I'm getting some super obtrusive ads on mobile. As far as I'm aware every patreon (even the two dollar backers) was given ad free experience since they were all grouped together, right? I'm wondering if that's an error, or it was finally amended. If it's finally been separated by patreon tier that's fine, I just want to know so I can ante up my monthly donation and get rid of the ads.

EDIT: asking around, looks like some 10$ backers are having ads too?

Double edit: it's only for mobile it seems...?

$2 backers should still get ads definitely. But as a staff you may have special privileges.

as for yesterday's issue I was tweaking with the code, must have made a temporary mistake, but fixed it I guess.

to be clear, only $5+ backers should be able to browse the site ad-free (as per the patreon plans)
if you are a $5+ backer and still see ads, please let me know, shouldn't be happening.

I'm a $10 backer I got ads today.
Currently on PC, and it's ad free. Mobile I can check later.
I suspect that the problem is only happening on mobile, I can't check right now though.
if you use your mobile device and get ads, can you tell me which of these ads you get:
1) fixed ad at the bottom of the page
2) full page ad that shows when you click a link from the portal
3) banners in threads - below the first post / after the last post in a thread
thanks in advance, this will help

Alright. So I only seem to get them on mobile, bottom of the page ads, nothing else.

Reviving this thread because I am getting ad banners in between posts on desktop, Firefox Dev Edition. Maybe a flag wasn't set for me?

Note that only $5+ backers get ad free, so if you donated less than that then you will still see ads.

If you donated $5+, then there may be an issue
