MAKE IT STOP
This damn IE 9 add is driving me crazy I really could care less on how to pin sites to IE 9 as i dont even use IE. The whole animation this is very distracting and takes up at least 2 inches on the bottom of the screen and also slows the page load times. PLEASE make them go away as i said in an earlier post the side adds and top adds are fine but make the animated/ take over the whole page adds go away.
LoL... Just because my current avatar says Jan 2011, doesnt mean I first started on Bit-Tech then... It's also not my first identity on the forum (nothing to do with the forum as to why, it was because of outside influences)... Im not quite as green behind the ears as you think!
Well sorry, but I wasn't to know that. The original thread was 2007... even I hardly remember when skimlinks were brought up for the first time. I only remembered about it because they made a brief appearance again last year.
I get the feeling that's not going to happen this time
If only AdOps had set a frequency cap they might have avoided all this anger...
Hey I'm having a problem where I can't click on anything during the first few seconds of each page load due to the new adverts, and I can't middle click on any links without first left clicking on the page or closing the advert.
Windows 7 pro 64-bit (6.1, Build 7601)
It made me install adblocker.
I can live with the mildly obtrusive attitude of ads, but destroying my browsing experience, I can't live with.
Wow, don't see you posting often Geoff! Thanks for joining the discussion. You're absolutely right about the frequency cap. Even if the IE9 one was only on every other page, I wouldn't have minded as much, I'd just have closed it each time, but having to close it on every single page of the site and forums was what made me AdBlock bit-tech.
I hope Simon passes our opinions on to the advertising department and we can put a stop to this aggressive, intrusive advertising. I think what Shirty said earlier was very relevant. I think it's time for a redesign with more ad space if we do actually need to have this many ads on the site for revenue.
same here - and really annoying - bad enough that the poorly targetted ad is there but to have to actively go and click to get rid of it just to use the site is crazy.
Besides, on this forum of all places I think everyone is aware of IE9 and likely to have figured out how to use it if they want to. That ad is unlikely to change any behaviour or provide any return on investment...
QFT. I'll whitelist bit-tech after the IE9 advert has gone, but until then the ad-block will stay.
If it upsets you that much then USE ADBLOCK.
we should not have to use adblock
please stop pop up ads (blocking all ads on site until they are removed)
Why the stupid popup bit-tech one who knows (not even sure what that ad wants me to do) bottom one is not as bad unless your on an netbook as that take up 25% of the screen
or just add *adtech.de* and *intellitxt* (as it seems bit tech is Still using it) to your ad blocker
not even sure how its been launched as i cant see it in the web source
- ok i now worked out what it was about its related to the stupid IE9 feature -
While i have no problem viewing websites with advertisements, it annoys me when they interrupt the user experience to the point of not allowing the user to navigate to other pages.
Seems the advertising for bit-tech is steadily getting worse.
At work they have addons blocked from the browser, Just now i had one/stirke that 2 slip through image block (thought it was AB I think it's fixed now) I may have to re enable NO Script but it kinda kills a lot of stuff i do want to see on the site.
And thank you Longweight I have it installed now. +1 to you. But that still does not fix my problem at work
The ie9 add is coming up all the time! it stops me doing still till its mostly done. is other people getting this too? its driving me mad!
It's been mentioned several times in the past two pages.
it has to go, its a pain in the ass,
why do bit tech find the most annoying adds?
i am getting this ie9 ad even though i am using ie9 and sometimes it comes on every page, got this vodaphone one before, one time i was typing and this fullscreen one the worstare those when you press x and it goes to the ad anyway
