    The ads should no longer overlap the alerts/search/login area. This was fixed yesterday.

    A tip for those browsing the forums. If you collapse the top ad, it'll remain closed for the duration of your forum visit, taking up much less space. Wizard is also working on a premium version with no ads. Details should be available soon.
    Thanks, Terry.

    Are the ads with sound here to stay forever?

    Those are literally the one and only thing that pushed me to get adblock in the first place. It's just absurd that I can pretty much only browse this site with my PC on mute. No other site I frequent inconveniences me that much.

    Thanks for your feedback Duckie. The ads are not created in-house. They are designed between the agencies and Complex.
    Okay, that's fine, but are you telling me that we have no control over where they go on the page? That G-Star Raw ad is seriously screwing up the layout of the site.
    Got a question or gripe about the new forum software? It might be covered in the FAQ.

    these complexgames scrollbar, pop up, and now the new huge top banner ads are making me truly contemplate never coming back to this site ever again.
    seriously man.
    i know wizard wants money, who doesn't, but do these ads...or better put the formula of the way these companies wanna promote themselves haveta be in the manner that sincerely causes serious problems with the functionality of the website.

    i've got 50mbps dowload speed, 8 mbps upload...and the website i have the most problem with is freakin SRK!
    even the most boorish and heavy inundated ad centered porn site doesn't give me this much trouble in loading pages, pages crashing, pop ups blocking posting functions, pages being crushed by top banner ads...

    seriously wizard.
    really?
    seriously?
    really?
    why just not sell the site already.
    its obvious you just dont care anymore.
    just completely sell out already.

    coz its just not worh the frustrations anymore for us man.

    Man they fix the overlapping adds and now we have adds that play sound even if you do not click on them. And if you make the mistake of muting them early they play even louder.

    Yes.

    And we pay for the server maintenance, as well as the licenses for the forum software, with our finely knitted afghans and our man juices.

    Okay, so long as you understand. I'll give you the benefit of the doubt, from your post, that you either are A) Really young and don't understand the laws of economics yet, or B) Have never ran a website to understand the cost of upkeep for one.

    Especially considering how many users are here daily, the cost of upkeep for this site is more than even I would expect.

    Don't you guys run live streams and other side SRK products too? I bet that even adds up. Ads up. Heh.. HEHEHehEHA.

    Yeah, most of us understand that but seriously this is getting out of control. I really hate the roll over ads because they automatically put a big ass screen box every time you scroll over them and it gets nerve wrecking. I still say market SRK better with premium membership deals or other enticing offers to eliminate these ads.

    i've actually been trapped in what i call a "roll-over ad infinite."
    i accidentally rolled over the ad, and the X just happened to be where the roll over link was haha. it happened like twice. i just went to youtube instead.
    do you ever wonder why i'm where i am now?

    I've been holding off for a couple weeks dealing with these new ads, but today they've just driven me nuts. I happen to move my mouse near an ad and my whole screen fills up with some video! I know the ads serve a purpose behind the scenes but this is the first time I've ever complained about ads. Frustrated user.

    The myspace add needs to die a quick death, or at least make it to where the sound doesn't automatically come on.

    With all this ads this page has, you'd think the website would load everything smoothly but no. Half the time I try to load this website, it doesn't work and I get "unexpected database" errors.

    There's never an excuse for autoplay sound ads. If you want to have audio ads, they should be mute default and have to be activated. There are work arounds, yes, but it should not be on your users to run from ads such as these. We totally get the fact ads make money to keep this running, that's fine...but this site really goes through the list of bad web practices in advertising. I've been to stream sites that give me less hell. I would rather close 5 pop ups, than have to deal with a repeating audio ad, roll over expandable, or any form of ad that hijacks my experience to try to make it's sale.

    The biggest issue is the load times though, they're unexceptable. I've checked on two really good rigs with perfectly fine internet and a lot of times I'm met with constant refreshing after waiting 3-5 minutes for a load (and god help me if I'm trying to edit a post).

    Is anything being done to address this?

    I'm sick of opening a page and hearing the ad play. It's even worse if I go through my notifications and open pages in other tabs, and then hear the same damn ad play over and over and fucking over again.

    Yes. As Wiz posted before, new software and new servers are coming in January since Xenforo is not able to handle the SRK traffic.
