How many of you see the site sponsor ads?

Just curious...one of our users says he does not see the ads from Schnell, GAHH, Eiq, Deluboz, etc.

We're wondering what browser you are using and if there are compatibility issues.

Thanks,
Rkwei

Windows XP and IE6

I've seen all of em (I think!), Gahh, Free Porsche Parts Catalog (dunno the company), Deluboz, and Vertex Auto are on my screen right now.

I see all of these in Firefox 2.0 on Windows XP SP2 (2 computers), and Windows 2000 (1 computer) I've never tried visiting these sites in IE..

Sounds to me like he has some sort of ad-blocker installed?


Edit: After the jump, Deluboz and was replaced by "RaceByDesign" and Gahh was replaced by "Epiq".

I see all of them. But I still have NOT received my FREE CATALOG from **************************************** the sponsor that is on the left. I filled out the info twice over the past few months and still no catalog ever came in the mail. What gives!?

Yes, XP, IE6. Have never not been able to see them.

I think that guy wasn't saying that he can't see them; he was saying that he didn't see where/how to sign up to become one, if you're referring to the performance chip thread. Of course, that could have just been my interpretation.

No he can't see them and even sent a screen shot to that effect. Says it is us and not his setup.

All is well on my Windows XP SP2 viewing with either Mozilla or Internet Explorer.

Perhaps the user has some type of SPAM blocker that disables the ads.

While hardly scientific, I believe the responses indicate that I can make a sweeping generalization - all of our members (save perhaps one), are able to see the sponsor advertising. I'll close the thread now so we can move on.

Thanks
