Update February 02, 2024: Adobe ads, ad categories, and HAR files

  1. We've confirmed that all Adobe ads have been blocked from the Flight Rising website; they will remain off until the freezing issue is fixed.
  2. We've confirmed that the ad category for Flight Rising is child-friendly; this means any inappropriate ads that show up have been miscategorized or mislabeled by the advertiser.
  3. We've confirmed that HAR files are extremely helpful in tracking down and removing bad ads.


We hope this information helps to set your mind at ease about allowing ads, and with taking the steps needed to report bad ads. Thank you!

Decided to turn off my adblocker upon hearing the good news! Immediately got served this. [emoji=guardian deadpan size=1] https://imgur.com/a/fyPwVOY I don't think an ad promoting a concealed carry organization is child-friendly... Had trouble finding the information so this is all I could provide.

The irony is delicious. But on a more serious note, that is hopefully the tail end of what was already on the network before the Adobe ads were shut off. We were told they were off while the problem is addressed.

Out of curiosity: I've gotten ads in the past about organizations that are local to my tiny college town (Things like ads for local retirement homes or local doctors). Are location-specific ads allowed here? I don't mind getting them, but with how careful you guys are about ads I figure it's worth checking

Will Adobe ads be banned in general given their support of AI and mismanagement of proper labelling for it?

Which is out of curiosity in general sobs no finger pointing or anything

@SkykidNadir Aequorin mentioned on a previous message that "Google ads are on the network and they will be served from time to time." I assume that's why you're getting some personalized/localized ads.

Testing, testing...
Gosh, I am glad to learn it wasn't just me. I thought it was Artifacture freezing my computer.

I am, however, still getting Adobe ads. I just got one.
