Yeah, me too.  I know it wasn't the same as now.  I think I would have remembered that.

It's definitely changed over the years.  We also added the 13-year checkbox.

I says, "I am at least 13 years old."  I think we added that one a year or two ago, but it wasn't part of the original design.

Duh!?  I should have known that. Cheesy

I think you are all doing a great job keeping this website together.  I looked around at a full page today, and decided I actually prefer the google ads between posts, rather than down the side.

I'm using Ablock Plus, a Firefox extension for blocking ads, and haven't seen an add in ages, in all of the sites I visit.

Adblock Plus is the way to go!!!!  Not a single ad anywhere and pages load a zillion times faster!  That's probably solve the OP's problem...well, the ad problem anyway.   Wink

I don't see any ads, really.  I got some text ads on the side that are very non intrusive.  I think I see one on the top of the main page.  I turned the ads off when it became an option for FoC.  I don't know if that option still exists, but I never regretted becoming an FoC.  I certainly wouldn't stop being an FoC because of a perceived attitude from a mod.  If you like a site, you support it - to help keep it around.

Adblocker is great indeed--I feel like I'm back on the "web1.0" when I look at pages on another computer that doesn't have it xD The net without ads is so much nicer xD

That said, I've always wondered, does adblocker reduce the revenue of the site posting those ads? Or does it coutn as if I had seen them?

One more totally unrelated thing, at the top of this page I am seeing "Craftster Community > NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTERNEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER > Craftster Itself >"
SHould that news and discussion be there twice?

If your project has any of these, don't be surprised to see me post in it! Cheesy
