I played 3 bullet games in a row today, and i got a popup add after each game. Im done playing chess on this site because of these adds. Im sure you figured some people would leave and thats fine, i just hope you made the right decision in terms of increased add revenue vs loss of consumers. These adds are seriously too invasive and you (chess.com) aren't the only chess website on the interwebz, anyone feel the same way?
Well, if you're leaving you may not see this, but, just in case...
No, this isn't the only chess website out there, but, its without question the best, and when you factor in how much you can get without paying, the quality of this site over the others becomes even clearer.
IOW, you aren't going to find this much for free anywhere else. Trust me, I've played on nearly every chess site on the web, chess.com is as good as it gets.
The pop-ups are OUTRAGEOUS!
If you use mozilla firefox you can download adblock plus. It blocks most of the ads in all websites.
any idea if there is a way to block them in IE 9?
sry dont know
Try a better browser?
The post-game popup is incredibly annoying, especially if people do abort on you multiple times in a row. The ads are defacto invisible due to adblock etc. so the popup only serves to slow down the process of starting new game. I hate it.
For regular games I suppose the ads wouldn't be bad. For bullet they are brutal. If anyone can help me find an alternative site that offers free bullet play, please let me know. I do really love this site and all it provides but half the time I can't get that box to go away and it ruins the rematch game(s) since I can't even see the board. As I said in a different topic, I don't care if they plaster the ads everywhere, heck make a border of ads around the chessboard. Just not over top of it every single bullet game. It makes me want to NOT JOIN more than to join.
The popups used to fade on their own after X seconds.
I see they no longer fade away automatically but require user input, an added hardship for us poor, much trodden upon free members.
ps. Oh! And, they're Bigger than the post-game pop-up (game result, no ad) that Premium members experience.
