Less Advertisements - suggests intext advertising

I suggest intext advertising.
Although mysmf is free. I shouldn't be too crowded with advertising.

I recommend intext advertising. That way the forum will look a little bit cleaner and more enticing for people.

I actually think the opposite intext advertising is way more intrusive than a banner ad. Also it does not pay as much as banners.

Don't mean to be rude, but I've tried the competition using intext advertising. I kind of inclined to recommend the competition to friends.

Intext advertising could be showed only to guests. smf has thousands of users and way more reliable than the competition.
I don't think they need that much advertising on their free boards.

If really need to use banners, maybe 1 banner is enough and not that huge as to take over 1/8 of the page. It's kind of a turn off when compared to competition.

Just an honest opinion. No offense.

We have ad free plans. I am not really competing against anyone since we have more features than most forum hosts out there.

I totally agree with this.

For some reason I don't think so. banners pays much more maybe, but not the intrusive part.
Intext advertising is not intrusive if its activated only on guests accounts but deactivated in members login.
Banners are a pain.
Maybe if would be a little bit less intrusive (banners) if placed on the left side of the page or right, as long as it's not that huge.
