Animated : Yes / No

    How are the guys at MSE know about this feedback? There is currently no way to provide that feedback back to them. I applaud your idea of gathering the adds here, but we should also contemplate how is this feedback going to be useful. Browsing a bit I found this post which is requesting such feature to be able to submit feedback from ads:Please give us an easy way to flag inappropriate ads – DarkCygnus Sep 17 '19 at 21:45
  • Several bad ads are recorded on the original post too. – Monica Cellio Sep 17 '19 at 22:52
  • @MonicaCellio, There is a lots of report on the SE question. But I feel like good site like Workplace should have their own report. I do update my answer on The main question too. – null Sep 18 '19 at 6:47
  • At the risk of sounding like I don't appreciate your initiative, I have found the sad truth to be that the vast majority of adds are animated. I just went and page-refreshed a bunch of questions and saw 8 adds. All 8 of them were animated. If "no animation" is one of the criteria for this trial, it's failure should be so obvious that we (users) don't need to put effort into reporting it. – dwizum Sep 18 '19 at 15:15
  • @dwizum, My initiative is simple. Let people from XYZ Site that there is NSFW or inapropriate ads on their site. Most users brose with adblock and don't even know that we were testing add.The "tag" animated and Nsfw is just there because thats what I remember from reading answers on the main question. – null Sep 18 '19 at 15:26
  • @null I meant the original meta post here on Workplace. I just edited my answer there last week to add a new sighting of a bad ad. That's the post I meant, sorry. – Monica Cellio Sep 18 '19 at 17:55

    Somebody reported one of our inappropriate ads directly on main meta and it got a response within hours saying that ad would be taken down. Looks like that's the place to get attention and not here at all, whether on this post or the original. Thanks for bringing this up here (I definitely agree that ad is NSFW); might need to post there? – Monica Cellio Sep 19 '19 at 23:15
  • @MonicaCellio, I also got the same answer from the same staff 7 days ago. And it was on a site meta. But the ads are still here. I guess it's the 6-9 weeks or the lake of twitter. Edit: Weight lost ads are gone, in my daily few click with out adblock routine. – null Sep 23 '19 at 11:42
