TNT pop over ad

Is anybody else seeing the ad for a new tv show called Monday Mornings? Sometimes I see it as a side bar ad, that's fine. But for several days I've been getting it as a pop-over ad on various boards. (I am not scrolling over it, in fact when it pops up it is usually not showing in side bar) When I click to close it, it just comes back. Its not there all of the time, but often enough to be very annoying. We don't need any additional hassles with the boards these days.....so please can somebody see about controlling it's pop over capabilities?

ETA: when I started to preview my post it popped over. Give me a break!

Yes, I am sure it is the same poster Sue, she frequents both of our boards. (I lurk over on your board often as I am on the fence contemplating HSing the little ones in the next year or two.)

I've been annoyed by the Monday Morning ad for the past week or so.  It was especially ironic when it appeared on the really stressfully horrendously awful Monday I had at work last week.  I thought to myself, "Why would anyone want to make a tv show about Mondays?  It's bad enough to experience them, without having to watch them on tv too!"

I had the same complaint from someone on one of my boards today.  It might have even been the same iVillage user, I'm guessing.

Hi..

While I don't know the whole tech-terminology for it, the ads run differently than the data for our boards. Two different entities when it comes to serving the boards...in my very non-tech explanation lol

Thanks Erin, I will let you know if I continue to see it.

A "just wondering" question: could the moving ads be part of the slow down/data overload issue? I wonder if disabling the movement in the ads might help with the other issues? I realize that the advertisers probably pay for and want the moving ads, but if they are contributing to the problems then maybe they could be stilled until the problems get resolved. Just an idea.

Hi Everyone —

They're going to flag this one so it stops showing on the boards. Please give it some time for the system to refresh and then you should stop seeing it. If you continue to see it, please let me know!

Thanks,

I have not see that one yet, but I did have one lady on my board complain this morning that it took her 4 times logging in and 2 different browsers to get to the board, but the ads and pop ups were working just fine, and "go figure".  I have had many more issues today, not only staying logged in, but getting error messages and "internet explorer timed out" trying to navigate the boards today.

Hi..

I finally got to see it! In short, it's behaving as it should be as the "x" in the corner allows you to close it out.

Let me know if that's not the case though, if you're unable to close it or it's causing pages to not function properly.


Thank you...

I wish I could but it's a video and my screen chot gizmo just sits there and waits for it to stop moving and then it goes away...
