Someone, logged in only as a "guest" apparently for anonymity's sake, has generously stepped up and bought us Nutz some time freed from Proboards' banner ads. Our sincere thanks go out to whomever is responsible for this kind and generous donation!
We estimate we will probably get about 3-4 weeks of ad-free viewing, based upon our average numbers of monthly page views here. When the purchased time for ad-less pageviews finally expires, the faucet will be turned back on by ProBoards, and the banner ads will reappear. We are activating the ad-free blocks as of July 1.
Ad-free viewing will be available to both members and guests, since a guest was our benefactor this time. In the future, if a member should similarly donate ad-free page views, we will limit it to members only unless the patron PMs the staff to tell us to open it up to all.
Well folks, day one of Ad-free. I put up some fireworks on the default theme to celebrate the upcoming US holiday but I reckon we can use them to celebrate the temporary independence from ads, as well.
Yeah, thetragichero, we don't have anywhere near the posting activity we had in the early days but there are tons of page views so apparently lots of folks use the forum for reference material. I reckon much of it is in Guitar Wiring and the Schematics section. And of course recently the Pickup Testing and Modeling sub-board has become a key destination.
