We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).

This discussion was created for logged-in users only, but now has been archived. No new comments can be posted.

Adverts suddenly appearing on slashdot

  • The intent for the advertising opt-out was to reward the people who actively and positively contribute to the site -- accepted submissions and comments that get modded up. The opt-out has always had an expiration period, but we recently bumped that down to 30 days (not sure what it was before that). We're in the process of setting it up so that people who keep contributing can keep opting out, and that should be in and working for everybody by next week. Apologies for leaving you hanging during the interim.
