Sorry guys, but the new ads are really intrusive and irritating. It will chase people away from the site! I'm just sayin..........

Hey!

Which ads are you referring too, desktop or mobile? Also, where are they located? Thanks!

Bob

The flash driven ones.. I keep on getting the pottery making one.

But.. I had to download a flash player stop app for my desktop, since it kills mozilla. Also, I cannot post anymore mobile since it tries running something there.

I thought I was the only one..

Hey guys I need your help tracking these down. What OS and browser are you using? Also, make sure you are logged in. If you can, please grab a screen shot of the ad, thanks!

Using firefox... any ad that pops up seems to kill things.. like right now I can't even reply to this message. I fired up IE which has the flash and java disabled. I'm running windows 7 on both computers. Using dolphin browser for my android phone.. but the last month or so has been so bad I can't do a thing.

Ok, thank you. I was just told the potter ad has been removed. Log out then in and let me know if it's still around. IB will have to check compatibility with Firefox and Dolphin.

using Safari on a Macbook pro, I don't have any issues with ads. I did have to stop using Chrome though.

I am still having problems with a lot of the ads from "adChoices" I can see in firefox that it's "waiting to receive data" etc and keeps on ringing up. I'm not sure if it's one, or it's all (at some times I have 4 or 5 firing away at me).

IE seems to be better, but firefox is useless as soon as I turn off my "flash blocker".

I'm not having any problems with Chrome.

Bob, as logged-in members, are we not supposed to see any ads at all? I just assumed that's how the site is supported. The ads I do see appear to be all on-topic, like Tire Rack.
