Ads on SF?
« on: April 05, 2012, 08:08:57 pm »
After I came back today I found out that ads on the forum are increasing. For me, this really annoying advert called "Ads By Clicksor" are popping out at the bottom of the page..


How can we minimize this?

SF is in a fragile condition these days. It seems that even Astar has abandoned the forum.. If you use Chrome then download the Adblocker

Sorry, and thanks

Google has disabled our adsense account, and now we are using this new ads system (I assume it's a temporary change only)
Sorry for the inconvenience.

and as MU and Amelia said, you can download the Adblocker extension for chrome or firfox.
