Today I started getting REALLY UNWANTED audio ads on WI - how do we STOP THESE???????

I've PM'd Justin. I'm a WI subscriber. Anything else I should do to promote the end of this awful intrusion?

Anyone up to the challenge out there?

Good luck!
actually, there is a way to mute Google Chrome.
Go to the Chrome web store and do a search for the Chrome Toolbox. It's free, and one of the features is a mute all tabs feature. Makes my life a lot happier as I can now listen to music & play webkinz at the same time!

I hate those. I really do. Besides pming Justin, you'll just have to keep audio muted.


(Or, how about a mute BUTTON!!! )

Yes, but I use a timer on my computer for various things, so that means that I can't be on WI simultaneous with other things - and it's WI that will get lost, not RL work...... :/

I THOUGHT that by subscribing we would see/hear NO ads. But I have a Progressive ad on my side bar. Are we supposed to have ads?

That shouldn't be happening. Perhaps just refresh the page, another add should come up. I know it's an annoying thing to do, but it should help until it's sorted out.

OMG I heard one of those the other day,
and it was like, a radio interview or something,
and the person being interviewed was using horrible language!
You should tell Justin that, so that way he makes it more of a priority to get rid of those ads.

I think if Justin hears only from one person he might be less inclined to consider this a timely issue than if he hears from more than one.

I remember a while back there was one with a baby crying that was, quite simply, maddening, and came close to causing my absence from WI until it was dealt with. As it was I grew crankiness.
Visual ads, age-appropriate / appropriate, are one thing - audio ads......

I agree with Vanberk, and others! Having to deal with a visual ad is expected, and acceptable. It is a huge inconvenience, and annoying to boot to have your computer blaring an ad at you! DISLIKE!!

I just turn off my volume. It's a simple solution, but it works!

Default Re: OBNOXIOUS AUDIO ADS ON WI

Yeah those ads can get really annoying.
However, since your a WI subscriber, you can turn adds off. To do so, go to "Edit options" under user CP and scroll to the bottom. There, there should be an option to turn them off.

Also, WI signs up for "Family Friendly" ads from google, so they don't pick the ads. However, I'm pretty sure they can do something about them. If you see an inappropriate ad on here, PM a admin with some information about it. (Page you ere on when you saw it, what it was advertising, time, etc. etc.)
