Did the cost of ad block change? I contributed $15 this year and have been seeing ads all along. Today I saw a forum thread about a Tanga deal and went to look for the link and realized it wasn't there. When I checked my profile I saw that I had ad block active Through next year.

To be clear I'm ok with the ad block on, the pages load much better on an iPad without the ads. I was just surprised to have it.

I guess if you've contributed $15 on 2011-02-19 and $15 on 2012-01-07, you have contributed $30 in one year. If you would have paid this years contribution say in march, I don't know if you would have had the ad block.

I suppose that may be. It seems a little "gamey" though.

It is using a Jan 2013 expiration date.

The Road goes ever on and on Down from the door where it began. Now far ahead the Road has gone, And I must follow, if I can, Pursuing it with eager feet, Until it joins some larger way Where many paths and errands meet.

Its not automatic. You have to configure it in your adblock settings!

You do have to switch it on but I though it was $25 and had been for some time?

If you spend $25.00 or more, then you will be able to disable advertisements on the site.

I gave $15 in Feb 2011 and the same in Jan 2012. It appears to be considering this $25+ within a single year, unless someone can tell me otherwise. Oddly instead of expiring in Feb of this year it is going till Jan of 2013.

I have had ad lock in the past and had to activate it. It seems this time it defaulted to being on. Perhaps because it was set to be on when it expired 2 years ago?
