Proposal To Effectively Eliminate Ad-Free Viewing Staking Reward

When we introduced advertising for the first time we deployed a feature to encourage staking SPORTS for the benefit of having an ad-free experience when viewing from SportsTalkSocial.com. This was set at a reasonable amount of stake for the time at 500,000 SPORTS. A year an a half later and that's not nearly the same metrics when compared to how many SPORTS are available which is limiting the number of ads we are actively displaying.
Normally I wouldn't do a proposal for updating the website but since this was a promised feature in the past I wanted to have the community's approval for this change before adjusting anything by myself. I would like to effectively end the ad-free staking reward by changing the required stake, that was initially set at 500,000, to 50 billion SPORTS. This would in turn lead to everyone using SportsTalkSocial.com receiving ads that help support the community.
I've split this change out from other site updates as a single change PR on GitHub. You can review that change here.
There is no cost for this. I am only including script to return the 100,000 SPORTS proposal fee.
Benefits to SPORTS
This would increase the number of ads available to be displayed through SportsTalkSocial.com and in turn help support the community's growth through our advertising efforts.
