Bit similar to that Assault advert being stuck over the top of the page.

I don't know if it's been reported yet.  But Lysol and National Park just keep playing in a loop.  When you mute them they just start over again with sound the next time.  Also, they don't even fit in the ad spot.

LYSOL!

Jesus christ its a 15 second ad and it keeps repeating even after i mute the ad., can't even watch a vid anymore.

This is the biggest annoyance ever, I dislike racing the advertisement to go onto my updates/profile. Please fix fast.

Are you guys doing ANYTHING about these intrusive ads?
Because its getting ridicules. I know ads supports this site, but right now its just ridicules unusable.
EVERY SINGLE CLICK LEADS TO AN AD !! Right now its "SCHICK HOT" ad that's doing the round here but previous month it was something else.
If you think ad revenue is going to keep this site up by jamming the site full of it and force it down people's throat is the one for you to make money, I can tell you ALL OF US users will be LEAVING. SERIOUSLY. ITS FUCKING UNUSABLE.

I took a screen capture, cropped it down, got it all ready, then decided it wasn't worth the time once I saw I was going to have to find an independent image host.  Sorry.

Hey there,
normally I'm blocking ads but I often get forwared without any reason or interaction to this site:

Ams1.ib.adnxs.com^654739&media_subtypes=1&dlo=1#9623223202876575260

and WoT says that this site has a bad reputation.

It's not directly an ad, because there is no visible ad (at least for me) but you still get forward to this site.

Cheers.

There's these annoying springboard ads that keep playing. There's 3 or 4 different variants of them (all about cleaning products, too, like anyone that browses this site has any direct interest in cleaning products...), and they all play *with* sound and without any interaction from the user (me, in this case). Basically, what I'm saying, is they auto-play with sound. It's annoying, it's distracting, especially when I'm browsing the site and keep browsing mod images and videos. I can mute the sound, but the ad lasts 20-30 seconds, after which another one plays, with sound once again enabled (sometimes it stops playing ads after 2-3 of them have played consecutively, sometimes it doesn't). It is extremely irritating and I'm *this* close to downloading adblock and using it, despite how against it I am.

Here are some screencaps of the ad, in order of animation:

I don't think ads should be allowed to interfere with site functionality.

I keep getting an ad for the new "This is the End" film in the top-left of the screen, blocking me from selecting my profile/messages/updates etc.

It's getting really annoying.

I've got to say, I understand that you guys need to bring in the income to keep this epic site up... but good Lord.  I have been using this site for as long as I can remember, referring everybody I know to check out its awesomeness.  But these new ads are really killing it, it's really some times so annoying that I choose not to visit Moddb at all and have found alternative sites without such intrusive ads.  Please, guys, don't let this site fail to this, it's really heartbreaking.  I mean honestly, if you're going to use such intrusive ads that click through even when you hit their close button while they cover your entire screen, at least make them somewhat interesting.  The only ad that I have even a passing interest in is the Castlevania ad.  Regardless, I have resorted to only using this site for mods that are not hosted anywhere else until this is fixed.

Aside from all my whining, thank you for so many years of truly awesome service and for really making the mod community so well known and easily accessible.

edit - Sorry I only read the first post and actually only came here to post about this as I've never used the forums.  There is a jeep ad, a pickup truck ad, and even (though it pains me to say it due to my undying loyalty to the franchise) the Castlevania ad.  I'll make notes of specific ads that do it.  They cover nearly the entire screen, and not just once but a couple times in a row.  It's more than intrusive, it makes the site dang near unusable unless  you like clicking a lot.

Please post screenshots of the offending adverts!
Why? As an example people in the UK dont get the same ads as people in the US or Australia, so if you don't show us the offending advert, we cant look into fixing the issue.

IF YOU DONT POST A SCREENSHOT WE CAN NOT HELP YOU
