I posted an announcement earlier today about the new ad system we're trying. To clarify -
1. There are no pop-ups on the site - you only get a tooltip kind of pop-up when hovering over a link. This is actually done to help you decide whether or not to click on the link and avoid what is known as "blind links". If you don't hover your mouse over the links, it won't show anything.
2. We have little control over which kind of ad appears. The ads are delivered through a central ad agency. If you see anything inappropriate for a family-friendly site, please note the URL that shows up in the ad and drop me a PM. We will then ask our ad agency to remove those advertisers. On a side note - they did say it will take a couple of weeks for the system to "learn" the site and deliver the best ads, so I don't want to judge the quality of the ads just yet.
As for becoming a subscribed member - that's the best way to support the site and turn off every type of advertising that we have, including banners, text-ads, in-text ads etc. It also comes with some additional benefits
Paying by Paypal is usualy the easiest method, but you can also pay by check, if you opt for an annual subscription. If anyone is interested, please PM me and I will arrange payment details with you
Thank you again for the feedback and for your interest in becoming paying members!
