If you visited the forum yesterday you may have noticed the appearance of adverts which happens when a forum is two weeks old. It is how Proboards can offer their free service, but they also offer an ad-free option for a small charge. Click HERE if you wish to read more about this service.
As a way of saying thank you to all members, I have now made Mary-Jess Forum ad free and I am very happy to continue to do so.
It has been a fantastic few weeks on the forum and I hope the community here will keep growing. I know that Mary-Jess really appreciates what we are doing here, and I hope that you all continue to enjoy the forum as much as I have done.
If that was the case Ken, I would have kept the ads on ;D
So far we have had a total of 1,637 visitors to the forum, 350 of those returning more than once. More people have visited the forum this past week than the first week, peaking on Thursday, when the concert reports and photos were posted. I am absolutely delighted and long may it continue.
That's great news and it looks like all of our hard work promoting Mary Jess through the various social media sites is starting to pay off. The more people who know about Mary Jess the better as she is still relatively unknown. For example, I had a text off my Facebook friend Hannah who is not much older than Mary Jess and despite also living in Gloucester had not heard of her. She does now thanks to us. I also noticed that Mary Jess Twitter followers have increased by 52 since the Forum was launched 2 weeks ago. Well done Mary Jess, it is all due to your continued support.
I know you have kindly made this site ad-free. For the last 3 days every time I enter site it is absolutely inundated with adverts - top, bottom and even getting adverts next to members posts. I have not had or got this problem with any other sites. I have got click here to make this board ad-free at bottom of all pages where they are asking for money. Surely this should not be happening. Is anybody else experiencing this? I would be grateful for your help with this as it is driving me crazy. Many thanks and thanks again for a great site.
The forum is once again Ad Free! I am happy to do this and will continue for the foreseeable future.
I fully intended to do this at the start of the month - I just completely forgot! I have the Ad Block Plus extension for Google Chrome (highly recommended) so I don't see adverts anyway except for when I access the forum with my phone, which I haven't in the past few days so thanks for letting me know.
I have kept Mary-Jess forum Ad-free for another month, I have been very happy to do this, however I am afraid after this month I may not be able continue with this, this is not permanent, I will review it on a monthly basis.
I apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. However I highly advise people to use the Google Chrome browser with the Adblock plus extension installed. Then you won't see adverts at all - on any website.
