Ads or no ads?

Post by itoh on September 22nd 2012, 10:46 pm

My father searched on the Internet for a free, no ads forum and was told that forumtk.net was a free/no ads forum. We began to create my forum and then noticed a large banner ad across the top of the forum. Isn't this an ads free forum? Or was that "false" advertising?
How do we get rid of that large intrusive banners that keep showing which have nothing to do with my forum content?
We presume then that this forum is not ads free and you have to pay to get rid of it. What is the charge to get rid of the banner ad and how long is it in effect? And how soon is are the banner ads removed after payment?

(Very confusing and time consuming indeed.)

#2- We also notice when we move the cursor over to the right side of the screen 9in far righ column) on all pages, a pop-up (floater) appears saying "Merry Charistmas." How do we get rid of that pop-up?

Please advise and thank you for your assistance.

You have to pay to get rid of ads, nothing is free. Go to your ACP>MISC>CREDITS MANAGEMENT>BUY/OBTAIN CREDITS

2. by telling someone about your merry christmas issue does not help. Are you talking about on your forum? or on the support forums, or on your ACP?
a visual. I believe you have another post somewhere else on the forums on this issue.

And hey a banner is better than pop ups. Also the prices are not that bad at all for a forum. buying a Vbulletin license is i believe $200 and thats just for the license

AS I mentioned, this is what we saw on the Internet:L "Free forum - Free forums No ads - Forumtk.net," and that is why we thought it had no ads. Just a simple question we had.

Went to the Buy Credits page and it has 500 credits for $5.95. What does that mean exactly? Does that remove banner ad at top of forum for 500 views, or something else.

Also, the "Merry Chirstmas" I am talking about is on the forum we were trying to set-up. If we move cursur to right side of page, "Merry Christmas" floats on the scree, and when we move the cursor out of the right side of screen, that message goes away.

Sorry if we are asking seemingly stupid questions, but all of this is new to us and quite confusing.

So one year would be $11.90? (Supposedly, Forumer has 30,000 views for $5.00.)

What does that mean exactly? Buy credits states:"500 credits for $5.95."
Does that mean the forum would be banner free for 500 views (or 6 months) for a cost of $5.95? And for 1000 views (or one year) cost would be $11.90?
(I've been told that Forumer has 30,000 banner-free views for $5.00. As seniors living on small fixed income, we have to be careful with our money.)
