    Which mod?

    We don't like external hosts where you have to sign up for something, or download anything just to get the file.
     
  4. If you have adblock installed on your browser just pause it when viewing the mods section.

    Do you think we can do all this for free? Do you think we're not paying money to hosting companies etc.? Do you think we're getting servers for free just because we're running a great site for tens of thousands of sim racing fans? Do you think we actually make more money than we spend on this by having ads on the site?

    The answer to all these questions is: NO! Running adblock on RaceDepartment means we lose money, money we need to run this beast in the first place. Using adblock on RaceDepartment basically means you're destroying the site you're using to get your mods.

    What's a mod worth if it can't be hosted anywhere popular? And that's where RaceDepartment comes into play. Don't want to support us, even if it's only through disabling adblock addons?

    Jeez, think 2 steps ahead, it really isn't that hard. Contrary to popular opinion neither of the staff members is swimming in money.

    I suggest you whitelist all the websites you visit that offer you content that you enjoy and block those that are intrusive.

    Adblock is really destroying online websites. See it as you work 40 hours a week and when the pay check is due to arrive your boss says: sorry m8 not this week but don't complain I allowed you to work here all week :D

    I must say that the title of this thread is very misleading and not true. Nobody is asked to pay anything. We never did, and never will.

    Mods are supposed to be free and the moment people are charging money for it it becomes illegal.
     
  12. Sorry, but can I say something here? I get the blue page telling me to disable AdBlock as well, even though my AdBlock has been disabled on this site for ages. I think it's a bug we're talking about here, as a reload usually makes it go away. From what I noticed, it also appears if I scroll down before the page is fully loaded, but that theory is not perfect, as it does appear at random too.

    For a future reference, I'm using CometBird 11.0 on a Windows 7 Ultimate with all the updates to date.

    I'm not accusing anyone of anything, I'm merely trying to explain the problems we're facing. I understand that ads can be annoying but we need them to keep RD running.

    Sad thing is that some people actually think that is true.

    Can't be more far from the truth to be honest.
