    I don't ever remember seeing adds when I was browsing the forums before I joined in December so I'm thinking it's pretty new.

    I had no idea this was happening. It's been reported.

    The ap update from TapaTalk is scheduled at the end of the month. Ads will change up then.

    I started showing ads to guest. I appreciate what you guys are saying as it came as a surprise.

    How do you feel this negatively impacts you? You are still advertising, you are still getting exposure, nothing in the terms of advertising has changed.

    I am willing to discuss this. I don't want anyone upset.

    As always, if you have any questions please feel free to send me an email or pm.

    You can very easily see how this negatively effects their businessses. Take a look and read the threads about this. Its a pretty basic concept I think anyone would understand.

    I have them turned off.

    It was not meant as a disruption and I apologize.

    Lets be real about this, when I pay for the sub-forum and then see a "guest" who is visiting the forum is being fed ads for another maker, in this instance an etsy amateur, it makes it look as though I am assocoiated with that maker in some way, shape or form. For the knife guys to see ads for competitive makers and importers, that is so very wrong on so very many ways. BTW Simply having a "guest" see those ads and not the general membership looks like something was trying to be hidden.

    As for me, I have given this a lot of thought over the past two days. Actually I have been comfined to the bed with a stomach bug of some sorts which gave me a lot of time to think. SInce my subscription is up for renemal, I wil not renew and you can go ahead and remove the sub-forum in its entirety.

    Austin just turned off the ads, see his post above yours.

    I feel your decision is a bit rash. Maybe think it over a bit more? Closing your subforum would be a real loss for this community.
