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!
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.
