@Alter_Ego – nope, no check or anything at all, except for being great forum members.
@stilllearning – why would I do this? Well, the ads have been rather unprofitable lately. So, I thought I may as well remove them for the people that contribute the most to the forum. Plus, the people that use the forum most are not typically the people that click on ads. I've been thinking about giving people an option to pay in order to remove ads, but am not sure if enough people would want to do that, or even how much it should cost.
I would be willing to pay a membership fee for no VIDEO ads. Those things make me crazy. If I go to a site that has them, I more often than not close the page and look for another site with the information I need.
There are two types of people in this world: Those who can extrapolate from incomplete data.
The video ad shows up about 10 seconds after I logged onto the site. Again when I go to any page. It is a 10 second video with an "X" on after the video is over. If I don't click on the "X" the video re-winds. and another video appears. If I click on the "X" after the video is over, it disappears until I go to another page of the forum. Right now I don't know if it appears throughout my WEB searches, but it does appear here
I just click on the ad and it appears to be from "FRIENDSCHECKER Advertisements.

@sojo917 – it sounds like you have some kind of malware on your computer, showing ads. Those are not coming from our end here. Eeek! Try using a malware removal tool. Hopefully that will fix the issue.
