ADS Covering 40% of phone screens

  • We had an issue with background services between march 10th and 15th or there about. This meant the payment services were not linking to automatic upgrades. If you paid for premium membership and are still seeing ads please let me know and the email you used against PayPal and I cam manually verify and upgrade your account.
  • We have been getting regular requests for users who have been locked out of their accounts because they have changed email adresses over the lifetime of their accounts. Please make sure the email address under your account is your current and correct email address in order to avoid this in the future. You can set your email address at https://silvertails.net/account/account-details
  • Wwe are currently experience some server issues which I am working through and hoping to resolve soon, Please bare with me whilst I work through making some changes and possible intermittent outages.
  • Apologies all our server was runing rogue. I managed to get us back to a point from 2:45 today though there is an attachment issue i will fix shortly. Things should be smooth now though

Is this really the future of Silvertails - ads that take up 40% of the screen space

Beyond frustrating and these infuriating companies will be boycotted.

Dan, anyway of hiding these stupid ads?

Agree XV and very annoying especially when trying to post a comment. You click on the x to close it and no sooner another pops up. I understand Dan that ads now are a necessity but this is a little overkill the way as XV-1 says takes up so much screen space.

Mark is correct. Get the Premium Membership and your Forum experience will be much less frustrating.

Just pay the money. I'm sure you could put 50 cents a week in a jar for it. It's the decent thing to do for someone who has put his heart and soul and dollars into the site.

How do you go about getting premium membership?

Also thats fine for us regulars but do think some more occasional visitors could get turned off

Go to your icon at the top right and press on that and there will be a "account upgrades" option.

For ads that are intrusive let me know and I'll get them filtered out. I've noticed the same with the floating ad and I hate it

It's designed to be annoying as **** so you pay a membership. Membership isn't that much, and understand not everyone can afford it, so pay it or suck it really

I paid it.....didnt know it was an option till an hour ago but I dont like the rhetoric of just pay it.

From the sites view (Dan might tell me I'm an idiot) but you want revenue from rusted on regulars with membership but you also want high traffic with casuals which then contributes to ad sales. If ads become more invasive, casuals may just not visit.

From the users view, I think of a friend of mine, single parent, living week to week, budgeting to the absolute extreme. She wont buy herself a coffee out as not to waste money. $30 a year is an expense that is not critical. Surely the view for people like that shouldnt be suck it.

Anyhoo....carry on

The webcrawlers & data cross-referencing that goes on now is a worry though.

On my facebook feed an ad for a certain pharmaceutical company specialising in treating men's health issues pops up every now & then naming one or 2 of my matez as having "liked" them.

Given they seem to specialise in "kickstarting" bloke's "engines" & ensuring a "long drive" with "no troubles" I'd have thought a certain amount of privacy should be respected?

I think it would be situation that if @Dan had the bulk of regulars paying premium he mightn’t even need to have advertisements.

Maybe that’s not right but would be great to see
