They are actually video ads and appear always at the top right box, if that helps.

Yep. Sure does. I'll contact that network in the morning.

Is anyone still having an issue with noisy ads? I reached out to the network that I believe was displaying those awful things. I haven't heard back yet but I haven't seen any of those ads run today (but I rarely saw them at all so there's that).


Ive still seen them frequently today.

For me the noisy video ads are on the right side of the screen, just below the Comunity Blogs links.

Thanks, everybody. I think I've narrowed down the offending network. I have reached out to them, waiting for a response.

Oops ... spoke too soon ... in the middle slot below the articles links ... an audio/video Starbucks ad for iced tea, followed by something that was too long to wait until it ended, but it seemed to be a lengthy demonstration on hair coloring. When I switched forums, it stopped, but then the Starbucks ad popped up right away again.

Well, I do get a lot of shoe ads, but they are silent, and I like them. :)

These video ads are out of control today and are really really slowing down this site/computer for me today. I am literally seeing them in every 300 x 250 zone and they aren't even loading correctly.

Additionally the "content" after the random ass ads is terrible (USA World Cup Preview)

It's gotten worse? Good lord. I've reached out to every ad network we use.

If you see the ad, screenshot it and email it to brock@twinsdaily.com.

Ugh. Just ugh. Sorry about the hassle, everyone. I almost never see these things so I don't know when they're running.

Brock I am going to email you them now, also it has popped up a "Twins daily is running xyz script and is blah blah blah, do you want to close it/stop running?" I will try to copy paste that URL the next time it comes.

It's not even the video at this point that is frustrating, it is literally a corrupt ad that is really screwing things up.

Ditto - right now the site load time is nothing short of obnoxious.

The site load time isn't because of the ads... the Twins traded Morales. We've had far more users than normal today.

No, I was having it way before the Morales news broke. It was literally that stupid ad that was freezing my browser, I eventually gave up and started surfing from the mobile site.

Grrr. We're working on it, everyone. I promise. We've reached out multiple times to every network.

Unfortunately, I'm in the middle of a massive Polaris launch AND a Twins Daily launch at the same time. I physically do not have the time to work on every problem in a timely fashion. John has been helping me sort this out over the past couple of days.

Thanks for everyone's patience. I know how absolutely aggravating something like this can be.
