Ads when logged in now?

Weren't we shielded from ads when we were logged in until, well, today I think? Is this going to stick? As a $tromtrooper I have to see ads now also?

Use Firefox with the Ad block plug in and your issues will disappear.
I have never seen an ad on this forum and didn't know they existed until people started complaining some months ago.

I noticed the ads today also. Two clicks on my adblocker and they're gone.

The only ads you should ever see if you are a stromtrooper if you have a premium account are for site vendors. This means you see only one ad position for vendors that sell products for you. If there has been any changes to what you have seen as far as ads please let me know. There have always been ads on this site from the beginning.

The only ad I ever see when Ad Blocker is turned off is a small banner about an inch below the Google Search box.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s
See https://www.stromtrooper.com/general-...nicknames.html

Administrator, the ads I am now seeing are new to me. I did not see anything before as long as I maintained my premium membership.

Ditto that.

And, yes, the banner ads are the new ones I'm seeing also. And yes, adblocker works well. Was just surprised to see yet another level, not expecting that when logged in and a paying member.

You never before saw an adbanner that said motorcycle.com when you where a premium member? that was a place holder for supporting vendor banners. If you scroll to the bottom you will see the ad that you see at the top corresponds with vendors that are here on the site as supporting vendors. Also please read the payments page it says less ads not no ads.

Correction, you did not see any ads before at all, I just talked to ad traffic. Normally there would have been the motorcycle.com adbanner in place but because we had no active supporting vendor accounts on the site there was no placement for them. The one current ad position you see is for the supporting vendors you see at the bottom of the forum with their own sections.
