Advertisement with Sound

So currently, an advertising for Adecco has been showing up for me right under the Utopiatemple banner. Now I don't mind advertisings generally, but this one makes sound. Not only does it make sound, but it makes a loud sound. Scared the crap out of me first time I heard it, now it's just really annoying.

Any chance that this could be fixed?

Brother Green would probably have to contact the advertising network, which could take god only knows how long.

Ads with sound suck. Period.

On that note, I have no clue what your talking about.

lightbulb Re: Advertisement with Sound

I have removed this ad, and instructed to remove also all other ads with auto-sound. It is possible that more "annoying" ads will be added as a result, so please let me know if you see them and I'll remove them also.

"The new MMORPG Fiesta" is also doing a sound thing. It's only short, but it's still annoying.

Could you remove that one as well please?

I reviewed all similar ads, but couldn't find anyone with sound. Can you please attach a screen shot of it, so I could identify it?

BTW: If the sound is invoked by a user action (for example, hovering the ad), then it's legitimate and will not be removed.

It's only a short sound at the start of it, and it only comes up rarely, but I thought I'd mention it anyway.

I'll take a screenshot next time.

Took a while for it to come back, but here it was.

It was a ~5 second sound, not dependant on whether I moused over it or not.

Since it is so rare (and no one else seems to be bothered by it), you can leave it up if you want. Just placing it here to prove I'm not crazy

Here's the action photo (sound not included):

It's here quite often now, and it's getting a little annoying when I'm listening to music and such.

Any chance you can remove it after all?

Re: Advertisement with Sound

This is weird, but I couldn't find this ad in our pool. I found other ads for this game, but they were harmless.

Thank you BG For your quick and responsive handling of the ads. I for one don't see any adds on UT, but knowing you work this well at making your users happy ... thank you.

That *is* weird.

Oh well, thanks for looking.
