I'm running Windows 10 as my OS. I went into settings and turned back on Ad blocker+, then into the ABP icon located in the upper right corner of the top taskbar, and deactivated ABP for this site only. Now the ads are all back.
Ads are here on the desk top i Mac - don't ask me why - Richard
well, in contradiction to some folks here...
I worry that there are too few publicity banners at the moment. Don't forget that this site, like any site, must generate some money to stay alive.
An admin from another very large modeling site
He posted that every free modeling site has ads to support them, but this is the only site he's seen that actively forces members and viewers to disable their ABP.
This doesn't speak well for Aeroscale in the general community.
So now it looks like every Kitmaker site has to be unblocked individually.
I frequently refer other modelers to the site as being the best on the web
but I can't do that now
A couple of comments.
1. Browser cookies work on a domain level. So just as with your logins if you move from one domain to another you have to set them up for both domains. If you use the kitmaker.net domain to move between sites there is one cookie for all those. I believe AdBlocker has a 'whitelisted' domains in the options area and if you want to do all of them you could simply add them there.
2. For those that want to view this site without the side ads and Google ads there is an option for that. Subscribe for $3.49 a month (a huge fee I know) and you can turn them off. You also won't get any adblock thwarting code if you are a subscriber and logged in.
If you want to use the site for free and use AdBlocker all I can say is... no. Sorry right is right and wrong is wrong and I pay the server bills and have devoted 15 years of my life to this. Asking people to disable AdBlocker for KitMaker is not a huge deal. If you want to make it a huge deal go ahead and be my guest.
And Joel... dude... I sent you that Academy F-4J back in March. I used part of my evil "financial gain" to do that (as well as all the prior stuff I sent you). Is it too much to ask that before you start berating me in the forums for profiteering off your personal effort, that I could get the personal effort? Thanks.

Excellent, the more visitors, the more views, the more add views, the more money to improve the sites technology....
but I can't do that now....
---"Common, admit, you are saying this for the sake of the argument, aren't you. You really feel that a secondary issue like an add blocker deteriorates the quality of the information here?"
Your business paid the postage if I remember correctly by the name on the return address portion of the shipping label. So in reality it was a business expense.
Letís try stepping back a minute and consider the issues here...
...I appreciate and understand that not everyone who visits or registers with the network is fully able to know all of the ins and outs of the programmes that run on their computers, but it should not be too difficult to learn how to switch aspects on or off as needed. As such I cannot help but think we are making too much of the aspect of preventing people using advert blockers to utilise the network.
