Ads
 
Been a supporting member this Forum for a while...recently as I am logging in ads start playing and make me wait to complete logging in....IDK who has control over this, but I do know that it makes me not want to visit the site as much. Part of being a supporting member is we don't have to deal with as many ads, of course if we are not logged in than we are subject to the ads, but if it is not letting you log in till you watch the ad, which would stop the ad from being shown...hmmmmm......I guess we have a couple choices never log in again...or never log out...either one hurts the Forum...but it isn't the same Forum it once has changed a lot in the last year or so.

I concur..... total BS.....

Thank you for becoming Supporting Members.

When you become a supporting member the ads do not automatically go away.



For our new Supporting Members who wish to remove ads.

At the top of any page click on "User CP"

Scroll down the left column to "Settings and Options"

Click on "Edit Options"

Scroll down to "Miscellaneous Options"

At the bottom of that section select "Turn Off Right Column"
and check "Remove Sponsor Ads"

That should take care of it.

What about these new pop-up video ads? Are those going to continue?

I've never seen those on any other forums, talk about annoying and driving away members.

Hi there, which pop-up video ads are you seeing? You shouldn't be seeing any especially when logged in. Whenever you get the chance please try clearing your browser's cache and cookies and then re-starting your computer. Please let me know. :)

I am getting one, it is for the Optima battery, makes me wait 10 seconds before I can do anything, clearing cache & cookies does nothing, had it pop up twice, I am using Safari.

I do not mind the ads on the side and bar at top, but this is not cool

jp2611 07-21-2013 04:59 PM

Yep Optima battery happened again...today SUN about 6pm......maybe the reason I don't always get it is sometimes I get on WF from a link...but if I pull it from my bookmarked different story....HELLO OPTIMA...even though I had screen name and password in the boxes couldn't click in as my screen went darkish and than the commercial.

JDsDream 07-21-2013 05:48 PM

I am sending this to AutoGuide to take a look at.

jp2611 07-22-2013 08:42 PM

Optima battery again at 9:41pm Mon eve...guess what battery I will not buy now?

MCDavis 07-23-2013 02:11 PM

I'm not a supporting member, and the only ads I ever see are at the top of the page. Never get pop-ups of any type. Normally using Firefox 22.0 when I'm on here.

Wondering if it's in jp's settings in his computer somewhere?

optima battery ad
 
is there a way to stop the optima battery ad? I cannot log in without having to watch the ad. It takes over my computer. Just now I had to watch it before I logged in and again after I was able to log-in.

I also don't mind the ads to the sides or the top, I can ignore those. Sometimes I use the companies. The pop up ad is going a little too far.

we are working on the optima adds, and once a fix for it has been figured out, trust me, we will let you know.

now as far as the sidebar adds, since you are a supporting member, you can actually turn those off. it is one of the options under your User CP

the pop up video ad on login is a strong deterrant to me re-visiting the site. Please balance your need for revenue with your need to retain your "customer" base.

Is it also the battery one or something different? Also do you use IE, chrome, firefox, other?

MCDavis 07-24-2013 02:59 PM

Although I'm not a mod here, I am one elsewhere and I have some friendly advice for some of you:

You're not helping fix the problem if all you do is post a complaint or thinly veiled threat. The best thing you can do is post what ad you're seeing, when you're seeing it, and what browser you're using including the version number (Firefox 22.0 for example). That's why I posted above, to try and give them some additional info to go on.

Try to help solve the problem, please.

Hi everyone, as mentioned we are working on finding a solution to this issue as quickly as we can. Thank you for report and the information provided so far.

I ask that users only post if they are experiencing this issue and please continue to respond with this information if possible:

-Is this ad only appearing for IE members? Which version (7,8,9,10)?
-Does anyone have a URL for the ad?
- What pages does the ad appear on?

Sorry for any inconvenience.

Regards,
CG - Community Support
