Is it possible to relocate that box to a more comfortable area on the page? It is so annoying hitting it instead of submit or preview when I am editing a post on a touch screen.

If I recall one of Rook's recent posts correctly he intends to revamp some things to make it more mobile friendly, and I believe this has been brought up before. Just an fyi.

This is a known issue that has been on the to-do list, due to things such as achievements and loopholes in the mod tooling taking priority and lack of dev time, it got pushed back.

Take comfort knowing you've generated revenue for a site full of great info and people that you utilize free of charge.~


Edit: That said, still not sure why the ads keep trying to hook me up with Greek mail order brides. That's not even my fetish, no idea where they got the idea I dig on Greek girls.

Please, we both know you would prefer a Greek girl covered in Tirokafteri.

I don't know what this is and given the context I'm afraid to Google it at work.

Ah, see, this is one of those discussions that's going to get you more than you bargained for.

I do not like mixing food and sex. At all. I don't want a woman covered in chocolate syrup or whipped cream, I don't want to eat fruit or sushi off of a naked woman.

I really like food. I really like women.

But I do not like to diminish the value or my enjoyment of either by trying to enjoy them both at once.

honestly, iv been having issues with these ads as well. Most likely the video ads. Aside from hating any ad that talks or makes noise, it is ramping up my cpu and lagging me up a ton. Some times even freezing my browser. Its incredibly annoying.

That's why I do AdBlock now.

Until idiot boy/Scragg fixes that issue, I'm blocking all ads.

i get the site needs ads to operate, and im ok with that. Site does a lot of good for me, so i have no compulsion to block ads that they need to operate. But when it starts to repeatedly freeze my browser or lag to me the hell... then it makes one wonder. - Granted, i know i have an older machine, but iv been on here for many a years with no issues. This one is only recently.

I feel the same. I have a Windows 10 that lags only with this site, and only with video ads.

Like I said, I'll turn it off when they get rid of the video ads.

For the record, the ad content/types are completely beyond my level of access. I can move around the boxes, but their placement is, in a lot of cases, determined by the ad network.

I'll see what I can do.

I bet if you complain enough, they will eventually change it.

Especially when you point out that video ads are causing more people to use AdBlock or other similar programs.

Remember, it's not just this website that profits from ads.

I know Scragg has explicitly said before to notify about any ad that has audio as we're not supposed to get those. Whether or not it's still true however is unknown.

iv been using this site on this comp (and even older ones) without issue for many a years. This is only recent with the video ads.

That being said, i was about to get a new comp. I even designed one out if you remember. Up near 2k. But, as usual, ***happened. And not that im disabled and out on my own, my budget it abysmally low. So no 2k computer in my future. I havnt bothered yet until i get everything else sorted out again, but id like to design a cheaper one. Much cheaper. But something that would still work well for me.

A bit of an update on this; I've actually spoken with him about this on two occasions and he has told me that these are essentially slipping through the cracks on Google's end. They shouldn't be appearing here.

That advertising is the most powerful force in this country. Hold onto your ***, because it's only going to get worse.

There is an option on the ads themselves to mute or block specific ads or advertisers from displaying. If you see something like a video ad and it's bogging down your system, click on the AdChoices link and a new window will appear. This is where you can opt out.
