Honestly, unless a post grabs my attention the that forum, I don't click.
TBH, a central listing of vendors would be good. I dunno what it would take to make that happen, but even a page with their banner ads that are clickable?
Sure, ad-blocking software does a great job at blocking ads, but it also blocks useful features of our website like our supporting vendors. Their ads help keep Steel Soldiers going. Please consider disabling your ad blockers for the site. Thanks!
