That bobbing ad at the top of the threads is very annoying. Is this what we have to look foward to in the "new finheaven". I hope not.

I haven't seen this ad yet. Things are being cleaned up, and the "New" FinHeaven will be better then ever.

i understand the need to make money, but there is a limit to what will be tolerated. This ad shakes back and forth as long as you are on the post.

Agreed. There are things in motion right now that will hopefully clear this up very soon. For a little while longer please understand while we keep the cat in the bag...

It seems like lately all the annoying ads are showing back up. The expanding banner ads, and the ad that I think the post is talking about, that says you are the 1,000,000th visitor or something lame and "click to claim your prize". It makes a beeping noise as long as you view the post. A completely bush league spam ad.

I was just coming to make a thread and complain about the ads. Great minds think alike. You guys have to get rid of the chirping ads, or any ads that have sound for that matter. Glad to see you're working on it but for the love of God please hurry.:up:

I think there are 2 or 3 main "really annoying" ads, if anyone can take a screenshot for edvidence?

The sooner the better. Due to the fact these ads are annoying to both me and my coworkers, I'll have to take a break from Finheaven until they are gone.

Bet it has something to do with a certain spammer I ran into on this board in greatwade and his direct spam link he posted.

Hope the mods are listening.

They need to get rid of that advertiser.. do you get the same advertising in VIP? That would make someone not want to join

Hello,

I think it's the new ads they have here, they had to do something to help pay for the site cuzz most of the people that made up the "VIP" here, are gone.

noises/popups... we are aware of the problem and we are gathering edvidence/screenshots so that we can have the ad company remove them. Some of them are very annoying, but often if you hit the refresh button you'll rotate the PITA out and a tolerable one in.

I kind of figured as much. I am not sure how much control you have over the ads that display, but text ones like Adsense are much more pleasing to the eyes and less annoying than these "free smiley" blinking and beeping ads.

I realize that this site needs ad revenue to pay the bills, but on the other hand you don't want to drive people away.

ads that make noise are like a death sentence at work.

And they've also been there for a week or so now. I keep thinking my computer is bugging out and then I realize, oh, it's the dumb annoying ad

yes you do. And it's been a problem for over a week now despite a thread on it.

I also keep thinking my computer is bugging out and it takes me a few seconds to realize it was the seizure ad. Usually I start shutting down all my programs, including this browser. Great way to drive people off the site, I hope that ad is worth a lot of money

It is one of those damn banner ads that say click here you are the 10000000000000000 person to see this ad and you have won a ****ing toaster. IT IS DRIVING ME ****ING NUTS.

Okay as of right now the problem "SHOULD" be solved. IF anyone gets an intrusive ad (noise, screen shake, spyware alerts, popup alerts...) PLEASE immediately screenshot it for us to use.

Any other questions complaints or smart remarks... pm or post it here. ;)

Can you have them remove the noise at least?

if you are on firefox, check out the Flashblock add-on. Google "flashblock" and it should be the first thing that comes up. It blocks all flash animations unless you click on them.

All:

We asked, begged and eventually threatning the advertiser to remove the annoying ads from the cycle. They have yet to comply so we have pulled all of their ads until they can get them right. We will not allow the ongoing distress of these cheap ads to infringe on our environment.

You our membership and fans desrve better than that. When the ads are properly done we will return them to the pages.

Until then enjoy the site.
