I went to download it, and IE says this type of file may harm my computer?!

You should be fine, give it a try

This subject has been moved to Off Topic, evidently because it has nothing to do with model cars. Go figure.

I know.  Seems to me the mods get a bit carried away sometimes.

After I downloaded and installed it, I have no ad banners now.

My big question is... if the admin people pin all their topics about the forum in General, why do member questions and observations about the forum get booted into Off Topic? Maybe the "How to Use" this board section should be expanded to "Forum Rules and Discussions."

Is it just my computer or does everyone have the same thing. Now when you open one of the categories the second thread down is an advertisement. I know it pays the bills but I prefer it be in an innocuous corner somewhere.



I just discovered when you open a thread it's on every one. Very annoying.

General is near the top of the forum list, Off Topic is down near the bottom and you have to scroll to get to it... by putting it in Off Topic, they are hoping most people don't see it.. :)

Well, blocking the ads kind of defeats the purpose of putting the ads in there...

Why not let "they" say something about the ads before coming up with a conspiracy  theory.Like I said before something has to pay for the site.no more free ride.To all the people that are annoyed, that word was used a lot,its not that bad. Ads are every where else in life so big deal

Uh, if I remember correctly, you guys are the ones that wanted an "off topic" section and wanted the "General" section to be model/automotive related ONLY.

 

REMEMBER??? YOU GUYS WANTED IT THAT WAY.

 

So we gave you what you wanted. And now you're crying about it.   :rolleyes:

Here's a great alternative to all of those folks who are annoyed by the ads: 

 

Send Gregg a (good) check for a hundred bucks.  After all the annoyed people do that, he can probably remove the revenue-producing ads. 

 

Me?  The ads don't bother me.  I just ignore them like I ignore certain people.  ^_^

You miss the point.  By the logic of separating General from Off-Topic, Gregg's pinned board admin theme posts should be in Off Topic also.
