    I'm figuring these ads are the below listed objects/images in the "Media" section of "Page Info" because only pages that have these autoplaying video ads have these objects and images (according to "Media") embedded. I've checked multiple pages. When there are 2 video ads I have both objects and two image links, for one video it's still both objects but only one image, etc.

    Object - http://tag.ybrant.hiro.tv/iframes/sc...cial-3.2.7.swf

    Since a few days all ads shown at the top of the page look like this: http://i.imgur.com/XAxDP.png

    ads: http://content.yieldmanager.edgesuit...1a4b7fcc44.swf
    http://content.yieldmanager.edgesuit...bb09e730c4.swf
    http://content.yieldmanager.edgesuit...54ffbbe736.swf

    This happens in Chrome 18, but not in Firefox, and it happens every time I view a page. This is in the netherlands btw.

    I don't mind ads, but they should at least take up all their assigned space.

    Since a couple of days, there are audio ads (sometimes two or even three simultaneaously) running in the background whenever I visit the main page. Since there are no pop-up windows, I don't seem to be able to close those ads wich is really annoying. I use Google Chrome, btw.

    Please shut them down. Hearing an ad for a vaginal yeast infection medicine out of nowhere is mildly irritating...


    edit: sorry, I should've at least read a few recent posts.

    See my post just a few posts above. This has been reported and I am sure the admins will look into it.

    It looks like the main content window is resizing after load to compensate for the site skin; are you clicking on the link while it's still loading so that it registers on the ad instead of on the bluetracker link?

    I'll talk to the ad guys to see if we can avoid that annoying change.

    I'm on this site on and off throughout the day, I'm using the latest ver. of Chrome and am yet to see anything that has been described... yet, I'll keep this tab open on this topic just in case though. As mentioned above, I do notice that the screen does indeed take time to re-size itself making hasty clicks miss their target, usually landing on a topic above or below the target... yet to hit an advert though.

    Also using adblock+, which is successfully blocking all ads (afaik) - ver. Version 2.5.32

    I click the link once and a huge screen sized window opens for Tera asking for my birthday etc. It doesn't happen every time.
    No I am not clicking it while it resizes but the resizing is also annoying.

    Which browser are you using, and can you grab a screenshot and the URL of the popup?

    I got two flash ads on auto-play, when I opened four tabs this morning (opened via the "Recent Posts" box on the front page).

    It's getting better *sigh*... dual auto-play. I mean, come on! You can't be serious.
    If you do not have any control about your advertising, you should change your advertising partner or whatever/wherever you get your ads from. It's just plain not acceptable.

    Like I said in previous posts, I'm not against advertising. But I'm against these flash auto-playing nazis.
    I'm getting one of the auto-playing ads every 5-10 threads I open. And this is a deal-breaker for me. So I don't think, I'll visit MMOC that often that I used to be anymore.

    Wow. Didn't thought that it can get worse.
    The actual videos in the flash ads, sometimes have some sort of trailer before. Which was a product ad this time. Aspirin (headache tablet) to be precise. And on this "pre-ad" you're not able to pause. You _have_ to hear and view it. The Pause button is visible, but not clickable.

    http://i45.tinypic.com/dgghz9.jpg
    Was in this thread http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...rchased/page14

    The picture shows only the actual ad, not the Aspirin pre-ad. I was to slow to grab it.

    Anyway, don't you think that's a bit heavy of an obtrusion? Please do something. We're not in 2002 anymore, where everyone and their mother has to get annoyed by some flash-nazi-ad.
    Please let me know how to help further. Thank you.

    I hope something flashing every 0.1s comes under this category.

    From New Zealand and using Google Chrome.

    http://tinypic.com/r/29zsieb/6
    Here's where Chrome was telling me the image came from.
    http://clixx.sitescout.netdna-cdn.co...0c-18d0d35.gif

    The flashing image was circled in red and alternated between the background seen in the picture and the face of the woman every 0.1s or so. It was fast to the point of making anything else on the page with that in view pretty hard to read. Got it on the mainpage then one after that.

    Theoretically the annoying sound ads should be resolved; let me know if you see them again.

    Great. Looks like it really is.
    I got none auto-playing ad yesterday nor today.
    Thank you very much!

    Damnit. Scratch what I just wrote.
    Just after posting the reply I went to the Guild Wars 2 subforum. And BANG there are two auto playing flash ads again.
    HTML Code:
    <object width="300" height="250" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="http://cdn.castaclip.net/mediacase/admeld/Sport_2_2/admeld-player-Sport_2_2.swf?d6f002e5f5a0ece39518af027329a496125c146d" id="cac_player_Sport_2_2" style="visibility: visible;"><param name="allowfullscreen" value="true"><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"><param name="wmode" value="transparent"><param name="flashvars" value="playerConfigUrl=http://cdn.castaclip.net/mediacase/admeld/Sport_2_2/player-config.json&amp;playMode=auto&amp;bufferTime=0&amp;playerTrackingUrl=cacTrackEvent"></object>
    Screen: http://i46.tinypic.com/favvqa.jpg

    And with that I'm finally done with it. Installing AdBlock right now. Sorry for that. But I'm sick of this crap.

    Huh.

    I just clicked the "add infraction" button, and right as the page started to load, I got a pop-up window for a survey.

    Occasionally when I load a page, it sends me straight to the bottom, with an error message where one of the ads are supposed to be

    http://i.imgur.com/tUYbl.png?2

    It has been awhile, but I just got one, and I decided to click the "try again" button, and it brought up an ad, so I'm guessing there's something wrong with it

    It doesn't quite fit the category, but a Call of Duty ad spreading across the window kept the content from loading. This is what I ended up with after closing the ad.

    Man, friggin' Call of Duty... Ruins everything.
