Hey :)

Those are our native sponsored ads. Specific users get to see it based on their location. We will be inquiring about what kind of ads will be sent to the community. We'll update you when we have more information.

There are suppose to be NO Ads visible on this site when members are logged-on -period.

Member are/have signed up for Supporting & Lifetime Memberships with the understand that they would NOT see any ads, but these new posts are violating this....?!?

In general all members on this site HATE unsolicited/non-supporting vendor ads.

This is considered SPAM and I have deleted/Banned over 1,400 of Spammers that are doing this exact same thing that is occuring now. I even tried to remove/delete/ban these Spammer Posts, but was unable to banish these uninvited visitors to OUR site.

OMG - Mazda - Please not on this Site!!!

We're trying to conduct TOTM Polls, but there are these two Big, Giant, Huge, over an 1" Posts right at the beginning of the forum;
https://www.thenewx.org/forum/31-truck-month-year-totm-toty/ - WTH - Take them Out of the 'Sticky Zone'....

Mazda lost me in any future interest!!

Hello there,

Seems like this is happening network-wide
We're aware of this and it's escalated.
Will provide info once we get an update on this.

Sorry for the inconvenience,

Ed

I agree - paying members authorized charges to their credit cards with the express understanding that they would not be subject to these ads. It was a material term of the agreement.

Either refund the membership fees in full or remove the ads. You can't have it both ways.

Personally these ads infuriate me, in that, because I live in New Mexico, they are assuming I'm Mexican and speak Spanish, so these ads are being posted this way. I don't need this garbage on this site - so please remove it ASAP!!!

Maybe you are deleting them faster than I can see them, but what I find kinda ironic is I've never paid for a subscription here and have a much more ad-free experience thanks to my ad-blocker than those of you who paid for the privilege. I'd be steamed as well.

Also doesn't bode well as motivation for me to ever become a supporting member.

Actually I don't see those ad's at all, maybe it's ad's only paying members can see? I temporarily disabled my ad-block and logged out and still didn't see them.

Thanks for taking a firm stand against spam. For most users with half a brain it's a wasted effort on the advertisers part anyway.

We understand the frustration with this.
The techs are aware and are looking for a solution to this.
Please standby for more updates.

Again very sorry for the inconvenience,

Ed

These are not pop-up Spam Ads, they are 'posts' within the thread. If your ad blocker, blocks posts then I suspect you can't see anything on this site. In the Screenshot above, you can see the 'post' within the thread and in every single link above it's the exact same thing. All are located in the 'Sticky Zone' and they are all still there.

Then they must be ad's showing up just for paying members. My forum areas look normal. No Mazda threads at all.

Well this is curious. I couldn't find a configuration where I seen them so I tried a different browser. They show up for me in Internet Explorer, but not in Firefox. There was 2 of them in Internet Explorer.

Could be a difference in the caching of the site too. Non-logged-in members supposedly always view a cached version, so if they have been added to the site but not yet propagated to the cache you see, they won't be visible. Logged in users always get a fresh version of the site (I believe, based on comments in the site speed thread), so if they have their coding done wrong on the back end, members would always see fresh posts, but non-members it is possible that the post gets added and removed quicker than the cache refreshes.

Either way, it is stupid on the advertisers/sales team part to be putting things like Mazda ads on this forum. Because clearly all us running lifted Xs with 33"s and various other hardening mods want a small compact car...

Even when logged in I still see ad's, Im not a paying member but i thought that was normal. I expect some ads when browsing online. however it has gotten to the point were it slows loading and impedes view the actual page sometimes.

Also I recently installed an ad blocker and sometimes the page will just continually load or refresh( im assuming as adds are trying to load and present themselves)

Does that mean my ads would be in Russian since I live in Alaska? :scratch:
