Default Answered: Forgot how/if you can report an ad here...

Hello all-I just logged in to WI about 20 minutes ago, and clicked to go to a profile page, and heard a loud "Congratulations, you've won!". I scroll to the left, and on the left side of the WI page, where an ad is, was an ad that said "This is not a joke-you're the 100,000th visitor!" and then a button to click for a prize. Pretty sure the ad had a smiley face too. It wasn't so much the type of ad that concerned me, but the graphics and sound. I really don't like how the ad was "talking"-that startled me, and it could scare people, and what bugged me a lot was the flashing border around the ad-it was an electric blue/white flashing, and it was very bright and flashing incredibly fast-so fast that it made me dizzy for a little, and it could cause seizures for people.

Unfortunately, I did not get a screenshot, but is there any way that maybe the staff could look into this? Thank you.


EDIT: I just got it again-it seems to be frequent when visiting profiles-here is screenshot:

I recently just got this ad too. It made me jump. I'm not sure if you can report these kinds of things, but remember that some of the ads may pay WI to be on here, which helps it become a better site for us. So if I have to deal with a little annoying ad here and there, I'm ok with that!

If you can get a SS of it the next time you come across it, that would be great. Just pm any staff member that is on and we can go from there

Yikes!! That ad just freaked me out! Yep, it has a smiley face and it says "This is not a joke! You are the 100,000th visitor!" Gosh, there must be a bunch of 100,000th visitors!

Thanks, Carly and jazinoc. I don't necessarily mind the ads, and I am not complaining that ads are there, but these "speaking ads" have given my computer viruses before, they mess with the sound if I am listening to something else, and the flashing is really terrible-it makes me dizzy to look at it, and it's hard to crop the screen without losing some other parts. I think I remember hearing there was a way to report it.

I actually only got that ad once. But it scared me to death! I kept refreshing the page. No luck. (Note to self: Refreshing page does NOT help to get rid of a talking ad.)
