PLUS ads

OK,

...they have been posted for awhile now and I have to ask if anyone else finds the PLUS member ad pictures, running down the lefthand side of the Classifieds section annoying or disenfranchising?

I liked the random pictures of recent postings much better than a dedicated area for those that bucked up some greenbacks.

Flame on

I'm with you, it's been discussed before. But that's the perks when you buy a plus account.
I don't like it, but I doubt it will change

I'm ok with it...I even thought about joining it to support RCG,...if only for the larger mailboxes.

Let's put it this way- How/Why do you think we get this "Free" service? RCG's gotta make money somehow....

on a side note, RCG could be a "paid site" and have no advertisement, no plus account...but would you be willing to pay for RCG on a monthly basis?

I haven't found a reason to switch from the classic site yet.

Although I appreciate that RCG needs to pay the bills to keep providing this beloved service, I doubt that the $5 per PLUS Member is doing that. More likely Sponsors and advertising pays the bills.

I miss the frequently updating 'newly posted' pictures in different catagories. I would peruse the Classified page for pictures of the newly posted items and now find no reason to.

You sure about that $5? Unless you were invited, Last I heard it cost a pretty penny more than that.

I wouldn't mind the larger mailbox. I have enough conversations here to where I have to sorta delete my inbox about every few days....which is a real bummer.

Why not just copy the text out of your mailbox and save it in a word file.
