Noticed the new Netflix advert on the main page. Problem is I paid to be able to delete the advertising on this website and yet this one doesn't go away.

I have banners turned on, but don't see it on the front page. (It is appearing on every other page including the GeekMod image approval form.)

I was about to create the same thread. Not only do I have all ads disabled, but this ad takes up space that could oh so better be used to extend the Recently Viewed by about 50 games. I've turned off Hot Games (with something like 100 games listed), so I was hoping to see like 100 Recently Viewed games. Instead, it only goes back 10 games and is followed by an ad for something I can't even use--DVD Rentals.

Let's see if it can go away and then let's work on lobbying for a longer Recently Viewed section.

I wouldn't mind a long recently viewed list myself.

As for the ads. I do like the fact that we can choose to keep and delete ad stuff seperately. I like for example the promos because there's some cool stuff there and I actually like the top banner for some reason but I'll get rid of those too if I have to to get rid of this netflix ad from where it's at.

Being able to go ad free is great at work. I think it makes BGG look more work related.

(I'll delete my thread on this topic.)

I've got it filtered under the adblocking system. Thanks for letting me know, and I apologize for the inconvenience.

Thanks, Scott. Now about that Recently Viewed thing. As I type this, I look under the Geek Guy and see "Recently Viewed" with nothing under it. Not even the 10 I'm used to seeing. I wonder if this means you're working on this issue as we speak.

Sure is nice having a full-time employee at BGG. But you're probably underpaid.

I just finished up the recently viewed. You should be able to edit it under your front page config now.
