New ads

I understand why you were turning them on, but these new ads are a bit annoying...
Will bronze-level backers be free from them?

Which ads specifically? As far as I know nothing has changed? If you ever see an ad that's doing something intrusive like pop-ups, sound, or similar they shouldn't be in rotation and we'll remove them as soon as someone notifies us.

This pop up appears everytime I open a page or refresh it, main site and forum.

Ok, Adblock Plus installed, but I moved to Patreon Bronze Supporter, too.

C'mon guys, these ads are sooooo annoying!!!!!
I understand you have to make some money, but why you have to do it like this?
Just came back from work & it shows up on every new screen!!! Meh....
I don't know, but If it will be like this in the future, I won't be spending that much time on the forum anymore!

First time I've seen this on any forum I've been!

I hope it's just a short commercial or something like that...

Oh yeah, that shouldn't be happening. It's not intentional.

It's been flagged for removal. Remember guys, this stuff is always unintentional. Just report it and it'll get fixed.

Yes, it's been flagged as a bad ad by our ad network, and will be out of rotation soon if it's not already.
