Well straight up, there's a plethora of ad-blockers out there and if that's how you roll then no need to read any further.
At the moment we don't attempt to counter ad-blockers - but our official position on this is 'never say never'.
One day we may remove all forum access to those using ad-blockers.
--------------------------------


Last updated: May 2021

--------------

There are three (3) ads which can be removed
  • There are up to three display (banner) ads on every forum page.
  • Active registered members of this forum are rewarded by having each of the three ads progressively removed in three steps between 50 & 1000 contributing posts during their free trial period*.
There is one (1) hidden forum to reveal
  • There is extra forum topic to reveal PLUS permission to post classifieds in the Gear Swap section.
  • Active registered members of this forum are rewarded by having 'The Bear Pit' topic revealed at the first step, plus access is granted to post classifieds in Gear Swap during their free trial period*

------------------------------

First Unlock: 50 Posts --or-- 100 days of membership.
  • The first display ad is removed from the bottom of every forum thread page.
  • Permission to send Private Messages to other members is granted.
  • Permission to post offers in Gear Swap is granted.
  • Pavilion topic group is revealed.

Second Unlock: 350 Posts
  • The second display ad is removed from the top of every forum page.

Third Unlock: 800 Posts
  • The third and final display ad is removed from the center of every forum thread page, making your experience on these forums 100% ad free.

The Offer: a.k.a shameless sales pitch.
  • For just $11 per annum -- OR -- $6.05 for four months, a Silver Subscription will remove all ads from these forums at anytime prior to reaching 800 posts.
  • Ideal for lurkers & slow posters who will take years to reach 800 posts
  • Ad-free means just that, all ad-tech is removed and these forums load sooooo much faster - especially on mobile phones. Once you try you will never go back.


* Note: At 1000 posts, members are compulsorily required to upgrade to a Silver subscription or Rebirth. See 'How membership works on these forums'

Anyone considering a membership - do it. There's so much knowledge and solid content on here, it's the best $11 you'll spend all year.

Spoiler alert - none of the good content is posted by myself.

Thanks for keeping the place going, Richard!

Just bought the 4 month! God I wish I got a 12 month upgrade!!!

Shoulda been first, huh!

@ $6:05 it's still a good deal right! $1:51 per month, 0.05c per day. Cost you less than your last beer is my guess.

Maybe if you report back in this thread with nice things to say in a few weeks I'll see if I can stretch the budget. @CarveMan might have to give up one of his beers at next year's shin-dig for you.

I dont understand.
I post a lot and continue to see almost a daily ad for what I only assume is a medical supplement to cure constipation titled DJOTD.

I dont suffer from constipation but whenever I see the above it really gives me the shits.
