Request (problem with video ads)

This is more of a request then a thread but perhaps others would like to chime in as well. Recently while enjoying reading the various threads I have been plagued by looping video ads running simultaneously. Before reading the post one has to either turn off their sound or quickly scroll through the post to find all the videos that are loping and close them or mute the sound. I understand why they might need the ads but seriously doo we need the looping videos? Can we stop looping video ads?

I have not seen any videos at all and I have been here for years.
If you are logged in I don't believe you should get any videos.
Maybe it's time to cleanup you browser cache.

I have not seen any looping videos either.

I also suggest the addition of an Ad Blocker to whatever browser you are using.

If you are browsing from a PC-type system, Firefox Browser and Ad Block Plus are your friend.

There are similar capabilities for other browsers.

Post what you are using to surf / browse and someone with the appropriate "tech" skills (PC - Apple - iGadget - Tablet - SmartPhone) can show you the way. Nobody should suffer as you have described !!!

Ads

So let me understand what you are all saying, that is, IGGY, 5picker, and Jeff and Abby, you see no ads at all while in the forums? Or, you see no looping videos? I wannacamp welcome to my world. Thanks everyone for your posts.

Ads

I have Pop up blockers enabled and third party blockers enabled. Thanks for the suggestion though. I think this issue stems from how this forum is financed or perhaps how the forums hosting provider hosts the web site. Just a thought.

Can you provide a screen shot of where the video ads are on your screen?
