    We have no control over what ads are shown on the site, all I can recommend is getting an Ad Blocker or something similar then they will annoy you no more

    I passed on the complaint, with a bit of luck word will get through to the advert people and we won't get ones with sound again...

    I think most users will have Firefox with Adblock and Filterset.G Updater so won't notice there's any there.

    I guess ads are what earns Evo-Web money to pay for hosting etc. so maybe some people don't like to block them.

    The ads are purely for the hosting, we don't earn from them as such.

    Does the ad have to reappear every time the screen is refreshed? Why doesn't it just run once for every visit to the site?

    I've had assurances that no ads with sound will appear again, feel free to let me know if this isn't the case.

    I love the five Pro Evo 6 boxes that have just magically appeared, looking over the forums like Gods... *Cough*

    Ah well, I'd much rather the adverts were for Pro Evo and raised money for Seabass to add lower leagues than adverts for magazines and viagra.

    Unfortunately now FIFA have gone down the "People only want to play with the top teams" road I can't see Pondtrout being too bothered about adding lower league teams... He always struck me as a Soccer fan anyway.... I think we need a Team outside of EA and Konami of proper football fans to sit down Rip Konami's game play off and produce a fully customisable and patchable game.....The big titles are all about sales and marketing now!!

    Good win for you guys lastnight I hope were going to be aable to dint Swindons fantastic start!!

    They're just replacing the ones that were there for WE10/PES5. Any money raised only goes towards my "review copies."

    Still chasing this up with the hosts at the minute, sorry for the wait but I've given them all the info they need to make sure the ads with sound don't crop up.

    Still, I'm glad it now appears on the box ad at the bottom instead of just the banner at the top. Awesome.

    I've only noticed it on the box ad recently so that's gone from the forums for now. Please keep me up to date with any sightings.
