    What's with the ads?

    Banner ads are now all the way down the side of the threads.
    I got used to the text ad about cycling Africa but the new banner ads are irritating.

    And the video ads slow down the load times.
    I'll trade back for the database errors, takes about the same time for the page to load.

    Why do you see ads if you're a red star?

    Allen, PM me a screenshot of this so I can forward it upstairs to tech. We'll see what we can do about it.

    I'd be happy with the ads that way if it meant only BF related stuff like how to join got in with the posts.

    I've been seeing them for the past couple of weeks as well; I just assumed IB brought the ads back when the Titanium level was created.

    Try a cookie deletion. The webmaster had to do a live fix this afternoon, and things may have glitched.

    Let me know if they are still showing up after the cookies are cleared and you re log in.....

    Yup...tossed my cookies, cleared the cache and logged back in. The ads are still there, and in FF 2.0 they are actually overlaying some of the frames.

    I just cleared cookies, and I am still seeing ads... In fact, I just started seeing them a few minutes ago... so it may be getting worse.

    Yeah, you should see ads. Red star and Titanium are ad free. Red Star is no longer sold, though, but you can go Ti.

    That's odd. The Igor's provided ad free access up until a couple of days ago. If you look in the news and announcements page, there was a whole thread about donating to a charitable cause and getting an Igor.

    I'm guessing that this decision was reversed in recent days?

    Nope, Igors provided a symbol that you had donated to a charity as a recognition. The red star igors, or Ti igors serve the same purpose, but are ad free.

    I'm not having much trouble with ads. They're in English and large enough to read for the most part.
