Same, this is absolute bs. Is anyone really surprised though? Top men dont give a shit and never have, got to find new revenue streams because this place is dead.

 

That is exactly what happened here: They tried to introduce an auto video player so they could get ad revenue from it.

When there were initial complaints, they hid the player rather than shut it down and lose their ad space.


And who wants to bet the advertisers aren't informed that their ads were hidden?

As much as I like to bitch I doubt any of that is true.

In my experience problems here aren't nefarious in nature, just neglegence.

Can you explain why an advertiser would pay to put an advertisment on your device that you can't see.

No idea. But they always seem to find the shittiest ad companies. Always.

There's a reason to always pass on The lowest bidder.

 

My gut says just not paying attention to or understanding their product.

Just checked my data and yup, I'm way over my limit.

 

Now I'm actually fucking pissed. I start a road trip sat morning so I'll be burning even more.

We all need to post our extra charges when we get our bills. I've never, not even once gone over.

Jeeze. Just checked wifi usage. It's #1 at 13.5gb. at least it's wifi. #2 on data (#1 streaming music) which is crazy high as I'm rarely using the app outside wifi.

I have unlimited but it is easily the #1 app draining shit on my phone and I spend a decent amount of time looking at videos and pics on other apps. You would think a mostly text forum wouldn't do that. I also OG from a computer 80% of the time.

the code to the video is still in the browser version of the site.

i have it blocked, so i dont have any auto play issues, BUT it FREEZES my browser every click. and it freezes all tab, so i cant check anything else while i wait.

Ill say this... The members of this forum really do love this place. They want it to work so bad and give it so many chances. Look at poiupoiu, he had to buy more data because of place multiple times and still kept coming back to it. This place really is different than others and yall are all some special motherfuckers. Good special and retarded special.

I Noticed my headphone icon kept popping up while OG'ing and didn't think much of it until I checked my data after reading this thread.  It's through the roof.

This site is consistently pulling shady shit.  Fuck you Kirik, Jason and all your top men.  I'm out, will get my mma forum fix elsewhere.

Yep posted this in the “what’s wrong with OG thread.

 

I pretty much can’t browse the OG unless at home on wifi. Uses a couple hundred mbs per page. No gifs or vids or anything just a basic page of text and it’s a couple hundred mbs.

Is this on iPhone? I use the app on Android and it doesn't show up on the list of battery using apps. Maybe way at the bottom. Also, I have Verizon unlimited- the real unlimited, a grandfathered old school plan that does not get speed throttled and has no limit ( the current "unlimited" plans are not actually unlimited. They have a cap of a mere 20 -30 gigs. ) So I don't give a shitz about so called data usage. : P

Is anyone really surprised by this after the MentaL debacle a couple of years ago?

 

The coders who work on this site suck, and have always sucked.
