Since they're putting ads in the middle of the threads now, they should share the wealth with the content creators.  I bet a lot of people can't even afford half the stuff they're being used to market.

Hmm, interesting.

I think, a lot of people use Adblock or something so they have no ads.

I enjoy the fact that someone is wasting his money displaying ads in which I have absolutely no interest that I have absolutely no interest in :)

Two or three hours spent thinking and reading documentation solves most programming problems.

SImply BLOCK "ads.supplyframe.com" with either an ADD blocker or even at your router / modem.

Not sure about how they could share money with me when I never see them in the first place but hey I would take it.

It may not be the answer you were looking for but its the one I am giving based on either experience, educated guess, google or the fact that you gave nothing to go with in the first place so I used my wonky crystal ball.

Ad revenue probably barely covers the cost of the hosting anyway. If you want to monetize yourself, start a Patreon

It was a bit tongue in cheek.  A stab at the ads more than anything.

No, not pay us for looking.  They should pay us for page views.  Think youtube.  Every time someone looks at your thread they get served some ads and you get a couple pennies for attracting them to see the ad.  We could make this place the new instagram, with *influencers* coming to start uninteresting threads with very interesting titles pushing instructables that don't work.  It would be great.

So that means we don't need moderators and we become just another of those spammy blog things...SO glad this one is in bar sport.

Most of our stuff is uninteresting already to the wider world...Its like Geeks Plus.

And should be taken only in that context.  If I were serious I would have posted in Suggestions or Website.

We keep the moderators.  We start paying them too.  They make sure that all the posts are at least tangentially about Arduino. 

You know, sex sells.  But we don't want people just posting a bunch of porn vids to get views.  But if some of the toys involved are Arduino controlled...  The moderators can figure all of that out.

Interestingly enough, I have only seen the same one or two ads marketing... "Arduino Engineering Kit". Not sure what they think I'm doing here. :P

I'm just glad they're not the popup type of ads.

Wait how did you turn that around so quickly.

Note to self ... Add Delta to the perv list but make sure it is just below myself.
Not being outdone on this one.
