A little while ago we had an issue with auto-playing adverts.
I had one today but the sound didnt come on - so the picture moved and you had to click the speaker to get the sound.
I don't know if this is the same as the problem we had before, so thought I would post about it anyway.
It was from 'Heinz.co.uk - secret ingridients' campaign. I don't think it was a Google ad as it didnt have the little 'i' circle in the bottom right.
It didnt bother me because there was no sound, but thought I'd raise it as I had never seen this sort of ad before.
Good call. Any adverts that move or do anything strange (except your laundry of course!) usually get a boot as soon as the staff find out.
That said - I'm going to bed then heading off in four hours to have three days in the stix with NO COMPUTER (hell, no real power just a generator.) Can't wait to see my stats when I get back. Three whole days! Oh lordy....

I know we are all here to make some money, but having 10 ads on a page slows down loading time to such an extent that readers just don't have the patience to wait for a page to load. So they click away without...
