Annoying Ads

I am a subscriber through ActBlue. I left the ads on because they were small and I figured Dkos could use the revenues. Recently, though they are getting quite annoying and take up way to much of my machine capacity. I went to turn them off and can't seem to find the way to do it from my profile page. I keep getting a message that the page is down and if it continues, to contact the help desk. Any advice? Oh, I checked ActBlue and my subscription and credit card is up to date.

    Hello, and thanks for your inquiry as well as for your donations. We very much appreciate your financial support.

    We don't have the capacity to track donations made via ActBlue and consolidate them for a site subscription, unfortunately. But you are definitely welcome to subscribe, and then it's up to you whether you wish to continue making donations on top of the subscription.

    At the moment, we have had to deactivate our online subscription portal. But it is still possible to purchase a one-year subscription by mailing us a check.

    The check, for $40, should be made payable to Daily Kos and mailed to P.O. Box 70036, Oakland, CA 94612.

    Please note these special instructions:
    1) The memo line should say Subscription for [username] and
    2) SUBSCRIPTION should be written next to your address block at the top of the check.

    We will be processing these subscriptions by hand, and given the volume of correspondence we receive it’s important to make sure the key information is on the check. Anyone may purchase a subscription for any site member, so to write the username on the check does not necessarily create a link between the username and the check writer. Make sure the username is spelled correctly including any spaces.

    Thank you again for your support of the site.
