It seems to be a script error in the ad code. I'm on it... ;)

No longer get the error.

But why does it try to load for us Plus Members every 20-30 seconds?

Everytime the page reloads it lags my firefox for a second or so (and i dont even have to have modaco up as my current tab) its really annoying as you can imagine. I dont know if its just me, but i have the latest FF version.

I can totally understand you putting advertising on a website but when it becomes an annoyance every 20-30 seconds it's a bit excessive, kinda like the Jamster frog adverts...:D

Paul, is there any chance you can change the reload rate or something? how come youve decided to do this anyway? I havent come across any other sites that do it before.

I have sympathy for the IE guys, cos like jlowap said, it "clicks" everytime the page reloads! ;)


PS. I gather from the previous posts that plus members dont have the ads/reload, but not everyone can afford plus obviously ;)

Yeah, the reload rate seems phenomenal. Is there an ideal or set time between page refreshes? Right now there's more time spent getting updates than not. At least it doesn't jump automatically to the top of the page, as some sites do.

It's definitely NOT refreshing that frequently, however I will be changing the way that this works shortly.

:exclaim: I hope you change how the ads work QUICKLY... it's driving me away from your site. When I have 3+ windows open, each viewing a different thread, and each window creating 3 quick bursts of clicks every 30 seconds, the result is an insane amount of clicking! Please make it stop for the love of God! :exclaim:

I know I can disable the click sound in IE, but I want the clicking sound - except when I visit this website. ;)

I forgot to mention that it also breaks the back button. After I've been reading a thread for a minute or two, I end up having to click the back button repeatedly to get back to the forum's list of threads.
