    Default Does the Samsung advert on MyGaming's home page annoy the crap out of you as well?

    *Rant*

    If that damn Samsung advert expands one more time, preventing me from navigating on MyGaming in order to shove some shitty overpriced phone's advert in my face, I'm installing an add-blocker.

    Youtube's forced adverts is next on the list...

    *Rant over*

    Do you guys feel like this as well? We allow adds as a means of saying "thank you for the content" because we know that someone gets a few cents from it.. but the abuse of this, is getting on my nerves.

    What sorcery is this?!

    I disabled my adblock on MyGaming to support the site, but I haven't seen a Samsung ad at all. Not once. Neither have I seen a popup ad on this site. The only popups I have gotten so far are to ask if I want to take a MyG survey.

    This is all I usually see. An ad right at the top, and a second one lower down.

    I suffer from restless cursor syndrome (I randomly move the mouse around while viewing a site) so I've hit the "Hover here" button a few times. It doesn't irritate me that much, though. At least it disappears quickly unlike some ads I've seen that force you to click a close button before they go away.
    One day, I'll grow up and become responsible.
    Probably not today.

    It annoys me so much that I just skip the front page now and directly enter to the forums.

    Haha yes already enabled ad block again I don't mind ads but as soon as they flash or do shit like that I just block them or even disable the script.

    That seems like the only way to go. I wonder if MyGaming admin will catch up on this?

    Adblock.

    You won't see another ad anywhere, ever.

    Yep and you will also not support the site. I used to use Adblock until I realised how sites like MyGaming need that revenue to keep on going.
