In trying to figure out how to delete the ads, I have discovered how to add a picture up top (unfortunately, it looks like you have to pay to remove adds, and you pay by the 150,000 ads, meaning you have to pay again after a while... LAME).

I temporarily have the dancing skeletons lined up...

Does someone, anyone, have a better image they would like to contribute? If so, please post it and I can put it up there.

I don't see any ads on this page at all. Nor on BCE or SA. I use a firefox add-in called adblockplus.

That's the idea... so, after several good ones are posted, I'll do a poll to decide the winner

I remember we ran into the same problem when the gdvault was at its original server. Chris(clarson) had a easy program to do to block the ads but we eventually had to leave that server. 1) because they shut down our bt tracker. and 2) they were pricks 3) some people in the gd community were having problems with us having ads up in our forum and running our tracker from the same place.

I've downloaded that, but couldn't install it yet, I will do so when I get home.

Everyone should know, for it to work, you have to do it on your computer individually. For me to get rid of it (I researched further), it would cost 10 EUROs to get rid of adds for 150,000 screen views... that translates into about 5 days, since I hit refresh about 15,000/day, plus whatever you all do. Just kidding, not 15,000, but you get the point.

I will update to let you know whether the adblockplus worked for me.


UPDATE;;;

It did not work... is there anything else you did AJCraig? Or just DLed it?

I know there's a couple lists you can subscibe to for adblock plus. My guess is it's a European list.

I think that if you right click on a particular ad, you can block it and/or images from that advertiser, forever too.

Personally, I like the dancing skeletons. I prefer subtle rather than in your face.

I can relate to that. The dancing skeletons don't really need an upgrade.

I like the Jerry Garcia pic you chose for your new avatar. Smile

So, in the end, I have addblock plus with special filters, even tried element hiding ad-on... plus the spyware blaster... and I still have these damned ads in Italian... and now my wife can't use her yahoo e-mail...

Any other ideas?

Did other people who added addblock plus get rid of the commercials?

I've got adblock plus working. It took ouy completely all the ribbon ads on the other two forums (fora?) and all I've got going is this on LSP

It's relatively insignificant and doesn't bother me. Not like the bloody great banners on the other sites. I still get hotmail emails but I don't have a yahoo address.
