Ypn Ads Not Showing?

Is anyone else having a problem with ypn ads not showing for the last 30 minutes or so?

Also, when you log in, there are all these "sticky notes" over the reports that tell you what cpm, epc, etc. mean, and you can't see the report clearly.

Am I the only one?

They're baaaaaack.

I felt like the no cpm poltergeist was about to pull me through the screen there for a while!

No idea what happened. Ads are displaying now, though. It was unusual, because it was across all of my sites, not just eslsociety.com.

Anyone know whats up with those funky sticky notes covering up all of my reports?

Anyone else ever get this after clicking on a YPN ad:

looks like you clicked on an ad and we were unable to determine where to redirect you.

assuming you have cookies enabled, etc., you probably ran into a transient situation caused by taking one of the offer databases offline or due to a replication spike.

truth is, we're still tuning things. rest assured losing clicks is not something of which we want to make a habit.

Warezio, looks like the stats are really behind again, seeems like that should be something y! doesn't want to make a habit either. Do you know if we will ever see real time stats, or is that not high on the priority list?

i work in the content match serving group. reporting is handled by the business information group, so i can't really help you there. they are definitely working to improve the reporting infrastructure, but i don't have any details.
