    Default Killing Usability at MMI
    Dear MMI,

    Ive been a member here for a few years and been happy to be a part of it. Tonight I come on to find "Ads" that cover the screen and make the screen unusable for 30 Seconds or so until the "Ad" finishes. Its been 3 minutes and have gotten 2 - 30 second Ads.

    I think its a bad decision to make forum members look at this stuff with no way of choosing to exit out of it. I understand the need for ads to run servers blah blah blah, but this will make members look elsewhere for their news.

    My two cents, its overly annoying and cumbersome.

    I don't know. I was signed in on my iPad and it did it to me to. But not on any of my other machines.

    Sorry to hear about these problems. I'm moving this to the Site Suggestions | Feedback forum.

    I had this issue as well, but it was only before I signed in. Yesterday to be exact.

    It has happened to me at least 5 or 6 times in the last week also. And I am signed in (I never log out ever, lolz).
    Work around for me is that I refresh the page, and it goes away.

    The ads are chosen by Google.. Not MMi so unfortunetly we have no control over the content... Sorry.

    This is so frustrating! I'm signed in and I keep getting these pop up ads. Tried signing out and resigning back in and still get these ads. (actually got one while typing this post)

    I agree. Is happening to me and i just close out and leave so it's definately not beneficial for the site.

    It is doing it to me as I am posting this reply. Can't go to any page without it popping up. 30 seconds add up to minutes, then hours, and soon days!!!

    Just refresh the page and it will go away. Pain in the butt we know, admin will look into it for sure.

    I'll look at that - we DO have control, and those should NOT be coming up that much for anyone.
