Upgrading of advertising networks (revisited)


Please be informed that we will be performing an upgrade and testing of our existing advertising network with a view to replace and reduce the amount of non-performing/irritating ads on our website.

During this process, our website may appear broken while  some inappropriate advertisements may appear while we setup the ad filters for the website. The entire process may take a few days to complete.

Do kindly help to report any inappropriate or irritating ads by following up in this thread. For example, ads that cannot be closed.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused and thank you for your understanding and support.

  • Sorry about the very irritating and ugly in-article ads that have been appearing since yesterday. It is very intrusive and has been disabled.

    If you are still seeing such ads IN an article, please follow up and let me know.

    Thank you.

  • Some readers I contacted have confirmed that the irritating in-article ads have been removed as of 24th April. I have also cleared both the website and CDN cache.

    If you are still seeing these ads, please clear your browser’s cache and refresh. If you do not know how, the cache settings for TRE will force the browser to automatically clear and refresh the cache in about 8 hours, i.e. 8am @ 25th April.

    Again, so sorry about that, my bad.

  • P/s Restore Latest Comments:

    The latest comments section is missing. Some readers may want to comment on earlier articles. Difficult to look for latest comments. Thanks.

    Tech: Ah, will restore that. Thank you.

  • I believe I have removed the bloody irritating interstitial and Google’s vignette ads.

    Please clear your browser’s cache and report if you are seeing them again after having cleared the cache.

    Thank you.

    My anti-virus is going wild every time I visit this site, logging multiple attacks on my machine. Ouch!

    TRE and Shopee will be losing business if these ads are not stopped
    Fake alert ads—very irritating, very poor taste.

  • @Shopee losing Business

    We have asked the advertising net work to blacklist Shopee from our website, including the irritating “alert” ads and popups that cannot be closed.

    They have replied that they have implemented the changes, pertaining to Shopee and the popups that forces redirects:

    I checked, and it seems like some dishonest advertisers have linked redirecting campaigns to your account. It is prohibited here, and we will take the necessary actions to prevent this from happening to other publishers.

    Could you please check ads again in 10-15 minutes? I have filtered out some advertisers that may have been causing this, and it should have helped.
    If the issue persists, please let us know.

    What happened is that the advertisers added a few cats of ads and all the sites on the network were turned on, without allowing us to choose manually, hence the sudden influx of irritating and unwanted ads. So sorry about that.

    It has always been our practice to not allow our website to be like a christmas tree, and so despite the higher-paying interstitials and viginette ads, we havew not implemented those, including any popus and any in-article ads, etc like other sites, including the fill-page ads implemented by most MSMs.

    We strive to keep our ads to where we want them to be to make reading our website easier, and that means lower revenue for us.
