Report annoying advertisements [with screenshots, please]
1 Attachment(s)
Someone please make this a sticky..

As it goes, as far as I remember, we're not supposed to get advertisements with sound. So let this be a central place to report them, and one of the management can periodically report it to Ron Holmes (the dude who does our server), or he can stumble upon it himself to fix these things..

Post a screenshot of the ad so it's easier to know which is being spoken of, and hopefully in time we'll be rid of these annoying ****ing ads one by one :fero:

To start:

The endless complaining about such an annoying phenomena cast my brain to work, and my amazing brain came up with this bland idea..

Inácio January 3rd, 2007 01:53

I'll get in touch with the host.

And, as stated in this post, if XT members come across an annoying advertisement, you can get in touch with him directly via PM.


When doing so, it helps to make a screenshot, like what Tolga did. The ads differ from region to region, so it helps to be able to show what's wrong.

Hi guys... good idea. Yes, if anything is seen that has sound in it post it here. I'll ensure it is taken down ASAP.

This advertisement for 'The Dresden Files' takes over my screen. Like, it says roll over the advertisement to show the trailer. I don't even come close to the advertisement with my mouse and it opens a window/box that comes down and starts the trailer.

This happens every time, it's so stupid. I don't even know what it is, and I hate this Dresden guy already.

Does nobody else have this problem?

Can't somebody even answer it for me?

I only get (till now at least) the girl wearing a liangerie saying "she's only into players", UGO player ad, with no sounds or anything, i'm using mozilla as well so that should decrease the # of ads?

This is annoying as hell, the first image changes into the second when you accidentally move the mouse on it and it plays some stupid sound that allmost gave me a heart attack

The new AIG advertisement causes the rest of the forum not to be displayed. Only the advertisement shows at the top and nothing else loads. I have to refresh the screen and it'll only show if the ad is a different one. Get rid of AIG.

Kyle January 31st, 2008 15:49

yeah, AIG are shit

Capitan Totti January 31st, 2008 18:34

Sometimes when I try to load a page it only gives me the ad and nothing else. How come?
