    you can disable them - in your profile "disable affiliate videos"
    merging your thread with the main ad discussions

    Thanks, but they have never showed up before. Shouldn't they be disabled by default for patrons?

    since there is actual value to these videos (try watching them sometimes? they're pretty interesting) it's not fair to force disable them for those who still want to watch them. Better disable them on an opt-out basis

    I constantly get adds like this popping up over top of the sight every couple of seconds making it hard to see or read anything. Cant click on anything when there like this either. Hitting the x to close them does nothing. Wouldnt be so bad if they didnt keep popping up every couple seconds. The second pic is what comes up if i click the little box next to the x.

    That's really not an issue we are going to spend our time dealing with.

    AdBlock is not only working on this site, but in all the sites I frequently use there's ads everywhere.

    Are you guys of GBATEMP using Google Ads?
    I'm starting to get a little worried.
    Some days ago, my Google Account got seemingly hacked. I received an email that notified me of a certain IP adress from another city that tried to access to my Google Account.
    I resetted my password to an ever bigger one, and in less than an hour I got the same email that someone had access to my newly created password.
    Now the fucking Google Account is asking me for a phone number (which I don't have)
    And, just yesterday I started to have all these ads all over the Internet.

    So... are you guys using Google Ads? Or am I right to think that this possible ad invasion has something to do with my Google Account being hacked?
    If som MODERATOR could tell me: "Yes, we're using Google Ads" that'd be nice to hear because at least I'd know that this whole sudden ad thing is not related to my Google Account being "hacked".

    Even at the time of typing this, there's an ad above my post.

    Try using a good adblocker like uBlock Origin, ABP gets paid by advertisers to allow ads through their filters.

    Yay!
    ABP does work!

    The thing with ADS is that it slows down the site a lot.

    Yup, I've been getting some seriously detrimental new tab pop-ups when I access GBATemp.net. Why does it always have to be porn? I will not post the ads. What do I need to do to keep this from happening?

    Please can you PM me screenshots? And the URL of the ads if possible. Thanks

    nvm, it is something else. Everytime I open a tab or click a hyperlink I get crazy pop tabs. My wife would kill me if she saw these. now i just got to figure out why my antivirus isn't blocking this.
