Angry Advertising

Is there a premium version of the forum that eliminates all the ads?

Not that I am aware of. Having ads is how the forum owners fund the forum costs and keep it free for all who want to join. That was a decision that they made a long time ago.

Jim, might we ask what kind of ads are you getting that might be irritating? On all three setups here we only see ads at the bottom/side that appear and are not video, only photo ads They are not annoying in the least. Yahoo home page is annoying, ESPN home page is annoying, Bears fans are annoying...

As Chip said, "There is no ad free forum version" Everyone gets the same "Premium info/minimal intrusive advertising format"... For the cost, it's one of the best buys on the internet. Yup, I'm probably a tad bit biased in my opinion... Anyway, WISIWYG is the "forum mantra".....

I run adblock and have no adverts other than RV life stuff. Coincidence?

On a computer, I see ads on the right hand side, which isn't particularly annoying. On a smartphone, I see a big ad where the first post ought to be, and more full-screen ads interspersed between posts, which is much more intrusive, but it isn't as if there's room for a separate column, so I understand it.

If you use Tapatalk on a phone instead of a browser, and have the (paid) ad-free version of Tapatalk, that might remove all the ads, but it also removes all the smilies.

I had been looking at changing to the pro version of Tapatalk but no smilies would be a deal breaker. Does anything else change from the free version? And you get none of these: ???
