I have been saying for some time that we'd have ads on the forum and as of 3 days ago I have begun testing advertising on PF.com. If you're seeing ads and it makes you upset, or you hate it, I am truly sorry. I held off on putting advertising in front of readers and posters for 8 years. There is a way to avoid seeing ads, as many of our regular posters do not see them. I set up a proper donation system, where for a small (or large) one time donation, you can keep the forum an ad free experience when you're logged in. Right now, nearly 25 of the forum's most regular posters are currently ad free, having made a donation in 2009 or 2013. For more details about bypassing ads or just donating to the forum, please read this thread.

If we find Google isn't earning us enough revenue, we will look at other sources.
