Let’s let it go once and for all!

Post by >THE Ben Reilly< on Mon Feb 11, 2019 10:19 pm

First topic message reminder :

Hey everyone, I know we've had some problematic ads lately. I want to explain exactly what's happening.

Forumotion recently created the option to pay a small fee in exchange for running your own ads, which you get  the money from, and I took it.

My hope is that it creates a little revenue to help me and Eddie out, both on saving toward the UK financial requirement and little things like plane tickets.

I do want the user experience here to be smooth, so I'll keep looking for an ad network that won't drive us all crazy.

I hope you all understand that there will be some bumps along the way.

Everyone's support is appreciated. I have avoided conflict and politics threads as I don't need stress just at the moment, .

Well I’m thinking of you mate. We don’t always see eye to eye but I’ve known you a long time and hope to post with you for many more years. X

I am applying to other ad networks to see if we can find a better one. Just please hang in there for now.

Bump.

How boring forums would be if everyone agreed and saw eye to eye.
I plan to be around for years or decades.

Adguard...and it is £15 not £40 pa Nicko, takes a minute to kick in when I first log in. I get a huge popup that covers my log in details, so if I didn't have the Adguard I wouldn't be able to post on here either.

I hope it gets sorted for people soon.

I agree. Even I managed to install those things, and it's free.

I completely understand why nicko has reached the end of his tether though.

Arrow

I'm using the Chrome browser on a Samsung Android tablet..

Like I posted several days ago, I downloaded an updated version of Adblocker+ from Googles Chrome App Store, plus several of their suggested add-ons -- all free-of-charge. (There were also more add-ons for $2 or 3 each, none of which I bothered with..).

While I'm still getting the spew-green-underlines, the popups have largely disappeared -- the Adblocker sends reports back to home base after it encounters malware, so that it's designers can upgrade the adblockers to fight off those criminal advertising/metrics cnts..

The more people who load up the adblockers -- and enable them to report back to their mother ship -- the sooner the various adblocking app's can getting on top of the malware.

for those not wishing to be inundated with ads adblock or a host of other ad blockers will stop you seeing them. they work well in firefox and chrome, and are free, if you are being charged for them you are being ripped off.

Given my background I have no problem with the principle of advertising. Forums such as this are, in a manner of speaking, a service - and any sort of service has to be paid for in some form.

So far as all unsolicited web advertising is concerned, I have simply "programmed" myself to ignore it - easily done because it is almost always unobtrusively positioned on the periphery of pages

My beef is with this infuriating, intrusive and tediously repetitive Infolink spot which has been made deliberately unavoidable in that, on my system at least, it automatically pops up whenever I join any thread, and is carefully designed  and positioned across the text so that I can neither read the wording fully.  Nor am I able to click on the reply box in order to post a comment without hitting the advert delete button every time because the bloody thing covers that also.

Deleting it initially and then being allowed to  proceed unhindered and uninterrupted without having to get rid of a constant stream of unsolicited and unwanted propaganda is surely not too much to ask.

Rest assured that I'm looking for ad networks that provide the smoothest experience here. This one's a hell of a lot better than PopAds, at least.
are you really getting enough income from your membership of 20 or so regulars to justify pissing them off. It sounds like none of them click the links so you would not get the income anyway.

I've installed Adblock and, touch wood, it's working well on this site. So thank you, Wolfie et al, for that.

But for one thing...the infuriating American commentary and ghastly (to me) pop music that runs continually and sometimes loudly in the background and which first appeared with Ben's new advert regime is not only still running here...but has now infested my Facebook page.

And I am fucking well completely and utterly pissed off by it.

I like to listen to classical music while I am online, and it is now impossible to enjoy both at the same time. The Kyrie from Beethoven's Missa Solemnis is currently being foully adulterated by some screeching bimbo's assault on my hearing aid!

Thanks a bunch.

Any suggestions (and please bear in mind that I don't have a PhD in computer technology)

you do know they get a fraction of a penny for every ad clicked, not every ad shown. 10 or so people clicking ads are not going to make a jot of difference. But if they want to piss off the clientèle then that is their choice. Maybe getting an income of £18grand or so might be a better way to get permanent residence

if this gives ben an income of £18000+ a year then you are clicking way to many ads and possibly committing some sort of fraud.

as to being together are you advocating Ben should have some special privilege that others do not. to bring my wife back to the UK I need an income of over £18000 and more to bring her daughter or I believe a very large bank balance can also qualify. should Ben follow home office rules?

becaue the ads will not make them any money unless they are clicked and there are around 10 or maybe 20 people here, almost all have blocked them .Pissing off the people who come here to make pennies does not seem the best way to run a forum.
I dont see the ads by the way let alone click them

Thanks Dean, but it is straight adblock from Google-chrome. Look:

Like I say, I don't want to be cheap, but to put bank data on-line is risky these days. Even some clerk receiving it might be a rip-off fellow, or write it down for someone else

I cant say it happened when I installed it, is it actually asking for details now before installing or as a contribution after installation.

try adblocker ultimate if available in chrome, which I think it is. some of them do ask for a contribution after installation only edge has ever asked me before and I dont use edge as it does not work with VPN's or for that matter display webpages in the same way as firefox or chrome

I think that is the point I have been trying to make, if you had a hundred thousand members clicking 1% of ads each day you might make a few quid. Hardly worth it for what you will make. didge will chuck you a few quid anyway

Not to worry, ben. I don't blame you in the least. I look at it this way: on a cost/benefit basis, the risk of me buying anything as a result of the ads, and giving benefit to you and eds, is nil. So it's not as if I'm taking anything from you, anyway. On the benefit side, getting rid of those ads is shear pleasure.

I don't fault you for trying. We each have to do what we must do. It's just that I have no reason to feel bad about blocking the ads, cause I would never buy anything, anyway.

I dont get the ads, I have a brilliant adblocker.
But for a minute or two before it kicks in, if NF is the first place I visit when I first log on, I can see what everyone is complaining about.
Not only could I not put up with it because it moves about the screen, it also blocks log in details and prevents me from seeing most of the page.

If it was cost affective and I was in Ben and Eddies shoes I would keep it, because lets face it, real life is far more important than humouring people on a forum, no matter how much you love em. I love you

But....it's not cost effective because people either wont post here whilst they are disrupting their forum pleasure or they will use Adblockers, so either way it's defeating the object.

You're never going to make money out of it, because it pays too little and this forum isn't big enough. We could all click on the ads all day for you and you won't make that much more. You'd be better off getting a You Tube blog up there and monetizing that. A good blogger can make thousands on You Tube. There's one girl who makes a mint just unwrapping kids toys and demo'ing them.

See negativity, but with a silver linning

So what should be Ben's blog Hoaratio?

Its actually a good idea (so well done), but there is many out there, so any ideas?

Personally, to me, his blogg should be about his new experince in this country with Eddie and her family. A Texan in the UK

Even more his daily experince on being a new dad.

That would make a great blog on youtube. Of course Eddies litttle girl would have to also say yes to this. As would Eddie

I think it would bring you the attention you need Ben. People can relate to positive emotions. When they see a dad new to being a family. Espically, when they take on a ready made family

hats off to hoaratio here (sorry out of greens)

By blocking you deny them the means for ben to stay here Quill

I would rather put up with the pain of the adds in  order they can be together

Nobody is denying them anything. Stop licking admin arse and trying to make yourself look all selfless and charitable by pulling down others.

They are by placing annoynace of adds over their situation

How is that licking my friends arse to you?

Seriously and i just complimented you in the last post

Was that also licking your arse?

You see this is what people do not like when it comes to people being outspoken

I do not mind you thinking this of me

So ask Ben and eddie, if they think I am licking their arses, or actually that I understand the human mind better than you?

Would you even contemplate that I might?

|If they do not, then happy to admit i am wrong here, so will you if wrong?

Now here is your opportunity to be either rational or emotional

You see here is the difference b etween me and Horatio

I looked raionally at her views and came out fom this with a positive view to help Eddie

She look at my views with a negative view point and looked at me poorly

This is the difference in how each of us think

She and I may be at oidds at times, but i can reognise the positive contribution she gives

She howveer only sees the negative and attacks that

My brain is thus open to all ideas

Hers is controlled when  her emotions are spiked by me simple expressing my views

Seriously Horatio, i can read people like a book. Maybe you need to stop looking towards me with a negative view point. You might then stop using barriers within our conversations. That you have created within your own mind

All the best Horatio

And what do I gain if I don't block the ads? The only pay-off is when you buy something. I'm never going to buy off a random pop-up. So what is gained?

Seems to me it's a lose-lose proposition. Ben and eds get nothing, and I lose a wonderful site. Hats off to ben and eds for a great idea, only the capitalists got there before them and--as is the capitalist habit--their greed ruined it for everyone.

Wow

Its not about what either of us gain here, but  helping Ben and Eddie be together. No matter how small a contribution that is

A life together

This is my point in regards to people  being inherantly selfish, they only think of themselves.

And this from a socialist, who only sees negativity here

Hence my point how now people have become so inherantly selfish and self centered

So Quill, if you can devise a better way. I am all ears. As I am sure Ben and Eddie are also

The fact that people look to block the adds says everything to me. That they place this irritation above the plight they face

If that makes me be a kiss arse to some here

Then I will happily bend over and pertpetually expose my butt cheeks so you can kiss my arse

As to me, true love is everything. Its something they have and we should all support that. As its very rare when people find that

If the rest of you want to whine about some adds, over that of them gaining some money to be together?

What does that say about you?

That you dont have their best interest at heart

Have a good evening

You missed the full quote: "And what do I gain if I don't block the ads?"

You never answered that question. In fact, you avoided the whole point of the matter.

The act of allowing (not blocking) the ads gains nothing for ben and eds. It's an empty reward, and a false proposition to say anything is gained.

I agree with Horatio. You're climbing a bit too far up management's ass for anyone’s comfort. And I'm damn sure it's not comfortable for ben and eds...you are using them.

Why even ask about you here Quill

When will you actually center on both Eddie and ben

They actually gain money from advertizement

If you think I am climbing up their arses, happy to expose them for you, to kiss both cheeks

All that shows is both you and Horatio are both negative people, as you turn this onto me. Not offering a solution for Ben and eddie

You can both kiss my arse, if that makes you feel better about your paranoia. It wont help the fact, you both seem agitated that i call people out on their selfish nature. Not only that. You fail to offer a better solution. You are simple acting like a bitch, whinning.

Cleary you and every poster that replies can see the forum

Hence your claim is an lie and exaggeration

So to me your claim is bollocks

As I have pop ups

I am able to close them also

So again this boils down to people being selfish pricks, not thinking about Eddie and Ben

It's getting worse, ben. Sometimes 3/4 of the Newsfix screen is covered with ads.
