    Hey, Sam.

    I don't have an Ad Blocker of any kind on the computer in the garage, it is kind of old/ancient though, half the ads don't display properly for some reason (nor do the youtube videos).

    But i'm getting the little timmy plea everytime i go to a new page (just on the garage computer) even though i'm not intentionally blocking the ads.

    You shouldn't be seeing anything on every page load.  What browser and version are you guys using?

    IE7 on the garage computer. The little timmy ad doesn't seem to be showing up as much today (once so far)

    My laptop? No clue what version of IE is on it (whatever came with Windows 7), i only saw the timmy ad on it once in the last 2 weeks or so.

    I think the timmy ad for supporter status is only once every 50 days or so.  I don't really see why it would show up every page view since it logs when it has shown.  Let me know if it keeps doing that.

    I just got the 'please don't active the ad blocker' thing.....does that me I have it activated?  I honestly don't know if I have it activated or not, but I often access RCC from work (like everyone else) and it is very likely the firewalls here block automatically.  Honestly I've no idea if I have ads blocked or not...
    I see the little ads at the top-right hand corner of most threads - does that mean I do not have ads blocked?

    I look at RCC a lot on my iPhone, and I recently got the Tapatalk app which allows me to go on the forums and stuff. I don't see ads on there, but I did pay like $3 for the app. Does any of that get kicked back to RCC? And how does the lack of ads on their effect the site?
    I create feelings in others that they themselves don't understand.

    It could be the firewall, or even security setttings on the computer.  If it is on your computer from work don't worry about it :)

    We get no kickback from tapatalk, we are have tapatalk formatted here to make RCC easier to use on the phones.  Lack of ads on the mobile platforms doesn't hurt RCC much.

    I have never seen a pop up on here but do have the popup blocker enabled in IE8. I have been clicking on the GoPro ad every morning and entering their contest. Does that help? And how about the ads on the left side does the site benefit from a click on them?
    And Sam, Can you Fix the Time? It seems that posts are way out of time, not just Eastern /Pacific but like many hours?
    Let us know what helps.
