A Mars a day...
Join to comment
There appears to be a Mars advert on my homepage that covers my ‘most popular’ mocs. Not complaining (I actually quite like Mars bars) just reporting the problem. :D

... The problem seems to be intermittent. I also noticed it earlier today on the main homepage, it was covering the top part of the activity list.

Same for me.

Also, off-topic, for those that say all the ads are based on your google searches - whilst I know *some* will be, as I don't search for much I get ads for losing weight (I don't need to), Bentley V8s (which I can't afford), Glasses (which I don't need) etc. - just saying' - before the replies come in that it's all based upon what you search for. It isn't.

But I also understand MOCpages has very little control over what ads are shown, and they do pay the bills.

90% of my adds are for losing weight, and I'm FIT as a fiddle!

I would give you my last name so you could see on Facebook, but I am not that desperate to prove my point.

Sadly the subject of "ads" is moot. Beyond shaking their fists at the problem, MOCpages can't do much about it.

It's frustrating, and please don't stop reporting stuff that clearly is suspect - but just be aware, not much can be done.

Despite their annoyance ads can be taken away sadly...

On the subject of annoying ads and yes I know, as mentioned before, I know nothing can really be done about it, but I'm just reporting that there are some annoying ads around at the moment with sound that automatically play. So when I have my music playing from the computer as I always do, I then get an advert for Heartburn relief over the top of it!
Just to let you know.

For those of you using Iexplore I believe there is a temporary solution to the annoying sounds problem.

Under Tools, select Internet Options and uncheck the box marked "play sounds". This should turn off any music being generated through iexplore.

I've checked and firefox doesn't have this option.

Or you can do what I do: just use adblock+ when an ad becomes obtrusive.

on another note....
Really andros? you use IE? had you figured for a tech-savvy kind of guy :P
