Ads autoplaying sound

Recommended Posts

Why not have a paid option that removes all the ad network stuff?  Not only remove the visible ads, but whatever scripts that run as well, so performance isn't hurt.

Then members have the option to use for free with some ads (but hopefully not too many or we won't have much a community left), or pay a bit to have it ad free.

I have no issues with JN on my iphone or computers

I would say about 70-80% of the time, JN works just fine on my iPhone.

We removed the video player from the forums. Can you all let me know if:

1. You hear sound on any ads (that should be fixed)

2. You have any redirects or other issues

I thank everyone for your patience. This network is good, we will get this sorted out.

Thanks!

There definitely seems to be something seriously wrong. 

Just sitting on the forum page, there is this  continuous stream of requests, even when idle.  Below is a dump of some of the stuff that chrome caputred.

That's pretty common, you know how it notifies you when someone comments on a thread you are in or quotes you.. FB would have the same if not more activity

I spoke to some local experts here at my workplace, and it seems like the main problem is ad rotation (ads being replaced with other ads, after they've been shown for a bit).  A lot of the network activity is "pixels", which are 1x1 gifs which exist solely to trigger later loads of other ads.  (As a side note, he also wondered why you had the set of ads all the way at the bottom of the page - those are probably almost never seen / clicked.)

Another comment he made - smaller ad networks are often doing dodgy things to trick advertisers and/or publishers.  So if you think this new network is too good to be true - maybe it is... :-)  Of course, my company runs a big ad network, so maybe he's biased / take it with a grain of salt.

Feel free to email me if you want some more info.

This isn't a small ad network. This is a major one.

We have had a ton of problems with the smaller networks, they are slow to respond to malicious ads. The ads at the bottom are what they wanted, they are going to tinker with the layout. But they can definitely tell how many times an ad is seen. And they adjust the cpm based on the layout.

I have had the redirect and the sound, but my biggest complaint is how slow the forum seems. Locks up my phone regularly

I think the video player was the main problem there. That is gone but we are also adjusting some other things and have a major performance upgrade happening in the next week.

The user experience has to be good though, and we will make sure that all of this gets fixed. Thanks.

I browse here multiple times every day using a Mac, a PC with windows 8.1 and an S7 edge.  The site has almost become unusable.  The delays while typing this post are ridiculous.  If it were not for the great content of your user base, I would not put up with this.  Sad, really.  I hope you get it working well soon.

Just JN.  I am getting 116Mbps download with a 10 ms ping.  I am hardwired right into the router/modem.  As I type this i am waiting 2-3 seconds for the words to appear.  very frustrating.    The site is CONSTANTLY reloading.  I am using Chrome Version 57.0.2987.133 (64-bit)

I just restarted Chrome on my Mac and it seems to be better.  I am not getting the constant reload.  Did you change something?

 

Edit:  Oh, no ads.  Works great.  Not great for your bank account, though.

Yes, actually, it's great for me now too.  Though I'm not seeing ads...

Yes I took them all down temporarily. Just wanted to make sure there wasn't another problem. So I am glad to hear the performance improved with the ads gone.

I will work with the network and make sure the autoplay redirect issue has been fixed. Once that is done we can work int he normal 728 x 90 in the header \ footer, 300 x 250 in the sidebar.  I think that will work and should be a nice balance. Having a higher CPM doesn't do us any good nobody can view each page. :)

Thanks for all the feedback and patience. I promise we will get this sorted out!

Okay but, if not, I'm going to ask for my money back! :)

So far my problems all seem to be healed.  Thanks
