I just noticed this today, as far as I know it hasn't ever happened before.
I'm a tab-browser. I scroll through the different sub-forums and when I see a thread I want to look at, I open it in a new tab and keep scrolling through the sub-forums until I have enough reading material to browse whilst sitting on the throne or something. Today, I did my usual "new-tab, new-tab" about 5 or 6 times when my speakers starting blabbing all kinds of crazyness at me! I had to go to each new page and stop the video ads from playing (Some had 2 going at the same time on one page). Some of them I would pause but they would reload to the beginning and start playing again.
I know some people are going to say "Don't want ads? Become a supporter!" But I just wanted to say the video ads with audio are a little overkill IMO. It's like beating casual users into being a supporting member or they'll be bombarded with videos. Almost as bad as pop-ups from the early 2000's!!
I realize there may not be much that can be done about it, I just wanted to speak my mind a little bit.
I Love Jeeps!
