    In your case they shouldn't show.

    The only explanation I have is that you changed your email address through the system which put you back in the Registered User usergroup by default. That's where I found you anyways

    It should be fixed now and they should no longer show.

    Whomever thought that putting up banner ads that make NOISE needs to have my size 12 firmly implanted between their arse cheeks! Some of us attempt to browse the board during our lunch break at work, and that annoying swooshing noise just doesn't cut it... I've got zero problems with you funding the board with banner ads, but please do so QUIETLY!

    I appreciate your feedback Pomakai and trust me the noisy banner is not a preference of mine. I've been working hard on getting some less intrusive, less annoying banners in place and I'll getting that solved very soon.

    The amazingly annoying sound banner has now been replaced with a non-flash animated banner and the top banner has been optimized and is now 1/10th of the original size.

    I hope this makes for a better surfing experience for you guys.

    I wish we could actually rely on regular donations and not have to have any banners at all, but it's understandable that this is not an option, so I'm sorry for having to put advertisements on the site, but it pays the bill and keeps this site online more or less.

    It's not an issue having ads on the site. We can all deal with banner ads, as we know they pay the bills. It's just when the ads take away from our use of the board and/or provide a bad experience. Ads with sound, pop-over and pop-under ads, as well as any type of ad that attempts to make a change to my PC without my asking is a BAD ad. Everything else, is just a necessary evil that we must endure. Thanks again for killing that ad with sound. It makes it possible for me to surf the site a bit while at work when it's just plain dead in the office...

    Was never a problem for me since I do not turn on my speakers at work for exactly this reason. there are some websites that just surprise you with noisy ads especially if you are accessing the site for the first time. For those who frequent a site that has noisy ads, you learn to either turn down or completely shut off your speakers when sending a feedback is not an option.
