Had this popup for 'George by Asda' twice in two page loads:
Direct.asda.com

I'm getting this or that blinkbox one on every other page load :/

I get this Toyota Yaris ad that pops up with a video.. http://i268.photobucket.com/albums/jj37/ngs616/toyotaad.jpg

You can minimize it and then its still got an overlay along bottom of window, then you can minimize it again and its got an overlay on left side of window. The X boxes don't close, they just minimize. I wouldn't mind as much if it started in the final tiny minimized box. I dislike that you have to enter the ads website to get rid of it completely.

Stupid Delma and Marta ad that pops up and creates a clickable area the size of the screen.

The "X Close" button doesn't work until after all of the graphics are animated in. Marginally less annoying than the gum ad that filled the entire page with a green liquid animation and didn't allow you to click on anything.

The Coke Ad.. Kill it.. Kill it.. Kill it with fire.. Die Die Die. (not sure if it applies to everyone outside of Australia)

*it takes up the entire top of the screen where the ModDB Logo and Nav Bar is*

Heck it even takes up the entire newspage's "features" section.

On a lower res display, that'd be across pretty much all the useful links :/

There is annoying black ops ad that keeps playing sound on every page that is loaded and you cannot mute it. here is how it looks like:

There are new adverts? With sound? YAY! Buuuuuuuut... I'm not annoyed by the ads' sound. I'm complaining about that I have to turn the sound manually and the sound re-enables itself after it begins again. I can't listen to music calmly! Do you know the ads where the sound gets enabled when the mouse is above the flash? They have the right idea.

I agree. I end up navigating away from the page as quickly as possible whether I'm reading/viewing something or not... only to find out that it's on other pages too -_-  I have seen BO2 ads with no audio at all (my profile page for instance), so it's obviously not all ads on the site.

I generally don't mind ads at all, but like AlekZanDer said above, I would love to listen to my music calmly :P

Can we get rid of those damn "Click here to interact" ads, you turn the sound off but then it turns the sound back on and keeps playing adverts over and over and over... SO FUCKING ANNOYING. Can't watch any videos on this site without the stupid ad wrecking it.

Aug 19 2012, 8:31pm Anchor

Im getting the same ads as formerly on every page I visit, its just driving me away from the site. Sound starts straight away, an if you mute it, the video restarts in seconds with annoying audio in-toe. Again, and again...

I hate when good games have horrible advertising practices. Dishonored was doing something similar to this on the Escapist.

I AM VERY FUCKING PISS OFF RIGHT NOW.
Every single link I click (be it an image, or simply just to click to another section) I would be BOMBARDED with this ad. EVERY FUCKING SINGLE ONE!
I am getting tired of clicking SKIP AD for every link I click. PLEASE FIX IT!

Oh and I WILL NOT FUCKING BUY THAT SHITTY GAME NO MATTER WHAT. I WILL EVEN TELL MY FRIENDS TO NOT BUY IT.
TAKE THAT INTRUSIVE ADVERTISING.

I have this exact same style of add blocking the whole screen but mine is  for ACER instead of transformers

Just a follow up to my original post concerning the ad above: it's no longer "sometimes", it's every single time I access an image or a mod page after a couple of minutes or so, and it happens twice in a row, sometimes 3 and 4 times in a row.
This single ad is becoming extremely annoying.

Hi. (LONGASS POST TIME) I'm new to the forums but I've spent a long time lurking around checking out mod development as you do. However recently the adverts have gone being nice and unobtrusive to being in your face and generally obnoxious. 
For example. I visited to check on a mod and I had seen that they'd released a development video so played it and got 3 seconds into it before Cillit Bang barged in at 100dB telling me about how the silly teacher is wearing grey. So i muted her and got back to my dev vid. but around 30 seconds in she started up again. She was on a loop and was intent on selling me this washing powder as loud as she could. So I ragequitted unfortunately.
 
But today is what prompted me to turn into a little keyboard warrior on the forum. I was trying to get to the search bar to search for a mod when SLEEPING DOGS! LOOK AT SLEEPING DOGS AND MARVEL AT HOW MUCH BETTER IT IS THAN ANYTHING EVER on top of the goddamn search bar. And it wouldn't go away. it had moved in and put up it's feet right in front of my favourite search bar.  So after much effing and jeffing I took to the forum.

I understand that adverts = revenue which is important (especially nowadays) which is why i don't use adblock software, I'm a massive Youtube stalker and it seems wrong to deny the revenue to people for the sake of a few adverts. But it gets to the point where the adverts interfere with the website functionality like in my case with the loudmouth cleaning product and the covering up of the search bar. So I'm not saying "get rid of ads" or "i hate ads" I'm just saying that they've become a tad too big for their boots now.

Don't get me wrong, I love this site. I really do it's just this one little niggle now that has put a bit of a downer of things. Hope I'm not coming across as a bit of a dick. :) 
 I also apologise if any of this has been said before but I felt like I had to get this off my chest, I'm strange like that...

EDIT yeah a picture might help foo'
 
I don't have an image for the Sleeping Dogs but it did happen. it knows im onto it now :P

Hello,

Just one thing to report. Lately there's been adds provided by Springboard on this site that have the sound, by default, turned on. Its loud and obnoxious. Even if I wanted lysol (BTW wrong audience) I still wouldn't buy it because of the intrusiveness of the advertisements. If possible ask them to change the default setting, or don't renew the advert contract. Back out of it if it comes to it. Its heinous and completely beneath you guys. You always run a tight site, so don't worry, I wouldn't blame you!
