Not sure if this is the proper place for this, but it's a thread that's getting a lot of attention, and the subject is related. By way of showing my support, I've whitelisted Qt3 on all the broswers I use, and I'm going to sign up for Patreon in the next day or so (I was waiting until after they charged for the start of the month since your support had to be added to the budget). I just wanted to establish that I'm not a freeloader, and that I am happy to support you.
However, a couple of things bug me with respect to ads:
First, this obnoxious ad showed up on my iPad this afternoon :
this is the first time I've seen this type of ad on the iPad (and I use my iPad on Qt3 daily). So this is new. It's horrible - especially considering the 'Hide' button was not respnsive for at least a minute or two after the ad showed up. Also, the ad reappears each time you switch pages.
I am happy to support you but this is too intrusive for me. So I installed AdBlocker on iOS so I wouldn't have to put up with that again.
Second, I have been visiting the front page more the last few weeks. I don't mind most of the ads I'm getting served but one type really frosts me - it's the type which shows a video window with a mute video playing. I really really really hate those types of ads... I never click them except to pause the video, since the motion is distracting (and I guess that's why they do it, to get some attention). I've even gone so far as to drag the 'video' portion of the page offscreen so I never have to think about it.
Take all that for what you will.
