Why do I see ads when I'm a subscriber?

Are you a site subscriber but you are now seeing ads on the site? "Show/Hide Ads" is a preference that is automatically set to "Hide Ads" when you subscribe. But sometimes the preference can get inadvertently set to "Show Ads." You can turn it off again, if your subscription is current, in one of two ways:

  1. Click the "Hide Ads" link in the pulldown menu attached to your username at the top right corner of your page.
  2. Find your "Edit Profile" page (linked from your profile page) and find the setting to show or hide ads, and change it.

You can tell your subscription is current by either looking for the badge on your profile page or by going to the site Subscriptions page to see your current status.
