Super Annoying Ad

Yes I know many of you have ad-blockers.

This morning the forum is jumping all over the place. Forces me to the bottom of the page multiple times before letting me look at what I want. If I just let it go, it jumps back & forth as some Ford video ad decides whether it wants to be on the top of the page or the bottom...

I can't say for sure it's that ad, I just know that no matter where the page jumps me to, that ad is always visible.

Nothing happening on my end like that. A hardware issue maybe, or is it just at this site?

It's always this site; it causes me a lot of problems. Well, this stuff always seems to affect certain people but not others, and always seems to work itself out. I'll just deal with it.

Thanks!

No problem at my PC. I use Adblocker and it blocked 11 ads so far (6 on the reply page alone).

Have a happy and safe New Year all.

Don't drink and drive, you might spill it, and that would be a crime !

It can also depend on the browser used.

Get the Ghostery extension for Chrome. You can block all Ads and Trackers.

Well somehow I knew most of the responses would be along these lines...

I've visited this site quite a bit over the last couple years from my Mac, and since June on my Dell. Never an issue quite like this. But then I typically have issues on this site that I've never seen before anywhere else.

I get that the site exists partially due to ads, but this is obnoxious. The Ford video pops up everywhere; inside each response, on the side bar, all over, causing my screen to jump from top to bottom of the page repeatedly.

No other forum I've ever visited does this. I've never needed an ad-blocker till joining this site.

Oh well.

Thanks.

It's common on this site, as you can see.

annoying to the extreme.....

Forum is useless if ya can’t close ads.

So I guess I'll just install an ad-blocker. Just annoying cause I've never needed to with any other forum. Certain news sites and blogs have annoying ads popping up everywhere making it useless to try to read them, but never a forum in my experience, till this one.

Have you been to any of the other forums that use the same vBulletin software? I would think you might get the same thing there, seeing the engine driving the forum is the same. Lots of ones I peruse use it. Most of the ones listed at the bottom of the page I believe use it.

Have you tried an ad blocker to see if it happens then?

Just thinkin', but I sure ain't no techie myself. Just don't like seeing others having problems, as I sure hate when I have a computer problem.

It really has only been a small few that have ever had troubles in the past.

Not sure the platform of the other forums. I installed an adblocker. And of course, yes, it fixed the problem. I was just annoyed that I don't need adblockers except to visit this site.

I'll stop complaining.

Thanks!
