Posted this in the General section... ads??

Postby Dan Kreider » Wed Jan 04, 2017 3:58 pm

This is copied from the General section...

I don't know how much it costs to run the forums, or who foots the bill, but I have a feeling that enough of us might be willing to donate on an annual basis to fund the forum without advertisements. Do an annual donation fundraiser, similar to Wikipedia. I can't imagine the ads bring in that much revenue anyways. Although I understand why they're used, it would be wonderful to get rid of them.

Thoughts, mods?

Personally, I overlook the ads completely. Being at the bottom of the page, they just don't impinge on my conciousness!

They aren't just at the bottom of the page. They are interspersed between posts. It does make it hard to read the posts. But, it does pay for the space.

I use adblock, as well.

I find I just don't notice the ads. I also have AdBlock but turned it off for this site since a blocked ad usually does not provide revenue to the site.

After writing the above, I realized I'm not really sure if just having me see the ad provides revenue to the site or whether I have to click the ad or whether I have to actually buy something. If clicking the ad is needed, I would be willing to do that from time to time as a thank you for having this Forum available.
