Is there a way to turn off ads?

Post by perennialpam on Mon Feb 05, 2018 3:59 pm

Recently ads have started appearing at the top of my screen.

"Everybody's Watching Me!" -- wasn't there a song to the effect?

Is there a way to avoid that?

If it helps support the webpage I can deal.

Thanks.

I've installed uBlock Origin to block ads. Cool It's free and available for all browsers AFAIK and you can decide for every site whether to turn it on or off.

This is a free forum. And, well, as they say, "Nothing in life is really free". Wink So, the cost of our "free" forum is that unless, as Lovebird pointed out, you install a third party ad blocker then, yes, you are going to see ads.

And that is exactly why I turn it off on occasion... yes, I'm weird that way, but I'm grateful for the platform they've given us and installed the adblocker for a different reason than this place.

The only ad I see is for Topic'it, which is the app promoted by Forumotion for mobile access.

As long as there are no pop-ups, autoplaying videos, or huge amounts of screen space used, I'm fine with ads.

Thank you all for the info.

I did not want to ask because the forum is free but they just now started showing up and I did not understand why.

Don't feel bad asking! Asking questions is how we learn! Besides, I also learn a lot when members ask or suggest things.
