In general I would like to see the ads limited and focused, but out
right banned in favor of a donate button - I don't see the difference,
do you really think that a donate button means that the money doesn't go
to the owner or that they will stop taking donations as soon as the cost
is covered.

I do see a difference, It is not about that they get money, it is
/how/ the money is collected. It is the impression that the user will
get. Clicking a donate button is a voluntary choice by the user
clicking that button. Being presented/forced to view an advertisement
is not an optional thing.

What would you do with the forum at http://lo-portal.de
In or Out?

I wonder why this can not be clear - (did you forget to turn off your
adblocker?)

It is a definite "Out". it has animated, blinking banner-style adds.
That's just annoying and way too much. The adds are at the top, at the
left, at the right, at the bottom. That's way too much.

So bottom line is: If you want to have your forum listed on the LO
webpage, you must not have ads, neither textual nor graphcial
("sponsored by" is OK). That is my POV.

Bottom line - I think that is too stringent, but it is a close call IMO.

Not really. Either you want to support the project, by donating your
server or your time, or you want to get revenue by having ads.

After all setting up a forum is not rocket science, and it is not like
there would be a lack of them and we have to beg people to set up yet
another one. (IMHO there are already too many of them)

ciao
Christian
