These stupid annoying ads with apps on them cover up panels and makes it impossible to see the panel. I tried to cross it off but it just wouldn't go. STOP THEM NOW!!
Ads? Checks on Chrome
What ads would they be? Trollface
I'm on chrome, and you either know what I'm talking about or genuinely haven't seen it. I can't tell when people are sarcastic on the internet.
Well maybe some Adblock would help you?
dude. download adblock. i havent seen a single advertisement on any page ive browsed for the past couple years! especially nice for youtube.
Haha, sorry Magicman. I have Adblock Plus and don't see any advertisements, and can pretty much edit pages to my liking, for example removing various parts that have no purpose for me :)
I think this link should work:
What ads are they? Can you take a screenshot next time you see one.
And folks, please don't promote blocking ads. It's the only thing that pays for the servers.
@ Every1 who says I should get adblock.
This isn't my computer, so I can't mess with the settings.
@ Reed they pop up over a panel with a search bar on with things related to drawception. Then, when you hover over the top right it shows things that I can only describe as 'apps'. Click one and you get whatever you said it'd give you. There are A search engine( like I said ), a weather report, a calculator, stock changes and a few more. I'll try to take a screenshot when I do see one.
Hey Reed, I've always wondered, is the revenue through clicks or simply through viewing the ad?
If it's anything like I've seen, then neither views nor clicks are necessary for any money. Simply hosting the ad will earn you cash, but clicks get you more. It depends on what he's using to host them, though.
This problem was also mentioned in that other thread, and the TC found out it was because of some browser widget that turns text into search links, or something like that.
There's also a screenshot linked from that thread which shows what it looks like.
Unfortunately there's a good chance whoever IS managing the computer you're using has installed something that brings the annoying ads along for the ride. Unless you're the sysadmin for your machine, most likely you're out of luck unless you can convince them that it's also annoying, and talk them into figuring out what they installed.
A fair number of plug-ins and add-ons will do this sort of thing. I haven't seen any ads like those described, and I DON'T use AdBlock or anything like it. I do see ads, but they're generally well-behaved, though some are badly coded (leading to impossible links too long to go anywhere).
