I created this thread just so we could discuss the advertisements on the Kidzworld website. They are absolutely out of control. Pop-up video ads, loud audio ads, slow flash ads, banner ads that cover up the whole page, it's just a nightmare. My laptop is running many things in the background, and it's from 2009. AdBlock clears the ads but often the page crashes. I am usually on the move so I don't have much access to my wonderfully fast iMac, so I try my best on a budget. PLEASE reduce these ads, they're crazy. In Nov. 2013, 3 years ago (almost 4) when I joined, the ads weren't so bad. Maybe one little ad on the side. Now... a whole another story. Some of the ads are inappropriate (especially for a kids site) and others won't stop moving, flashing or making noise unless I close the tab.

Exactly. Most of the ads are inappropriate, and when I'm on my Windows 10, it's CRAZY. I was hoping someone would speak out against it, and I wasn't the only one getting them.

I had spoken to Jordan about an inappropriate ad, she said to report it, but they keep on showing. When on laptop, it's AdzWorld.

Exactly! I also use Windows 10. A few times I was told that it's adware on my computer, not the website. Well, I reinstall Windows once a month. And, I have expensive antivirus software (my uncle works for Norton) installed as well.

If you see an inappropriate ad could you please screen shot and send it to me as we have very strict guidelines. Also any pop ups run by us would be once per session. So that sounds like a malware issue.

Happy to try and solve this for you and make your experience better.

Send me a comment also with any more info.

Thanks

I can't see many ads. Most of them are for games but they're either on top of the side or in the sidebar.
It's fine, since I can just scroll down. Which ad you'll get depends on your search history?
Or not?

Wake up to do things, then go to bed.

Okay, I will. And it happens at least twice per session and they have a blue border just like the rest of the site. And like I said my computer is clean - there is nothing but Chrome, Firefox, Adobe, Visual Studio, Unity and XoJo on my PC.

I keep getting Oracle ad's. Everytime. Like goddamn it Kidzworld, quit torturing me already.

It is a capital mistake to theorize in advance of the facts. Insensibly one begins to twist facts to suit theories, instead of theories to suit facts.
