    Default Approved Ads?

    I keep getting a slider ad on the bottom of the screen asking if I have heard about the Beauty & the Beast apparel. Is this an approved ad?

    What is the frequency of this and why does it repeat?

    Just go into your profile and identify yourself as female Worked for me. Haven't seen the odd pop-up since.

    Next time it pops up... absolutely. It is very random.

    It has gotten more aggressive, and comes up for girls now too.

    It pops up for me when I'm posting responses. It's not doing it right now, but it usually does. And I use Adblock. It's really weird.

    It seems to display without the attachment at least at the moment.

    I have noticed attachment glitches with regular members. Unsure if it's a permissions thing on the server side.

    I have not seen the ad in question in a couple of days or else I'd snap a pic of it and attach.

    Thanks, I see it now. It's relatively benign but how it sort of slides itself is a distraction.
    I know this is a revenue stream but for an ad to inconspicuously present itself as a survey then quickly go on and on and reveal it is an ad - reminds me of the little boy that cried wolf. Won't fall for that one again!

    Seeing a new one today. Ironically, it even popped up while reading this very thread.

    Your attachment is invalid... did it look like the one that follows? I was reading the review of Saturday Night Fever. Apparently it is an IB/HDD post as it was asking me questions about physical media and stores closing. Is this just a new direction we're taking due to declining readers? Possibly sponsored by say Google Ads to target you later?
