Ads with sound in them
Return to board index
So I run a pretty quite machine. I have sound, but only when I want to. I like to be able to play quite so when my kids are sleeping they dont wake up to something crazy going on. I also used to use Adblock on Chrome but stopped using it on WoWhead because you guys were kind enough to have me turn it off. Well, today I turned it back on because out of nowhere I got this loud, deafening, horrible ad talking about yogurt. I didnt have my sound up that much, but the ad was set to super volume. I never clicked on it. I never moused over it. I never even scrolled down on the page I was on and the thing started up. It didnt happen right away either. It waited for a couple minutes while I was away and then started up loud as all hell. I turned adblock back on for the time being. I cant have this ^&*!.
We shouldn't have adds that play sounds on page loads. That is, without you doing anything like you mentioned (clicking or hovering) Sometimes these adds get through, and reporting them is the best way to get them off Wowhead, so that everyone gets what they want.
Please read our
"BAD ADS!!" sticky
, and if you do take adblock off, which would be the ideal option, please report an ad like this. We will do our best to take it out of the rotation ASAP!
Very sorry for the inconvenience =[
As Hat said, reporting these asap will be the best thing you can do. We hate ads like this as well and will work to remove 'em :)
We've had some excellent reports about these ads that have helped us take a bunch of them down. We really appreciate the detailed reports so please do keep reporting if you still see any more noisy ads.
