Patreon supporters new feature (no more ads)

(Jose C Gomez) #1

Hi All,
Just implemented a new feature were our patreon supporters should no longer see ads. Let me know if you have any issues with this.

Thank you!

Looks good. I didn’t really mind the ads though. If it means more support for the site I don’t mind if they are there.

Thanks Dan,
Yeah its a new feature, we’ll try it out and see. I suspect the patreon folks are also our most frequent users so that may have an impact on the ad rev… But it should be fine.

I still see ads, but dont mind them if it helps revenue to pay hosting. FYI the Viagra ads have increased.

Yeah I turned it back off I’m gonna make it opt in.

So turning it off for everyone caused un-intended issues. If you are a patreon member and would like to stop seeing ads you can now request to opt out of ads by joining this group

For removing ads on mobile only join this group

Thank you!

Thanks Jose, if the ads help put a few more bucks into the site then I’m fine with them on too. I’ll keep the option in mind though.

Looks like the ads size has been increased recently. Is there a way to turn off ads for work while I can leave it on when I am home?

(Jose C Gomez) #11

We haven’t changed the sizes and no there’s no way for us to know when you are home.
If the ads are a problem for work just apply to the add free group and theyll be gone :smiley:

Looks good Ads are gone once I switched to the 10$+ Tier a small price to pay monthly for the value and if you are self-employed, you can just expense it on your taxes as continues education.

If you want to become a Golden/Sustaining Patreon Supporter you just login to Patreon and upper right corner click on Profile Picture and go to My Memberships then you can edit your contribution, make sure you select the 10$ Tier (Sustaining) and I think it should all sync up.
