If yall get fancy enough with the integrations and can figure a way to do a paid sub (25 a year?) which turns off ads i think you'll get more people doing that..at least those of us that are more regular (i admit i have been negligent and not donated during my time here but find pbr an invaluable forum, so i do apologize)

Is there a way for a new web browser to open when you click on an ad and it doesn't take you away from PR? Not sure if that is my home computer set up or at the website level? Thanks.

Can we pin a donation thread? I would happily randomly drop donations to assist with site costs. I am sure many others would as well.

I'd be down to pay to subscribe, support a Canadian site and remove ads.

Appreciate you guys keeping it going.

The plan is to hide ads from the members who donated. We are using the auto ads to start, just to get a feel for the activity and get a baseline, then I need to remove all of the ads and redo it manually (next weekend) once that is done, ads will hide for those that have donated... more to follow...

nononono... see, you need subscriptions.. and you need to tier them. Pro, Premium and Legendary

Pro - No ads
Premium - you get ads still but you can talk shit about people who only donated at a "pro" level
Legendary - Back to no ads but you don't really post, because you just like to collect and not actually play... i mean post.

;)

Let me know where and how to donate to get rid of the ads. They are shite! :)

Thanks!

Just wondering how this is coming along. No big deal, but I haven't noticed a difference with the ads.

The ads will be cleaned up probably tomorrow with an option to become a member and remove the ads. Sorry about the excess ads, it is the default of adsense and we will limite the volume to be a bit more reasonable
