I think I hate trying to pimp everyone out for cash more than everyone hates me bugging them about it. So, here's my thought...

I'm going to put the ads back on the site. If you run an ad blocker, please remember to donate from time to time.

Perfectly fine with that. And I will donate eventually but for now I will click on ads to do my share.

cool with me but do they have to be between every single post?

I never mind online ads but these make the site unreadable

They're only after the first post, the fifth post and the last post. I'll take out the fifth post.

Is that fixed now? I don't see it in subsilver or prosilver.

Also, I got "Active Topics" added back to the breadcrumb bar. :D

ahh...gotcha.

Unfortunately, I've found how to append something to the breadcrumbs, but I don't see where I can modify the breadcrumb itself.

Continuing the discussion from the game thread, this is one of the ads that keeps redirecting me from the site. It happens probably 1/3 of the time when I click on a thread.

Using Safari on iPhone

Agreed. I get ads, but the redirects are pretty annoying.

I'll try to get that fixed today or tomorrow.

I'll have to post back here after I make a change, though, because I don't have an IOS device for testing and it appears to be the only place it is happening.

I sent in a help request ticket to the ad provider. I'll update here as soon as I get a response.

It's been a great month for NSB(B), even if the Cubs have been pretty meh lately. Duke is killing it on the front page, Goony is killing it on Twitter, I got a batch of board enhancements done earlier in the month, I got the prospect ranking system up and running and traffic is trending the right way again.

The ad revenue has been fairly solid this month, but if you're one of those that uses ad blocker, I'll ask you to please contribute to the cause every once in a while.

Thanks!
