Anyone else, who is not a paying member of Deviantart is getting annoyed by certain ads that you just can't block?

I am.

Not gonna stick around here for too long if it keeps being this way, right now there are a lot of other sites worth of using to showcase one's works. And they're not so annoying to watch.

Take care!

I definitely don't dig the advertising for sure.

My first year I was a paying member, and I miss being ad free and a few other features. I just couldn't afford the renewal at the time. Now I could, but I've gotten used to ignoring it. That said, I'm not as heavy of a dA user anymore. Coincidence?

I have purchased a smugmug account. Expensive, but the shots just look so nice! While there is a place for comments, I'm unsure if there's a way to develop a community like there is here on dA (though I swear it's not as active as it was a year ago lol, and I feel old when I'm here :P)

As long as I'm not paying for my acct, I don't think I have much right to complain about the ads. It was when they started putting some in despite the paid aspect that I got a little cross about.

I am indeed growing more annoyed about the ads. There's nothing like sitting in silence to be startled with some video ad playing on dA while I'm working in a different tab of my browser..


How are you doing?

I don't mind the ads, I understand it's something they need to maintain the website. But I would like them to be less intrusive, I don't like having to battle through them while browsing.

It will only lead to me, and I'm guessing many more, leaving dA and look for other things.
