    Hi Folks :)

    I've removed the ads from the site for the time being to encourage new posting. :D I might add them back on in time for guests, but at the moment I'm going to concentrate on getting the activity back :)

    lol, good job spike. ;)

    They never really bothered me, then again I did donate to the site a while back and they were removed for a while, so I forgot about them.

    Just a heads up to let you know that I'm testing out a single ad on some pages for guests only (I don't intend on adding them for registered users though, so most people reading this probably won't even notice ;)).

    Maybe Adblock Plus has been keeping them out of sight or I am just going blind, but I haven't noticed any ads...

    It's only for guest users, so anyone logged in won't see any ;)

    :D

    No, I meant that I haven't noticed any ads on the site since you took over as admin.

    I did occasionally, but we only had 1 small banner test advert, so you might have missed it

    I'm not observant, so unless you told me to specifically look for the ads I would not have seen them.
