I think we should say "Most" advertisements are removed.

What you all say?

That would probably be more accurate, since I still get an ad at the top and bottom of pages with my free membership.

melbrod THX...We could do that at our end...I think it may be already a sticky but I didn't check to see if we had closed it???

Could you take a look at the first post and see if it is all still accurate and if you can think of anything that might need to be added there??
07-23-2018 03:19 PM
doberadmin I normally just go by the advertising page - https://www.dobermantalk.com/payments.php

I could re-post the link you sent as a sticky and not allow posting on it if you like?

melbrod Thanks for your feedback........I get snarly when I have to wade through too many ads....it seems to be the thing everywhere these days. *sigh* I appreciate your explanation.

Oh, and thanks for the info about membership and the ad thing. I'd hate to tell people the wrong thing about membership because I didn't understand it right in the first place.

I know we have this sticky about membership upgrades, but it's fairly old https://www.dobermantalk.com/site-ne...ite-perks.html To other mods......is there an updated one? Has any of this changed or does something need to be added?? Maybe we could repost it without the comments about renewal/charging problems...that's all old stuff too?

Either way, we apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Thanks for the clarification - it's much appreciated.

melbrod It's not good business to alienate people who have paid for memberships, in part to avoid pop-up ads, by going back on your promises and running pop-ups anyway. Even if "the campaign ends tonight, so you won't see it again after that".

Will there be another campaign like this one? Is this the camel's nose under the tent?

Rosemary I'm on two other Vertical Scope forums, all with basic free memberships, but DT is the only one where I'm getting the ad.

I don't get any pop ups either - especially on Chrome. I have no idea how these got through.

Why was this happening at all for paid users? I thought that was part of the package for people who choose to support the site?

greenkouki Yep, all the sudden out of the blue. I thought ads were just for visitors not registered users so maybe there's something going on that shouldn't be.
07-17-2018 11:33 AM
melbrod Me too....I was just wondering the same thing.
07-17-2018 11:25 AM
Rosemary I guess they REALLY want us to try Prime.

But yeah, super annoying.

Pop up ads?

Why the heck is there an Amazon Prime pop up ad on the site? I shouldn't be seeing any at all....I know others have been getting them, too.
