View Full Version : New Problem: Ads within text while logged in?

Ok, so you know the ads that have blue or green underlines on some words, and when you hover over them or click, they give you something that usually isn't relevant? Well, I was just looking at the thread "LOGGERIFIC" in Celebrations, and on Hiiro's post, some of the words within his post had these ads while I was logged in. I know PC has these ads for guests, but why am I seeing them if I am logged in? It's the first time I have ever come across that and I find it odd. :\

And yes, my cookies were recently cleared, and I have no cache to clear as I am on the Wii Opera browser.

EDIT: I am now starting to find them all over PC. Even on this post, with the word "C-a-c-h-e" and "O-p-e-r-a B-r-o-w-s-e-r" above.

apparently the ad script wasn't working properly and, after I asked them to check it, it appears to be working again.

Odd. It still isn't working for me. The word "A-v-a-t-a-t" in my sig has an ad, as well as the word "C-a-c-h-e" in that post, as well as the word "P-o-s-t-s" in my postbit. How long does it take for this to come back into effect?

if you are seeing for 2 or 3 to 10 or so of those links per page (only on threads/posts) then it IS working.

I don't even see these green hyperlink ads.

Ads? What ads? Ever since I found Zango hiding behind a Pokemon World Online banner when I first joined, I have been blocking all of them by default. They are too much of a security risk in my opinion to take a chance, plus I never click on banners anyway.

There isn't an ad blocker on the Wii Opera. And I thought those ads were only for guests. I know the ads that are at the tops and bottoms of pages go away after so much of donations, but I thought (always) that ads within the text were guest-only "features".

Was that a conscious decision on your and/or other staff's part to help with financing this site?
Just because, I've never seen any in-text ads before (while logged-in) in my entire time here.

Are you implying that now we have Mouse-over text advertisements for members?

I don't see anything, and I don't think other supporters T1+ or 2+ do either. But since when has this been in place and why? Just wondering.

Yes, I am saying just that. I thought it was a bug or something.

I've noticed it too but it's not that bothering to me. But the word: Credits in Team Fail's signature is an ad link. But then on another post of his it's not... So I dunno. But I don't mind it that much at all.
