I understand that ads can be annoying. But without ads, we cannot meet the funds needed to renew our services every year. Here's the breakdown of costs and why we need ads to offset the lack of donations. Ads account for about 1/3 of the site revenue and without them, we would not be able to keep going.https://www.wildguzzi.com/donations.htm
If we meet the revenue goal, I will disable ads for the remainder of that year. But, we typically do not meet the goal until November or so of each year. In 2018, we didn't meet the goal until December 18th...talk about cutting it close. We renew on the first of each year.
So, that's why there's ads here. To help keep the board going. There should be no more than 2 per page though, so I feel that is tolerable for a completely free resource that has existed since 1997 or so.
