I'll double check the code. Subscribers should not be seeing ads, but it seems like some/all still are.  ???

Here are a few examples if it helps...just a couple of different threads/pages while logged in, as well as very large ads underneath the main body which I didn’t snapshot.

When I access the site at home (Windows 10 + Google Chrome) I don't see any ads, however if I access the site on the DWAN I get the ads.

For the past 9 days, I've had ads:
- top of all pages, on my laptop
- top and bottom of my smartphone and tablet

I think the system knows I am single and wants to change that as I am getting this ad a lot

Ok,

There's not even an election. Do we need political advertisements?  :rofl:

A glitch I get every once in a while: if I click on "show unread posts" nothing come up but if I click on "show new replies to your posts" I get the list of new replies to topics I've posted in.  Kind of weird...  ???

Show unread posts has an implied "since your last visit" tacked on the end, whereas show unread replies will show topics you have posted in with new replies no matter how old. You can show all unread posts if you really want to be overwhelmed. :) (I have 95 pages of unread topics!)

Mike, just a quick comment. Notwithstanding the above discussion about ads, I've been very impressed with how well the site has been working since you did your magic a while ago. Just some positive feedback.

Thanks OldTanker! I can certainly remember a time - not that long ago - when we were seeing near daily issues with server stability and access. Not so any more, I am happy to say!

And yes, Fate has been officially Tempted. :)

Mac, OSX Mojave (10.14) / Chrome ... everything seems just fine. :salute:
It is ill that men should kill one another in seditions, tumults and wars; but it is worse to bring nations to such misery, weakness and baseness
as to have neither strength nor courage to contend for anything; to have nothing left worth defending and to give the name of peace to desolation.

I posted a request to have the Adam Picard thread unlocked and it seems to have vanished. Server issues, Mike?

garb11, the image is hosted here so it may have been an issue with their server. Seems to load OK for me. Might be that the site is blocked by whatever network your PC is connected to (e.g. DWAN), but loads over the unrestricted cell network.

One "server too busy" lockout at approx 0600 MST.
Apparently, a "USUAL SUSPECT"

“In peace there's nothing so becomes a man as modest stillness and humility; but when the blast of war blows in our ears, then imitate the action of the tiger; stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood, disguise fair nature with hard-favor'd rage.”

 Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and start slitting throats
