    Question on advertising banners

    Why is it that when I go to my profile page, the banner advertisements at the top of the page are not supporting vendors? The first time, I got a Kubota ad for zero turn mowers and the second time, an ad for Mercedes Benz. It seems as though that cheats our supporting vendors our of advertising space.

    Those ads are from the internet & not the forum. I do not see them on my computers, but I do if I use my phone or tablet.

    I thought all advertising on the forum was from supporting vendors?

    I got one for American Airlines. I hate the targeted ads , makes me want to go incognito more and more. Seems on GTT the "off ad" is only on the profile page?

    There is a simple and free way to deal with this, but the administration wouldn't like it so I won't say it here. I hate all unsolicited advertisements with a passion.

    I agree on both statements.

    I don't mind the ads because they only appear at the top of the page. I also don't mind the ads, because someone has to pay for this home away from home for us. I just think that the ads should be from the supporting vendors. I think there is some revenue from the companies whose ads appear on the profile page, but I would also think it would be minimal. Now, for the part in red, I'm talking out of my butt, because I'm not sure, but I think it is right.

    I'll clarify what I can here. The forum is owned by VS, and they make all the decisions regarding both vendor and non-vendor advertising.

    GTT does not have pop up ads, if you are getting popups that you have to close then you may have a virus or other problem on your computer.

    The banners at the top of the page (including profile pages) are usually supporting vendors but may be other ads VS has chosen as well. Those vendors do get their own forums here to discuss their products and services. On the main forum page, over on the right side there is an ad. It may not be a vendor ad, it may be something else that VS has chosen to run there. You may also see an ad in threads, right below the first post. Again, this may not be a vendor ad.

    I don't know if that answers the question or not, but it's all I've got.
