More banner ads

I've noticed more banner ads in the forums lately. One of the nice things about the TC forums has been how clean they are. I know there are a lot of costs to running the site. My membership dues are on their way. I encourage more to become paying members to help keep the ads down...at least I hope we won't be seeing more of this clutter.

Re: More banner ads

Hi Dave. There is no increase in quite awhile. I'm trying to limit the sponsors as to quality and quantity.
BUT
Yes, non members do see a banner on the bottom of the page and I think you are correct, something changed with them as they were supposed to be links to more information about the topic and I see they are now "ads" instead.
(yes, admins see the banners as well, it's only fair)

Will look into it.

Re: More banner ads

OK, I found the code and changed it to show "related text links" (like we used to) instead of letting them slip in some blinking banners. Will see how that goes.

Thanks for renewing your membership Dave. Much appreciated! Guess you won't even see these changes now

Re: More banner ads

Al,
i guess it was because i let my membership lapse that i started seeing more ads. Another good reason for people to become paid members.

Thanks again for the great site.
