advertising

12 Mar 2016 22:10

Now I'm getting 2 video ads at once, including some woman cooking eggs which I see every time I check the site. Okay, the advertisers are the paying customers, but there's a break-even point where it just becomes too painful to visit the site, and video ads are particularly distracting. I suggest a reconsideration of the use of these ads.

The other day my computer was really dragging
AHA! One tab was opened to CN
Sometimes I forget, you just jump in, jump out.
Very aggressive advertising layout

The reason I'm on the site right now is a pop-up/pop-replace jumped me out of CN and insists my Flash player is out of date and I need to use the update they conveniently forced on me from the "Adobe" server that uses the domain "a h c h u y e y a n z h e . c o m" (hopefully putting spaces in breaks the automatic link routine.)

HEY CN!!!! You or one of your advertisers has been HACKED!!!!!!

Thanks for pointing that out, I'll make sure the Dev team is notified.

I agree. It covers content and it keeps popping up on every page, pushing the site close to a no-go status.

These ads (on the mobile version) are getting a bit much. The latest one, buried in the TDF Stage 3 report, manages to disable the Autoplay setting (mine is OFF), and turns ON the speakers, before pumping out a loud 30 sec video.
