• Welcome to Senior Gamers!

    Senior Gamers [SNR] is a community for mature gamers aged 25+ years who primarily play on the PlayStation consoles.

    We used this website from June 2012 until March 2020. Technology moved on during this time and we have now moved to Discord. If you are familiar with it already you'll know how quick and easy it is to use. If you haven't tried it yet, you really should!

    You can browse this archived website to see what we posted over the years.

    You can join us on Discord to see what we've posted more recently and to chat. Click on the link below to find us. We hope to see you there!

Many of you will be aware that we display advertisements to guests and also to members with Bronze level benefits. Adverts aren't displayed to Silver level benefits and above. See the Benefits page for details. Basically, we generate a very small amount of income from adverts towards the upkeep of the site.

I have added a feature that will detect if a guest or Bronze level member is using an Adblocker and it will display a message to notify them of this. Guests cannot dismiss the message but Bronze level members can for a short period of time.

This won't affect the vast majority of you but if you are a guest or a Bronze level member who is using an Adblocker to hide adverts, I would be grateful if you could disable it for this site, as viewing those ads will help a little towards supporting this community.

Thanks. :)

I've got an Adblocker but I'm platinum so not seeing adverts anyway.

Does the message that appears make it clear that ads are not displayed to members, I can imagine that someone who could potentially become a member would be put off if they think that the ads are a "feature" of the site.

There is a separate notification to visitors about registering and being an active member to view the site without adverts. However, I do like your suggestion so I have amended the Adblock message to say the same thing too. :)
