    Sponsored Posts

    I have not noticed until lately that in some of the forums
    the first couple of threads are sponsored posts.

    Is this normal or am I in the twilight zone..

    I believe that's normal, but they appear to be popping up more often. Hopefully that means we're getting more sponsors.

    Submitted for your approval. An average guy from GA, lost in ads in a forum full of gun people.

    [poster identifies as DBKS]

    No, I have not noticed that. There's always a banner ad at the top before any postings, but I don't see any ads that disguise as postings. I wonder if rank or profile have anything to do with it.

    I just noticed it recently too and was told they were sponsor ads. I thought they were spam. It might be we missed them because we always work off the "new posts" list? and not the forum proper?

    I haven't actually opened an individual forum in quite some time.

    Yes the sponsored posts are common.

    Most are okay by me -- often there are nice deals on arms or munitions. That'a good thing!
