    Pretty much as per subject. Renewed 19/07 at 03:45(ish) BST ( I'm insomniac ) and I'm seeing the non-subscription site complete with ads.

    Is it an automated process, or does it rely on a put upon Admin to oil the gears?

    Cheers.

    I've paid twice and never worked, except for the first time, then I installed a new router, I'm confused.

    I’ve been a supporter for a few years now. I always see ads. Is removing them really a thing that happens?

    Ad-free and Supporter are paid for separately.

    Ad-free is intended to replace the money that the Owner doesn't make because you don't see ads.

    Supporter was once logical when the site was ad-free and needed bucks for hosting and bandwidth. Currently, it's intended to generate revenue since TDPRI is now a for-profit business.

    Ad-Free member status renewed as above, yet still not showing.

    Is there some issue?. Anyone else had this?, what's the resolution?

    Pretty sure the only time I've seen ads here is when visiting from someone else's system.
    Hint, hint
