    Poll: Advertisements.

    All,
    I have been discussing with a few of you concerning membership vs open forum. I run a representative board, and so I open it up to you.

    I vote membership. I would rather pay than deal with the adds. BTW. How will I know when it's time to re-subscribe?

    My vote is for membership! I visit a number of forums and have found that ads and pop ups are very distracting and disruptive to threads. I enjoy reading, responding, and helping other GD owners. Just as GD has a new model for the industry, we should keep this board as a model for communication. Besides all of that, it keeps the conversations positive and focussed on our units.

    I'd suggest the second option. Sponsors have no ads, and non-sponsors have full access but have to deal with advertising. I have a feeling that we'd get more contributions if there was a "free" option. I've noticed that there are quite a few folks on the FaceBook page that are not members here.

    Andy, the renewal is automatic thru PayPal. If you decide not to renew, you have to go onto your PayPal account and stop it.

    I don't want any interruption from ads. I wouldn't use the form much if there were ads because they slow everything down and are disruptive. I am happy to pay for your services. You do a great job!

    For a buck a month (2 bucks for me as I pay for Jahna too) is so cheap to not see the ad's. Keep up the good work and leave forum as is.

    Just my 2 cents.
