Why all the ads?!?
 
What the f*ck is up with the insane amount of ads on JT as of late?! Great way to make people never wanna come here at all....

It is frustrating but as stated already by Kathleen, download Adblock Plus for free and it will stop that. Works on Chrome and took me about 5 seconds to download.

Spot on since.

Plus, this should be in NBJ part of the forum. Not in General Bon Jovi news.

It looks like Peter's forcing people to get the paid subscription for this site. He's added new scripts that redirect ad-blocker users away from Jovitalk. I'm guessing the increased amount of ads is related to this as well.

He doesn't seem to want to run the site, but he won't let anyone else run it either. We said we were happy to move the site to another country with cheaper servers (and pay the costs), but Peter wanted money, A LOT of money to "give up" the site. So, I guess this is his way of forcing people to choose to either pay to use this site or go somewhere else. A dick move, if you ask me, but it's his site.

I decided I'd just pay. In the end, this site has given A LOT to me. 10 Euros for a year is less than 2 beers. Well worth it.

(still a dick move!!)

I was just thinking - the ads might be ok for existing users, we'll find a way. But certainly it precludes any new users from joining the board. Who the hell would join a board where you feel like every click my turn into a malware download.

That IS SHIT!!!

Did not go away for me - just turned off AdBlock and it's bad. Peter probably stopped the pop-ups for the mods.

Clearly he doesn't want to run the board anymore and he has made it damn near impossible for anyone new to join. Sad :(

Just thinking out loud here--maybe it would be possible to reward long time users who have been registered for X amount of years and/or have X number of posts (showing active participation) with ad free accounts?
