    Phantom Sound

    This has been happening for a while now. It often happens when I go to some thread, any thread, or in my Subscriptions, or even the main page... anywhere the black ad shows up.

    Here's a screenshot of the black ad.

      Spoiler:  


    Anyway, I get snippets of the audio from some advertisement, 5-15 seconds long. The sound clips are usually from different ads. No video ad, not the entire audio from the ad, just snippets.

    It usually doesn't start right away, it can take several seconds to a minute after the page loads.

    It even drowns out embedded YouTube vids.

    Is anyone else having this problem?

    Hello Leggy,if you're using chrome or opera browser I would advice you to add an ad-blocker.But well if you have trouble with that stuff like me > I have my own software that I use its 'Baidu Antivirus',If you install it to your PC it will be automatically on your browser > baidu ad-block.

    REMINDER from your friendly Otome Mod

    I think you should clear your browser cache. It's smart ads so it will read your browser history and show ads to the site that you recently visit. 1 more thing is maybe that ads is targeted to your country so if clear cache doesn't help, try using VPN.
    I'm again using ad block because the site need support from advertising for servers billing. Viewing ads is a way to support your lovely site.

    We're looking into this, but due to real life commitments it may take a while.

    Do you know when those sounds started?

    I started noticing a week or so ago.

    I don't use ad blockers, but I do clear my cache periodically.

    Re: Phantom Sound

    Yes it is. I still get the black ad and the sound clips from some unknown ad.

    It's a nuisance, but doesn't actively interfere with being on the forum, except when it plays over embedded videos.

    Re: Phantom Sound

    I have been actively scanning for such video ads but it seems non existent on my end.

    There could be a custom insertion (from a rouge plugins or software) that does this to you.
