Hi, for a very long time I've always had Adblock disabled due to the fact that you can disable one of the two Ad types.

I can't stand Banner ads, so naturally I had those blocked while I was fine with the pop-unders and this has been working fine for a while now, it's just starting today, it shows both Banner Ads and Pop-unders even though I have Banner ads set as blocked in my profile as shown here : i.imgur.com/vj2PGeJ.png

and here they are showing up despite the settings: i.imgur.com/3OT0tAD.png

Is there anyway I'm able to remove Banners ads again?

As I said before, Pop-unders are perfectly fine and I know the site needs the income to stay free for everyone but Banner ads are incredibly obnoxious.

Thanks for your time and have a wonderful day!

P.S. I have read this: gelbooru.com/pasta.php . I'm more than willing to donate just to be free of these banner ads.

Ad selection is currently disabled. It should be back soon, though.

They've got ad selection disabled again, forcing you to have both banners and pop-unders. Considering how disgusting some of the banner ads are (I'm looking at you, squirting girl, though I really wish I wasn't) it's a wonder anyone thought removing the option to not have them while simultaneously trying to convince users to stop blocking ads was a good idea.

Agreed; it's beginning to annoy me. (And I have my adblock off for this site as well!) It's like that song "Stop Telling Me What To Do". I can't browse the site without these ads flooding me! I don't want to see your freaking ads, I want to see what I'm searching! It's getting annoying. And I can't browse Dan because it's all but become a premium site (full access costs you several dollars a month). What are we Gel users supposed to do? Sit and take it? What about those who have no way of supporting the site by donations? Are we left in the cold?

You cannot say that you are left in the cold, you are using a site that fights to be alive. You cannot come here and be like "man I don't want these ads" You don't want them but this site needs them. Without those "disgusting" ads, there wouldn't even be a gelbooru, at all. So as long as we are using the site, we must bear their policy and their ads.
