Google Ads Polluting Now Polluting This Forum

Just when you thought there was a safe haven from Google Ads.......

I really hope the administrators of this site rethink this strategy.

The ads are merely cookie driven based on our past searches on products and services we have already bought!

PLEASE.......GET RID OF THE ADS!

I'm SORRY and believe me.....I HATE THEM TOO! But then I'm hit with the reality of the costs to run this site monthly. Premium memberships are at an all time LOW and the costs keep rising! I'm sure its the same for all of you. If just 20% of members would show appreciation for the info provided here...we would be fine! Unfortunately.....90% of the public thinks what they view on the net is free. It's my fault....I'll accept that.....cause I don't want to pay from my own personal money to keep this site open! I dedicate enough time and effort. This has turned into a Full Time job for me on top of all my other obligations with my real job, family etc. You get the jist....

I will also say that you folks from Oz have been great. I am looking to make the ads unseen by premium members.

Re: Google Ads Polluting Now Polluting This Forum

I would support ad's being displayed for the offset of a free Jeep forum. Sure it is sometimes inconvenient, but reality says that someone has to pay for servers and their maintenance.
These days, with so many ad's flashing on a screen, you tend to ignore that portion of the screen and go to where you know the real info is.

Re: Google Ads Polluting Now Polluting This Forum

Hadn't really noticed the ads...

I for one have found this site to be a fantastic resource for information so I'm more than happy to put up with a few ads if that helps Scott keep the thing running.

Re: Google Ads Polluting Now Polluting This Forum

^+1 I also like where they are positioned it is heaps better than through the thread. We appreciate all you work Scott (and the other committee members and mods). This site has been invaluable for me. Firstly in initial research, then knowledge sharing, but also enjoyment seeing the other rigs etc.

Re: Google Ads Polluting Now Polluting This Forum

I didnt really notice them until now. There are commercial realities here, so I dont think they're a big deal.

They're not really intrusive which makes the tolerable. We appreciate all the effort the admins and moderators put in - especially as this is such a valuable resource for us on the otherside of the world...

Thanks Scott, I totally get it, and I agree with you wholeheartedly, you've created a fantastic site and have probably poured enough of your own money into it. If only there were less "freeloaders" using the site, particularly those who have actually received a significant benefit from the invaluable information we have all gleaned from it.

Not sure how forums work behind the scenes but could you not give new folk say 10 free log on's to really appreciate the value of the forum and then paid up membership if they want to?

BTW, I only noticed the ads yesterday, when did they go live?
