I see the homemodelenginemachinist now puts ads at the bottom of contributors post photos.

I think that is tacky and stopped looking at once.

I just see big blank areas under the pics--No ads.
Don't see ads here either.

Well, he sold the forum. They didn't buy it for philanthropy :)

I agree, though -- sucks.

When the sell-out took place the new owners said something like 'nothing is going to change for members but we do want to monetarise (ie show ads to) visitors'. I've not rejoined but I do visit from time to time and have noticed adverts.

Are members seeing the ads?

I don't see any ads even when I disable my front end filtering. I do know that a lot of the users there past in animated smilies from around the web rather than using what is built into the BBS. I wonder of those are going to be tagged, too. That can get old, fast :)

I had stopped logging in a while back. I see the ads do go away once i logged in.
