Currently, the amount of money coming from sponsoring is pretty minimal (maybe $15/mo). But, it would be worth having it detect a person's login, see they're a sponsor, and just disable loading any ads.

Again... an idea in the works... it MIGHT be something I could start working on as I work on migrating to the newer software (where I have to work in the templates for the site anyway). No promises right away, but I think that would help people like you who don't mind pitching in a few bucks month in exchange for having ads disabled. Originally sponsoring was setup just because members really wanted a way to directly contribute. That's why I set it up with small amounts like that.

That sounds like a good idea! Is it a one time pay or is it a subscription? Once I have more cash on hand (darn dubia roaches burnt quite the hole in my wallet) I'd Love to sponsor!

The sponsors are a subscription. Obviously since I just thought of the idea, I haven’t yet assessed which sponsorship level would be the best one (i.e. balance to about the same revenue). I suspect the $2 or $3/mo sponsorships would do it. Not sure about the $1/mo. It might. Again, need to check on the math of it all. :)
