New "noisy" ads?
anyone else getting annoying audio-enabled automatic ads playing in the bottom right corner?... jfost is really ignorant, he often just needs simple facts laid out for him...

Seriously, what's with the random audio I'm getting from this place?
Auto playing, random stories about "soot" and whatnot. Comeon TGR, you're better than that.I still call it The Jake.

I just heard a really awesome one for laundry detergent. They must be targeted ads, since lord knows none of you guys do your own laundry....but hey, it's free advice on the internet, right? -Mustonen

I fucking hate these ads. Especially when you have 6 TGR tabs open and you have no fucking clue which one is playing the audio because the fucking video is at the bottom right corner.
Seriously, there are better ways to pay for the site and keep you guys in business than these fucking video ads._______________________________________________

Annoying ads are starting to make me thinkg of an ad=blocker. Unexpected noise is annoying and could be bad at work.

just install ad block or ad block plus provided you're using chrome or ff. problem solved. not only does it take away the video ads it also takes away all the other banner ads that are flash heavy and slow down your browser.

To make things worse, the last one started to talk to me in Spanish. I don't speak Spanish.

I was getting them too, however they seem to have recently stopped.
Basically I had to close and reopen the window and reload the page I was viewing at the time that the ad started to spew sound without asking.

Ikea ad this time.
If you mouse over the window, a control bar appears (sort of like a youtube window),
there is an option to mute the sound, which I did, we'll see if it sticks or not.
In the mean time, it's intrusive and unwanted, not to mention sucking up bandwidth.
Please make it stop.

My apologies, guys. They should all be gone in the next 15 minutes or so, if not sooner. We were trying some new tags out and I had been assured that the audio ones had been pulled from rotation, which they clearly were not.
