video adds on WF

anyone sick of the intrusive video adds on WF?

I am logged in and these videos on the side start up. To make them more annoying is the sound running over my music.

anyway to stop these?

1 question and 1 request:

Were you actually logged into your account or just perusing the forum in stealth mode (as a guest)?


If there are any more of you who are having this same problem please try to get a screenshot of the ad and attach it into this thread. A URL would be great.

If you don't want others too see you online, you can turn off your online visibility.
here: https://www.wranglerforum.com/profile.php?do=privacy
and here: https://www.wranglerforum.com/profile.php?do=editoptions

Otherwise I don't see a reason why you wouldn't log in. You see less ads too.
BUT if you do see invasive video ads that play music or re-direct. Please provide us with all the information you can get. Just describing what you see without screenshots or links doesn't narrow it down to what we need to block. There are billions of ads out there.

In my case I was logged in. I always log in. I thought all was well but no. As I was writing this a center add popped up with video and sound over riding my music player. I took a screen shot and was going to post but then the browser locked up.

FWIW I do not have a "buggy" computer. every other other site I visit works fine. I use chrome and the browser dumps everything when exiting.

Anyway I just installed a ad blocker extension and that seems to be working good so far.
