    Angry Ads for admin costs?

    Simple get rid of the greedy admin and replace with a volunteer Admin, i've run many websites and forums, once it's setup it's costs are minimal apart from the hosting obviously, but that is not why you said you wanted to run ads is it.

    The development of the forum ie: updates are made and uploaded by vBulletin, all you have to do is ftp them to the correct directories.

    Ad blocker will steer me clear from your unwanted ads anyway

    So please don't insult me and many other with the pretence of why your going to be doing ads, it's for revenue simple as that.

    Nice one just hope Ad blocker doesn't deliberately copy my passwords or credit card details.

    Ad-Blocker is great, been using it (and Ad Block +) for years.

    I too use Ad-Blocker and have done for many years.

    Any site that doesn't allow me to use it, never gets visited again - simple.

    I too have run websites and forums I agree with you GG.

    Adverts are for making money, nothing else and IME have ALWAYS destroyed good forums as a result.

    A better system is to ask for voluntary donations or charge a minimal membership fee.
