Report audio ads here

Joseph just messaged me via facebook about audio ads he's getting. I'm trying to track down which of the ad networks is causing this so I could report the issue.

If you get an auto-play audio ad, report it here. A screenshot would help a lot.

    Have you been getting the audio ads today?
    - Paul October 14, 2010, 2:20 pm
    actually not so much but i havent had the volume on for the most part
    - tacolad October 14, 2010, 2:23 pm
    If you get an annoying ad, it would really help if you posted a screenshot of the ad. I really don't like the idea of audio ads on the site. We need to track down who's causing this.

    will do boss!

    - tacolad October 22, 2010, 6:29 pm
    Thanks, the ad is gone.
    - Paul October 23, 2010, 6:25 am
    and i got 2 others since i made that comment :/
    - tacolad October 23, 2010, 10:23 am
    Did you get any since my comment? I've replaced the ad networks 4 hours ago.
    - Paul October 23, 2010, 10:28 am
    i got another just now
    - tacolad October 23, 2010, 10:40 am
    Oh, I see I forgot to replace the ads in the comment notification section of the site. Is this where you got that ad? I'm working on it now.

    I use Chrome and AdBlock so I don't get any ads at all.

    About that. We're actually considering disabling ads for registered members. No adblock would be needed.

    Me likey
    - Ertrov October 18, 2010, 12:28 pm
    That would be awesome. But, would that not affect the amount of money the site makes from ads?
    - CallMeGoogle October 18, 2010, 1:14 pm
    I would guess that most (99%?) of our visitors are not registered members. It's mind blowing how many lurkers we have. I haven't done the math yet, but I think we would only lose a fraction of ad views.
    - Paul October 18, 2010, 2:10 pm
    Oh wow! Damn creepers. :p Although, I did come on Sharenator regularly for about 8 months before making an account.
    - CallMeGoogle October 18, 2010, 6:06 pm
    I like this idea

    I get this error message when I try to post them:

    ad with sound.bmp - Error! File type is not supported
    ironic audio ad.bmp - Error! File type is not supported

    Can you save these images as .jpg files? MS Paint's "Save as.." dialog has a drop down menu for file types, you need to select jpg (or jpeg).

    funny thing was as i was going to post this one there was a lysol one on this post.

    Well I tracked down the ad network which is causing this and emailed them about the audio ads. I have removed their ads until this gets fixed.

    Ok I know this is not an audio ad but the US Cellular ad messes up the whole page. It covers the whole top left of the page so you cant click any of the buttons. Its happened to me a lot today and im not to happy about it not being in the banner spot where it should be

    - Paul December 23, 2010, 8:42 pm
    they appear once in a while
    - thekitkatkid December 23, 2010, 8:46 pm
    These are auto play audio ads, right? They start playing when you load the site? I'll try to fix this asap.
    - Paul December 23, 2010, 9:00 pm
    yeah, most are around 20sec u can't pause most of them. I have only ran into one that you can pause, but the pause button was well hidden.
    - thekitkatkid December 23, 2010, 9:03 pm
    Do you still get these ads?

    I know this ad, they are currently our biggest sponsors. If it doesn't play without your permission, I think it's ok. If you still find it annoying, let me know :)

    ya it's not that annoying just want to let you know

    this isnt an audio ad, but i keep getting french adverts. its being bugging me so i translated it.

    It just says "télécharger" (french for "Download"). That seems to have gone now, but i have another french advert.

    I haven't got one in awhile and i'm on here every day even on my iPad I can't remember the last time I got one. But i usually have iTunes open when I'm on my computer so maybe they only happen if there isn't another program open that can play sound??
