A few ads are one thing, these however are overwhelming. You really aren't understanding what I'm saying. I've noticed more ads since the supporter program showed up. So now you are generating income from the supporter program and from additional ads. Why not add features to the supporter program that will draw people other than the removal of ads.

Maybe Social Knowledge should get back into the business of social knowledge, rather than generating a profit or change it's name to Social Profit...

At $15.02/year you could easily pay all fees with under 200 paid members. Since the site claims to have over 35,000 members that shouldn't be a problem. Then you wouldn't need ads all over the place.

Come on, someone with good business sense is needed.

I'll state it again. Please remove the supporter association from my account.

I'm sorry that you feel that way.

I have removed your AA Supporter status from your account.

In the DC Metro Area? Check out GWAPA and WAMAS

I'm sorry you feel this way but wanted to let you know that the ads for unregistered members have been there for quite some time and all these things help keep the board up. Software, hosting, programmers, security - they all add up. Social Knowledge is the company that owns AA and it's not a big company. It's owned by one guy Andy R. Over the years Andy has worked to improve the forums features, speed and stability.

In many ways a forum is a partnership. Members are the topic experts and the site team guides the path of the community growth and structure. But as you have pointed out participation is not mandatory and in fact most forum users register (or not) and enjoy the content and get help from other members - all for free. Members helping other members continues to be the mainstay of Aquarium Advice.
