Topic turned out to be a very different than initially what I thought. Read after the line breaking (hr tag) to see the initial discussion I was intending to discuss.

However, I think we found a possible topic to discuss.

Since, this is not google ad or any kind of search engine or ad network provided ad - I think the adBlocker should not block this. Some of the contents in the ad is blocking the graphical contents on those ads. The advertisers need to be aware about it and possibly theymos can identify which part of code is affecting and update the ad requirements.

When adBlocker is active:



When adBlocker is not active:






I just noticed this ad:


First, I thought it's a post then in the next second I realized it's the forum ad space LOL

Forum ad specifications:
Ads are allowed to contain any non-annoying HTML/CSS style. No images, JavaScript, custom fonts, or animation. Ads must appear 3 or fewer lines tall in my browser (Firefox, 900px wide). Ad text may not contain lies, misrepresentation, or inappropriate language. Ads may not link directly to any NSFW page. No ICOs[1], loggable mixers[2], banks, funds, or anything that a person can be said to "invest" in; I may very rarely make exceptions if you convince me that you are ultra legit, but don't count on it. Ads may be rejected for other reasons, and I may remove ads even after they are accepted.

And I see there are nothing wrong with the above ad but too simple :-P
I would say: creativity is at best with extreme simplicity.


Your thoughts?

Edited

I think i've refreshed my page at least a dozen times now, and i can't find said ad. What site is it leading to?

I think the ad you're seeing should actually look like this?

Yeah that's how everyone should expect but in this case the advertiser gone with the very basic (A part of their advertising strategy) in my opinion.

Keep refreshing. It was bitcasino

I'm saying i think it's probably an issue with your browser.

Bitscasino have no text-based ads currently in rotation - https://bitcointalk.org/adrotate.php?adinfo

Okay visiting this link this is what I see:


Which means adblocker is blocking the contents of the add. I have adBlocker installed on my browser.

Now, this means my topic was ruined LOL

However, I think we found a possible topic to discuss.

There are two separate set of requirements for ad designers:

First, there are design requirements that you must meet for your ad to be accepted at all. This is stuff like not using any JavaScript, not having your ad just be one big image, not affecting things outside of the ad area, etc.

Second, there's a much stricter set of requirements that you must follow if you want your ad not to be blockable by (typical) adblockers. This includes: making your ad only out of one <a> and a minimal number of <span>s, using very few distinct CSS classes, and opting into my server-side link redirection. If advertisers choose not to follow this second set of requirements, then their ads could be blocked by adblockers, and it's not my responsibility to deal with this.

Awesome repose bud. My conclusion is that the advertisers are not much aware and to be precised those who are designing their ads in BitcoinTalk they need to see this issue and update their codes.

I may PM those advertisers with my own initiative. They are spending good amount of money after all to be seen by the visitors.

Every time someone wins slots in an ad auction, I send them a PM with all the details. They should be aware.

They should be aware.
I meant, adBlocker blocked the contents that it's not visible currently. Anyway, I left pm to bitcasino.io and nyancatio. They may find it useful.
