Congratulations, you've won!

Okay seriously something has to be done about the new add which constantly loops "congratulations you've won" until you leave the page. I'm sick of having to turn off my sound to get rid of this thing.

This isn't the first time this site has had ads which start automatically at the bottom of a page seemingly at random, which forces me to search my tabs for mute button.

I can ignore the obnoxious flashing and videos, but can something be done about controlling the type of adverts which are placed on this website? I know we get to use it for free and these probably pay more, but it's killing my enjoyment of the site having to mute my computer because the sound on the advert can't be turned off easily.

My thoughts

I agree! They randomly start playing and it's really annoying

One more thing, everytime I post I always have to enter a verification code. Does anyone else go through the same process? It's really annoying...

So I Didn't Win?

Very clever, omphalos. Draw us in under false pretenses and make us look like idiots when we discover in was all a ruse. However, I don't live in Australia, and April Fools Day doesn't hit the USA for another week (except in Alaska, but I think they're still in 2011). So as you sit behind your computer screen eating pizza-flavored Pringles and laughing at my folly, I laugh equally as hard at you, the boy who doesn't understand the simple math of the world's time-zones.

I'll think twice before entering any of your topics again, you cunning deceptor.
