I looked at those two screen shots you posted... Posts in ads appear in the first one you posted - not logged in. There is actually an ad in the post.

In the second screen shot, there is a sponsor ad between two posts - but not actually in the post and this may be why there is confusion. The sponsors help us keep the doors open and the forum free and available to everyone.

Supporting members (who also help keep the lights on) have an option in their usercp to disable some of these ads including the ones between posts and so if you are really, really bugged by these you might consider that option.. In either case we appreciate the support and hope that you can find some balance that works for your browsing needs.

Thanks Janet for responding. For me it has been a productive discussion. I do hate the videos. I have signed up as a contributing member and will look into trying to set it up so it works faster.
I have a 2014 Mac desktop at home but have not seen it for 3 months. Living in my Airstream trying to stay on Airforums with a mobile hotspot. It is not easy to stay logged in because I have to reboot the computer every few days to stay on the hotspot.

Stoped using the web interface due to constant slow load speeds. Using my iPhone app most of the time now. Especially when using my hot spot. Too much add content load.

So for that one go to your UserCP, click on Edit Options, and scroll down to the Miscellaneous Options, and turn off the Airstream Daily Popup. That should take care of that guy.

I'm running a 2012 Dell Inspiron laptop, I-3 processor and 3 GM of ram with WIN7 for the OS. I have a terabyte of HD space on a solid state drive. I use IE and Firefox as browsers. I've used my home wifi with TWC cable ISP and on the road with the Verizon Ellipses Jetpack.

I don't get the popups, I don't see the ads except on the main page and between posts and the pages load very fast. Right now, I'm not seeing any ads. If I'm not logged in I get one popup until I log in and then I don't see it anymore.

I never had problems like this before. It is miserable now and I can't even use the site at times.

Strange. I see no popups, no videos, and only the few sidebar ads on the right. I'm always logged in. Using Chrome. I haven't noticed any reduction in forum loading speed.

Here is a GREAT link that tells you how to stop all of that auto-play crap on ANY website...with easy to understand instructions for disabling that horrific crap on Chrome, Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Safari.

Do what it says...it WORKS. And no more maddening crap automatically playing on every page.

How to Disable Annoying Autoplay Media in Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and Internet Explorer Digiwonk

You can thank me later.

Go to www.aboutads and click on the consumer tab. Following the instructions, this site will notify all the advertisers (apprx 99% participate in this code of conduct) to remove you from solicitation. It takes about three minutes, and costs nothing. Works like a champ to prevent page slowdown due to long scripted pops and animated advertising.
