MODERATORS - Please Read:

Please remove this ad.

I pops up on its' own and takes 15 seconds before I can navigate. Once in a while is fine, it get it - need to pay bills. But it pops open every single new thread I open and sometimes just on it's own.


I don't know where it is coming from. I'm not even clicking anything. Please help and thank you..

I was just going to post the same thing. Not sure who the marketing genius is who authorized or recommended this but it is the dumbest thing i have ever seen and i have never been on any site that does this. There are freaking banner ads all over the site so i cannot imagine this particular annoying ass ad is bringing in any additional money. I know for me if i keep getting this ad i will be using other forums.

IE. I think I am on an old version, maybe 7.0? Not sure. It is a work laptop.

It only happens at home. When at work it does not happen.

Are you logged in? Normally, if your not logged in you will get more ads than if you weren't.

if you become a supporting member of the forum, you're given the option of "turning off" some of the sponsor ads. have you considered that?

1. go into your user control panel (User CP)
2. select "Edit Options"
3. scroll to the bottom of the page and select "Remove Sponsor Ads at the Top of the Forums/Discussions"

otherwise not much we can do....

Got this popup video ad today, Most annoying thing I've ever seen and it makes me NOT want to become a supporting member.

I notice in the screenshot that you have the option to close the ad. Use that for now and in the mean time, I will forward this thread to the powers that be (AG) and see if there is anything that they can do.

Holy Moly! Update your IE. Its 3 versions out of date. How out of date is the rest of the computer? Check your browser add ons, pop-up blocker, etc. If all else fails try an alternative browser like Firefox.
Happy Browsing!

When it's controlled by your companies IT computer guy there is not much you can do. I think the point that is being made is there are already enough ads, how greedy is this company? There are always choices that can be made.

There's a few forums over the years that I wouldn't even dive into because of ads all over. To me it feels sketchy virus wise so I won't explore those sites further.

Get Chrome with ad blocker. You'll never go back.

Hey. Alan here.

Few questions?

-Is this ad only appearing for IE members? Which version (7,8,9,10)?
-Is the a pop-up ad (pop up by hovering over an image OR text OR on its own)
-Does anyone have a URL for the ad?
- What pages does the ad appear on?

Thanks


~ alan, communty support

I was on safari when I saw it both times. Comes up when a thread loaded on its own, no hovering that I could tell.

It does it to me when I change pages or go from one section to another. IE here. No ad or popup.


Just Wrangler forum not responding due to long running script.

I'm a supporting member, I think it costs $10 or something like that, I have never seen that ad (or any large or annoying ad).

I don't want to be a jerk, and I don't want to sound like I'm talking down to anyone, my first thought was - 'If your getting this ad often enough to be annoying you that much, then don't you think your spending enough time here to become a supporting member and help finance your recreation?'.

Like I said, not to be a jerk, but, the site isn't free, the bandwidth isn't free, the advice you get here is helpful, saves you money, entertains and gives you access to a like minded community that shares some of your passions, if your here enough to hate the ads, then you should be helping the site stay operating, then the ads go away.

Agreed ^^^^^ but if I had seen an annoying amount of ads and messages like session timed out due to the script being too long I would have bailed and moved on. If I see overkill I avoid at all cost.

I get this ad using chrome. It pops up mostly from the forum index. Pops up all on its own and sometimes happens nearly every thread. It makes you watch 15sec worth of video before you can close it. I'm on satellite and have monthly data limits so this is beyond annoying. It hasn't come up for me today however, but many times over the last week.

I have been using Window 8 and IE 10, this site has been driving me crazy with ads and scripts slowing down the page. I downloaded Firefox and added the Ad Blocker Plus add on, now site is OK, no more adds and script issues. Simple fix.

I absolutely will not switch browsers just to be able to use this site. I've been using IE since it was invented and have zero problems with other sites. WF needs to fix the script issue if they want to avoid losing members. For now, it's off my list of sites I visit daily...and I'm sure I'm not alone from the number of complaints about this issue that reared it's annoying head in the last few days.

For those using firefox, there are some add-on's that cures almost all these problems:

Adblock Plus 2.2.4 (You control exactly what shows up on your screen, including ads)
Adblock Plus pop-up addon 0.8
Advertising Cookie Opt-out 1.5
DoNotTrackMe 2.2.9.520

Since using these add-on's(for over a year now), my browsing on this site and any any other has been sweet relief. If your not sure how to use/add them, invite a geek friend over to help ya fix your PC
