Isn't GAG's advertisements too over-the-top now?
I'm above 8,500 Xper, so it's been quite a long time since I have had to deal with ads, but when I did, the ads were not NEARLY as bad. I just logged off to see how bad the ads are and I was like, "This is fucking obnoxious."
It's one thing to have banner ads, which we had when I wasn't Level 7, but nowadays, you GAG folks have all these obnxious pop-ups too? I feel bad for all of you under Level 7. GAG, this is unacceptable, coming from a guy who's Level 8 who doesn't have to deal with ads, so... I'm not just another plebeian whining about it.

Yes i dread logging in because it takes the site forever to load from all the ads. Also, I'm on my phone and half the time it automatically brings me to the apps page to download some random app.

The ads are getting a bit intrusive... although they've calmed down for me. The pop up stuff was so damn irritating!
It was nuts being a 50,000+ XPer user and still dealing with popups.

gosh I'm taking my guru status for granted then lol... i had no idea it was that bad for others.
really needs to stop =/ it's not fair on others.
I'm starting to see adds while signed in and I have over 21,000 xper. So I'm not sure what's going on there. I find them annoying for sure!
It's nbd on PC since you just click the x, but I haven't seen it on mobile yet which is where I assume it's more annoying.
I dont know if it was just this once, but there was a "recommended sites" pop up when I logged on...
That's kinda over the top
GaG had obnoxious pop-ups when i first joined
i guess since no one is donating, they are doing that again to maintain running this site
Hey you guys, install adblock! It works like a charm and it's free.
I understand your frustration, however like other people already mentioned, site running costs money. They need to cover the costs to maintain the site, that's why there are so many adds.

I have my pop-up blockers disabled and...
ahhh... free and easy ad free experience. I mean.. G@G needs the advertisement revenue one way or another. Hell, I even disable the adblocker on YouTube channels I like to the content producers can get some dosh so meh , I'll play ball
You know what? They just earn $24,730 annually and they'll have to pay gift cards too lol. They're poor, that's why they increased ads to pay the expenses and a lot of people use adblocker too.
I was thinking of starting over on my account and it was the thought of being in the ad zone again for 5,000 pts that stopped me.
Keeping GAG running costs money, no one will want to pay for this site so they have to have the ads.
This site is free and that's where all the advertisements come from. Unless you want to pay 5 cents per question you ask instead of load of advertisements.
It's how they get their big bucks
Can't blame them. They have to make money to maintain this site.
