With regard to Offseason Handbook ads
Posted 24 October 2012 - 06:11 AM
Would people prefer other ads for, you know, bull****, instead?
I was rather curious when reading some veiled and not veiled complaints about the ads and the links in stories. Really? Really?
I think it's awesome (awesome in the sarcastic form) that people complain about the ad-content of a free site, promoting one of the only avenues the writers have to recoup some of the costs to run the site, while also providing the site users with even more content. Some people just like to complain.

It's not a twinsdaily issue anyways, but the ad network issue. They got most of them cleaned up, but ran into another one today which was fine, the issue was a couple months ago when 50%+ of the ads were like that.

I do find the Offseason Handbook ads to be over the top, but I don't find them annoying. I have to agree that all of the OTHER ads are a bit much for me. Along those lines - I have had one hell of a time posting replies and/or navigating the mobile site. Is there a possibility that all the ridiculous ads are messing the site up on my phone or something? Maybe I should head over to another thread for that complaint..
Are you using the full site theme to browse on your phone? I'd recommend using the mobile site theme for your phone... To change it, scroll to the bottom left of any page and look for the drop-down menu located there and select the "Twins Daily Mobile" theme.

Mobile site already. Tonight I haven't had any problems. Yesterday I closed out of it because of the problems it was causing. Idk what the deal is.
Huh, that's strange. The ads on the mobile side of things are really minimal. They have no animation and take up just a few KB of space. If you're having a problem with the mobile skin, there's about a 99.9% chance it's not the ads.

Dave, if you see one again, let me know the page and location. I thought we had them all cleared out but there could be a straggler or two left in there somewhere.
I'm still getting the occasional annoying survey add that pops up, but I'm rather enjoying the hot single ladies that desparately want to go out with me.
