Ad-Free Experience

You'll be able to view Yuku profiles and non-Gold Yuku communities without Yuku-generated ads. Because Brewerfan pays to be a Gold community, it will not display ads placed by Yuku. LambeauLeap will go Gold once Yuku ads kick in.

Note that the ads at the top and the bottom of each Brewerfan board page are placed by Brewerfan/LambeauLeap. Those will remain. Likewise, the ads at the bottom of the LambeauLeap board pages will remain.


This is from Casey's post on Yuku Supporter. I can only assume we're in the stage that I put in bold. Then again, I really don't know much about this stuff.


Will you have this left guard to be the 224th pick?

Lambeauleap went Gold a couple of minutes ago. Except for the block of four ads placed by Brewerfan/LambeauLeap at the page bottoms, ads should be gone--whether you're a Yuku Supporter, non-Yuku Supporter, or non-logged in guest.

Yes, we are currently having some minor issues. Casey's working on it. Hopefully things will get straightened out in the next day or two.

edit: Basically the payment to keep us a Gold Community was made to Yuku to keep us ad free but the payment doesn't appear to be officially credited to us yet. It should have went through but for some reason it didn't get credited all the way. The payment does show up as received. Casey or maybe Peaveyfury can better explain. Casey has a help ticket filed with Yuku and they should take care of the issue soon. Hopefully in the next day or so. I sure hope tomorrow.

If you don't want to see ads on any Yuku forum you can get Yuku Supporter. We are charged by page views and we aren't charged for views from Yuku Supporters. So, if you get Yuku Supporter your views are free to us. If not we get charged per view. Now, if you come here a lot like me, getting Yuku Supporter is worth it. Plus you get some extra features. Some you might not use, some you might.

I relayed jason21nl's concern to Alison, the Yuku staff member who's acting as a liaison for getting this issue addressed. I'm not seeing any ads as a logged out guest or via a non-Yuku Supporter test account. I'll make sure that's reported, too.

Alison isn't the one who'll actually fix this; she's helping to keep the communication pipeline open. If I add information to the actual help ticket without first receiving a reply from Yuku, it'll get knocked back to the end of the line. Giving the additional information directly to Alison gets us around that issue.

If anyone's seeing ads, s/he should certainly report it in this thread. The silver lining is that LambeauLeap won't be charged for any page views that include ads.

As far as the technical explanation, I made a payment to Yuku to purchase 30,000 ad-free page views. Instead, we were credited with 30 ad-free days. The problem is that large boards like LambeauLeap are supposed to be charged by the page view. We were credited under the wrong system.

My guess is that the ads might have shown up when the gurus were trying to resolve this issue. Anyway, everything should be in order now. Thursday night's payment was converted to 30,000 page views, and we now have 29,821 page views remaining.

Technically, we ran out of page views Friday afternoon. It looks like Yuku opted to give us the remainder of Friday, the weekend, and the first part of today free of charge. Image It's not unusual for them to do that when there's a discrepancy.

I figured I'd note that LambeauLeap was given 1,000 free ad-free views as compensation for the board being down at times last weekend.

That's completely "plus time" on our end as the board wouldn't have been using up views anyway while it was inaccessible.
