  • Adverts in posts.

    At what point did advertisements start appearing in our forum posts?

    I just had one pop up in one of mine for a dating agency for finding women from Thailand. I'm married!
    Jesus Christ....who do you say He is?

    I think this might be in the wrong forum. Sorry if so.

      Since this is the "Suggestions" forum let me be the first to suggest you install an adblocker.
      24 August 2013 - I've decided to take a break from a number of internet forums, including this one, for my own reasons.
      I expect to be back at some time in the future, although at present don't know when that will be.
      I've been here just a few days shy of six years, and those six years have been greatly blessed.

        We unfortunately have limited power over what advert is shown...
        Sorry about that.
        Luckily not all adverts are like that

        We'll see what we can do about selecting the adverts running on the forum...

            There's an advert banner at the top now for the Mormons. It says "I learned more about Jesus Christ by reading the book of Mormon"
            Jesus Christ....who do you say He is?

              Unfortunately "Mormonism" falls in the category of "Religion"
              We are allowing adverts on the forum since we have lost the support for hosting the Forum.
              Thus to keep the membership Free, we had to come up with a plan.... we are still in the process of sorting through the settings.... but ...
              Sorry about that advert.... yet as I said...it falls in the category of Religion....

                Oh that's fine! I didn't realise that we lost support!

                  The very best way to avoid ever seeing any ads online again (even on Facebook) is to 1. install Firefox, and 2. install Firefox's adblocker. I'm happy to walk anyone through this.

                      If people want to allow ads from a specific site I'm sure there are ways to do it.

                      I installed ad blockers based on ever-more intrusive advertising (before there were ads here) where some sites I frequented seemed to have more space devoted to advertising than the stated purpose of the site, where the ads took longer to load than the rest of the site, and where just about everything was getting brighter and louder to the point they heavily detracted from the experience of the site. Rather than pay every single site for a membership (which in many cases offered no benefit except the removal of the ads) I used a free add-on to filter them all out.

                      When a site offers a useful benefit for a paid membership I'm happy to consider whether paying is worthwhile. When all they do is put more and more in-yer-face adverts all over everything and then invite me to pay to make the ads go away I won't play that game as a matter of principle.

                        Here's a little nugget that just popped up now.

                        This IGNORE button is by far one of the most useful tools I've used to keep my peace while navigating through some of the madness.

                            We'll not charge membership....we are looking into other ways for funding at the moment .....

                            The adverts that I see are Messianic Bible, KJV Bible downloads, Scripture memory, Kingdom Vision .... etc.


                            Don't click on the "nuggets" as SEEKING calls them... But there are some really helpful ones I have visited...
