    Default Advertisement Blocking

    I've noticed that sometimes, I get a specific add that blocks my RPG and Store down-scroll menus. It disables my ability to get to things like the uShop, which is usually where I go, or the RPG Main or RPG Store. Quite a bother.
    It's a white add advertising usually quizzes and the like. I was wondering if this was something that is preventable, because I often try to refresh, and the same add is there. It gets rather annoying, because I use a very slow dial-up connection.

    "The Amontillado!" I said.
    "... --yes, the Amontillado... Let us be gone."
    "Yes," I said, "let us be gone."
    "For the love of God, Montresor!"
    "Yes," I said, "for the love of God!"
    But to these words I hearkened in vain for a reply. I grew impatient. I called aloud --
    "Fortunato!"
    No answer. I called again --
    "Fortunato!"
    No answer still... There came forth... only a jingling of the bells.

    I have that, too. When I try to go to the journal index, sometimes the menu doesn't appear because it's being covered up by the advertisement. And you're right, it takes awhile for it to come up. I have a fast connection, and it's still a hassle to keep refreshing over and over again.

    It's not a pop-up. Just an advertisement banner that gets on my nerves very badly. Right now, it's advertising yachts. Can someone explain its reason for advertising yachts on an anime forum? O_o;
    "The Amontillado!" I said.
    "... --yes, the Amontillado... Let us be gone."
    "Yes," I said, "let us be gone."
    "For the love of God, Montresor!"
    "Yes," I said, "for the love of God!"
    But to these words I hearkened in vain for a reply. I grew impatient. I called aloud --

    The reason is fairly simple, those companies pay Animeforum money to have their advertisements displayed, that money is used to keep the servers up, and therefore the site alive. Without those advertisements, there wouldn't be an animeforum.

    As for the banner error, I believe this problem was posted before, and it was concluded that it was a local computer error.

    As Jakiao said...
    It doesn't look like your computer is processing DHTML correctly. Nothing we can do about that.

    Have a good day.

    We have noticed that one banner in specific causes IE and Firefox to incorrectly place the position of the dropdown menu. We need to be able to see this ad for ourselves so that we can remove it from rotation. If you can, take a screen shot of the ad when this happens, and PM me a link to the file.

    Thanks!
