I have a premium membership but in the last couple days all I see are ads, ads, ads. I thought with the premium membership you did not see the ads? Ads are not all that bad when they are not intrusive but when I open a forum I do not even see the forum, the entire top section is ads!!!

This is what I see with the browser zoomed out

adds on steelsoldier.jpg

When you zoom in with the browser, you have only a small band of a few adds, then the bar with forum options, then some internal remarks, then two big adds, then starts the rest.

To be honest, I don't even notice these adds anymore. As soon as I open the forum, I either go to my new notifications right top, or on the top bar click on what's new. Then it jumps there.

I don't know about zooming in, I have never changed anything and I never had this before. This is why I went to paying for the premium membership, to NOT have this. When I open a forum all I see are the ads on top, that is it, I have to scroll down to see whatever I selected.

Zoom function: quite easy: ctrl + and your browser zooms in so you can read what's there, ctrl - and you zoom out and can see the entire page at once.

Can you provide a screenshot of what you're seeing? The eastern and colony tire ads will remain even as paid membership, they're site sponsors. The ads that are removed are the googleads banners.

Ok, The Eastern and Colony ads are what I am seeing but I never had that before. And to have to scroll down a substantial amount just to get to the content is a pain. Sending a screenshot of what I see when I open a page. This is at 100% view, no zoom. I am an old guy so I am not going to have it zoomed out and then not be able to read the print.SS  Screenshor.png

Hmm I see some things to clean up. There were several break returns in the html between the banners. I've removed that now so they all tuck nicely together now.
Respectfully, it might need a bit more "tweaking". I see all these ads now:

I also see the sponsor ads but they are tighter together. It is strange I never got them before a few weeks ago. Guess it is something I will learn to live with.
