Please check the first post in this thread for info on what kind of ads to report; I can't really remove every single ad that is (or seems) off. Only the ones that fit the description in the first post.

Slightly off topic: I've set my account to block all ads but everytime I come back to the site they are all there, including the pop ups. It's starting to do my head in!

Silvery, did you select your ad display level and log in here: http://www.sorcerers.net/index.php#sps_login (on the right side?)

If you're logged in, you should see the number of days left in your account displayed in the same spot.

Odd... which browser are you using? This is all done via cookies so it basically can't be much else but a cookie issue with your browser in one way or another (some interfering Firefox plugin could be problematic too I guess). If it happens again, please take a screenshot or two (of the login box and any of the ads that you see) as that might help me in figuring out what the problem is.

Umm...next dumb Silvery comment:

Logged on this morning, got a pop-up (the smiley central thing I think). Anyway, immediatly that it popped up, my security centre went mental and said that it's found a trojan trying to get in.

That's not good, right?

Not if it's an actual threat, no... though it's likely a false positive. Could you take a screenshot of it so I could check it out?

Well, there's about a dozen different ways, but the easiest is probably pressing the Print Screen button (which stores the image of the screen[s] on the clipboard) and then running a graphics program like Paint, pasting the image there (ctrl+v) and then saving it (File -> Save As). Then you can either upload it somewhere or just send it to me via e-mail.

The ad isn't malicious or anything, but it surely amuses LKD in a "look at the train wreck, honey!" sort of way -- I speak of the "how to survive cheating" ad, where they have a picture of a middle aged woman who looks about as miserable as a human can possibly look. I can't tell you how depressing it is to look at her scrunched up face, pursed lips, and watery eyes every time I scroll to the bottom of the AODA. To me, if they caught some poor woman feeling like that for real, they shouldn't have posted it for reasons of taste. If she's a model (a far more likely scenario) she's REALLY good at looking like someone just tore her heart out (so to speak).

I've grown fond of the ad for Quibids. That is the one where they are trying to convince you that you can get an iPad cheap. I think the girl is very pretty. However, I don't recommend anyone going to Quibids as from what I have seen it looks like a total scam/fraud.

There's this annoying one that kind of resets every half an hour or so. Not sure exactly how long, i'll try timing it. What's annoying about it is that it pops a new window on a click -anywhere on the screen-.

I'm usually browsing around, writing a post or whatnot, then suddenly it decides to revive and seemingly turns my whole screen to a click_for_popup add. I can't be sure it's an entire screen since i can't see it or predict it, but i haven't noticed the mouse going click_for_link mode either.
I've actually never waited to see what it'll open o.O

That doesn't help me much unfortunately.

Here's the holy trinity of good reports about problematic ads:

1. Take a screenshot of it.
2. See where the ad points to (target url; you'll usually need to click on the ad to see where it leads to), and copy the url.
3. Describe what the ad is doing that is problematic.

Then send me an e-mail with all of the above (screenshot, target url of the ad, description of why it's a problem) to sorcerer -AT- sorcerers.net and I'll look into it.

I've never encountered what you reported myself.

Gah! That Turkey Island ad from myfuncards.com better be gone soon. That has got to be the most annoying auto-playing sound track I've heard. At least the mute button in the ad works...

BTA, which banner spot is it? Btw, you can log into your SPS account and disable ads until I get it sorted.

Topken, the ads displayed on the site are our primary source of income - the more people that block the ads, the harder it is for us to pay the server bills and related site costs every month. So if you enjoy the site, please put sorcerers.net on the list of allowed domains to show you ads. Alternatively, you can get an SPS account which also comes with the option to disable ads across the site.

I haven't seen it lately, so I think it's gone from the rotation. It was a myfuncards.com spot for Thanksgiving. On the left was a picture that said Turkey Island and it auto-played these jungle drums and some kind of sound effect I assume was supposed to be turkey gibberish. Very annoying, and one day it was coming up over and over again. But like I said there was a mute button in the ad that worked

BTA, I mean which ad spot on the site/forums was it; there are different ads showing in different locations (e.g. top leaderboard banner or the left or right square spot above the quick reply).
