The changes that are being made at the moment are intended to show more ads to unregistered guests while having as little impact on registered members as possible. We're still working on some of the details, so bear with us for a bit!

The adverts in the the first couple of posts in a thread will only be shown to guests, and not to any registered users. It's a pretty standard vBulletin setup these days - it gets good results and doesn't affect registered users at all. We're working on a system so that these ads won't be shown at all in any posts made by supporters or trade members, in the meantime they have been deactivated.

The separate option where registered users can opt out of seeing other adverts will probably change to paid up supporters only. The plan is for all existing registered members to get "grandfather" rights though so it should only affect people who join after the new system is finalised.

The good news is that everyone else is also fumbling around a bit - you have some company in that respect. I think you'll find in a few days that the surprise will wear off. It's also important to remember that we are still tweaking things and dialing in some features.
