As forum owner I don't see any but Dave informs me the adverts are now quite regular especially when using mobiles. I know the ladies on my cross stitch forum dislike them, especially the music!
The only way to be rid is to pay Yuku to be ad-free - it's $6 a month.
The Stitch ladies do it a couple of ways - we meet twice a year and hold a raffle with all money going to pay to remove the adverts (we're only 5/6 people, all bring a prize and although we're still paying it's nice to have a little something - usually raise enough for 5 months as free)
The other way is direct contribution - the stitch ladies living abroad or unable to go to the meet ups donate a month's worth every now and then.
So my idea is for now if anyone would like to contribute to getting rid of the ads the link is at the top of the home page 'Contribute Now!' or follow this link
Then when we have our next weekend away we could have a raffle and use the money for a few more ad-free months.
Like I said I don't see them so the decision about whether you want ad-free is your choice, contributions make the board ad-free for all viewers not just contributor.
