NOT a fan of these margin ads, and all evening the pages have been taking a really long time to load. Have to keep prodding with "go to" or refresh. Don't know if it's because of all the stuff on the page, or a system thing. I'm the only one in the house online right now, too! This does not make me want to buy the stuff taking up my forum space and bandwidth.
hate to sound negative but..

Always thought about becoming premium member but the number of ads now and reduced size of the posts have compeled me to finally upgrade my membership. Can somebody show me where to go to becomes a Premium Member
Here ya go!!! http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/payment.php
Have a great day
Apparently, we sold a site skin ad to Tropicana orange juice. I love Tropicana orange juice.. especially with the pulp in it but I have to say that yellow is not my favorite color
Huddler handles all of the advertising for us and I do appreciate that, it frees me up to do what I really want to be doing instead of fussing with advertisers.
The premier membership really is the way to go if you are bothered by the advertising.. The advertising does pay the bills but I can certainly understand not wanting the ads to be in the way.
When you become a premier member, you have the option to turn off all of the advertising and it is a really nice feature.
Just go to "MY PROFILE" and click on "Edit Account Details" Scroll to the bottom of the page and place a checkmark in the box that says "Turn Off Advertising".
Premier memberships can be purchased at http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/payment.php
I didn't have any scans or downloads going on, and closed my other windows. maybe just some local glitch but it's still a little jerky this morning.
Thanks for that, Al! That's a big help, and will speed things up at least a bit.
No problem.. I completely understand!
Well BarbeQueen, You sold my membership.
Huddler got it changed over right away to premier and the option to block advertising came up in minutes. Just remember to pay with a credit card, if you do bank debit Paypal says it takes a couple of days to transfer funds.
Thanks for your response Jeff, it is nice having a full size page to read and respond to posts.
Look forward to meeting you at N Florida Gathering

Just purchased a 2 year Premier Membership.....thanks Tropicana! I too usually like the advertisements (and Tropicana OJ - with Pulp) and sometimes find something to buy, but this skin ad is killing my eyes with the yellow and smaller writing.
