I know ads are needed to run the site. However there are several video ads that slow down the site. When I am typing, the video at the moment is running and certain letters and words do not appear. How do I fix this? It took me almost 10 minutes to reply to a thread that was running a video ad for Oak Meadow because I had to add in all the missed letters and words. Thank You.

You might want to look into installing Adblock Plus for the browser you're using. It's free. I don't see any ads on any sites I go to.

I will see what to do with our Tech guy but so far, what neobunny says seems like a good idea.... :/

What I am suggesting may sound extreme, but I do not get ads.

Install Firefox if you have not done so already.

Install adblock plus Tools>Add ons>Get Add Ons

Disable Adobe Flash*: Tools> Add ons> plug ins

Install Greasemonkey Tools>Add ons> Get Add Ons

Install HTML5KISS: Source for "YouTube HTML5 KISS" - Userscripts.org (http://userscripts-mirror.org/scripts/review/154468.html)

I didn't know there were video ads on this site. Now you are every bit as clueless as I am. :D :D :D
