    I’m logged in. I’m looking at my own blog. The ad that I see is for WordPress premium, but it is an ad nonetheless.

    The blog I need help with is briarcat.wordpress.com.

    Are you referring to what you see on your dashboard?

    No, this was between the last line of my post and the “share this” buttons.

    I’ll tag this thread for Staff assistance.

    Please post screenshot, upload it to your Media Library, and return to this thread to provide the file name so Staff can examine it.

    Please subscribe to the thread so you are notified when they respond and please be patient while waiting.

    I saw one of those on another site I admin that does not have the No Ads Upgrade – they seem to be an extension of the “your visitors may see ads” addition for logged in bloggers on blogs that don’t have the No Ads Upgrade – last week there was a blank box

    Replace the blank box with a buy something from WordPress.COM – a bit more in your face to buy an upgrade

    I am not staff but this is my best guess –

    I removed the tagging for Staff as the “About these ads” link makes it clear this is a WordPress.com placed ad.

    I said in my initial remark that it was an ad for WordPress premium. It is still an ad.

    I’ll tag it again for Staff but I doubt that the ad will be removed.

    Yes, and it looks like we’re going to be stuck with them.

    I’m just disappointed. I was planning to spring for a custom, but if things like that can show up, as it says they can unless you pay, yearly– why waste my money trying?

    I would never spring for a custom design upgrade as first choice for an upgrade. My first choice is a domain mapping upgrade, and my second choice was No-Ads upgrades for both blogs.

    We run ads on our free WordPress.com sites from time to time in order to help pay the bills, as they say. Recently we have included ads for WordPress.com products.

    If you wish to remove ads from your blog, you may do so with the No Ads upgrade, as timethief mentioned.

    I assume the TOS has been updated to indicate that logged in users now see ads, the old TOS was logged in users did not see any ads – that has been changed?

    It still says that logged-in WordPress users do not see these (things we are looking at).

    Limited income. I take what I can get.

    I think that having a blog here is a good deal – I have domain mapping an no ads on my main site and think that is a good deal – 3gb storage & as much bandwidth and visitors as I can figure out how to get to my site

    Good luck with your blog

    There are Pages of unanswered threads and I can’t believe this one keeps getting bumped.

    Not in the mood today – helped a few people today – got the middle finger for trying to help a jerk yesterday – have some other things like research for some new articles – remember as someone says on their blogging advice blog – fresh quality content helps build traffic
