Kill off the video ads

Thread Starter 
Do they make enough money to cover the annoying experience (excessive bandwidth use, audio starts for somer reason on some, more power use, laggy system response if you open "too many" pages) of having them?

If you ever see advertisements that feature autoplaying audio, pop-outs, pop-unders, pop-ups, or anything else which gets in the way of your experience or is otherwise annoying, please right-click the ad, copy its URL, and send the links to me directly. I'll work with our ad team to ensure these problematic advertisements are blocked ASAP.

We encourage you to not use ad blocking software on the site, as we do depend on ad impressions to keep the lights on and the servers running - but in exchange for you not blocking our ads, we do everything in our power to prevent ads from getting in the way of your browsing experience.

Please provide the URL where the advert leads you to when you click on it and we can investigate. Without the URL there is little we can action.

Kind Regards,

Top right and bottom right of the discussion thread in full mode, sometimes they're static and sometimes they are video.

Unfortunately not all will see the same ads, this can be due to browsing history tracking being unique among members etc.

Just use Adblock Plus. I don't see any ads at all. And on top of that, if you do, Wikia won't make any money. biggrin.gif
