As a DBSTALK CLUB member I just had to turn ads off, whereas I normally leave them on to support our forum sponsors.

I noticed the "your the 100,000th visitor" flashing ads too. Very annoying. I reported them to the mods but received no reply so I guess they're legit.

By leaving them on how are they helping the sponsors if we don't clicky?

There are two levels of payment ... one for display and one for click through. If the ad displays credit is given. If someone clicks through more credit is given.

Do you have to follow through at all or just click them? If all I have to do is open a tab then close it I'll click them more often. :D

Hi...

We do not allow such ads on the site and our third party ad suppliers know that. Sometimes something get through the filters though. I would need to know where the ad comes from in order to try to stop it further. I myself have not seen the ad so it could be targeted based on IP or something.

Thanks and sorry.

Thanks for responding, and I will turn the ads back on when these have cleared. I was used to seeing the ads from Solid Signal and Standout Designs, both companies that I've dealt with (very successfully too).

Got one as well. "This is no joke, your the 999,999th visitor" Odd, since I've seen it several times over the past week or so. url in the ad says points to: localpromotion.com

For the past few days the ads were like flies buzzing around the picnic table. Very persistent. Today they're gone......odd

Put your glasses on Nick. I was "compairing" the annoying ads being all over the DBSTALK site like flies buzzing around a picnic table.

I MAY have found it and blocked it. So we will see.

A little inside look...Below is a screen shot of the restrictions I have in place (see attachment). As you can see, I really do not like intrusive ads either. Never have. Ad plays a roll to keeping the site alive, that's for sure, but I also know, and have known, their is a balance. More or less, if it is something I would not like that I find to be distraction, I would not want it on any of the sites I operate.

Sometimes they get though and you need to hunt for them and more or less block them directly as the filters do not always work. That is the case here. Thanks for the help guys. Clicking on ads of interest helps the site (please do not stop), but thank you for trying also to help find this one.

Special Regards.

Still here. Not sure what you need, but I did right click and copy link location and it gave me this:

http://ib.adnxs.com/.../appn/index.php

When I searched for this thread, there was another. This time I did copy image URL:
http://cdn.adnxs.com...40f3cb5f6a0.gif
and copy link URL:
http://ib.adnxs.com/.../appn/index.php

I then opened this thread to find another. Image:
