Is it just me, or have the adverts at the top of the screen been removed? I've not seen them for a couple days, and just wondered if it was my computer.

I can understand if they have been removed temporarily for the malware issues we had, but some confirmation I'm not going crazy would be nice lol!

Good morning TigerFishy,

I don't see them either! I didn't even realize they were gone.

They are definitely gone. I just figured Mike did it to protect us from the Malware issue.

It's kinda nice to only have fish stuff on the page, isn't it?

It is, my work computer usually blocks them so I get a big red stop sign in their place, so it's nice to not have that staring at me from the top of every page for a change!

I hadn't noticed either! But I would think that the revenue from the ads is necessary to keep FL up and running?

While it may appear nice, Meenu's right; those ads provide the income that funds the month-to-month expenses of running a forum (like buying new cars for the mods)
I'm guessing that Mike is working on finding a more reliable set of ads (due to the malware issues).

I think fishlore has a store of sorts set up on Zazzle(?) don't know how many people know about it or not... It's t-shirts and stuff I think.

I believe that there's a link to it in Mike's sig.
