    Hi Guys

    I noticed something a little earlier. I had logged off from ETO. So the Site thought I was a visitor….all ads on the right hand side were there…
    I logged in and the Site is normal. Page size full width and no Ads…

    Interesting….try it.

    I believe EM is looking after us regulars here :):):):)

    All the best,
    tvtech

    Hi tvtech,

    The new owners just updated the Xenforo software, and part of the update required that everyone be logged out. Members do not see the intrusive ads, guests do. It's a way of encouraging them to join ;)

    Regards,
    Matt

    I had an on-screen message earlier this afternoon, saying the site was being up-dated. Have just had to log in again and am pleased to see a full-width screen :).

    Bravo Matt

    Wonderful stuff. I could not believe my eyes at first...so I logged in and out a number of times to make sure I was not seeing things...

    And then I started a New thread. Love the way this is all being handled :)

    We...us....regulars count. Fantastic.

    Thanks Buddy,

    See tvtech, didn't I tell you to give the new owners a chance? Now you can see why ;)

    Regards,
