No ads! That was one of my motivations for making this forum was getting rid of all the pesky ads you see that begin to overrun other forums. My other reason for making this forum was to create a better user interface. You see how easy it is to upload photos and everything? That's how it should be!
Maybe at some point years from now I'll have banner ads on the forum (just on the top), but I'll only have a very small area, nothing huge or 'in-your-face'. I didn't make this forum to make money off of, so the only thing I ever have to pay for really is the cost of running it (i.e. web hosting fees for the server, etc.).
I love this forum aswell! I like how its got updated software and the others are a little outdated. But why don't you guys just get ad block? It blocks the ads on every single webpage. I haven't seen a single ad in like 5 years now. Its a simple browser add-on!
I use Adblock, don't get me wrong. However, most of the sites that are running all those ads are bloated as hell which make for slow loading times.
In addition to that we've all see how complicated it can be on some forums to upload pictures. Not to mention most of them are running software that is really out of date. This forum makes it easy to do just about anything, including linking to your social media accounts.
I only launched the forum just a month ago so right now I am just trying to get the word out. It's happening slowly but surely, so if you know anyone with a Jeep be sure to spread the word!
