It isn't a fault, I guess, but I am getting a couple of casino and YOU'RE A WINNER style ads at the top of my page. Currently there is a Sloth telling me to buy an Alpha Romeo.

New style ads, or is it just because I am in France?

Could you please let me know precisely which companies they are advertising? Once I know then I'll get them removed from the rotation. Thanks!

Not sure what company, but today it looked like this

EDIT- there was also 888.com Pacific poker (in French) and one which tells me to click to see what happens next after a man is almost hit by a bus.

Thanks, I've forwarded those details. smile.gif

They're usually quite quick on the ball, so probably within the next 24-48 hours those ads will be reviewed.

But the Unicef one isn't flashing I assume?

The ads help to pay for the site, so the are necessary, but we try our best to keep them as un-annoying as possible!

Please do report any bad adverts, and I'll see what we can do about them.

That should be gone now, but here's a tip for the future from the chap who runs the ads for me:

If the user still sees it, please can you let me know - preferably send a screengrab again with the mouse hovered over the banner so we can see the code in the browser bar - and we will get on it!

I don't usually mind ads unless they make noise; the worst one I've ever seen was a "shoot the photgrapher" thing, and it had a loud shutter-click noise every two seconds. Your policy of keeping the ads unobtrusive is great.

There's nothing that can make me leave a page faster than an ad that unexpectedly starts making noises at me.

I've been trying to refresh the page to get that one with the guy dodging the bus. I do want to see what happens next. But I never realize its up until I'm clicking on a new link. Damn my stupidity. Good advertizing though.
[edit] grrr roar and ect. It would seem that I can't watch it anyway because of all my web protection that I have yet to figure out how it works. Blast you new pretty laptop. [/edit]

Well it is very enticing. How could a man trying to drop to the ground underneath a bus not be interesting? It really doesn't help that they cut it off right before the bus reaches him. You have to click the the advert to see what happens.
Seriously my security features can get a little annoying. There are times that can't even view flyers online that i want to see.
Has anyone seen it? What happens to the man. I bet it's a hoax and he layed down in the lane next to the bus.

I looked to see if I could find out more about it and stopped when it wanted me to install things to go any further. I think 'adware' is probably more accurate than 'spyware', but it's still junk that your machine doesn't need.

One of the telewest ads is very flashy strobe - its one of the Skyscraper side ads and looks like a flashing snow storm.

Its annoying enough with the 'you are stupid for not having cable' message but no cable in my town and I doubt there ever will be without it strobing too

That one does settle down, so I think it's justifiable.

I noticed the tag line is carefully written: 'If you can get it, you should'.

I know; if I see a noisy ad on my first visit to a website, I never come back. Unfortunately, I've started getting loud ads in my Photobucket account but really don't want to relocate my pictures.

Yes, that is the link to the site, but you have to download and install their software to watch it. I'd place bets that it'll start putting adverts on my machine.

The following is included in the Zango installation:

Zango Search Assistant (Zango SA) provides free access to Daniel and the Bus and all Zango-supported content across the Internet and, in exchange, may display to you several ads per day based upon keywords from your Internet browsing. These ads will pop up on your computer screen in a separate browser window.

Zango Toolbar, accessible whenever you browse the Internet, may display ads within the Toolbar itself based upon keywords from your Internet browsing. Buttons in the Toolbar let you access relevant offers. See the Zango Toolbar.

Both Zango SA and the Zango Toolbar are always running and periodically upgrade automatically

I love the way that they make the pop-ups sound like such an easy, convinent thing.
