    I keep getting a talking ad for Finish dishwasher.

    1. I didn't get to take a picture. The video ended. I pressed play again and I got a weird acid-trip video, a sequence of non-related images.
    2. Doesn't link to anything.
    3. Mofo starts talking when I open pages. It's particularly annoying when I open 20 pages or so and I have no idea which one it is in.

    I'm getting dishwasher ads too, but they are from American TV.

    Is this a hint? Wash your dishes more often? Codex teaching us valuable sanitary practices?

    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), and copy the url.
    3. Describe what the ad is doing that is problematic.

    Then send me a PM with all of the above (screenshot, target url of the ad, description of why it's a problem), and I'll look into it. Opening separate threads about it or posting pictures here is only wasting your time, because without the information requested above I can't do anything to remove such ads etc.

    From your descriptions, I don't even know which ad spot is causing the problems.

    Much better, thanks. Hopefully we can get rid of all the audio ones at once.

    It's been telling me to date a soldier. Should I date a soldier?

    Taluntain, the ad didn't link to anything. But it was for this stuff:

    Yea, seems to be mostly detergents and such. I'm still waiting for the advertising provider's response as I don't have access to fix this myself directly.

    Plays a montage of Flash commercials, all at once, within a frame within an ad banner, making it impossible to destroy it.


    And it haunts my dreams.

    And a video ad for some form of celebrity, following a Lysol commeric . . . Why not just ban Flash?

    I still can't do anything without a screenshot. Again, I don't even know which ad spot you're talking about from your description. We've gone over this just a few posts up.

    FYI, pretty much all ads except Google's have been Flash for the last several years.

    Apologizes, Taluntain. I'll upload a screenshot of the ad, and a screenshot of it open, in "this frame -> open frame in new tab." momentarily.

    In RPG Codex:

    [​IMG]

    Frame opened:

    [​IMG]



    As far as the other ad is concerned, when I see it I'll see if I can't get some more information. For whet ever reason, it didn't show up as a part of the page in Firefox's View Page Info -> Media.[/img]

    Haven't seen a single ad on the Codex in years. SRWare Iron, I love you.

    That's because there's a space in the second link between "aldaniti.net" and the "[/url]" tag, which messes up the BBCode.

    Here, works like a charm.

    Crap like this really pisses me off... apparently it's being slipped in under some different name so I can't find it and I've practically gone over all the ads manually. I've banned the aldaniti.net domain so hopefully this will get rid of it. Let me know...

    Hah, found the SOB... why the block didn't hold is because they're presented as .COM and not .NET in the system.

    For future reference: Client "Lotonazo", ad "LOTONAZO.DEC.RON.ES.728.1"

    Merry Christmas. :lol:
