  • Ad Problems

    Anyone else getting malware warnings from their antivirus on the main site from the ads? I am using Avast!, and it just blocked an ad.

      My anti-virus keeps warning me about a trojan when I'm viewing the forums. It just started today.

        Intrusive Ads --> Adblocker Enabled

        I know the site needs to make money, I know it's difficult to manage the ads that some of these companies will put up on the site, I know that the banner ads don't pay as well, and I know sometimes there's not many choices.

        With that being said, if I have multiple (in the case I just experienced, 5) videos with audio autoplay when I load the page, I'm going to have to enable adblocker for the site, and I don't want to. I imagine there are others who feel the same, so if there's anything you could possibly do, or if I at least felt like you were trying to work on issues like this, I'd be more inclined to keep the adblocker off.

            Walt tries to not allow any autoplay or sound ads, but it's tough to stop them all

            Use adblock, Walt's rich anyway. Have you seen his house. 1%er.

                I think Walt does a pretty good job with ads.

                  I keep getting this error on both IE and Chrome.

                  I cleared my history in both.

                  I can only get on if I hide my IP, then it logins in, otherwise that error. Any advice?

                    Yeah, the video ads need to go away.

                    You are the 3rd person, including myself, that has been having this issue. I think it deserves its own topic.

                      Seriously, the autoplaying video ads can go **** themselves. Just had 3 of them on the draft page, and it makes the site chug along ridiculously slow.

                      Walt, please destroy with extreme prejudice.

                            Ad Problems

                            Walter I?ve had two problems with ads on this site lately.

                            One is major. On my phone only, immediately as I load the site, it takes me into the app store to download an app. I cannot access the site.

                            The other is less as important but sometimes in the past few days I?ve seen certain works hyperlinked. Haven?t clicked on them but probably not your intention.

                            I need to be able to check in on my phone

                              Agreed 100%, this site is unusable on my phone now.
