Anyone else getting this rather large pop-up notification which just appeared this morning? It takes up more than half the screen (I use a mobile device) & with the keyboard taking up room on-screen it makes it virtually unuseable. As you can see by the screen-shot, I am not using adblocking software.
A tad frustrating to say the least...😄

Forget ads. There is an easy way to avoid them: Support this forum with a donation, and they will all be gone, in favour of real helpful Camino content and nothing less. Easy, helpful, and honest. Honestly.


This a serious way to support your own Camino experience and at the same time support future and past pilgrims..

I have started to track users who seems to be running ad blockers.

I realise that ads are annoying, but it is one of the ways I can make this site a source of income for me. The alternative to seeing ads would be to become a donating member, that removed all ads.

If you see this banner and feel it is a mistake (as it seems you are since I see the ad there), please PM me.
Thanks Ivar...I have donated in the past, more to support you & your wonderful forum than to block ads. Allowing my donation to lapse is simply poor admin on my behalf than anything else. 😄
I actually don't find the ads annoying...some really interesting items appear amongst them!

On my PC I do use an Ad blocker, simply because some sites can carry 'non-friendly' Ads. One newspaper has some I would feel could even carry a virus so the Ad blocker is on by default. Protecting my PC is a high priority so it stays on even on a 'friendly ' site.
Reading the forum on any other system I have no Ad blocker, and also both ways are affected by whether I have actually logged in or not.
Ads showed when I was not logged in even when I was a donating member, that is how it seems to work, because I assume it could not know that I was donating unless I logged in.
