    So as one who has been on BYH as long as you have, and post as often as you do and are a "BYH EDUCATOR" ...why are you not supporting the site by being a GHM...?

    She included her reply within my quoted text due to a bb code error. (missing letter & bracket at the end)

    The ads were no issue with me but since I don't use Google, that may have been why. Ads help keep the site free and whether anyone upgrades (or not) is their choice and none of my business.

    Thanks for all the great feedback everyone!

    It's definitely a struggle to find the balance between keeping the site alive / free while also making sure the ads are not over-the-top.

    Ads within content is pretty standard throughout the web. I don't know very many big websites, blogs, news outlets, etc. that don't do this. That said, the "jumping" issue is definitely something we're looking into and hope to have fixed.

    There should NEVER be an ad that plays audio without you specifically clicking on the ad. If this ever happens, please report it!

    This is absolutely NOT our policy here. We'd be completely happy to simply run the site on advertising and not have paid memberships. This is something we added at the request of our members. We absolutely do NOT want the ads to be annoying and would love to have ads that have zero annoyance.

    Thank you @Nifty...I just would like to be clear that I did not become a GHM because it removed the ads, I joined to help support the cost of the site, the no ads were a perk.
