Before this thread gets totally hijacked, let's put this one to bed: spaterson was correct. If you didn't have an active website on Rogers prior to the switch to GeoCities, you didn't get the ad-free webhosting. You can underline ad-free all you like in the above letter, but that only applied to those who had a page up prior to the switch.
Not true Not true at all..
i have 7 email address with rogers all 7 have an active webspace account and was active before the change over and 6 out of 7 of my webspace accounts that are now active on the Geocities have ads.
so if what you say is true then why are the ads still on 6 of my webspace accounts??
I had two active web spaces before the switch. I moved them to the Yahoo/Geocities space before the deadline and they continued to be ad-free. I activated one after the Yahoo/Rogers love-in and it had ads. (I knew it would, but I felt like complaining.. so I did)
I emailed and spoke to people at Rogers about the whole mess and they wouldn't budge. I told them I was paying for LESS than I got before. That's when they hit me with the line "You're not paying for the web space. It's a freebee and always has been. You're only paying for internet access" or something to that effect.
I dug through my old email for a reply that they sent me. This is quoted from the email and explains the other condition to qualify for ad-free space:Customers who had active WebSpace account(s) prior to July 13th 2004 (in Ontario) and December 1st 2004 (in Newfoundland) are eligible for the ad free version of Rogers Yahoo! GeoCities.
However, all customers have access to the Rogers Yahoo! GeoCities service to create their own Website. Customers who were installed with the Rogers Yahoo! Hi-Speed Internet service after July 13th 2004 (in Ontario) and December 1st 2004 (in Newfoundland) will have access to the ad-supported version of the Rogers Yahoo! GeoCities service at no additional charge.
So there ya go. If you had the web space before July 13th, and you moved it over to the Yahoo space before the Feb 2005 deadline, it should be ad-free. If it's not, call and complain.
