VIDEO ADS ????

Hello Rewards Warriors,

 

I didn't encounter any advertisements while watching videos this morningSmiley Surprised

Has anyone else experienced this ground breaking phenomenon? 

Thanks to the powers that be for stopping advertisementsHow to Clap Your Hands | Wikinow

Let me know if you had advertisements prior to video starting or not.

 

Have a Blessed Day,

Happy for you all.  But for me all I have is an ad before almost every video.  Most of the time it is the same ad that I can't skip for 15 seconds.  I am so tired of this ad.  I have had it since the beginning.  I don't think I can stand listening to it one more time !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh yes, the ads are back with a vengeance!

 

@shamit 

I too get the same ad multiple times and can skip it after 5 seconds.  I wonder why you have to wait for 15 seconds.  The ad I get time after time is for a local fitness club/gym.  And, it drives me nuts!

 

Take care,

andrewtoo:  Mine is a different ad.  It is a travel ad for a nearby county. I guess they target the ads to where you live.  Your lucky you can skip after 5 seconds.

Hello @shamit 

The day I created the post "VIDEO ADS????"  was the first day that I don't see any advertisements at all.  Before that I saw numerous different advertisements on each video, never the same advertisement.  That's strange that you only have the (1) ad for all videos!Smiley Frustrated

The day after my post I saw about (2) advertisements but the "Skip Ad" button had been removed and you have no choice now.

I think Management is working there way around to removing the "Skip Ad" button from the video advertisements.  I had (3) videos today with no "Skip Ad" button.

Only encountered (1) day without video advertisements, and they seems to be coming back without option to skip.  They may be working there way thru the member accounts, not sure.

 

Have a Blessed Day,

Marylin
