PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE --Try to get Topix to STOP imposing those stupid sports spots with sound on us!!!

When I am on Topix, I like to have some music in the background. Then suddenly the sound from the STUPID football game comes bellowing at me!! Not all of us are sports fans, and we don't want to hear it!!!

You can click on the stop button, but they come right back within five minutes.

Nothing has ever made me want to leave Topix but this does!!!

Please, STOP STOP STOP!!!!

Stick the earphone jack into the computer to stop the sound coming from it - then turn on your stereo instead.
We should not have to do that. I like to hear something from youtube while I am on Topix.

They have no right to continually impose those loud obnoxious ads and football games on us!!!!!

There should be a law.

I love Topix, but they are OFF BASE with this!!!!

Topix is a choice, not a requirement. They have the right to make money any way they wish.
Vote with your clicks. When they start losing money, they'll change. Until then, stop whining.

What do you mean when you say "vote with your clicks"?

I think the more vocal we are about our objection, the better.

Sports + music = sometimes annoying combination, especially here @ Topix.

Click somewhere besides Topix.

You think wrong.
The more vocal you are, the more clicks you make, the more revenue Topix makes.
As long as you're pissed and making them money, what is their motivation for changing anything?

Just disable the plugins, for Pete's sake! Or install adblock.

Is there a way to turn them off completely?
Hiya Trish

Yes, you can turn off the flash ads.

I'm not sure those are considered ads. They are like a little "bonus" they think they are giving us.

If depends on what browser you are using. Probably the easiest way is to an extension like Adblock. I like that one because you can turn them off on one site and leave others unaffected.

OK. Listen up people. This simple.
1). If you don't like the "sound" adverts (who does?) then shut off the sound on the computer.
2). If you MUST have music then shut off the computer sound and turn on the stereo instead.
3). If you MUST have music from YouTube then shut off the sound from the computer, download YouTube music onto a CD and play it from your stereo.
4). If you're still dissatisfied with Topix then buggar off.
5). If you're dissatisfied with life then shoot yourself.
There is nothing wrong with complaining to Topix about an issue that bothers us.

I like to have a youtube documentary or something like that playing in the background when I am on the topix forums. I don't want to have to put it on cd, etc.

If you don't like my posts or our posts, or whatever, then take some of your own advice and skip over them.
