The ad window that recently was added is annoying how it comes and goes.  I fully understand the need for advertising to pay for this site and fully support having advertisements to keep it free.

However, the way this one works is annoying.

 

 

PS....when I went to post this post, the window almost covers up the "post new topic" button.

I'd be willing to make a contribution to get it off my screen.  Would be one thing if it was news or pertinent ads, but it's National Enquirer sort of stuff.

I saw a big animal penis on mine.

 

It's the most annoying ad I've ever seen on a website. Can't we have them down the side of the screen or something?

To clarify - that wasn't an opinion, it was the ad I was seeing (but I agree with you)

 

However, now its telling me "Beyonce's feet are the ugliest thing you'll see all day."

 

Makes me wonder what I googled that they're pushing lady feet at me.  Or, do they assume that all you fellas here on HB are into feet?

I'm sorry about the ads, guys. Will pass the feedback. I know we're always looking for ways to offset server costs here at HB, but serving up the worst of the internet ... I mean, I think it'll at least be a trial run and see how the numbers are. It's a little depressing to me that this has kind of become the direction of internet advertising. It's everywhere. Did you guys know that two MIT Boston grads are shaking up the automobile industry?

I'm pretty sure these are targeted ads based on cookies on your browser. So people seeing ads about automobiles probably have looked at something car-related recently, if you're seeing celebrity photos you may have been browsing People or TMZ, and people seeing animal penises.... well... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

It's just like the story of the grasshopper and the octopus. All year long, the grasshopper kept burying acorns for winter, while the octopus mooched off his girlfriend and watched TV. But then winter came and the grasshopper died. And the octopus ate all his acorns. Also he got a race car. Is any of this getting through to you?

I turned my AdBlocker off to see what kind of person my cookies say I am.  It turns out I'm pretty weird.  

 

My ads:

  • "Should you hire a personal injury lawyer?" (probly from the youtube search of bicycle crashes I did yesterday to mock Knapp.) 
  • "Land your dream job?  (Hey now, I only appear to be unemployed because I spend so much time goofing around on the internet.)
  • "17 unbelievable facts about WWII"  (I googled "MOAB" to find out WTF GM_Tood was talking about in his status update.)
  • "This hair growth saves my hair.  My boyfriend is so happy!"  (I must have done a search on bald women at some point?)
  • "Can't look away from these photos of celebs without eyebrows."  (Bald women without eyebrows!  LULZ)

 

So my cookies indicate that I'm an unemployed bald woman with no eyebrows who may possibly be injured and has an active interest in 20th century history.  Dead on!   :lol:

Ok important people, we can't keep this ad here. It's awful. Put ads on the side. No popup ads anywhere.

Or here's another idea:

89.7 The River does a fundraiser every year where they talk and talk and talk and sometimes play bad music until they reach their goal. Can we turn this awful ad into that? "This ad will be here until we raise X amount of $. If you want it to go away faster send $ here using Paypal."

This ad issue is getting out of hand.  It's bad for a site to have an ad function in a way that takes away from the functions of the site.

 

The ad is completely in the way and annoying when using the mobile version of the site.  

 

Just this morning I was searching for a thread and the ad at the bottom of the screen was covering the buttons to move from page to page.

 

Please....figure out something else for paid advertising on the site.

I think we should start a collection based on words/phrases/comments used in posts and have a penalty assigned to them.  We could then use the funds to pay for the removal of ads.  My first suggestions:

 

  • Bo Pelini - 10pts
  • MSM - 3pts
  • 500 mile radius - 1pt
  • "Pass more" - 2 pts
  • "Run more" - 2pts

It's starting to piss me off that we haven't gotten a response yet.

Maybe the goal is to bring costs of the site down by driving people away.

I would donate if I knew it would make the ads go away - OR AT LEAST CHANGED FROM THE MOST ANNOYING TYPE OF AD I'VE EVER SEEN - but there has been no answer.

If you're keeping it up for a month to see how much $ it generates at least give us a possible end date to look forward to and/or respond to the ideas we've posted. This ad would be a good way to start a fundraising campaign. You could do it twice a year and say "the ad will stay up until we raise $300 from donations" or whatever amount. Then take it down.

Our bad. I thought Blackshirt had posted in here already, but I see it was only in the Mod forum. I'll summarize:

- The ads are pay-per-impression. The longer they're on, the more it helps the site.
- "X"-ing out the ads disables it for 24 hours.
- Will make a decision on its worth after a couple months of tracking.
- A "pay-to-remove-ads" system has some appeal. We'll have to look into this. If anyone is aware of an existing, easy IPB implementation please forward the information to me. A minimum of what I think we'd need is an automatic pay-to-change-group-membership plugin. We could also try implementing it manually, but it wouldn't be immediate.

My thoughts again: I wish it weren't so annoying, but we don't have control over how it's implemented. At best we could maybe redesign the site around it, but honestly I don't think there's an easy way to "mesh" with this garish slide-over.

In an ideal world, this and every other site on the internet is free with zero ads. Or we're capable of regularly drumming up member donations. We're not there, unfortunately. The site has operated at loss for some time. It's not fair to ask the members to come up with the effort or ideas to fix this, and I'm sorry this has been unleashed on you. Please do find your favorite ad block extension to do away with them (Ghostery is an excellent extension in general and it nukes them. I had to disable it just to see it work. Incidentally, the Brave web browser blocks them natively.)

I'm not understanding why you have to go with this ad company if this is the only option they have. There are plenty of other sites that have ads that don't pop up and show me giant penises.

Sorry but the X doesn't work. I've tried it and popped up again on the next page and the one after that. It seems entirely random.

I don't know why it's this ad company. Presumably, we're looking at how this one does versus other ad options that haven't panned out very well in the past.

If the X doesn't work, use an ad blocker.

It sucks, and I'm sorry.

The options for us look to me like this:
- Get these guys to serve something less annoying.
- Pay-to-remove ads.
- Some other alternative.

I hope we can find one of these and make it palatable. We're tossing a few ideas around, but ofc no promises. I can't claim to have the technical ability to pull off anything else, but perhaps some other folks on the team do. In any case, it seems like it'd be worth a try.

These adds are basically NSFW. I agree with Moiraine. You're going to start driving people away before they even get here, if you haven't already.

One thing I'm not going to do is donate $ before I have assurances I'll stop seeing tit and penis ads on the site every time I visit.

Tell us how much you need per year and make it fun. Use the ad as a threat.

Agree with Moiraine.... I made a joke in my stauts about it before realizing there was already a thread several weeks old. What are the figures needed to have ads removed? I'd be willing to pay to stop the ads, I also understand their purpose.

I guess I still don't understand what all the buzz is about.  Don't people have ad blockers on their browsers?  If you want to see the ads, you can.  If they bother you, just flip on ad blocker and they don't appear.  Simple as that.  :dunno:

It's just like the story of the grasshopper and the octopus. All year long, the grasshopper kept burying acorns for winter, while the octopus mooched off his girlfriend and watched TV. But then winter came and the grasshopper died. And the octopus ate all his acorns. Also he got a race car. Is any of this getting through to you?

Unless you are on a work computer and can't install any ad blockers.

 

And are there any ad blockers for moblie?

On mobile, ad block apps tend to require root. Ghostery, which makes the browser extensions for desktop, also has their own mobile browser app which probably works. The Brave browser also gets rid of it on mobile.

I'm also aware that these are all onerous workarounds.

Will defer to Blackshirt on the figures, policy, etc.
