    i'm seeing them pop up inside of people's posts now, on more than just page one too.

    see the attached example - red outline mine for emphasis around ads, notice they are inside posts one and three on the second page of a thread.
    Any thread older than 2 weeks will now have that style of ad, instead of the previous ad that just below the first post of every thread.

    is that a running two weeks, or just a marker?

    what i mean is, does it only apply to threads started before the 1st of July or does it mean that even threads started today will eventually become filled with ads?

    Apt. meant as in a 2 week duration, but not a specific date as in the 1st of July. So all threads won't have the imbedded ads.

    well, i do have to say, this newer version of the new ad thing is considerably more annoying than the original single inline ad.

    I totally agree. The old ad style I was fine with, but this is just annoying/ irritating/ everything else bad!! I think it should go back to how it was before. Some people were still getting use to that..

    I don't know about others here, but this new style of ad-format, being embedded in the posts is going to drive me to getting an ad-blocker, where as the last one wouldn't have. Which would lead to less ad-clicking...

    So what ever happened to the pay option that we could do to help out M-F and get the add free pages?? To those who pay of course..

    It's still on the table, but there's no guarantee that it will happen.
