Re: Adblock message

How is your ability to use the site been disallowed?

Are you blocking the ads here and getting the popup? Simply allow the ads and you'll be able to use the site.

Re: Adblock message

The way I see it you are the school yard bully

Bully: "Either you give me your lunch money, or I am going to hit you until you give me your lunch money. Therefor it is your fault if I hit you. All you need to do is give me your lunch money and you will not get hit."

Translation: "Either you make sure I get money for you being here, or I will make you unable to be here. Give me money and you can stay."

If you want to make the site "pay to use" that is fine. Right now it is not, and I feel you are using bully tactics to try to force money out of people. There are nice ways to do things and there are mean ways. I feel like you decided to do it the mean way. I think it is an awful attitude and I think it is that lack of respect and bullying that is causing some people to be upset.

I am sure by now you have noticed that, to my knowledge, no other site on the internet is doing this. Most have a small banner or "fake" add regarding ad blockers, but they still value all their users. Have you ever considered why? I think a lot can be learned from that thought.

Re: Adblock message

Yea, look, I'm not going to argue and discuss this topic with each user individually.

You can read the posts in this thread and learn why this is done the way it is.

Either the service is worth something to you to unblock the ads or get Premium - or it is not - in which case you can move to another service, worthy of your time.

Ranting about how I'm the bad guy here and insulting me further is not something I'll tolerate in your future posts.

Ads on Next Episode come from AdSense (Google's advertising platform) and are thoroughly reviewed.

Google huh? I've been searching for a fix for a Windows 7 problem today, via Google but on another computer on my LAN (same external IP). Then I check NE on my usual machine and see ads that I've never seen before for companies offering fixes for almost exactly what I was searching for on the machine I was fixing.

LOL. Like I'm going to trust a company who advertises via banner ads to help me fix Windows 7 update issues!!

Re: Adblock message

Not using Adblock on your site but still getting the nag banner, maybe because I'm using Ghostery?
I don't mind unblocking ads for you but I'm not going to let Google track everything I do.
I just use the site once a day at most but still an annoyance.

Re: Adblock message

Yes, Ghostery blocks the ads as well.

Re: Adblock message

***** **** has suspended your automatic payments. Contact ***** **** for more details or to reactivate your payments.

Whats the deal Santah ?

Re: Adblock message

Check the details in PayPal.

Most likely your card wasn't working at the time it tried to process a payment and the payment was suspended.

Is the card linked to your PayPal in order?

Should be fine.

Re: Adblock message

So then simply re-subscribe?

Re: Adblock message

How long does it take for the paypal payment to go through? I just paid 2 hours ago but still do not see premium status, and seeing ads.

Re: Adblock message

It's instant.

What is your PayPal email so I can investigate?

You can message me directly in here if you don't want to expose that email publicly:

Why?

Maybe because some people visit the site 10+ times a day and the message can have a opposite result in their cases? wink

I am one of those people. I unblocked my adblock, and still am getting the message.  I don't have the other blockers that were mentioned.  Yes, it is having the opposite affect.  I would like to discontinue my account, since I can't get through the message, but I can't because, again, I can't get through the message.

Re: Adblock message

You have something else on your system blocking the ads and triggering the message.

This list, if you really go through it and check out each suggestion - usually is enough to find out what the issue is:

If you don't want to find out what the problem on your system is and want to stop using Next Episode instead - just do that. Your account will automatically be terminated after some period of inactivity.

Cheers!

I too have this same issue.   When I use Waterfox I disable both Ghostery and uBlock Origin and I still get the nag window.
Santah you and I e-mailed each other a few times about this... and I tried to figure out what the issue was, sadly my only way to "fix" the issue was to use a different browser (SRWare Iron) and disable both Ghostery and uBlock Origin on it as well...   and it works fine.

Just sayin, something about your detection is setting off false positives and creates the nag screen regardless.

Thanks for all the great work you do for the site tho.

Re: Adblock message

Is it a false positive though?

Do you see an ad under the popup window?

Do you see ads if you're logged out?

Re: Adblock message

I would like to remove my account, but the adblock popup is impossible to remove. This was a shitty move.

Possibly if you temporarily turn off your adblocking program?

That's the problem, I never had them turned on in the first place because I know you rely on them. Now this site is useless, sorry for the expression. Tried with both edge and chrome and still no success.

Re: Adblock message

Have you gone through this list:

?

Yes indeed I have. I'll just move on, thanks though.

Edit; it started working again, excellent smile

Re: Adblock message

I've had Adblocker running for a long time and I have had next-episode.net whitelisted and not thought much about it.  I started getting the nag about disabling adblock or becoming a member.   I've gone through the list of possible reasons yet I still get the nag.  I get it through either browser I use (Firefox and Chrome).   I can access the site without issue with ADblocker disabled on my laptop.

Difference between my desktop and laptop would be I go through a VPN in the desktop and not on the laptop.  If that can  make a difference? (I can't really shut it off as it cuts off all internet activity if it drops or doesn't connect)

Re: Adblock message

Yes. Some VPNs filter out ads and can be triggering the popup.

Do you see the ads behind the popup? If not - they're blocked by your VPN.

Check out Premium: https://next-episode.net/premium - it'll fix your issue and will give you tons of cool additional features.

Let me know!

Re: Adblock message

If only there were more payment methods i could at least have a chance to go premium if i could afford it at the time.

Re: Adblock message

You could get Lifetime Premium with simply a credit card (also with bitcoin if you want, but you have to get in touch for that) ...
