On my iPad, I’m getting a barrage of pop-ups that frequently overlay site content and require clicking the X box to close so that I can see underneath. Then almost immediately another pop-up replaces it. Makes it very annoying to visit Canon Rumors.
I have pop-ups blocked in my Safari settings on my iPhone but I'm still seeing the ads on CR.Go to your iPad or iPhone Settings, scroll down to Safari and click Block Pop-ups. Problem solved.
I'd suggest that you propose that to craig. I doubt if donations or nominal fees would cover the cost of running the site, but they might make it possible to have fewer ads.Hi Folks.
I wonder how much revenue per person per annum these adds raise for Craig, assuming we see them and close them as soon as we can without clicking through (over 90% of the time, a few percent accidental click throughs that get stopped straight away and a couple of deliberate curiosity clicks in my experience).
I regularly donate to Wikipedia to keep it add free and available and I use that far less than Canon Rumours Forum, I would happily pay to use this site add free as the premium site as an option or preferably the whole thing.

A buy and sell forum is also possible, a Nominal fee could be charged to sell. There are issues doing that because of scammers, and the hassle they bring. The Forum software, Xenforo seems to cover donations and fees, so its a matter of Craigs preferences and the amount of work involved. More mods might be needed.
I think that Craig can't read everything, so its just sporadic. Dropping him a note with a link to the post would get his attention.Hi Mt Spokane.
I did mention this once before, I think it was in the run up to the platform change and I thought Craig said he was thinking about it, of course I might be remembering wrongly!
When I replied I thought this was the thread Craig was monitoring, it could perhaps be considered that the op posted in the wrong place as the Suggestions / Issues with the New CR Site thread would probably have been more suitable although it might be more likely to get lost in the mass that is there!
