    The gold membership eliminated all that. Worth the price for that reason alone..

      Not sure if I would say "all"
      When I'm on the computer, yes.
      But when I'm on the phone there are still banners popping up on the bottom all the time

        Yeah I noticed that started recently with the mobile version, not a fan at all. That's one of the reasons I'm a gold member, so I don't have to see ads. Works great on the desktop, but the ads that scroll with the content on the mobile site are annoying for sure.

        I should probably just spend less time on here, clear out my "conversation" box and save my money.

        I'm a Gold member and continue to see ads in between actions (such as clicking an interesting title on New Posts). It opens an entirely separate window to show me a Chevy truck ad, University of Phoenix, and a bunch of assorted crap I couldn't care less about. I had to click "Continue" from an ad just to post this reply. It only happens while using my phone ... and it's very tiresome. I don't see such ads on the FBBO site. They apparently can't be blocked or shut off either; clicking on an ad brings me to their site, and clicking on the "x" in the corner loads my Ad Choices. Unfortunately, "I never want to see this shit" is NOT an option.

          Like I have been saying, one of these days the damn ads are going to make the internet not worth using.
          It's already at the point that browsers won't allow navigation until the ads on a page load and sometimes they just don't.
          The ads come from an outside source, so the speeds that they load at have zero to do with the actual website we are on.
          This means that if the website the ads are coming from is not up to the task of quickly loading the ads, whatever website you are navigating is basically going to be that slow also.

          Looks like it was an error on my part. Should be fixed now.

            Actually... The sponsor ads on the right side haven't really changed since the site software switch. In fact, they should be faster because I am actively making them lighter and faster to load. Additionally, they are cached which means loading them should be even faster yet. The only thing that really is different is that they are being configured a little differently - being horizontal instead of vertical.

            I'm not a gold member so I can't really bitch, but this
            is the only site I'm on that takes forever to load.
            Its so slow sometimes I just give up and go somewhere else.
            I took FABO off my homepage because it took forever to load.

            Sorry to hear that. For many the site loads pretty quick overall.

            There are MANY factors that can affect how fast the site loads, most of which I can do nothing about. For example, the internet connection your using, how your browser is configured, if you have toolbars or extensions on your browser, if you keep your software updated, if you have malware on your computer, stuff like that.

            The "this is the only site I visit that does that" point really means nothing. That's not meant to sound rude, but honestly I hear that kind of point made all the time, and so does everyone else who runs a website. Do all those sites you visit have all the same features as we do? Are they as secure as ours is from hackers? Are they as busy as we are? Do they have as many new posts as we do every day? It really is like comparing apples and oranges.

            I can speed things up a lot for some of you by not allowing the oversize photos you guys love to upload, or by making you click a link to view them...

            This website isn't free to operate. It costs me a lot of money to run it, and running these sites is my full time job. I'll be spending about $8,000 on a new server for just this forum in about 6 months. Those costs are paid for by 2 things... Ads and Gold members. I only mention this in the hope some of you will have a little better understanding.

                I hope you know I was just stating a fact with my last comment.
                I am not unhappy with your service of which I partake of for free,
                I was just trying to let you know how slowly things can load, I run
                a stripped windows 10 on a desktop with a i5 processor and 8 gig memory.
                It's really fast with the service I use.

                All and all this site ROCKS and I enjoy it.

                I just hit control+ until the adds disappear,and at least those are out of sight.But I think I see them at the bottom then.And the top one(s) is still there.
