Pop up add making site un-useable

14 Apr 2014 13:02

Every link!

Yes me too.

I stood up for Daniel in a previous thread which had someone complaining about a pop-up appearing on the home page. That one could be tolerated as it only appeared once and then when you continue to search through the main page and click on links it didn't appear again - it was also consistent with other news sites around the place.

But this one for the forums everytime you go across to scroll down the page it seems a new pop up ad appears for every new page you open. Unacceptable :mad:

I have constant problems with the full page ads for TKMaxx, 3 and Legoland (I'm in the UK) popping up and obliterating the page content. They're supposed to sit at the sides, presumably in the hope the punter accidentally clicks them, but at the moment they're totally getting in the way. I have some screenshots but there doesn't seem to be a way to post them without an URL.

i also recommend using adblock. if the admin (or management) can't "do ads" properly then they will have ZERO ads on my screen.

Can't find at the moment the real adds on the forum thread, but wanted to show what kind I see. I wouldn't complain if it wasn't because I'm sure it normally wouldn't be tolerated if users here posted such images. I just hope users here are allowed the same freedom as the adds.
