If you're going to attempt to wring Ł5 a month out of us EG, do make sure you fix the numerous forum bugs, make a solid, scaleable portable friendly design and don't accidentally log me in as someone else because Barry accidentally kicked over the server since, you know, you'd then be dealing with our credit card details too.|
In other words- never, ever going to happen.
If you'd pay EG a subscription fee to have adverts removed... • Page 3

I'd pay for it, mainly because I've been cheating EG out of ad revenue for years via adblock. Be nice to give something back, if only a fiver a month.

I disable Adblock for RPS, never really thought about doing it here.

Just because you on't find them intrusive, doesn't mean others might feel otherwise. Last time I had ads enabled on mobile, there was one that automatically opened and obscured the page every time you scrolled down.
Of course, to be fair to bennyw01, he has been fairly active in stomping those out. But I can certainly understand people feeling having been annoyed to such an extent that they don't feel comfortable disabling AdBlock again.
For example, there is currently an ad for Second Son right at the edge just now that expands to fill the entire screen if your mouse happens to hover anywhere close to it. It is an issue that has been raised, and is sufficiently annoying that people may want to enable AdBlock because of it, to prevent the expansion issue.

I'd give money if Richard Leadbetter gets a 10 minutes a week video series about the tech behind gaming. I want to man in front of a big arse TV pointing out tearing and bad aliasing.
