Until today I used to run one ad per page but with everyone these days running Ad Blockers it wasn’t making anything. I don’t run this forum to make money. I run it as an HD owner and enthusiast.

The hope with running one ad per page was to allow enough income to help offset the cost of operating. One ad per page allowed for a speedy page load and a good user experience but since so many people have blockers these days it wasn’t bringing in any revenue.

So as said, today I turned off all published ads and the hope is that Supporting Membership will increase.

In order to possibly get a few more Supporting Member subscriptions I have added a popup that comes up once a session that Guests and Regular Members will see. If your are a Staff Member or already a Supporting Member you won’t see the popup. It is only meant to be a gentle reminder to those that are not supporting the forum.

As said it will only show up once per session so it won’t haunt you and shame you continuously to become a Supporter.

This is the Popup…



It reads as follows…

Welcome to HDBitchin

We are an Ad Free Harley Davidson Forum. 

But please understand that without some percentage of member subscriptions this website wouldn't be here.  If you can become a Supporting Member to help us keep the costs down please do so.


But it is still your choice, you can register just as a regular member and see no advertising but adding in a subscription and becoming a "Supporting Member" helps us with the cost of running the forum and it only costs just $15 per year.


This reminder that we are Ad Free appears once a "session" and you can clear this by refreshing (or reloading) this page or click the X in the upper right corner.

That would be nice but I am not sure if the IRS would look at it that way.

I am coming due for renewal in December. This forum is worth way more than the $15 per year to me. I will be renewing my subscription soon.

Thanks Tank for the great work that you do here.

Thanks for your continued support. As said, I don’t run this forum to make money. I run it as an HD owner and enthusiast. The money that I take in helps offset it from being 100% funded by me personally.

Thanks!
