I hate to be this guy but, should a first member be getting these merch posts at the bottom of our pages? In addition you can click on the close 'X' all day and half the time they are glitched and don't close. I'm ok with sponsored videos but this banner ad stuff is annoying on any site and especially on one I pay for.
At the least please debug or fix the issue where they are persistent no matter if you hit the close button.
Still love you guys but had to speak up on this one.
