    Just wanted to make a quick post about what I am going to do with the Google ads so I don't freak people out. :D
    I found a way to put the ads on the last post in every thread, I also got it to work so they don't show up at all in the Vendor forum and the ORD forum.
    The cool part is that Members/Vendors have the option to turn them on and off when ever they want from their "User CP". :pimp1:
    The ads are related to the subject matter so some Members might want to view them, now they will have a choice. :D
    The default is on so didn't want anyone to freak out on me, I will make a post about how it all works when I finish up with it tonight some time.

    I think it's a great setup, we still have the fewest banner ads for non-members that I have seen on most forums and of course no banners at all for Members.

    Right on. I love not having to look at any banner ads as a member. We need all the ck5 we can get for our "fix" for the day, and ads only take away from that. Keep up the great work Steve!

    I don't care about small banner ads, they don't bother me. Sometimes it's humorous what they find to advertise based on what we are talking about.

    I hate them damn sites with ads right in the middle of what I'm attempting to look at and the only way to get rid of it is to click it! :mad:

    Check out the Firefox extenstion called Adblock. :thumb: Once you set it up for a particular site, it will block 90% of that crapola from ever appearing on your screen. :cool1:

    Check it out here.

    Nice!!! Great Idea to make it an option for members to toggle the ads on or off. And even I didn't have that option, they really dont stand out that much :grin:
