AUDIO with Advertisements: Can it be stopped?

In the last day or two I have started hearing audio with some of the banner ads at the top of the screen. It's very irritating. Does anyone know if there is a way to turn this off? (other than turning the volume down on the whole computer?)

Thanks.

I think they should get rid of the banner ads altogether, it slows down my comp and its very irritating

to get rid of all the banner ads alltogether... so what's your suggestion how to run this site and how to finance it?

Re: AUDIO with Advertisements: Can it be stopped?

maybe the banner placement works target group orientated depending on your location or other preferences.

I have switched on the sound of my computer during the last hours in the forums and the only two banners I can get all the time are the "PartyPoker.com" and the "Casino & Sportsbook Oasis" banner but never the ones that you mentioned.


A few times on other sites I have had such banners with sounds too and then by right clicking on them a menu of the script appeared and you could select "turn off sounds". Ever tried that?

Re: AUDIO with Advertisements: Can it be stopped?

Oh yeah. The audio ads!

But, I just mute the my volume, and I'm set.

Although that did mean the first time I watched Disco Squirrels, I didn't know there was a song that went with it!!!!

Re: AUDIO with Advertisements: Can it be stopped?

OMG These ads are so annoying... I would be listening to music while surfing the MTF pages and then i hear the ads behind the song i am listening to... It is so annoying... It doesnt slow my PC down or anything but the sound is just too annoying... In some of them u can put ur cursor where the little video screen is and it shows a stop option for the annoying video... Hope that helps. But there r some that u just cant seem to do anything about...

Re: AUDIO with Advertisements: Can it be stopped?

If I were new to the site and had no connection to it yet, the audio ads could conceivably keep me from visiting. They are that irritating, imo.

Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I have requested those ads with audio are removed from our inventory ASAP. In future, please use the email us feedback form when reporting issues of this nature.
