phpbb.com ads, why not?

Post by aster59 » Wed Mar 08, 2017 11:00 am

I'm just curious, why doesn't the phpbb team place ads on its support forums?
When I installed phpBB, it said VigLink would help support the developers via my forum.
If they want support, why not put ads here too or on the documentation pages?

There are ads -- at the very bottom under the "ADVERTISEMENTS" label

I see nothing under the Advertisement label. I don't think I have an ad blocker. But I like it empty.

Code: Select all

<a class="ads-button-hosting"
You definitly have one when elements disappear that start with ad in their attribute values.

The problem is probably not my English but you do not want to understand correctly.

Maybe we should put on our black hats and change that to definitely-dont-block-this.
