There are some free hosting services that provide you with their service in exchange for ads on your site. Have you ever tried this out? And if so, were the ads ever intrusive?

Actually this is the case for Proboards. I don't mind the ads, they're not intrusive at all in my opinion.

I didn't even know that, to be honest. I have an ad blocker enabled so didn't notice lol
I had to do this during my time with Jcink, got in trouble because I think I removed ads or something by accident once.
Surprised that you're able to even do that, to be honest. Surely they don't just rely on users not removing the ads?

Kind of? I guess, people always needed support, so if a staff spotted an ad free forum without permission got in trouble.

Actually I remember now, a staff member removed it by accident, I requested support without realizing it and got in trouble. I fixed and explained the issue to the staff, but they didn't want excuses, I was like lol F you bro.

They don't advertise via popups. Which is great.

I have no idea why but some support staff out there are just dicks. I'm guessing because it's a voluntary position most of the time, you get power hungry people taking up the positions that just want to be rude all the time
