Appeal to Eliminate Video Ads which Start Playing On Their Own

These are undesireable. We get a 15 minute break at work at the time of our choosing, and when a video starts to play it creates a bad impression even though we are not slacking. We keep the sound UNMUTED to get email notifications. So its easier not to come to the site during the day. The alternative is to install ad-blocking software which will deprive the site of ad revenue

As an aside, self-starting video ads are annoying if you are at home..They delay page loading and are distracting.

As far as I know, you shouldn't be seeing video ads while you are logged into your account.

This has come up a few other times, once fairly recently.

I'm sure @VS-Admin will chime in for assistance.

AdBlock works until they remove the video ads. Don't like to take away revenue for a free site but when it becomes egregious you have to do something.

Hey guys,

I can look into getting those removed for you, at the least I can get them to not auto play, can you just provide me with the URL to the ad(s)?
Thank you guys!

Appreciate it but its probably unnecessary..the problem is that our browsers are set to destroy cookies passwords etc when we close them. So we cant really open the site from a logged in state. Maybe I can whitelist this site in the setting panel if IT dept has not locked up that setting, have to look into that.

Its easier to use my tablet or smart phone in the mean time....
