    There's another drop down box ad that was disabling the top menu selections. I don't know which one that appeared from, but I think I have a fairly good idea...

    Because the topic I was in was still on page one, I had to find another way to change to a new topic in order to Log Out.

    If you look down below my post, yeah it's okay, have a looky, you will see a handy menu bar that's exactly the same as the top one.

    This Dark Kingdom ad is really starting to annoy me. I find that it works better in Internet Explorer than Firefox, but still, incredibly annoying.

    I don't see any of those drop-down flash adverts now. I filtered those ones out. All the regular gif/jpg banner ads load okay though.

    Hmm... Was the bottom ad put in as part of some diabolical scheme to disable the bottom menu links that were added to combat the disabling effect of ads at the top of the page?

    Mal: Yes.
    Shadow: No. (The bottom menu links are too far away to be affected. )

    IMO, the ads at the bottom of the page are a bit too much.

    And please to do not tell me to disable them because the program is in use on other program and I don't want to turn them off just for gateworld and then turn it back on for the other sites.

    That's my opinon and I'm sticking to it.

    Thanks for listening.

    Ads full stop annoy me! Made worse because most of the ads have ridiculous load times.

    If you really love GateWorld, you should consider occasionally clicking on an ad just to give the site a nice financial boost...even if it's just once a week, if everyone did that, GW would never have a funds problem.Like Skydiver said, GW doesn't choose the ads, but even if we did, should you feel justified in stealing something because you no longer like the price?
    I agree with your opinion ...
    Which leads me to my next question. If I click on the ad where will it lead me? I never click on ads because, my understanding is, it'll take me to another ad I need to click, and another and another and another ... and my computer will become infiltrated with cookies I don't want.

    Suggestions?

    i gotta say.
    I never minded the ad at the top.
    But this new ad at the bottom above the quick reply box is really in the way.

    have you ever considered ads that are in the margins?

    "In the way" ads pay more than unintrusive ads because they're more likely to be seen. This is why pop ups gained such popularity. The more intrusive it is, the more it will be noticed, and thus the product name will get out there.

    Just curious, but is there any way we can just make a donation to Gateworld so we do not have to see the ads any longer? I'm assuming the ads are used to raise money in order to keep the site going, but I won't use the ads so it's really a waste of time for me. I'd much rather just donate to a site I enjoy and not have to deal with the ads any longer.

    My apologies if this has already been suggested and I missed the post,

    From what I understand, Darren doesn't wanna go that route. Yet.

    Ads exist so that the site can remain free. But yep, we are definitely kicking around a paid forum subscription program that will allow you to go ad-free (and get some extra perks to boot). Stay tuned for more on this.

    Would that be a one time payment or monthly?

    Oh please NO. With the top and bottom ads you can easily scroll those off the screen, but the side ads you can't do that real easily. The main Gateworld website page has the side ads and they annoy me so much I rarely go there.

    On the other hand, I'm spending way too much time on this forum and that would help me cut back.

    It would be a regular cost, hopefully with options to pay monthly, quarterly, bi-annually, or annually. Not sure yet.
