    I've paid for a membership, and believed that came with a “no advertising” feature as well. Has this changed?

    Sometimes there are issues due to a corrupted session cookie.
    Try this
    log out of BF. Clear your browser cookies, then close the browser.
    Then open the browser and log in again.
    If that does not work, shout for Spark.

    Yeah, and I just cleared everything and logged in again. Seems like I got a new wider display and not seeing the ad there anymore. Awesome!

    May have been an artifact of the style you were using. I just went through and disabled a bunch or styles

    My subscription shows good until the end of the year.

    My brother and I (both Platinum) are not getting any ads. Perhaps this is only afflicting Basic Members.

    Basic member, not seeing ads, but I do see the prompt that says Paid members don't see ads.
