The times for game intros are creeping up and up. I am experiencing at least 5 seconds prior to ad followed by 30 minuted ad, followed by at least 5 seconds before the game loads. Can we expect a full minute soon.
My other gripe is that the ads appear in the middle of the screen and the game then appears at the top of the screen necessitating an adjustment (more time wasting) before you can start playing. This is fine on a 20 minute game but very frustrating when playing against the clock on shorter length games.

Which ads are you seeing that are 30 seconds in length? What products are they advertising?

Brian.
There is an ad for Listerine mouthwash which runs for 30 seconds. It has popped up when I went to play Tri Peaks Solitaire and it has been seen running on other games as well.

I'm not sure exactly how long it is
but the Best Buy ad is longer than most of the other ads.
And then you get the screen that says "Your game will start......"
then the screen shifts so that you have to readjust it.
That is very aggravating,especially on timed games.
The screen shifting is why I have any game
that has an 'extra' START to click in order to start playing,
set to do just that,...wait,...until I am ready to start playing.
Then at the end of a game you must wait for a screen
to tell you to continue to your game and click those words
before you can do anything.
That's aggravating too.

Brain, within the last 30 minutes I have had "the Best Of Damien Dempsey", "New Renault Clio" "Lego Movie", "Vodafone" and some "Slimming Pills".

Hope this will help you to resolve the problem

I've not seen any of those ads.
Do they all play for 30 seconds or longer?

Yes Connie Lee. These all ran for 30 seconds plus. I think the advertisements are matched to whatever area you are playing in so that possibly explains why we are not seeing the same streaming.

I had not thought of being in different areas that we might see different ads...DUH...I can reach that level at times Smile Smile
Tonight/this morning while I've been playing these are some of the ads that I noticed playing 30 seconds,Dawn,Swiffer and Clearblue.
I'm sure there were probably others as well,but these I paid attention to.

There are definitely moew for 30 seconds than the expected 20 seconds.

I like the ones that are around 15 seconds.
And I would really like it if the one after the game,
that you have to click where it says 'continue to your game',
would disappear completely Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation

I was wondering Brian if you have any answer to my original question?
During the interim there are even more 30 second ads. They are "Bord Na Mona", "Nutella", "You Sjould Know Better" to mention just some. The only ,new 15 second ad is "Calor Gas".
I can honestly say that about 90% are now of 30 second duration.
Is this your new policy or is the situation going to be addressed?

I was asking to see if it was limited to just one ad, or if it was a wide selection of them. We do not personally select the ads that appear, so these are simply the ads that are chosen by our advertisers at this time. We always ask for shorter ads, but there is not always a wide selection available. At this time, we don't plan on changing the ads on our site. Sorry!

Here are a few more that I have seen that are
30 seconds or longer.One of them even stops before the 30 seconds,
but the ad continues to sit there for the rest of the time allotted.
Fabreeze,La Glam,Crest,Hunts and Gain.
