Ad at the top of warrior pages is driving me crazy!

47 replies
Can someone please explain to me how to make the ad for david prestons workshop disappear?

Its appearing on every single page over and over and again. After the 100th time viewing it, I'm officially sick of looking at this advertisement.

Edit: The problem is now fixed. It turns out it was a cookies problem after all. Apparently someone who lives in my house reset my cookies settings.

Anyway, if you are using firefox, go to Tools, Options, Privacy, Cookies, and then change Keep Until: to "they expire." This should fix the problem.

    That makes the ad even more beneficial and worth looking into. That makes sense!

      Zachary,

      There's an 'ignore' feature on this forum.

      Maybe if you set it to ignore Allen's posts the ad might disappear.

      Only problem is, you might disappear, too.

      to do with browser settings. especially if people

        I've tried different browsers even different computers and I keep getting the same thing. The ad appears not only when I login but also when I check my messages or subscribed threads, reply to a post, and check other sections of the forum.....hence the reason I'm getting a little annoyed.

    How many of us would be in a very different situation today were it not for Allen Says?

    I'll put up with some ads,,, heck,,, I'll put up with a ton of them...

    May even look into one or two ;-)

      I use FireFox too - ver. 3.0.5 - not sure what version Bev is using, but I have not experienced repeat displays.

    I agree. If you don't want to see the ad then start your
    own forum, make it as successful as this one and then
    you get to decide wheather or not to show an ad.

    Well this forum has some great info in it so I don't mind seeing those ads...

    For the people that are complaining... when you drive your car on the highway and see the same old billboards day after day what do you do?

    Do you close your eyes when driving past it..?
    Do you speed up to get past faster..?
    Do you take a chainsaw to the billboard supports..?
    Do you take a different route other than that highway..?

    Just curious because I get a lot of info from here and Allen only posts quality ads that are worth the time in the first place.

    I don't see anyone here saying the ads should not be seen. I think they just want the ad to go away when it is supposed to. Even Allen himself acknowledged that the ad is set to be seen once.

    With that being said, those of you having this problem may want to try a couple of things.

    First, click on the ad and see if that will drop a cookie that will make it go away.

    If that doesn't work, log out of the forum, go to a different site (google for example), clear your cookies and your cache, then go back to the WF by typing it manually in your browser. Log in, then click on the ad and see if that will make it go away.

    I'm certain that this issue is with your individual computers and not the forum itself since the majority of us are not having this problem.

      While I agree that seeing this advert is a small price to pay for the information you're getting in the forum, it does drives people mad if they see it every time they access the forum. I have seen it every time I log in and it only disappeared after I used FireFox instead of IE.

      I don't think it's Allen's intention either so it's good that we report these things.

    This is Allen's forum and he can do what he likes. This forum is free and you get some of the best information on the net right here. The ad is a small price to pay. Not only that if you are thinking about going into the off line market that is one of the best products you can get to show you how to do it. Last I heard nobody is forced to come here.

    I know that I don't need to read these threads, but they are becoming a little bit repetitive.

    Every time a new ad appears on the forum someone starts a thread about it.

    Personally, I don't have time to worry about it... or to post in this thread for that matter.... see ya :-)

    I see it every time I arrive, was seeing it every time I hopped to a different forum, but it seems to be reducing now.

    I don't so much mind it but was confused at first and kept thinking I'd hit the wrong link or the link was broken, everything kept going to the "same" page.

    This is made worse by the ad loading before the forum itself, so can't scroll down or anything for a moment. To a new visitor who is not sure if the forum works, especially if following the "the new forum is here" link from the old one, it could be a show stopper.

      Hi,

      I've been seeing it constantly too, and for a long time the ad was double - it repeated itself (Firefox) - no problemo.

      Having to scroll a few inches didn't make me 'annoyed', 'mad' or 'angry.'

      If it did, I'd change something about myself, rather than the ad, to solve the problem.

      Seriously, life's too short to let such things invoke negative emotions. If you're young, you will probably discard this advice. As you get older, you will either start agreeing with me, or find yourself ageing far too quickly and turning rapidly into 'Victor Meldrew' of 'one foot in the grave.'

      'I doooon't beliiiieve it...'



      Hi BigSofty,

      I don't so much mind it but was confused at first and kept thinking I'd hit the wrong link or the link was broken, everything kept going to the "same" page.
      It helped to re-assure me I was in the right place ;-)

      Hi Leanne,

      Cheers!

      Yeah I like many Lou Reed songs, but mainly the more obscure ones (I am the same with many of my favourite musicians, but I guess I accept that the commercial singles need 'rounded edges' etc to make them universally palatable/danceable(?)).

      But I would add that compared to many, I actually like more of his more universally popular tracks, than I do with others - perhaps because it's from that generation just before marketers took a grip, along with (MIDI) electronically enhanced musicians.

      Back on topic - I'm more than a little intrigued by the quantity of people who get rattled by an ad on this forum. I admit that many interruptive marketing ads DO rattle my cage. But because my visits here are a part of my work, I'm particularly keen not to allow anything to arouse negative emotions - whereas when it happens during my 'playtime' - I'm a little less easy-going about it.

      How do people get through a working day when having to scroll a bit on a forum gets them so riled that they would voice that opinion here, knowing that it's an affront to the value that they receive here for free? I can only assume that the reason is because they find it particularly annoying.

      Yet I would wager that many of these people happily subject their prospects (their 'bread and butter') to virtual assistant lockdown and multiple OTO hell.

      I'm not looking to suggest that I am right or anything (for a change ) but it does intrigue me.

      Anyone?
