Sponsored Posts

I noticed sponsored posts being added at the top of all the forums, I guess these are ads for those members paying to avoid ads.
Not really sure because if I click on any one of them all I get is this...

Seeing the same thing across 3 different forums. All of them are under the same ownership of course, so that's no surprise.

They are stuck between ďstickiesĒ and if you reload the page the title of the ad changes.
The powers that be must be behind this.
My Lifetime membership said No Ads. How about getting rid of these?

Well, they're not really ads in the eyes of the host.

Kinda like what the definition of "is" is. HA!

On my format I haven't gotten any of these yet. Wonder why. I use google as a server and web root as a spy ware.

I usually just open up Active Topics when I log on. They donít show up there so they are not really a bother. Itís the principle of it. No Ads should be No Ads.
Iím just not going to click on any of them anyway. Did it once to see what was what. Gave the owners probably $0.0002 for doing that. My contribution to those in charge.

They started showing up in between the sticky's on my pages now too.

And they're always in Bold Print near the top so they appear to be newly listed threads each time.

I ask that the forum owners step up and hold to what we agreed too and paid for. Lifetime member = no ads. Period.

I've found if I open a forum, say "SSR General Discussion" or "National Events" for instance, then read the threads and go to a different forum. if I come back to the first forum the Sponsored Threads will be different.

As a matter of fact just refreshing the page will change the Sponsored Threads.

Often wrong...... but never in doubt.

Because it's not a thread but a dynamically generated ad.

We have a thread running with the @Administrator similar to this one. They are not sure why these are showing up but they are happening in other sites as well. They are looking into it. I have referred them to this thread via a link so they can see what is being said here.

If I may add something that was strange the other day. While checking my email I had one come across supposedly from the SSRFANATIC site. The email and header looked correct, but when I opened it in a secure folder it was a viral ransom email that my security system shut down right away.


Didn't think much of it until these extra ads began popping up too.
Just a thought that maybe the server was hacked???????

You're right, my bad. Sponsored Post, not Thread.

You can pass this along although they probably don't need it.

Bruce, that's how I open questionable emails too. It was all coded jibberish so my security shut it down.
