Update: We are in touch with the ad network. and we were told they are stopping the auto playing videos. Please report whether the auto playing videos have stopped for you. Please focus only on the auto playing part, i.e. video that begins to play when you bring up the page and you do not click on the video. This has stopped for me. Please comment: Stopped yes or no. And please say where you are, some ads are localized. Thank you.
Please let’s discuss other things, like in picture ads etc. later. Let’s solve this issue now.
We receive A LOT of complaints about the video ads that suddenly pop up. As someone who made a small fortune in advertising so that he can afford to work for TTAC in his old age, I am the last one to be against ads. But we have to draw the line somewhere.
We are in touch with our very capable technical crew, and they are working very hard on squelching the annoying ads. We changed servers the other day (did you notice that the dreaded “error in establishing database connection” thing does not pop up anymore? Let’s keep our fingers crossed) and it looks like during the server change, excrement happened.
I have been assured that this “should be rectified today or Monday at the latest.”
Bear with us – and please turn the audio off if you read TTAC at work!
