irritating ads

There is something I have noticed lately with the ads in the right hand sidebar. There are two boxes that randomly display video ads. When the ads start, they take control of the screen and if I am scrolling down the page it changes direction on its own to center the ads. When the ads are playing they interfere badly with forum operation. Its quite impossible to scroll around, and typing a post is just as impossible. Can anything be done about this?

Are you still encountering this? If so can you screenshot when you next see it?

Still happening. I'll see if I can get a shot of the video frame on the screen.

Ok so it starts like this, a buffering screen


That transitions back and forth with this screen


and eventually it transitions back and forth with this


After a cycling through these screens many times the video plays. This whole thing happens over the course of a few minutes, during which time it is fighting for control of scrolling the screen.
Usually I can get the frame to a position where I can close it, but sometimes its trying to play at the top and bottom of the side bar at the same time.

Hey arathol,

We would love nothing more than to get rid of these nuisances for you. We can have these ads removed but we need a little more information. If the problem is still occurring, could you do your best to get the URL link of these? You can right click on it and go to "Copy image address" if you don't want to click on it.

With these links, we can get our techs to remove them right away. Anytime these annoying pop up ads come up like that, send us screenshots and (more importantly) the URL links.

Thanks for your patience and cooperation on this matter.

Cheers,
Natalie
