Advertising Update

Recommended Posts

@Div I have been holding back on this, as all I seem to do is complain about ads, however, the page ads, that do not bother me in the slightest usually, do not go into the background when you click on your notification or mail icon, like this....

This has been happening for about 2 weeks now, really annoying.

iphone, mobile site.

Jesus, when did these adverts become so bad? It's almost enough to tempt me into a Platinum membership. They really can get themselves directly into the fucking sea.

Well worth going platinum.

I sometimes browse the site from different work computers without logging in, the amount and style of ads are very annoying.

Not sure if this is another defect that should be reported but sometimes on smaller resolution screens, the ads are blocking key functionality on the forum such as opening user profile.

Ok we've agreed to drop the "Pop Up" ad unit from mobile, that should be done today.

We're also implementing a whole new ad system on Friday morning so we'll see how that goes :thumsup2

I know the ads are a pain, but they keep my rock and roll lifestyle going, so just a case of balancing the wants of the advertisers versus the wants of the users.

The user experience is obviously paramount to me, hopefully these steps will help to improve it.

Last few days accessing the site on chrome via my phone most times when I check notifications it goes immediately to either a "Facebook satisfaction survey" which I'm assuming is spam and I have to close the tab or it takes me to the Google store to get me to install an app (Coral, Some Print services thing?).

Not the first time this kind of thing has happened but never as regularly as this.
