Ads with sound

Max Willis 6 years ago • updated by Sarah 6 years ago 4

Hello,


at 21:04GMT on 30/11/2012 I was subjected to at least three adverts on your site which unsolicitedly played sound. The ad units were for Strepsils, Air Wick and one more which I do not recall.


I used the silence button on each ad, but after that ad had finished playing and a new one loaded, the new ad began playing sound.


Please can imgur not use intrusive ads with audio, or make the mute button persistent.


Kind regards,

Max

Thanks for letting us know! We'll try to find those and get rid of them.

Nearly every ad tonight is a video ad with sound! Is this the new Imgur?

So far in the last two days:

Sears (no mute button)

Windows 8


right now these two ads are playing on almost every new page load for both my wife and I

There are SO MANY recently. What's going on? I'll just browse for a bit and list the ones I find: one for a dental clinic, a series on youtube (Ford related?), Home Depot, 



Jeez, there was one every few images for a while there, then nothing!

I understand the need for ads, but every page?  Loud volume?  Not even the fucking courtesy of a mute button on most of them.  It is no longer enjoyable to flip through pics on imgur and that just hurts my soul.  Hopefully the people of Reddit can find somewhere else to image-dump soon.
