    I do not think it will work. Mobile users, especially on apple iphones, do already see a lot of ads from various sources. Since this forum is ad-supported, it would then become necessary to add advertising to said app. Now, it may not be possible to implement correct and relevant domaining ads into the app (due to specific policies of android and apple). Nor is it trivial to block ads in mobile apps for endusers (especially on apple iphones), so a lot of endusers would rather elect not use this (or any other) app at all, if it shows ads, which is inevitable in current business model... Developing a forum app without ads would be great though.

    It is not required to use admob ads in case of Android for example, and same for iOS... a good way to show NP ads is to show them between posts for example, or for more exposure and reaching almost all users, is to use push notifications.

    There is no problem at all in regards to ads, there is many ways to manage that.

    NamePros administration should make it clear whether "No Trademarked domains for sale" rule applies to patented stuff: A quick g search shows the following:

    Patents prevent others from making or selling an invention, but trademarks protect the words, phrases, symbols, logos, or other devices used to identify the source of goods or services from usage by other competitors

    If patented stuff should also be disallowed on namepros, then np should disallow promotion or sales of coronavirus domains, as coronavirus is something that is patented by U.S. government institution:

    https://patents.google.com/patent/US7220852B1/en

    As corona domains are extremely popular on NP, a separate clarification post or rule may be necessary. Alternatively, should NP decide to allow coronavirus domains, should we then safely assume that any other patented stuff is also fine to be sold as domains on NP?

    My suggestion is NamePros should allow a real face photo, or no photo at all for avatars. Otherwise, this business community has appearance of a kindergarden full of Images of cartoon characters.

    For God's sake, please add an opportunity to "ignore"("hide", or otherwise eliminate) a particular thread from being shown in forum views or "new posts" link output. There are threads I have zero interest in, but they are active. Interesting for some - no issues with this, to each his own. At this time, the only way to make such a thread invisible is to "ignore" the member who started it, which is not a solution!
