    For clarity, I am on iOS and I am specifically talking about when you first open the app and the game advertisements comes up. You have to wait 5 seconds for the little "X" to show up (and is never in the same corner) and press it to get into the actual forum. I realize that you guys have to make money, I would just like the option to pay to make it go away. If I am the only one that feels this way, then it's not a real big deal.

    Apologies for the bad experience, and thanks for more specificity. I will pass it along.
    I'm using an Android OS and haven't experienced this ad.

    I get better results with not leaving any space between the colon and the URL; that restricts the search to only results at that website. Putting a space in allows results from other sites.

    But by all means people should try both methods for themselves.

    My mistake; that should have been:

    A Google search on --> site:insideevsforum.com [insert subject or word string here]

    Malwarebytes has a new app for phones/tablets (at least iOS ones). The free version has ad blocking.

    I know they have to make money. I just want to pay them a fair amount to make these stupid ads go away. Am I the only one who sees these annoying ads each time you open the app and have to wait 5 seconds before the ‘x’ appears to make it go away? IMG_4095.JPG

    I did get one the other day myself. Had to wait a few seconds.
    From what I understand, we hoping to change the company that serves us ads, which should stop this sort of total screen hijack.

    Again, apologies for the poor experience.

    I agree that the mandatory pop up ads when I use the app are annoying enough that I don't use the app anymore. I use safari browser for iphone and ipad.

    Yeah, here’s the one I just got...but I’ve become accustomed to this when the app is free. Perhaps a aid version?

    Well, at the very least you got an EV ad. I just tried the app and got what seemed like a dating site for conservatives.

    I understand there will be some changes to our advertising on the site soon, so hopefully that will yield an improvement.

    Did something change (for worse) with the ads? All of a sudden I'm getting a banner on every page and thread that I open, with instruction to "Subscribe for No Ads". Subscribe to what??

    amy2421: You will now be required to pay for ad free service. Pretty typical of sites like this.

    $20.00 US

    Subscribed
    Benefits include:
    1. Post for sale and wanted ads in Classifieds
    2. No Ads!
    3. Access to private forums
    4. Create your own signature

    *yearly subscription, NO recurring payments

    Eventually they will parse the data and sell to individual car companies just like any other data. Read their privacy statements...anything posted on here becomes their property. Folks need to understand this.

    Gotta love it.

    Wow. When did this start?

    I noticed it two days ago. If you haven't, read the privacy policies of this site. Thats why I keep things generic.

    Sorry, a bit slow to respond to this thread. I didn't have electricity and internet for a few days because of the hurricane.

    So, yes. We've changed our ad supplier, so the ads should be more relevant to our members. The one that pops up at the bottom of the page is annoying, so I'll see if changes can be made to that.

    Yes, we are offering subscriptions now, which will get rid of the ads and offer other benefits.

    I haven't heard anything about selling data. Will inquire.

    Hi, Amy. It just started last week and we had a couple of bugs to work out. We'll go over it in the upcoming newsletter.

    I subscribed! I still see ads! :) Happy to support this site.

    Thank you!
    Apparently, we have a bug with Paypal we need to work out. Hopefully, it will be fixed tomorrow. If your subscription doesn't kick in properly in the next couple days, shoot me a message in case there's a separate issue.

    @Domenick - noticed that No 4 link is missing 'https://' - was trying to open up the SB PDFs and could not log into the forum. Finally caught that the link was not secured.

    Also, it may be a good idea to collect the PDFs of all SBs and put them in the first post? Currently looking for 18-091 for example.. TIA.
