I'm glad to hear that topical ads are still your goal. It's obviously going to take a while to get there, so in the meantime, are there any coarser filters that can be applied? Certain types of ads that are not generally inappropriate might nonetheless be inappropriate on particular sites; can we do anything about that? Examples: ads for mail-order meat (...

Which sites is this experiment running on? As far as I've seen so far the exact list of site hasn't been documented officially. I've said this before, but I really think that this kind of drastic change should be put on the relevant meta for each site that is part of the experiment (as long as it's a reasonably short list, otherwise it should be a globally ...

For several days I've noticed that all "community ads" have disappeared, and intermittent "team" ads (irrelevant to the site) popped up for at least a day. The particular site is tex.stackexchange. The community worked pretty hard to craft ads to call attention to non-stackexchange resources that would be useful to newbies first visiting the site -- ...

If you see any ads that are inappropriate or have any questions about this experiment, please let me know by starting a new question... I am not quite comfortable with above. Using meta to report inappropriate ads sounds like a sensible idea at a first sight but the thing is, it was already tried with job ads at Stack Overflow and has proven to work rather ...

Thanks for putting this on Meta so we can condense a lot of the information here. I'm wondering if we're going to see ads tailored to particular sites in the future. I'm as glad as anyone that we can keep Joel caffeinated, and since the 2016 announcement and the 2018 update on the ads program, I was looking forward to this move a little, because there had ...

I am concerned based on the examples cited by Monica and HDE 226868 and what they've already seen on the network. These examples - Bikini ads on Workplace and foreign language ads on Seasoned Advice - seem rather low quality. Frankly, they sound like something that should have been caught before going live. Can you explain a little bit about how the ...

I am quite sorry, but I don't think I can help you at these conditions. Please don't get me wrong, but as I read this announcement I can't help but to get a "let's try an see what happens, maybe they won't get too angry" vibe - I really don't get how much research has been done BEFORE and how much you expect to learn from the users having to face actual ...

feature-request When you're on the proposed synonyms page and you're the final vote on a proposal (4th up or second down), nothing happens, just the score changes. If you refresh the page it will be gone, but it would make more sense to have something see if it was the last vote and hide the row, for a visual confirmation that it's done.

bug Clicking on the tag in the "Target" column sometimes throws a 404 error I noticed this on BoardGames.SE. There are tags that do not have a number after them. Clicking on them throws a 404 error. For instance, clicking on [eldritch-horror-cities-in-ruin] navigates to https://boardgames.stackexchange.com/tags/eldritch-horror-cities-in-ruin/synonyms, ...
