Went to my queue only to see a pop-up ad of "We Recommend My Girlfriend is a Gal". Had to click an X to close it to actually get to my queue. Please GET RID OF THIS "feature".

It's even worse because I just dropped this show from my queue a few days ago. But I'm not asking you to make the recommendations smarter, I'm asking you to stop the pop-up ads. Nobody likes them. Nobody. Keep the ads to the sidebars where they don't interfere, please.

Edit: Just got another pop-up ad for a show I dropped. STOP IT.

Edit: Latest count, out of 4 ads, 3 are shows I dropped, 1 is for a sequel to a show I never watched.

A lot has changed here since the management shift and all us subscribers are trying to make it through till things even out. These popup ads should be a "no go" for premium members. You already got our money.

I haven't had one hit me in a while, but the next time I do I'll probably just train my ad-blocker to remove them like I did with that annoying CR Expo banner.

It's really annoying and has yet to recommend me an anime that isn't on my history or already on my queue, so it's not like it even workds properly. At least a way for premiums to opt out is needed

I definitely don't like pop-up ads, and I think that very few people do. The suggestions so far haven't even been at all relevant to my interests. I'm not totally against suggestions, but I think it would be a lot better for them to not appear as obnoxious pop ups. I'd suggest that the area in a user's queue beneath the history would be a place you could put these sorts of suggestions.

Obviously this doesn't look super great as I've just roughly done it up myself, but it should give an idea of what could be a viable alternative (large image).


Edit: Spelling

Yes. I'm paying for service. I should not be getting pop-up ads. If I want 'suggestions' I can click on a link.

Agreed. Why am I paying for a sub to still get irritating pop ups?

I haven't been watching anime on my PC much lately. But just ran into one of these pop ups tonight when I went to check my queue.

I add my voice to those who say "please remove this feature." It's annoying.

And even if I wanted to get a pop up like that for recommendations (which I don't), the one I saw had barely legible text that clashed with the rest of the site.

Popups should NEVER be used. PERIOD.
If I had one wish, I would go back in time to curb stomp whoever created this marketing atrocity.

This. I pay for service because I DON'T want to see ads. I don't care if you call them "suggestions" or whatever. It's detrimental to the user experience.

Been some time since I saw the ads, so I thought they finally wised up and removed them. Then I watched the last episode of Restaurant to Another World, removed it from my Queue, refreshed the queue, and saw this.

I can enjoy some recommendation. But it should learn from my history and avoid at all cost to recommend me everyday the same anime that I'm not interested in / I've already dropped / I've already watch entirely !

Just add a "don't recommend me again" check box for it to be "smarter"
