Hi All,

Initially I thought they are just on the right side, so big deal, it ok. Then they are on the left, and before you can think they are at the top bottom of the page as well.

I was like WT@#$%. Now recently I notices they have induced ads inside the posts as well, I mean seriously!!!!.

Yes ok ads have to be there as they are the major means to earn, they are the sponsors. but thinkdigit has taken it to extremes, and the most latest that broke all my patience is the junglee.com pop ad that come on top of every page of think digit as many time you refresh or visit the page......so irritating!!!!:-x:-x

I seriously think, they should cut down the number and level of ads they have induced in every god damm place there is on the forum pages. It make the over all experience very very irritarting plus pages takes forever to load.

My experience on think digit forums has gone down from poor to worse coz of these everywhere ads.

Just thought to share my experience ..

Regards
Sammy

Ads are/were never meant for registered members.

Select 6.5/neo tdf members theme from usercp, save, and you won't face them, ever. At least I haven't. :)

Changing from the bottom of the page will work only for current session, therefore one has to change it from usercp > general settings, save, to make it work every time.

wowo .... thanks what a relief, I guess the default theme for members should be "NEO TDF Members" and not Guests .... but anyway thanks for point this out, changed to members theme and its much better now.:)

ALso a bit off topic, the HTML tags are not working in my sig, anything I am missing again .. ??

Yes did that, but shouldn't this be the default theme for members .... instead of manually changing the same.

Lol sam9s. Looks like you took a long break from TDF. :p

The topic of this thread "Whats up with the ads" made me to imagine, "WhatsApp" got the ads (after being acquired by FB :rofl:)

Anyway, yes no ads for registered members. And HTML from siggys were disabled since two months now, to curb the use of IMG tags. I guess they are working on it to get it fixed soon. Hoping for the best.

Not a long break as such, but yes I did not notice when did the ads start coming, (till the time it really start becoming irritating) since I never changed the theme and there were no ads initially. (I am a registered member since like 9 years .. :)) .... As I said the Member Theme should be default for the members who log in

Go to Settings/User CP and save it as your default skin.

It will become default for you on every device.

and the jabong ad in photos is really pissing me off, why do you gotta be such an ad-whore? isnt the money you get from existing ads enough?
idk why but i still see the jabong ad in 6.5, what am i doing wrong? or is it supposed to be there?
also there was this "mobile deals" sh!t which was really cheap too..
