The ones along the top/down the side of the page? Are they ticking? The new "9,724,437,304th visitor to this site" ones. I'm sure it is them, because everytime I change webpages it stops. Has anyone else noticed it?

It's really annoying. I can't listen to my music without cicada-like clicking in the background. Can you guys find a new sponsor or something?

It sounds like a frog to me :lol: They come from the Fiesta ads for me, which looks like some Zelda type game, I think it's meant to be some wildlife sound :tape:

When I heard it first time I was WTF :scared: :lol:

Haven't heard them yet, but ads that make noise are no-go for me.

With any Mozilla browser (like Firefox or Sea Monkey) one can download Adblock (or Adblock Plus for Firefox 3) from http://www.mozdev.org, and block any ad one wants. (Even a whole domain serving them up like yieldmanager or doubleclick, as opposed to having to block them individually).

The golf one drives me absolutely crazy :o If you have ads, OK, but don't use ridiculous sounds. Argh.

Can we finally do something about the annoying Golf "Shot Online" advertisement? I cannot stand the sound any longer and it makes me not wanting to visit TF. :o It only seems to be a problem for europeans, but please do something. :o

could we have a statement from the powers that be? i think this is a major issue and i'm not willing to let go.
my computer is connected to my stereo, so i hear this golf-ad over the speakers. all the time. my colleagues at work always ask what terribly annoying sound this is. like the poster above me, i visit TF less and less because of it.
please please please allow only ads without sound. please.
