Merry Christmas!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s Christmas!  It’s Christmas! Santa’s here!!! Woo-hoo!!!

You may notice things a little quiet around here today (you can always find the latest on the Christmas Update here), as the Addicts celebrate Christmas by tearing open packages, over indulging on Christmas cookies…oh and I guess spending time with our families too! 😉 (personally I was up until way to late last night assembling a roller coaster and a million other toys…so I’m hoping for a Christmas nap at some point!)

Short Story Long… We are pre-occupied today and hope YOU are too. I think all of us need a day to step away and just relax, unwind, and enjoy those around us. So you won’t see much going on here. Your comments will likely sit in moderation for a bit. Pretty much it is going to be a quiet day on the Addicts sites while we….BRACE YOURSELVES…take a day off. SHOCKING I KNOW!!!

No worries, we promise all won’t be lost in a day. We always have our eyes and ears open. Even if you do not see or hear from us, does not mean we aren’t watching out for you. We will return after the holiday with any changes and more info about the Christmas Event.  So for today….ENJOY THE SILENCE!

Well that’s it from us.  But we want to take a moment to wish you and your families a VERY Merry Christmas!  Have a great day everyone and be safe!

Merry Christmas from the Addicts

Now feel free to share your own thoughts and memories in the comments below. You know we LOVE to hear from you and it will be something great to come back to after the Holiday. So feel free to comment away. 😉

P.S. If you want to see how Riley (aka the Tiny Addict) spent Christmas Eve and today..check out instagram. 🙂

Happy Turkey Day!

Hey Howdy Hey Turkey Tappers!

It’s finally Turkey Day here in the US!  And you know what that means…Turkey, Mashed Potatoes, Apple and Pumpkin pie, football, stretchy pants and insane sales at the mall! (or in my case, for those who listened Episode 19 of Addicts Live, Mashed Potatoes, and Bread…check out Episode 19 to see how we all celebrate(d) Thanksgiving!))

Oh and a special Shoutout to my Mom and Dad who are celebrating their 38th Wedding Anniversary today.  Despite what EA says, the Magic is very much alive in their marriage! 

You may notice things a little quiet around here today (you can always check out the details of the Thanksgiving Mini Event here) as we take the day to celebrate the holiday with our families.  Although…..Super Safi will likely be lurking around the comments, as Canadians celebrated Thanksgiving last month.  So like a lot of you, Safi will be working today too!

And yes, the mystery boxes hit today.   We’ll have breakdowns for each box,  like we always do.  But be patient.  No rush to get everything, it’s not going anywhere today.

However, we couldn’t let a day dedicated to being thankful go by without a special THANK YOU to YOU…our AMAZING readers!  We are so thankful for each and every one of you that take the time to read our posts and comment.  So from Patric, Wookiee, Safi and myself…THANK YOU!!  You guys rock and we couldn’t do this without you!

Here at Addicts we’ve all been blessed in so many ways and we hope you have too. In that spirit we’d like to invite you to take a moment and let us know in the comments below what you’re thankful for this Thanksgiving! We can’t wait to see what you say!

Well, before we start to carve into the Turkey (or Bunducken) we’d like to take just one more moment of your time. As I mentioned above, today’s a day to reflect on all you’re thankful for in life & in that spirit, if you can, as we do each year we’d like to invite you to donate to a charity that’s near and dear to our hearts, Friends of Buyijja.  A fantastic charity founded by our own Patric to deliver “Unconditional Support for the Education and Welfare of Children…in an effort to deliver hope and opportunity.”   You can find out more about Friends of Buyijja by clicking the link below, and if you can we’d like to encourage you to make a donation to an amazing charity that’s doing amazing work.  Right now they’re working on a round of school supplies for the Children…

You can find out more, and make a donation here 

Happy Thanksgiving Tappers (whether you celebrate or not, we all celebrate through TSTO)!

About the Ads

Seeing reports from some of you via the comments or email that you’re having issues with the Ads that are appearing on this site.

First, let me remind you that we have ZERO control over the ads that are on this site.  We just tell WordPress it’s ok to have ads here (since that’s how we make the money to run this site), and they put the ads on our site.  So everything you see…whether a video or not…that has that ADVERTISEMENT in gray written over it is from WordPress’ ad partners.  Not us.

Note: I know some of you will use Ad Blockers.  But just remember, as annoying as the ads are they help this site function.  Without the ad dollars, this site wouldn’t exist.  We don’t ask readers for donations & i’ve spent enough out of pocket dollars over the last few years that I’m done pulling my own money to keep things running.  So without Ad revenue, we’d have to shut the site down. 

There are a few types of ads we’re seeing reported:

Offensive Ads…content of the ad offends you or is inappropriate for this type of site.

Video Ads….these are ads that popup and run the video and basically take over the site.  They hijack your scroll so you can’t move around the page or read comments.  (not just auto-play videos, these are ones that actually prevent you from scrolling)

Site Redirects…this is something that happens.  A popup appears and redirects you to another site or the app store.

So here’s the info on each, and what to do if you see them…

Offensive Ads….take a screenshot, right click and copy the URL associated with the Ad.  Then report it to WordPress here: https://en.support.wordpress.com/about-these-ads/

Video Ads…. I have reported these to WordPress.  Here’s the most recent update I received:

Our ads team has reported the issue to the advertiser and they were working on fixing it.

If the user does notice it, please encourage them to let us know via the link I sent you earlier. That way they can narrow it down to the particular advertiser.

So, if you’re still having problems with these ads follow the steps listed in Offensive Ads and report to WordPress here: https://en.support.wordpress.com/about-these-ads/

And finally…

Site Redirects…these are not caused by WordPress or this site.  These are caused by Adware/Malware on your device. (yes even iOS devices are subject to this as well)  My best advice here is to Google how to remove AdWare/Malware from your particular device and follow those instructions. I had the same issue in the past, and once I did the clean up it stopped.

Hope this helps create less frustration for some of you when visiting this site!  And please remember to report the Ads directly to WordPress here: https://en.support.wordpress.com/about-these-ads/ and not to us.  We have no control over them and sometimes it’s better if WordPress sees the report direct from the user impacted than from us.

Thanks!
