Does the current PS3 background ad that takes you to the Sony Youtube Channel when you try to post a reply to anything or negotiate to another part of the forum (as it turns a couple of inches of page borders, including your navigation buttons, into a link to their site) count as spam?  Because it's really bloody annoying.



Completely agree, its really fucking annoying. Whenever the PS3 ad is there you cant click on any links at the top of the forum!


Argh it's doing it again!
Try to click on a topic, it takes you to a PS3 ad.  Try to go elsewhere on the forum, it takes you to a PS3 ad.  At least with the other spammers listed in this thread, you have a choice about whether or not you click on their links...



It's bloody annoying. I can't click on anything when that ad is up there, it's as if there's an invisible 2 inch border on either side of the screen. All the forum headings are affected by it pretty much, as well as the "go to latest post" buttons.

Ta, Keyser - all now gone.

I think we're getting near the stage of suggesting people just don't bother posting in Movie News - find the relevant Future Films thread and just use that instead

handbags are not news and/or hot topics - even at their low low prices

in fact all of allenjackking's posts seem to be pretty much spam

I know this is slightly off topic BUT for some reason my posts are being deleated off the forum; they are not offensive or anything but I wondered if they are being caught up in the whole getting rid of spam posts thing?!?! Little help??

If you look a few threads down you'll see we've said that's exactly what is happening.

To avoid as best as possible DON'T post from the main site but post in the forum, and don't post in reply to a spammer.

Right now I'd suggest just not posting in Movie News at all tbh - the lack of interest might help us get some functionality changes

Hi,

As some of you are probably aware there is currently a poll running in the Small Screen area of the Empire Forums. This will determine our beloved forums Top 100 TV Show Characters Of All Time. The thread can be found here:

http://www.empireonline.com/forum/tm.asp?m=2853333

Please find time to vote, a poll with more votes will generate more accurate results.

The rules for the poll are in the opening post and it would be greatly appriciated if these were followed. Closing date is the end of December so you've still got plenty of time to think about who you'd like to vote for!

If you have already voted or have chosen not to partake then apologies for this PM as I have sent it out to the masses.

Thank You all for your time!

I'm looking forward to finding out the results!

Regards

YFU

I have probably been labelled as a 'spammer' for my first post.
Again, I want to apologise for breaking the rule. Unsure of which one I broke (probably advertising, although I wasn't trying to advertise), but would still like to apologise for it.

Um, is it OK if I ask for help/views? Such as where I could actually post my questionnaire for my CW?

If I'm not, I'll shut up on the academic stuff right now.

I'd like to thank elab49 for pointing it out to me before I got into too much trouble.

Right, thanks for that.

Hmm...so if 'homework' is banned here, I guess it must be banned on other film magazines sites too. That's a pain, but no one said coursework would be a walk in the park.

Q: Does anyone know a site where it would be possible to do this? Where questionnaires have been posted before without trouble?

The rule has its own thread.

You could try other sites, just have a look at their rules first. You might get lucky.
