As was foretold, we've added advertisements to the forums! If you have questions, or if you encounter any bugs, please visit this thread: https://forums.penny-arcade.com/discussion/240191/forum-advertisement-faq-and-reports-thread/

Are there any ads yet?

I've put an exception into my ad filter for PA, because I thought it would be VERY cheap to block ads on a forum I'm using for more than 15 years.

But I see none.. Are there any yet, and my filter is bad, or are they just not activated yet?

    They're not activated yet. The PM bug meant we couldn't make theme changes, now those theme changes are in a queue at Vanilla.

    Is there some way we could at least remove the announcement at the top of the screen?

    If you remove the announcement, then when the ads finally come, there will be a million "Ads? No one ever said anything about ads. I want my money back!" posts about it.

    Answer: yes. They were on the Ever Given, apparently.

    I’ve been getting ads for the last couple days and they’re starting to get very intrusive. Actively taking up my whole screen every time I load into the forums.

    It’s a bummer. Really hope they’re changed into something less disrupting.

    Have you shared that in the thread that's linked at the top of the forums asking for feedback on the new ads? https://forums.penny-arcade.com/discussion/240191/forum-advertisement-faq-and-reports-thread/

    Ads were only turned on today. If you were getting ads before this on the forums, you might have a different problem.

    I think it’s cause the “previous day” was more like “3 in the morning before I finally went to bed”.

    Wait, ads?

    This might be a good time to strongly promote club PA as a way to support the site and remove ads, along with all the other niceties.

    I was already a subscriber, but never linked it to my forum account - making the ads go away is a huge perk IMO that might convince folks to start paying for the membership.

    Duly noted!

    I'm closing this thread to redirect ad discussion up to the main ad reports thread.
