Particularly when a page first loads. Yeah, the ads infiltrate the threads and cause things to bounce.

 

Yeah, I'm now getting an overlay of ads at the top and the bottom of the page too...

 

This is getting ridiculous on mobile especially...

How does one close an account? I'm starting to regret choices.

 

Ummm ... you can't? I mean, we as mods/admins could close or ban it, but we're pretty clear on the one account per person policy in the official board guidelines, meaning if you try to rejoin, you'll likely get banhammered [emphasis mine]:

 

Quote

5. No Alternate ID's - One Account per Individual

We operate a one account - one person policy. Creating an alternate ID will result in both the original account and the alternate ID being permanently banned immediately. Sharing accounts among a group of people is also forbidden.  Do NOT create a new account if you forgot your password.  Please use the forgot password option on the login screen.

 

Look, OK, so a concept thread didn't go so well. Go back to the drawing board, regroup, use it as a learning experience, and come back stronger. Trust me, it's not worth nuking an account over.

Does anyone else have this issue? Everytime Im on the boards the page constantly is bouncing up and down. I think it may be because of the ads but Im not for sure. Its been happening for quite a while now.

It's been doing the "bounce" thing for a like a year(?) for me. I'm like 90% it's because of the ads, so I don't really know if there's a viable fix.

If you're getting spammy ads, you can report them at the link in the thread below. You will need the ad URL, though.

The common theme is that people experience these things only on this site. 

Not true, i have seen the same popups on other sites.

Not to same extent at least in my case. It’s recently gone to having both a top and a bottom banner ad. As I type this right now in phone, there is quite a large ad above the keyboard. Pressing the “x” on it replaced it with a different ad and then pressing “x” on that replaced it with a top banner ad.

 

At least I haven’t had that ad for that Amazon Prime show (that would freeze the site until it had a chance to do it’s full animation of making a border around the whole screen of my phone) any time recently. Anybody else get that one?

Hey I had a thought about this and feel free to shut the idea down due to the wording by the staff:

with all the changes happening, I tend to look here for all my logo news and updates. And while I understand the purpose of the ban, having been on the boards for many years and seeing how people have difficulty removing emotion from discussions, perhaps until it involves the actual logo, still have bots post the news about one specific NFC East team (that as of this moment no longer has a nickname) into an all-encompassing locker thread so we can at least follow up on the news until a proper discussion can take place?

Any claim that this site doesn’t have significantly more issues than literally ANY non-porn site on the internet are false defense mechanisms. 
 

I browse hundreds of sites, and only have the ridiculous ad hijack issues, virus warnings, ads that consume the border and bottom of the page, and the nonsense I have today on this site. 
 

Chris sold his soul to the devil with these ads. I’d gladly pay a membership fee to make this site legit and not have it affiliated with the trash ads. 
 

it’s almost like there was a checkbox for “crap mode” and “yes” was selected by mistake.

Personally, I don't have a problem with the ads. The one on the side doesn't bother me, but occasionally I'll accidentally click on the bottom one when it pops up. In comparison to other sites, it really isn't all that bad.

Who here remembers that Europe football league that Josef-Bretones made, that should be in the Goldmine.

Why? Personally I thought he had some pretty good concepts, but it wasn't mindblowing. The Goldmine seems to be reserved for a). epic meltdowns, b). random, hilarious threads, or c). a combination of the 2.

That doesn't mean we aren't willing to take a look.

Yeah I’ve noticed the ads on the site have progressively gotten worse. To the point where it’s damn near in your face the entire time (at least on mobile). The “bounce” thing happens way more than it should and can be irritating at times. Especially when you’re trying to read something and it sporadically shoots you up 5 comments above.

 

I agree with @BringBackTheVet when it comes to potentially paying a membership fees just to get the ads out of the way. It’d be one hell of a stretch, but an app on iOS and Android would be worth looking into for a site like this.

Just ban me forever. I am not joking, and calmed down.

All you have to do is reset your password with random gibberish if you're so hell-bent on not being here.  You don't need us for that.
