I get the "new generation of smuileys" and every time you get your mouse anywhere near the fricking thing, it yells out "oh my god, go away"... thats the most annoying advert I have evenr had the pleasure of seeing and I wish it would go away.

I didnt realise that adverts could activate without the user actually clicking on them, therefore choosing the enter option?

Seriously, I dont want it screaming the above all day long so it would be really really good if you were to remove it!

I can not use firefox or block the adverts.

The entire world finally knows what us Croatians have known all along.

I've been meaning to say the exact same thing for a week now. It's the most annoying ad I have ever come across online. Yeah, I'm too lazy to figure out what's happened to my adblock, but you shouldn't encourage people to block the ads anyway, shouldn't you? They're there to be seen, but they sure as hell shouldn't start shouting to people. :frustrat:

Good stuff...

I like the kind of hands off management style that VS is promoting...

Oh, and by "drops by" do you mean as in "visits the managerial lounge for a glass of scotch" or do you mean as in "communicates about the issues at hand and moves on to fixing these issues"? :undecide:

Is Trueblueguy a "techie"? If not could someone tell VS to get one here to try to solve the problems?

As a last resort I'm volunteering (if handed access to the database or code or whatever it's called in the official computerological lingo) to doodle around for a bit and see if I can unbug the buggeries that are ongoing. I'm inspired by that Palin character and am not afraid of trying out new stuff. I'm feeling a bit mavericky!

He indeed drops by to communicate about the issues at hand.

TBF is not a techie himself. He is a Forum Manager (different from the FM's we have on XT). In that capacity he relays site issues to VS' tech staff, who then go to work on it. However, we are just one of many sites in their care and they have but a small staff, so it may take a while. VS employs forum managers such as TBF so that they don't have to visit sites themselves, so don't expect to actually see them posting here.

he drops by reads the stuff that are reported to him, communicates about issues and stuff and than he reports those issues to the vs tech crew. thats his job. basically he's the messenger...not just for this forum but for all sporting forums in vs network.

once issues are reported they are out of his hands and are completely in the hands of vs tech crew which seems to be either:

a) filled with loads of lazy asses

or

b) seriously understaffed.

some information i've been reading on suggest that this is a picture of entire vs tech crew taken at the last company party



as for volunteer work if you're telling us this, and it seems you are, than you are telling it to the wrong folks. its vs you should contact.

Ah, I see. As I suspected then, message received. My apologies to Truebluedude for almost shooting the messenger. :embarass:

I see people are already complaining, so I made this screenshot for no reason really.

i also dont understand how this forum can advertise other forums!

i dont get any ads when i use firefox, but when using explorer i see all these ads that people are talking about. the one that screams shit out is bad, but i dont understand the ad about a different forum, which is sport related or maybe just football (theroar.com). what the **** are they thinking?
