    I am a premium member and as such I was under the impression that I would not be presented with advertisements when logged in however i am seeing one on the main page.

    ideas???

    That doesn't really count. How much of your time do you spend on the main page?

    If you weren't a premium member, you'd have multiple adverts on every page you visit.

    I go to the main page everyday a couple of times usually for the puzzle of the day, the opening of the day, the poll and sometimes the articles listed there.

    Yea I didn't use to be a premium member and I was inundated with ads then.

    From the premium upgrade page:

    ---

    No Ads!!

    Premium Members will not see any external ads on Chess.com (other than the main homepage) and will see very few internal ads (announcing new products and services).

    ---

    The emphasis is my own.

    very very occassionally we will have a chess-related ad only on the homepage for everyone.

    for example, after thanksgiving and up through christmas we will likely have some chess-related ads on the homepage. that is when chess vendors are starting to advertize.

    i hope nobody is offended by that :)

    home page advert is ok.  Anywhere else would be frowned upon.

    As I said in other thread, I am very disappointed to discover that freedom from advertisements is no longer a benefit of premium membership. Hmmm...if I downgrade my diamond membership to "free", I can still play in Patzer's thematic tournaments...and when I am reimbursed for the unused portion of my diamond membership, I'll invest in a really first-class House of Staunton set...for Christmas, you know, hype hype hype

    I understand. I know you have got to do what you have got to do in the best interests of the site.

    You will see WAY more ads with a free membership.
