    Why are you accepting ads?


    Ads are a supplement to help offset costs that donations don't cover. While donations mostly cover the current costs we recently had to add some extra storage for the avatars, profile pics, and albums because those features do use up space.

    The ads bother me, and I don't like the message telling me to turn off my adblocker!


    If you legitimately need the ads turned off, there is a way to do that. You'll just have to contact me via a form I'll make available later or through the Paid Subscriptions options. Paid Subscriptions will always be exempt from seeing the ads, although it may take a short time for them to stop showing up once your subscription is confirmed. I know some may think the paid subscriptions are a bit expensive, but remember that PayPal takes a cut of those prices if you pay with any method that isn't from your PayPal balance or a a bank transfer.

    There are other advantages that will be coming in the future to the paid subscriptions. Those will be detailed later as they get closer to implementation.

    I see an ad that contains inappropriate content!


    No, you don't. Literally every ad is hosted directly on this server and had to be approved by Renko personally. It literally could not be on the board if it wasn't approved.

    You can find the rules for advertisers here that defines what is and is not acceptable. In fact the current placeholder image is about the worst thing I'll accept in an ad.

    Is there a way to disable the ads for me without a subscription? It messes with my accessibility tech.


    Yes, there is. As stated previously I will be providing a form where you can request to be placed in a special usergroup that will disable the ads if you have a legitimate need for it.

      View the info for advertisers as well. All of the infuriating things about ads are not allowed. "No scripts, no animation." I will gladly put up with ads under these conditions.

      Ah, thanks for pointing out that I forgot to link to that page from this one. Should be fixed in few hours when the cache resets

      Yes, the link for advertisers is missing at the moment. It needs a major overhaul to reflect how ads are handled now under vb5

    These are our advertising guidelines for advertisers. Please adhere to them or your ad will not be approved.
    • All ads that are submitted will have to be in PNG or JPG format. No scripts, no animation.
    • Unless you're a user in good standing on the board or your email address matches one for the domain of the site you're advertising? Yeah, your ad will not be approved without additional verification that you are authorized to act on the product/site's behalf.
    • If your company/site has bad reputation in the community
