I'm a member here for more than 8 years and I can tell that I wouldn't mind if WebmasterWorld had more advertising, especially if it's targeted.
Maybe even with special offers for the members, that would make them look more carefully at what advertisers have to say.
Or make it optional: the member's group that accepts having ads have access to extra forums, even if not exactly the same number that paid subscribers have. This is easy to do in VBulletin maybe it's the case with this forum software as well, or it can be easily coded.
