I see you have a meter that shows how much money BYOND makes per month. I don't think the ads are but a small fraction of that? I think the ads are a big reason BYOND can't get many players these days. I'm not saying get rid of them. Perhaps consider rethinking how you display them? They don't have to be so annoying. Just seems like there's a better way to display them.
Maybe consider what Tom said in this 2013 post regarding making the Exe Maker a paid dev membership:
