    Ads (again)

    Remove this ad: become a supporter
    I know ads help the site and all..
    Since I switched to Google Chrome, and was left with no Ad-Block.
    I noticed, there were so many ads!
    I don't mind the ads, as long as there not shouting
    "OH MY GAWD, NO WAY!"
    or advertising Lesbian Porn, or Penis enlargements in the siderbar, or Ukrainian Brides.
    and they also seem to overlap the page sometimes, and this is on a 1440x900 screen res.

    I think I may have been a big vague in explaining, there was one ad in the sidebar about "penis enlargement" and the other ads about the other ads I was talking about, like talking ads, and ukranian brides and the making out ladys (I don't have anything against them, it's just, there a bit obtrusive)

    i got a lot of pop up windows as well. the most common was something like 'luna parking.' and others that kept beeping or making some kind of noise.

    i think gym was talking about those smilies probably? like the ones that you move your mouse over and they say stuff. either that or the ads like 'congratulations, you have been selected to win a free iPod Nano'

    I do apologise about the problems they are causing.

    I will have another word with the company serving the ads and tell them to stop displaying the pop up ads, as they are the worst.

    I'm still not sure what you mean by sidebar. I assume you mean the area where it tells you who's online, 'what's new' since last time, the donation area and the poll... that's the sidebar and there shouldn't be any ads there other than the Google ones....

    I've never gotten a pop-up ad, either.
    At home I use Firefox 3, and at school we use Internet Explorer 7.

    And other ads on here I've never had a problem with, either.
    They were just normal Google ads, basically.
