    I thought that by paying x amount of pounds that the site would be ad free...
    I have just started being polluted by ads again....
    Is this right?

    Sorry there was an issue that for security reasons I won't elaborate on and the fix temporarily broke the ad exclusion code. It should be working as expected now

    I updated one of the templates to fix a potential security issue and it broke one of the conditional loops relating to some of the ads. Should be fixed now

    Can you paste screenshots of the whole page so I can check as the option to check a users permission in Xenforo doesnt work on the ad permissions

    Should be fixed. Took a bit longer than I wanted as I was snowed under and we there is also that dupe post issue I'm working on.

    Anyway I'm trying to find a better solution so template upgrades don't conditional loops in random templates which can see other users to get the unregistered users ads

    I can't really say exactly as it is page dependent and it also depends on what ads are available.

    In general, though unregistered people get 2 near the top of the page, 3 near the bottom on most pages. And then one every 3 posts on a thread. About 60% of the site's daily visitors aren't registered yet take up a massive amount of resources so that gets them to pay their way

    Standard Registered people get 1 at the top 2 at the bottom on most pages and then one every 5 posts. They account for 35% of our daily visitors so don't have verified the status

    About 240 of you have verified status and get 1 ad at the bottom of the page (although we may move that to the top). Verified status is activated when you have been registered a month and made a set amount of posts in total. Verified status can expire if you have too many active warning points (banned people shouldn't be able to surf the site and not get ads) or if they don't maintain a fairly small monthly posting amount (Anyone doing the prediction league will almost have enough posts just by entering each game)

    Hmm it should be showing one or the other as I'm running an a/b test on which performs better.

    It’s only showing one on my test account but I'll take a look into what could be going wrong when I can get on a pc rather than a tablet
