    Site Ad

    Whatever site ad has the commercial (digital sports venture) at the bottom of the page has to go. Having to listen to it start over every time i switch pages is annoying

    Turn your speakers off or volume down? I almost never have my speakers on and I didn't even know what you guys were talking about at first because I never scroll down that far. We need the advertising to keep this site free.

    Don't know about any of that, that's CW's cup of tea.

    Well, CW has said to bring it to his attention whenever an ad is doing audio, because that isnt supposed to be the case. For whatever reason this digital sports ventures ad tends to be a continuing violator..

    Write a check big enough so that they aren't needed to run the site.


    It's all snark from here on out

    It does them no good if the ads are intrusive enough that users start blocking all the ads on the site.

    Oh, wasn't aware of that. I was just making a suggestion to try to be helpful. I could see if you were playing music in the background how it would get annoying though.

    Ditto. I like to listen to a couple of podcasts when I get home at night while I check this site and that ad drowns out anything else I have playing on my computer.

    I've reported the ad and it will be taken down as soon as the admin at Dig. Sports gets it. Thanks.
