Subject: Ads on the site when I'm a paid member? rss

Is there still supposed to be one Kickstarter ad on BGG regardless of me being a paid member (I just checked, and my "adblock subscription" expires on December 1).

I notice that I have one when I come to the site on my iPad/iPhone, and thought it was a mobile device thing, but then I turned off my browser adblock and saw that there was one on here.

I thought a paid subscription meant *no* ads?

Just curious.

I means control of which ads you get; many subscribers prefer to see (some) ads, so you can toggle each type of advertising on or off to your preference. On your profile page you should see a "Configure" link in the adblock section which allows you to do this. (I don't know which kickstarter ad you mean, but I suspect that you'll see at least one checkbox still checked on that configuration page.)

Thanks for the quick answer. It appears to be the other way around.

The boxes seem to be to for what you want blocked, and none of them were checked.

I just checked them all, and now they're gone!

So thank you for pointing me to that page.

Thanks for this info! My tiny iPad just got a bit easier to read.
