I understand perfectly well that the site needs revenue to survive and to continue to provide us with a platform, however, sometime ago we were given a choice, if we acquired enough points we could avoid seeing adds while using the site, without the necessity to lower protection from advertising from other sites we might visit simultaneously to Buzz.

I chose to acquire the necessary number of points and to continue to support the site with donations, I have kept my end of the bargain. If this is just another temporary glitch until things are worked out so be it, but if it is the future I see only a choice between discontinuing to donate, and let advertising revenue fill the void, or to stop using the site altogether, especially as we were given no prior advise that this would happen.

I hate advertising, plus turning of my "firewalls" to give access to Buzz, as I have said leaves me vulnerable in other areas. And yes, I could whitelist Buzz, but that would still mean ads, I hate ads, besides I don't think any of those 23 year old Russian beauties would have me., so advice is sought, on the "Block AdBlocker", not the girls.



KayGee you do not need to disable adblock on other sites you are visiting concurrently all you need is to white list adblock so that it does not work on Buzz pages, but keeps working on your other sites visited.

And once on Buzz if you do not like to see these ravishing creatures you can opt to join the 10k club and be advert free.

I understand that some members are upset but then again I trust Mila to do the best she can to keep Buzz running.
And so far all the members who have white listed Buzz 50 have no problem.

I have 3 questions.
1. if this popup being seen by everyone?
2. if it's not have I got a problem with my laptop?
3. I always understood having 10,000 buzzer points meant automatic removal of ads, has this been removed?

Any help will be gratefully received.


1 Yes
3 10,000 buzzer points does mean removal of ads.......But you must hide the adverts in your profile settings :)
But as there is a few glitches on site it is not working at the moment even with Ads hidden. The techie guys are on the case and hopefully get it sorted soon :)

Just make an exclusion in AdBlock as below and you will not get the pop up again on Buzz but if you don't have 10,000 Buzz points you will still get the Ad's :)



Thanks Sharkey this has been very helpful to some members.smile.png

How to set up your Adblock so you make an exception for B50 just follow these instructions and once done
soon as you Get to B50 sign in page Adblock will close but if you go to ANY other page by opening another window while on B50 for example Google images AdBlock will kick back in so there is no need what so ever to touch your Adblock settings again,
Anyone who can not get this to work needs to update to the latest AdBlock for what ever browser your using.
I always get mine from Google play because there are some snide ones out there :angry:

1 Click Adblock on browser bar

2 click options

3 click customise on top bar

4 click on Show ads on a web page or domain

5 you will see The domain or url where AdBlock shouldn't block anything

Type in the box below www.buzz50.com then ok it.

6 Manually edit your filters click edit and you will see this below. Job done :)
