    the moving ad's were annoying. Now we have ads that, if your mouse strays onto them, expland and invade a quarter of the screen. Are they necessary? Do more annoying ad's bring in more money to the site? If they are necessary then I'll accept them as such, but if alternative ad's can be allowed instead I would prefer.

    Thanks

    I don't think pawnstars should be being troubled by ads at all.. I'm certainly not. I think I read somewhere that you need to log out and log back in again.

    Unless its a flash ad (the type, not what it does) if you hit the ESC key it will stop

    I sit in front of a computer and web browser nearly every day of my life - and that is news to me!! Nice tip!

    Pawn stars should not be seeing ads. You do need to log out and then in again, but I am about to change that right now.

    As for flashing ads - I mailed my ad hosts and said I wanted all extreme animation ads removed - permanently. [They don’t appear to have listened.] I can turn them off manually, but it is a lot of extra admin each time one appears. But I do monitor them and kill the worst offenders.

    Forget the logging in and out. This is now working as it should.

    I do log off & on quite a lot, so that's not the answer. I think there's an ad difference between original PS's & subscribers. I only see the ad's at the top of the screen, and 50% of the time they're "subscribe" ad's.

    The problem's not that bad, and the esc. thing'll probably help, thanks (I used to right click & unclick the "play&quot😉. Save your time for other things - like getting married 😉

    Ah, sorry, yes.

    The ads are off for subscribers only. That was by design 😳 (Russ runs for cover....)

    Problem should be solved now.

    I have found a filter to :
    "Filter-out all new campaigns that contain Extreme Animation"

    If you see any more offenders, let me know, and I will take a look.
