Periodically, I have been getting redirected to an ad [just random ones], I have popup controls blocking pop ups bu t these are occuring in place of what should be showing. [they take up the full window] Is anybody else getting this, or is it supposed to do that?

The ads you are seeing are intersticials. We have recently added them to the forums. They should only be apppearing once every three hours.

How many total have you had displayed? We are emailing to find a resolution to this. You should not be getting more than one every 3 hours. If you could tell me approximately how many ads you've had displayed that would be helpful.

One more thing, if you could, what ads are you seeing displayed when it shows up?

Today i've only seen one but i havn't been on that long. But yesterday I was on for apx an hour and half and saw apx 5. One was for something about some game program, I wasn't paying much attention I just was like um--- how is this getting past the popup block. then realized it wasn't much of a popup since it was in the same window. LOL

I get one every time I click onto a new board. There's the George Bush one, the "Who is this baby picture"-- MIchael Jackson, Drew Barrymore, I forget who else, the Classmates one... and they keep recycling over and over again.

We have put in an email. Hopefully we will get an answer back soon. I have only seen an ad one time in the last two days so I am not sure what is going on. But we are working on it.

Just adding that I been having the same problem like everytime I time I relog in and I had no clue why this was happening until now. Not sure if it's corrected yet but I get the ones mentioned above and the warp game between Kerry and President Bush and I hit skip and it was funny because their faces/lips froze in a funny position -like a fish LOL was going to post a funny about it but since I mentioned it here I won't.

Here is what we think the problem is. This seems to only be causing problems for a few people. The ads are tracked by cookies. They are set to be shown to you no more than once every three hours. So if you do not have cookies enabled your browser has no way to track how often you have seen the ad.

What you will need to do is adjust your cookie settings. With Internet Explorer you click on tools, then internet options, then privacy. I have mine set at medium. This is the only browser I am using at the moment so I will have to look up instructions if you are using another browser.

I hope this helps.

I have FireFox. I have no problems with it. With this browser you can not adjust the cookies. Either you accept them or you dont. The browser has a built in firewall though.

You should still be getting them. But how frequently are you getting them? I am not sure what to do because most of the members are only getting them a couple times a day. I can tell by looking at our stats that they are not playing that frequently. I am only getting an ad a few times a day.

I apologize if this is a nuisance but we are limited on the type of advertisers that will advertise on forums. Because they get a high repition of the same users we don't have a lot of options. We get a lot of traffic to our boards and we have had to add more advertisers to support the traffic. We may eventually add an ad free option for anyone that is interested and willing to offset the operating costs but at the moment that is not something we are doing. We want JM to be free to our members and we are doing the best we can with this.

To think of it --- when the ads started I didn't download the AOL thing. I maybe get one once each time I come on [normally for like 30 mins] now since I downloaded the new AOL. SO! lol Its all good! I don't mind ads as long as they aren't going to cause any problems with my computer [ie virus' as some do or caused by]

Everytime I get the ad (only once per session btw) I get logged out, is this happening to everyone?
