the vast majority of cases the green words appear at random and have little or no relevance to the adverts attached to the link.  Some posts have none, while other posts containing the same words, are riddled with them.
But I'm afraid 99% of our 550+ membership will never contribute financially. That's a fact. Craig Ollerton used to have a PayPal Donate button on here back in the 'Llandudno Local' days - he told me that he never received a single donation through it...

I'm a member of many Forums but don't pay to be a member of any of them. Most of them have adverts, including inline ones. To be honest, I don't even notice they are there. I think most people realise that viewing adverts is a valid substitute for any sort of membership fee. All websites have domain and hosting costs that must be paid for, one way or the other.

Anyone can become 'ad free' by contributing on a regular basis - it really doesn't take that long. The people who already have 250+ posts are the ones that we must thank for this Forum being here at all - they were here at the start and helped to build it up. They've earned it, in my opinion...and anyone can join their ranks. It's not a closed shop!

So..to summarise...members can opt to view the adverts, contribute 5 to have them removed early or contribute to the Forum by means of regular posting and have them removed that way.

I have 470 posts shouldn't I be an ad free member by now?  :rage:

I shall have him summoned to a special meeting of the Forum Executive Committee for a dressing down. In the meantime, you now have Ad Free status.  Z**
