    Unhappy advertisements

    So one of the reasons I do not get on line here as much is because I have to put up with a sea of ads.
    I do not know about the rest of you but I find them very annoying, every time I open a new post

    Please take some screen shots and post them here so I can see the ads.

    CaptnKidd, I've noticed over the years as SRF membership grew the ads increased. I bet some companies will not advertise on a forum until its membership count reaches a certain number. Oh well it is the World Wide Web which equals an electronic cash cow. I try to overlook them and zero in on the latest threads.

    Ok, we need to all be on the same page. So, I took some screen shots.

    If a User is logged into Stingray forums they should only see one ad:

    Name:  Ad.png
Views: 121
Size:  476.6 KB


    If a User is not logged in then the ads do get much worse and look like this:

    Name:  More ads not logged in.png
Views: 123
Size:  310.6 KB
    Name:  big ads not logged in.png
Views: 121
Size:  864.3 KB


    So if you log into the forum, you should only see one ad. If that is not the case, then take a screen shot of the ad and post it so I can research it more.

    Please let me know if these are the ads that you are seeing.

    Also, I know a few users who received Amazon pop-up ads. That turned out to be a virus on their device and not related to the forum. Here is some more info about the Amazon pop-up virus, again this virus is not on Stingrayforums. The virus is on the device used to view the forum. Here are some steps to fix that problem: https://www.inc.com/bill-murphy-jr/y...op-up-ads.html

    Same here. No issues, Chrome with AdBlock. But as Vigilance247 pointed out, most probably more the case of using SRF without signing in.

    Those ads are only viewable for logged out members. Log in and you will have a better experience as it will remove most of them.

    I was having this problem at the same time. Then, pop-up ads began to appear on other web pages that the ad blocker normally worked on. Then some other issues on my PC, and I ended up doing a System Restore to re-install Windows. Nice rainy day activity. Everything is working now, and I have learned some more IT skills. (I never had the banner ad across the top since I started using the Ad Blocker.)

    I notice the same thing. Ads on the lower right side. Then wanted to respond and found out I was logged out. Just log in and they are gone.
