I'm thinking the Kleenex ads have to be connected to TheFashionSpot, right?
Considering that there is a Kleenex ad right on the front page of TFS.

Ok I did read the first note of the thread and my post might not belong here but I didn't see any other thread appropriate.

I usually don't mind commercials on TFS except when they are noisy. It's been a while now that noisy flash animation advertisements are getting on my nerves. I open a page and some french commercial start jabbering on air freshener or toilet bowl cleaner (my favorite). When the loudspeaker of my laptop is turned off it's ok but otherwise I have to scroll down the pages to find the commercial and shut it down.
It wouldn't have been too annoying if those commercials were momentary but it feels like it's been a while now (I can't remember when it started - weeks ago?). Even if those ads are alternately with others silent ones there are moments of the day where they're on every page. In those moments I've reached the point where I restrain from checking too much threads because almost everytime I open a page I'll have to hear this stupid ranting again.
Does TFS have the choice on silent or noisy commercials? Is this thing happening for other countries aswell? I'm really curious to know if it will become a routine. And well... if you can't help it at least it felt good to complain about it lol.

I forwarded your inquiry to the site manager, Fantomette.

The system administrators are looking into this.

We are trying to get more information on:
  • What countries are experiencing the loud ads
  • What ads are they?
Any feedback will be appreciated.

To be more definite in my case the loud ads are promoting the following products:
- « Finish Quantum » dishwashing tablets (it lasts 25 seconds)
- « Harpic Power Plus » ( 40 seconds)
- « Air Wick Freshmatic Compact » (40 seconds)
(They sell these products with english names in France)
I noticed the same ads sometimes appear in silent version with the possibility to click to hear the sound.

Thank you tangerine

Is it a techinical problem ... you can not close it? Or it feezes you computer? Please let me know.

If it's just an annoyance ... venting may be done here: Irritating Advertisements/ Popups

I've got it too... the adverts recently are really spoiling my enjoyment of TFS... especially on my work comp which seems to stall when it goes to load up the adverts... I'd rather pay to use TFS than be bombarded with advertisements... I hate them!
