Excessive Ads removed

Post by UOducksTK1 »

Google adsense had turned on auto ads, so as a result a bunch more fiscally advantageous ads were placed on the forum.

I've turned that off. There should no longer be invasive ads, especially the one that was taking up the whole screen.

Just curious, was the amount you received from these adds significantly more than what you'll receive from the new ones.

That's a good question, I'd have to look into it. Plus I'm not even sure when the auto ads got turned on?

As annoying as it was, if it’s significantly more I for one would support it. Even as a phone user where it is pretty rough, it’s only a second or two to click out of.

Getting the full screen ads? This should be fixed

Or are you still getting database error? Database error isn’t fixed. I’m working on it.
