New ad service?

I know ads are important to help support this great forum. Every time I click on a page, I see things, names, flash by in the little box at the bottom of the screen as things load on the screen. Most I can't read, (I can't speed read) but some like something "double click" or "Google" something are programs that select ads to display based on what the viewer is interested in (or supposed to want). The forum page goes ahead and loads and I can start reading before the ads are all loaded.

Recently, anytime I join the forum or change topics within the forum, the screen clears and I get a notice at the bottom "Connected to optimized - by.rubiconproject.com". This sounded neat on a Jeep site. but quickly got old - staring at a blank screen for a minute and a half (second hand on watch) every topic change. Page changes within a topic occurred at regular speed, but I tend to fall asleep if changing topics.

Looked up Rubicon Project and they probably don't even know that a Rubicon is a model of Jeep. They are a growing ad pusher. But is this program working right? Why must the user wait while they do their "optimizing"? The ads don't seem to appear before the forum, but delay anything from happening while they are mining for information. This sure limits the number of time I check the Build Status for updates. I have enough trouble waiting for a Jeep without an added wait for the website.

Re: New ad service?

Try going to UserCP in the menu bar, then edit option. The last two items allow you to toggle ads on and off.

Re: New ad service?

I can't believe it! This has been bothering me most of the week and by the time I compose a post about it, the problem is gone. When I clicked "preview" and handed the computer to the wife, she even asked when she would get to see something as the "rubiconproject" was showing at the bottom. You guys are good!

Re: New ad service?

Seems funny but this was associated with this web site. Other forms and web sites did not do this so if it was a cookie, I got it here. The slow load did return but I applied "bill de's idea" and never had the slow down again.
The web said that "Rubicon project" was an ad group for the web and even without knowing much about computers and the web, the slowdown did not seem "right". Sometime, we with slow connections see things not noticed with high speed connections.
This site rocks and someone always has the answer.
