I just now turned off all ads. The last of the ads running here was adsense.
All that is left are "ads" that point to interesting pages within the empire: threads within permies; stuff on richsoil ... I think there is just one "ad" left that is for the food forest cards - but I made an offer so freaky sweet to switch that to a reference to a thread here on permies, that should wrap up. Besides, that is definitely for permies related stuff.
Have I missed anything?
I am hoping that the thread boost stuff will become a way for just our people to draw attention to their stuff.
We've only had a few people trying thread boost, but I think it will take a while for people to get the hang of it. And appreciate how much it can do.
