    Please stop trying to "shame" me into turning it off. Please fix the tool used to detect this.

    I posted this in Uhall due to a lack of forum (that I could find, I thought we had a technical forum?) to discuss Stratics only things.

    I have enlisted for a premium account and got that message today again. :(
    I don't run adblock either, so there is definitely something weird with the script.

    The forum has now been moved for greater visibility, thanks for the suggestion. Also, are you still having issues with the adblock message?

    I've made an adjustment that should have resolved the issue. As long as you are logged in, it should not display. Please let me know if it worked.

    It comes and goes, it's like it forgets I clicked the X now and again or something or another. Then again Firefox has been super angry at things all week so I'm not sure if it's you or Firefox the moment.

    Also good news about the forum move!

    Okay well I can play with it a bit more and see what I can do. It detects scripts that run to block ads, and is not meant to be annoying or guilt inspiring. Usually people install ad blockers for pop-up protection, abusive sites, and overwhelming ads. We don't host any of those negative advertisements. We meant to use the detector feature as a gentle request that our community reconsider the use blockers on our site specifically. If the feature is overwhelming, then I'll keep looking into ways to make it less so. Awareness is the goal. In your case, maybe it is bugging out and has something to do with Firefox, so this is good to know.

    Is this still creating issues? I'm on the verge of disabling this add-on if it is.

    The problem hasn't shown on my end for a good while now.

    I've not noticed it since the latest graphic overhaul.
