What's with the overpowering HP ads? Makes me want to change my homepage. Fed up with them!
I was browsing your latest acorn article comments and I moved the mouse off the page onto the tab bar at the top of my browser so that the portion of text I was reading wasn't obstructed, (Chrome Windows 7) and a moving advert for BT popped up in front of me, is this intentional? IMO it's very annoying especially while I was still reading the comments. Screenshot attached.
To be honest I don't see where that ad could come from within TS unless you hovered or clicked on a standard ad in the first place.
So this popped up earlier and hindered my browsing D: Not sure if techspot or NSA's attempt at covering up their shenanigans...
It's a slip on our agency's part. Hopefully will be gone by tomorrow.
So I don't think that happened
Seeing my past issues from the stand point of others, makes me a proud user of Adblock Plus. If only I had control over the criteria of which ads to show, I might allow the ads that were confined to a specific space. But since I don't, I will choose to hide them all.
Usually I choose to do the same, I just disable it for a select few that of which I think deserve it.
While I understand the annoyance, we already choose not to show any intrusive ads to logged in users -- but if we chose not to show any ads whatsoever, then of course, we'd be out of business.
Thanks for reporting the overlays are not yet gone, they should, but again we must go through our agency to take them down.
Update: Got reconfirmation from the agency, those overlay ads are fully gone.
How about to install AdsBlock Plus plugin to avoid these pop-ups ads? It helps me...
You are quite correct, but as you see on the screenshot above, I do indeed have it installed. Just disabled for techspot because, well yolo.
It's so nice to see something that annoys the forum members more than me! Keep those popups coming @Julio Franco !
@Julio Franco Halp, it seems it is back...I was browsing on meh chromebook at school and I was bombarded, I didn't get a screenie but it was this same ad.
Thanks for the note, taking care of this (again) soon
The Ad agency knows TechSpot will continue to pay no matter what, I doubt they are doing everything they can to prevent this.
Just got an email confirming they've removed the campaign.
Well there is the option to go with another ad agency, so they have that to fear.
Small mishap, our agency rocks to be honest
This one popped up earlier, when I didn't click on anything
Should be taken care of today. Thanks.
