Benzo-Matic Fatboy Ad

    Ok,

    So I normally don't make a big to-do about the ads on OGF, but this ad caught me off guard a bit.

    I am logged in as KSUFLASH, when I open the Lounge forum, I get this dumb chick talking through my speakers. She is promoting this Torch or whatever she is selling.

    Then I find out it is a banner ad on OGF.

    Ok so this is a bit annyoning. A banner ad here and there is fine, but when the ad begins doing the whole audio thing....GOD that is so freakin annoying.

    Anyone else notice this ad? Or is it just me?

    cheers,

    When your mouse moves over or touches the ad, then the audio starts.

    Some else posted about that banner ad with a print screen showing what it was.
    I haven't seen it yet and when I do I will just exit the website.

    VERY UNCOOL

    I'm using Safari on my mac and the ad is actually pushing the entire forum list to the right and cutting it off..

    Thanks for the link Net. I didn't know it has already been reported.

    The least the Torch ad could have done, is if they were going to interrupt me with an audio ad, is have the chick be hot in the ad.

  8. I just read this and I have not seen it myself. I am running Firefox on my system. I will pass this info on to the techies that work behind the scenes. Hopefully we will let you know something soon.

    Relax guys...
    This has been forwarded to the tech guys....If there is a way to remove the ad, believe me they will nuke it!.
     
  11. Had it happen to me also,found out that if your cursor just goes over it then it will do that !!!:( You don't even have to click on it ?

    Just like the double underlined words in your posts. Da^# banners always popping up getting in your way.If you get any double underlined words in your posts you can hit edit, put in gobbley gook, hit save. Then edit again, put in your original word, hit save and then that the double underline will be gone and your post free of banner ads.

    Lewis, Can you have them check why I can't add pictures to my gallery again? This problem has been going on for months. I sent another PM.

    Thanks

    I know Sporty is working on the photopost issue.
    We might have to do an upgrade on the photopost software.
    These problems are definately intermittent,that is why he is having such a hard time getting a handle on it.
    I will let him know right away that you are still having problems.

    That happened to me (Firefox) yesterday but the ad superimposed itself OVER the index. I close and reloaded to get rid of it.

    You can all officially unwad your panties :D

    The ad is being removed, and we apologize for the eyesore. I was out of town with no way to address it until now.
