    I don't buy shit from ads.
    In fact, i make it a point to avoid items when ads become aggravating. I piss off easily.

    The ads have been a nuisance to say the least. If I could punch them or someone who put them there I would.

    I wish I could browse this site without having to mute my laptop.

    I use a shitty computer at work. Freezes all the time when browsing other websites. I have yet to experience these sounds from Shoryuken.com

    If these ads didn't blow my ears off everytime I opened this site, maybe I'd consider buying that new football game that likes to un mute itself

    I've been using adblock plus for so long that I never knew this site had ads.

    I don't use Adblock so I can support the sites that I visit - however SRK is making me reconsider.

    Same for me. I've been using it so long that I forgot what the Internet looks like without it. Fired up IE at work the other day and was blown away at all the ads that you miss running the blocker.

    Also, the ads on SRK can die in a fire. Video ads that begin with volume turned on are the devil's work.

    SRK - what are you thinking?

    Just when I thought the ads on this site couldn't be any worse, we get friggin' pushdown ads on EVERY PAGE! Not to mention they conceal the lastest news/post section and alerts.

    Do you guys even care anymore? Seriously, you're begging people to adblock you at this point. This is what we get for trying to support the site by not using it?

    finally went with ad block. putting up with 1 video that unmutes and plays itself on each refresh is 1 thing, but 2, with 1 of them actually blocking forum content is just too obnoxious

    Can you show a picture of it actually blocking SRK content? Along with the browser used? We don't want it blocking the functionality of the site.

    Happens in Firefox, Chrome, IE9, Opera. Doesn't happen on every page. It's by design ... by default it's blocking content, and covering up other ads. There's a "collapse" link but it's non-obvious (no icon, etc...) and collapsing it once doesn't keep it collapsed the next time the ad is served.

    why do we have two of them play at once
    why does macy's sometimes block my options and avatar
    why do we still need one on the very bottom

    For real though, something needs to be done about the ads that autoplay vids and have sound start no matter what. As bad as the drop downs ads are the vid ones are the worse.

    the talking ads are the worst, but I haven't seen the ones blocking the menus lately.

    What's worse is that when I want to collapse those big ads...............a bigger window pops up.
    Some...........not all.

    It's ridiculous.

    The Pacsun ad is the worse

    Can't shrink it
    Blocks off everything above the fourth newest post tracker at the top
    Instantly plays video
    Video restarts itself

    I just got this one, and it is by far the most annoying. The "Roll over to expand" part is right next to the profile/inbox/alerts. When you do expand it, the "click to close" part is right next to the "roll over to expand" part, when you close it you have to move your mouse up. I know that sounds silly, but for an ad, it's very intrusive.

    and that's the collapsed form

    I've just gone with chrome adblock as well for the past few months. While I want to support SRK, the way in which those ads totally disrupts everything else I do and sometimes makes the site incredibly fugly (like the time there were those zombie images on the side verticals wth) would make me not visit the site at all.

    We're aware of the ads overlaying on top of content and navigation. Working with Complex to fix those issues now.

    I actually came here just to report that^

    Sometimes another window pops up over it on its own, as if I had clicked the ad and if you click the button to close the ad it will close and reopen a second later. It will repeat this endlessly and the only way to escape it is to refresh the page.

    I don't use adblock and the only ad I get is the Complex Games bar at the bottom of the screen. Guess I'm lucky?
