that ad at the top is excessively enormous. Can't it go on the side or something?

I think the point of it is to be obvious and draw your attention, and maybe get you to go to that website and use that particular product, therefore the reason that company pays this website to have that advertisement, so they can make money. It goes away if you're a site contributor, just fyi.

no **** captain obvious.. you'd think I knew that with over 11,000 posts.. my sub apparently ended 3 months ago so rick just axed it.. and I'm not renewing it. And yea, lets advertise Google.. because by some random act of god someone might not know what google is.. And hey look, A Chevy ad on a FORD forum, thats good ****.. Look I got a Chevy but I didn't need a stupid ad to do so.

and the price went up.. for what reason?

99ranger4x4, by becoming a site contributor ads disappear and there are more bonus features as well.

Hope that helps.

Matt....the sub automatically axes itself when it's up. No one actually manually axes it.

You're welcome, glad I could help. 11000 posts and your still an ***. I didn't like the ads, so I paid to get it removed. You can do the same, and you know that, but you're still b*tching about it?

Oh yea?

Just a heads up, your sub has expired:
01-20-2009 to 01-20-2010

Thanks for the support. I've adjusted your account back to regular status.

if you renew, i can send some decals out to you.

Cheers

Rick
And I know I got the contrib status after I went wheelin back in February so I could have the bigger avatar.. i had no use for it before that. I'm not sure where the Jan, 20 part came from.

cause post count is supposed to lessen the *** part.. ok and yea, Its annoying they would still be seen on the side of the screen but you wouldn't have to scroll down to see anything..

If you had been around longer you would know why I paid in the past but don't feel the need to now. I paid to help the site out, now Rick has ads to pay him, and yet he wants more money for the contrib status.

I agree. Having to scroll down is precisely why I wanted them gone. Being on the side you would definitely still see them.

Yea, I liked the look of the triple X one the best, so I chose it, and that was pretty much the only reason, haha.

Its a subscription. Subs auto renew. When the site went through its changes, Christian canceled all the subs. The other option is you canceled.

All subs auto renew and its outlined in Paypal, the payment page and the sign up page so that there is no confusion.

I just remember there being an option.. Because the first time I setup my subscription It ended on me, and I had to manually redo it.

Threads been answered, clearly its not in the best interest of this site to circumvent its only source of income to keep it going.

If you wish to renew, that is awesome and appreciated. If not, don't cheapen and ruin the environment for others.

Thanks again for those of you who do support the site and remember, yearly subs also get you decals :)

Thread closed, annoying ad questioning has been answered.
