    Absolutely ridiculous advertising sizes... again.

    How many websites do you visit on a regular basis? How many of those do you pay to visit? The majority of visitors will never pay to access this forum. That is a simple fact and you can carry on about how unfair it is all you like - it won't change it. If the website user experience continues...

    What Cheeses Me Off!!!!

    Statement is issued on 13th. Payment is made on 13th. That is definitely not outside of any 14 or 25 day period lol.

    What Cheeses Me Off!!!!

    I'd never heard of or encountered the whole "you cant pay until after the statement is issued" thing before. That's an absolute con IMO but whatever, it's manageable - Just means the money sits in my account longer before it goes to them. But this one of having to wait a couple of days until...

    What Cheeses Me Off!!!!

    @#@##$%$!!!@@!!@@# I *hate* banks... Especially, at the moment, bloody NAB!!! I get paid on the 15th of each month.. If that falls on a weekend or public holiday, it's the business day before.. Every month, when my pay goes in, I go through and make all of my required credit card and other...

    Even YouTube provides incentive for the paid service - you get to save videos to view offline and continue playing in the background / while screen is turned off or locked on mobile devices.

    Agreed that the mobile format is good. No issues there. Just fix your damned desktop experience :P (side note - it seems fine today... I'm not sure if you've changed it, but the ads now are being presented as a full width banner between the grey header with the primary header menu and the...

    Absolutely ridiculous advertising sizes... again.

    I agree that they do need to be a little annoying - If we don't see them, they're pointless. They still shouldn't mess with the formatting or layout of the website though and degrade the user experience. If a person's first experience on the website were what I posted a screenshot of at the...

    Again... I have no issue looking at ads. I think that it is perfectly reasonable to be served ads - those ads shouldn't ruin the user experience though.

    I actually think the current model is OK (albeit I really don't see the current incentive to become a paid member, so I do think your suggestion to make more of the site exclusive makes sense) - It's just the implementation that is letting it down.

    To provide perhaps a slightly more constructive input that just my previous complaints... I assume you are serving the ad in the header because you perceive that's how you will get the maximum number of impressions and viewing time, right? Last night, when I visited the site I looked at a...

    Absolutely ridiculous advertising sizes... again.

    The screenshot is in the first post, and it was like that across every page on the forum. Using Chrome on a Windows 10 laptop, with default resolution (can't recall and not at that PC right now). There is nothing exotic about that setup. This SHOULDNT be a problem man - like I said multiple...

    You're missing the point @Patriot . Nobody has said they have a problem with there being ads, the problem is that you're letting the ads ruin the UX because they've been poorly implemented. I'm happy to support the site by being served ads, but there is no excuse for doing it so poorly when...

    It's nothing to do with antivirus software or any lack thereof. It's the poorly implemented advertising scripts used and where the code to serve the ads has been inserted in the website layout.

    I'm not paying for membership of any forum with admin who aren't willing to address the most basic and ongoing UX issues. Edit to add to my original reply here.. I wouldn't, and won't, pay to access this forum. Nor should I have to - advertising is served to generate revenue, the paid...
