Default New Advertising System

Hi all!

We'll be moving to a completely new advertising solution in the coming weeks, which we're really excited about. Our new advertising partner is working with many of the top entertainment sites online and this partnership will ensure that our focus can continue to be on making Blu-ray.com the best that it can be without the distraction of handling advertising inquiries, ad servers, programmatic ads and related things.

This also means that the current ads and ad settings will be reset and we'll be starting from scratch, so if you don't like ads in general or feel that you want to support the site in some other way then you can simply go to the Settings page and disable the advertising from there. In the future we'll be adding more options for supporting the site, but everything helps.

Thanks

I disabled the ads because I find them intrusive. Earlier I used to make sure to order through BR.com links on Amazon UK, but from March 2020, AmzUK has effectively stopped all shipping to India where I live.

Now, most of my orders not made on label websites are from Zavvi. It would be nice if you could more consistently have Zavvi links also so I can support you.

I noticed that some of the ads don't have prices for the items, I think if it's somewhere like HMV, then it would be beneficial for those seeing the ads to see a price with the items themselves.

It would be useful if you could control ads by device. Iíd go for seeing ads on a desktop browser if it helps the site out financially. The problem is when Iím browsing on an iPad or phone, they take up too much valuable screen real estate, so Iíve turned them off.

If it counts for anything, Iíd fully support an optional subscription/donation model for contribution. I can remember my desperation when the blu-ray.com had the extended outage a few months back

I turned the ads off. Too intrusive when I do all my browsing on a phone. I do buy a lot of stuff from the Amazon links here.

These are really intrusive! They are popping up everywhere. Not just at the top and bottom of pages, but inbetween posts. The home page even froze up until an ad decided to slide away.

If I can't get rid of it, I won't be casually browsing quite as much as I have been because it's damaging to the ease of use.

I'd much rather a "site patron" type subscription model with little perks. Like no bleeding ads everywhere.

You know there's an option to turn them off in settings, right?

So do you have to know the secret handshake or something for someone on here to actually tell the rest of us how to do that??

In Firefox, the setting (Settings, Security & Privacy, Permissions, Autoplay) does NOT work.

Ah, site preferences for the site itself, not via browser settings.

Weird that in Firefox telling it to turn autoplay off doesn't work - the developer must be using Javascript or something.

Yeah Idk how devs could be excited about that level of intrusive advertising its not just side/ bottom its bottom and off in the corner with a count down to remove, and the bottom advertisement isn't just the whole bottom it also blurs out reading, both require interaction to view threads...

I could see that directly impacting new signups and readers who just stop by that might join... I went out of my way to find this thread to see if there was a way to stop it, never seen an add setup where taking up 30%+ of the screen was a good thing lol

How? I've been through everything that I know of and never found the option. I ended up switching the forum style to Classic, but I shouldn't have to do that to get rid of the ads.

The ads on this page have become COMPLETELY Obnoxious... it has hands down become, one of the most irritating web pages I regularly visit... Wildely intrusive, and distracting. I want to support for as much as I use the page, but had to turn them off.

Had to look three times before I found the settings for unrelated ads that pop up now.
Would have been nice if the knowitalls could have mentioned that instead of the sarcasm.

I thought I was losing my mind, suddenly seeing ads the past few days. I opted out, but I'd happily support this board in a different way, if such a feature ever becomes available. If I'd ever decide to spend money on a website to help keep it going, this would be the one.
