    ADS!!

    I understand ads and how they are needed to help generate funds to keep this site up and running.
    Generally they are not an issue or as intrusive but at the moment they are really annoying and gets right in the way.

    2nd post of every page on every thread?
    Really?
    Does it need to be that often?

    Is it possible to get theses removed?
    It was so much better with out them, it looks more like a free forum or something lesser than we I feel this forum is.
    If funds are needed more, hence the reason for the ads, push the Donate button more.

    I wouldn't even mind if ASN charged an annual membership fee as I've paid for previous car clubs/forums.

    Quick tweak of the filter and you can get rid of the whole panel too, rather than just adverts within.

    I understand and appreciate the reason to have ads. Loads of my sites that I run use Adsense. However... If the forum starts posting up sometimes irrelevant ads in-between posting its going to get rather annoying and become like every generic forum out there.

    Why was the decision made to move the ads from the bottom of the page to the 2nd post of every thread?

    Hi all

    Sorry about that we have run Google adsense for quite a while for people who aren't logged in. All those people who visit the site and don't post or join in are helpping to support the site in other ways

    Many thanks

    The first time I saw one of the ads I thought I'd been hacked and someone was posting using my account.
