Sorry about the weird-behaving ad

March 23, 2012

Some of you guys are experiencing a T-Mobile ad that's hovering in the middle of the page, where it's not supposed to be. There's a problem with the ad and we're not sure why it's displaying like that, but if you're getting it, just hit refresh. The ad goes away and we get one more page view. It's a win win situation. Plus every time you look at the site my muscles get a little bit bigger, so really it's win win win.

  • Definitely doesn't go away with a refresh.

    Adconion should have a hotline you can call... Just saying.

    I don't refresh. I click the source link and forget Geekologie altogether.

    Also, there are "sponsored posts" now too? Anticlown media sucks. Hard.

  • probably the new ownership of the site....  seems like every week you guys F*** something up.

    The reason the Ad is being displayed in the middle of the page is because there is an inline CSS style telling it to be there. Its overriding your dark.css file.

    This is the inline code that is placing the Ad in the middle of the screen.
    style=" left: -200px; top: 0px; position: absolute; z-index: 1000000;"

    If you use your browers developer tools " F12 in IE" you can play with the CSS settings on a live site. If you change the -200px you can move the Ad around.

    Does this mean I get to play with your Bucky Balls GW?

  • What ad? I'm still partially blind from that solar flare of a white background you tried to kill me with!

  • Andrew Harrell

    you've been apologizing more than netflix lately, only I'll never break up with youuuu <3

  • LOL, its called Adblock plus people

  •  At least the ad isn't some ugly dude's face, amiright!?  Could be worse than the T-mobile girl getting in my face.

  • I couldn't even read this post because the T-Mobile ad covered most of it.

  • WhatAaaaaaaaaaaads?! Adblock, and problem solved.

  • Am I the only one who feels like the ad was going to eventually try to cover the page?

  • JeffreySpur

    "muscles"... sure...

  • AdblockPlus and GW doesn't get his money for hookers.

  • dd Whee

  • It's okay, we still love you.
