Slickdeals Giveaway Box Being Filtered

Postby Deity » Thu Oct 27, 2011 3:30 am

Hi,

I noticed that with Ad Muncher on, the Giveaway Box on Slickdeals is being filtered. Is there anyway to make Ad Muncher show that box without disabling filtering on the page entirely?

The following is a screen-shot (link is included in the address bar):

I am using Opera 10.52.
- No Opera Extensions are installed.
- Option to allow Ad Muncher to add some options to the browser's right-click menu were NOT installed.

I am using Ad Muncher v4.93 Beta Build 32869/3725.
- I have a premium subscription.
- The filters were left at the default (no custom filters in "My Filters") and should be the latest version (11710 filters).

If you need more information, please let me know and I'll be glad to provide it.

By the way, I noticed that my advert list hasn't updated since Oct. 24, 2011. Is this normal?

Thanks.

Please forget the question about not receiving updates to the filter list.

For anyone wondering the same thing, it seems like you must use the beta builds for the daily advert list updates (at least in the mean time):

A pet peeve of mine is when the report doesn't include a clickable link. ;p

As for the missing item, I removed it on purpose. I considered it an ad worth removing.

Add this custom entry and let me know if I should all it back for everyone...


Don't match against keyword:
<div id="global_feature" version=
That's not an ad blocker... THIS is an ad blocker.

My first popup stopper blocked too much.
My second popup stopper didn't block enough.
Ad Muncher was juuuuust right.

Ah, sorry about the link. I'll keep that in mind the next time I make a report.

As for the box, I can see why you would consider it an ad. In fact, you are most probably right because I just noticed that the box is actually tied to a bar that shows some sort of advertisement.

Screenshot illustrating what is tied to the box:

I think that you should keep the filter on by default; as long as there is an option to show it for those who want to (which you have provided), I think everything should be fine.

Thanks for your quick response.
