Ads After Purchasing Post Master General

Postby Aredita » Wed Nov 18, 2020 12:48 pm

I purchased the Post Master General Package in the NationStates store, and I still see ads.

However, I only see ads when I'm in the forums. I don't know if this is just how it is, and this is normal, or, if something is wrong.

Thanks for your help!

This certainly isn't normal. Check your settings. Do you have "Site Supporter: No advertisements" checked?
Romans 1:18-2:29, Ephesians 2:1-10
But God’s angry displeasure erupts as acts of human mistrust and wrongdoing and lying accumulate, as people try to put a shroud over truth. But the basic reality of God is plain enough. Open your eyes and there it is! | Those people are on a dark spiral downward. But if you think that leaves you on the high ground where you can point your finger at others, think again. Every time you criticize someone, you condemn yourself. | It’s a wonder God didn’t lose His temper and do away with the whole lot of us. Instead, immense in mercy and with an incredible love, He embraced us. He took our sin-dead lives and made us alive in Christ. He did all this on His own, with no help from us!

I'm actually having the exact same problem! It's especially annoying when one of those ads with sound pop up

The quickest fix is usually to turn the "no ads" toggle off in your nation's Settings, click Update, then turn it back on.

This error can occur if the connection between gameside and forumside gets interrupted, preventing the setting from being communicated to the forum. If you retry, it should go through.

Great! That worked!

I just toggled it off, and then on, and now, I don't see ads! Thank you!
