are the ads terrible? can we get rid of the ads?
« on: July 01, 2023, 08:50:55 PM »
Man trying to use the site without an ad blocker is annoying.
Do you guys hate them as much as I do?

This place needs a facelift and I think the ads should be the first to go.
Thoughts?

I'd be good if the ads went away

Iím using the old app and I have no ads at all. Itís beautiful ! I never thought about it until now but Iíve really enjoyed being on the site and never seeing and ad. So nice to check in and see great posts from members without distractions. I guess the app is no longer available which is a shame.

Hi Troy !

My wife loves your KFC video haha. And it was damn tasty.

Agree with @getlego if the app were available again it would be great.  Iím about ready for an iPhone upgrade which will take away my ability to use the app I downloaded over 3 years ago.

**Edit**

I got a new iPhone 13 (work) and just downloaded the app!  Thanks @Troy for making it available again!

I'm working on the app, there are a number of obstacles, but I'm working on them now.

I'm going to make ads go away as well... or at least get rid of the super annoying ones!!

nah man, thank you for sticking around through the times where I haven't been doing enough.

I feel bad for being so absent and am going to make it right.

I typically only get two ads per visit, unless it doubles and I get duplicate threads (as I scroll down, I go through the same posts in the same order twice).

Everyone hates ads. But thereís also a reason they are there, these things arenít free.

I would say ads arenít terrible for me. Iíve seen far FAR worse, where an ad is in every picture posted and those are unusable.
