Currently, premium members have the benefit of browsing the site without any ads. If it was a feature that expected/new viewers who come upon premium members' deviations and see no ads (which doesn't happen now), would that be awesome?

... or you could just install Adblock Plus and never be bothered again. Works fine for me, I never see any ads :shrug:

But general users/viewers/prospective 'clients'? Sure, that's possible on the user's end, but not likely something everyone has. A personal site of yours wouldn't have ads from other places that might annoy users who are visiting the site right? So, if one could pay to have that feature here perhaps? :shrug:

Perhaps it could be a premium add-on? I wouldn't mind having premium membership as is and then adding a few dollars more to remove ads for my viewers, providing it is only a few more dollars.

That's possible.
Wouldn't this still be a perk though as is? One thing they have already done is not to do it part by part, and offering all things in one go. So, one currently doesn't just  buy premium feature by feature, but at a bulk. Why for that specifically have it separate? :?

No real reason.

One thing about the current structure I find interesting is how there's a significant cost increase for those that buy the 7 year "till hell freezes over" membership compared to if they bought the same amount with multiples of lessor amounts.

Would be more awesome if they shared part of their ad revenue with artists, after all without our art deviantART would just be deviant. And many websites and social media sites are joining the bandwagon of splitting ad revenue with content creators to encourage them to keep creating content.

Which other sites are doing it?
With dA being so large, how would they do it? Who would they choose to do it with?

I'm fine with deviantART placing ads on my stuff. I don't really mind giving them ad revenue from my art. It's the least I can do to thank the staff for being so awesome! :dummy:

I wouldn't mind it at all if they did decide to remove the ads on premium members' pages, though. ^^
