    Have you all considered a paid subscription that will allow people to buy in and it completely remove the ads on the site? (vBulletin has the paid subscription with paypal already built in, and you can limit things shown to certain usergroups as well) I love the site, even with the minimal posts I have here and think id rather see it without the ads... id be willing to pay a nominal fee for that, and I think a lot of people would be willing to as well. Something like $12 a year, or $20 a year.... get a few people doing that and i think you will make way more than with Google AdSense....

    Just a thought!

    yeah but all the new user about to sign up would
    go to some other free forum.
    it just wouldn't work on this forum
    but i am with you about the ad's i hate them so much
    and i would pay $20 if they would go away
    just when im logged in maybe.

    We use the subscription feature on our reef website I setup, and its pretty seemless.... you can sign up for a free account still with no prompting to pay etc , and if you use the free account it would have all the ads. If you go into the UserCP you can add the subscription later if you choose to stay around. Once you do that, it will automatically swap you to the PSPMod Contributor group or whatever and then the rules with the PSPMod Contributor group would say... ok, no ads.

    Dude, I keep telling you guys.
    Get Mozilla Firefox, and get Adblock plus. I never even knew this place had ads, until I used IE at school...

    Let me show you what I see.

    I use Safari so I get them...

    I still think it would be a GREAT money supplement though to have a sweet subscription and you could have a bit of the "I supported this site" aspect of it too!

    I agree, it would be a great money maker.

    Do you use safari on a mac or pc?

    If for some reason, you use safari on a pc: You should delete it because it sucks and is truly terrible for pc. Get firefox, and find the "iSafari" theme for FF. I use it, looks great, functions perfectly. Plus no ads! I took those screencaps with that theme enabled actually.

    If you use it on a mac: Oh.

    The the firefox version for mac. I believe its called Camino. Dont quote me on that though. Go to mozilla.com and poke around until you find it. Trust me, its by far the best.

    Yeah, but FF on mac...sucks.
    No good support, it's slow, it's just not that great.

    Stick with the fastest browser there is for mac, safari.

    Wait a minute, how do you not like FF?
    It's fast, safe, and smart. No ads at all, and the GUI is honestly 10x better than Safari(for mac mind you). IE is horribly slow, and is bogged down with ads and all kinds of uselessness. It looks like crap, and functions worse than it looks. Don't even get me started on Safari for windows...
    Not to mention FF is completely customizable. In fact, if there's something specific that you don't like about FF, there's an extension, theme, or plug-in to fix it.

    I'm not getting defensive here, or worked up or anything. I just want to converse.

    So if I got firefox, could I make it look just like IE 7 but it would still be Firefox?

    Reason, I want this is because my parents get annoyed when I change stuff on the computer, so if I could get FF with an IE 7 theme then they shouldn't notice.
