It turned out that I got several interesting replies, and Firefox can filter out the ads efficiently, so I joined.
drhexThe reason I asked my first question as "anonymous" was that I wasn't sure if I wanted to join a site with so many big & obnoxious ads. I also did not know if anyone would answer.Hello and welcome to EF!
Actually, I think ads are only visible to anons. When I log it, they disappear (another good reason to register here )
Anonymous:"Why be anonymous?"
Because I don't like to register. I have a lot of registrations in several sites and I get very confused. Can't remember all my passwords and usernames. Besides, there's no advantage registering. If the problem is "I want to know to whom I'm talking to", this forum should provide a space to type a name before posting.
My two cents. ;-)
If there is any grammar error, sorry for my English .
Ps. Having FB made it quick and easy.
Anonymous:I have registered before posting a question, however, firstly I followed links on the website expection it to prompt me to log in should it not recognise my IP address (as most websites do, ie ebay). Secondly, I just replied to a question but didn't log in as I can't remember the login name i gave. Still working that out! Dave Phillips
TanitActually, I think ads are only visible to anons. When I log it, they disappear (another good reason to register here )Hmm, now that you mention it :-)
The display of ads indeed seems to be linked to whether you're registered or not...
Anonymous:I agree that it would be better for people not to be anonymous. However, I applied for membership to this forum over two weeks ago, and have still not received an acceptance e-mail - and yes, I have checked my Spam and everything. So why should such a simple procedure take so long? Is there a long waiting list or something?
People are waiting to help.
