PostSubject: Messed up ads   Wed Apr 01, 2015 3:56 pm

Im not going to complain about the ads or anything, nothing is free, but is there any way of filtering them? I just had a "your android needs an update" one that redirected my browser to some site and had a pop up without me doing anything. I tried to hit "back" several times but ended up having to close my browser and reload the site.

then next ad when I got back was for "iraqi dinar"... which seems shady to me (who wants that?)

Get yourself Ad-block and never look back!

Let me know if what the others suggested to you works or not.

If not, and if this poses as a huge problem for others, I can see about getting credits needed for the forum in order to block them. But usually installing ad blockers take care of the problem

Embala... what exactly do you mean by "they don't work"? You can't download them, or do you have problems after you do download?

It means that there are still adds - no difference noticible. I'll talk to Storm again whether I've understood something wrong ... O.o

Ads are usually not a problem for me. It's slightly annoying when one causes a "nervous mouse" - then I simply refresh until I get a well behaving advertisement. Wink I get along well with the ads, Kin.

Hopefully Hammer's problem will be solved by Ad-block. *crossing fingers*

I use Firefox - same as Storm. And it works well for Storm.

As I said , the ads are normally no bother for me. Just puzzled by the illogicality of the not working ad-bloc.

Firefox should be all right. Are there any messages you get?

Embala-> does a red icon with the letters "ABP" show up in the toolbar in the right top of the screen? If you click it it shows the settings. It may be disabled?

It's showing and it's activated. (at least it shows me the option to deactivate it)

@Nibblet This "ad gone crazy" looks like this:



I wonder if TrollhHammer addressed the same problem when he made this thread.

Well that is certainly a big old mess of stuff! Unfortunately, we still can't do anything about it. We don't have the funds needed to remove ads for everyone. All I can suggest is turning it off and on again or installing adblock. It's probably just a glitch and will go away on its own soon I love you

As long as it is Google's problem (programmer messed up, I guess) and not one of our forum itself I can patiently wait until it disappears again. Thanks for taking a look, Nibblet. Smile

I have Adblock and have no issues. The "mess" of code you see, I saw on another section of the forum (Fanfic? I posted about it) - but nowhere else on the forums. (And I use Firefox)

I don't have Adblock on the new comp and regulary get advertisement in this small "banner box" above. May 12th I had this mess every time I got a "Google ad" (from Google, not for Google) - no problems when the source of advertisement was something else.
I know those Google ads - they can be turned off individually with a click. That day this little button was not visible and "turn off" didn't work. Instead there was this mess of visible code. I think one of the programmers messed with a code. Yesterday things were fine again - only "working" Google ads. They must have fixed it. A Google problem, not a Forum problem.
(Sorry, it's hard for me to put it in words. Hope you'll get the sense.)

No idea why Ad Block didn't work for those damaged advertisements ... doesn't work well for me anyway. I always got the Google advertisements while I had Ad Block on the old comp. :/

Thanks for the tip, Kaza! Smile I'll consider it in case the ads get on my nerves again.

Thanks, Em! I still didn't get notified. I will look into this and see what I can do to fix it
