    I think I got you all fixed up. MikeTru -- It was a bad date on the cookie. Let me know if you still see ads.

    The ad blocking question is answered in full here https://pitmaster.amazingribs.com/fo...-being-blocked

    We do not consider the "Spotlight" on the right to be an ad. It is not from a third party and we are not paid for the products we recommend. The Spotlight is important because we used to get a ton of questions "Can you recommend a gas grill" etc. These are products we love. We consider it a reader service. And yes we MIGHT get a finder's fee if you click the lin k, but I can assure you, our selections are made with YOU in mind, not us.

    How can I stop this ad from showing up on the free side? I am signed on the Pitmaster paid side but I keep getting this pop-up.

    I don't even notice the sidebar really. If something new shows up it will catch my eye a few times then disappear with the others.
    If I need/want something I know where to look; side bar or free side.

    I don't think many people buy the shirts so removing them is OK. I already tol Ray to can them.

    I like the ads. They are a constant MCS temptation.

    Yeah, if it’s removed then something else will be in its place. Also, the products we love “ads” don’t bother me. In fact I used it to buy my SnS. Once you’ve visited a few times, it’s just in the background for most of us. The blinking “How to Support Amazing Ribs” is a little annoying and distracting. But only the blinking aspect, not the actual ad.

    Meathead . I would leave the shirt and support promo's on the right sidebar. I don't consider it an issue. I have trained myself not to pay too much attention to that sidebar as I scroll down the page. I would suspect that is common with the bulk of people frequenting the site.

    I have asked Ray remove the promo for shirts from the right sidebar and the "How To Support AmazingRibs.com" promo.

    I forgot to mention: We do not allow video or animated ads even though they pay a lot.

    They could write those killer recipes in Wingdings font and have pop ups for dollar shave club and I’d still frequent.

    Should be NO 3rd party ads anywhere on the site if you are a member unless you are blocking cookies. Read this https://pitmaster.amazingribs.com/fo...-being-blocked

    You should not see 3rd party ads anywhere, even on the free side unless you are blocking cookies. All the stuff on the right side is from us, not 3rd parties. That is what we promise when you join. No 3rd party ads. If you are seeing 3rd party ads, read this and let's make them go away
    https://pitmaster.amazingribs.com/fo...-being-blocked

    1) Please note: Even for non-members, there are NO ads within the text of the articles except on phones which have only one column. Not many website have no ads within the text. Those ads pay more but we don't take the money. We confine all ads to the periphery. We leave money on the table but we don't like interrupting the content.

    2) About the right column: In our member survey we were shocked to learn that a lot of members didn't know about the Meat-Up In Memphis which is an event we are doing primarily for members, so we kinda think that promoting it here is OK. OK? Out of 400 spaces only 28 are left so a lot of members will be there.

    3) We don't make a penny on the bowling shirts, and only a few pennies on the T-shirts. The Spotlight features products we genuinely love and we show them to you. A lot of you own Pit Barrels and KBQ and Thermapens etc and I'm betting you heard about them here first. This feature is pretty low on the page. Yes, we make a small finder's fee. Helps pay the bills and for my Porsche. Seriously, no sports car. 10 year old Subaru.

    And as you can tell, we haven't spent any money on fancy design and cute bells and whistles. Money goes to content and functionality.
