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:

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

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.

Use Chrome with AdBlock. Virtually no ads anywhere on World Wide Web. I have zero ads on StingRayForums.

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

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.
