The webcrawlers & data cross-referencing that goes on now is a worry though.

On my facebook feed an ad for a certain pharmaceutical company specialising in treating men's health issues pops up every now & then naming one or 2 of my matez as having "liked" them.

Given they seem to specialise in "kickstarting" bloke's "engines" & ensuring a "long drive" with "no troubles" I'd have thought a certain amount of privacy should be respected?
Thats more interesting than I get.
All I get is furniture adds, and no my name is not Trent.
Then again I have been on the Kennel 🤔

Is this really the future of Silvertails - ads that take up 40% of the screen space

Beyond frustrating and these infuriating companies will be boycotted.

Dan, anyway of hiding these stupid ads?
I'm actually having great difficulty typing a message, they're popping up on top of my text and I can't see what I've typed or where I am, driving me to drink, mmmmm beer

Wow, I never took @XV-1 for a cat person LOL

Just proves how schiit these annoying ads are. 😉

I have never been on any website, ever, where the ad's are as intrusive as these one's are. Even porn sites have less intrusive ads.

Trying to blackmail people to pay premium memberships, otherwise you get ads 40% the size of the screen is plain and simple wrong on every level.

Every other web site on earth seems to be able to exist without these crazy ads. But not Silvertails.
 
"This" poster won the tipping comp?....c'mon!

But will the Premium membership improve some of the posts?


Obviously! If I see you're a premium member, I give you my 'A game' responses. (lol)

Dan posted to let him know so he can filter those ads out.

Tipping Comp 2021
I paid it.....didnt know it was an option till an hour ago but I dont like the rhetoric of just pay it.

From the sites view (Dan might tell me I'm an idiot) but you want revenue from rusted on regulars with membership but you also want high traffic with casuals which then contributes to ad sales. If ads become more invasive, casuals may just not visit.

From the users view, I think of a friend of mine, single parent, living week to week, budgeting to the absolute extreme. She wont buy herself a coffee out as not to waste money. $30 a year is an expense that is not critical. Surely the view for people like that shouldnt be suck it.

Anyhoo....carry on
Correct I don't want make the site look crap and difficult for people to use. I don't want to annoy them into getting membership.

The combination of membership, tipping competition and advertising pay for the site hosting fees and various licenses we have.

I've managed to remove one creative that is too big and I'll work on removing others as they come through
