Ads failing due to {Param2} added by MSN

So now I have to manually go through and remove about 100 ads that MSN added to my account that have a title of {Param2}.

I didn't ad these ads to my account, but I'm getting 15-20+ emails that my ads are rejected due to the "Ad text being too long" for these ads.

Anybody else (if you're even bothering to use adcenter anymore) seeing this happening?

Well - the instructions say:

Although {param2} and {param3} can each contain up to 70 characters, the ad title cannot exceed 25 characters, and the ad text cannot exceed 70 characters. Therefore, when using placeholders in the ad title or ad text, be careful not to exceed these limits.

When in doubt, read the manual.

I'm assuming that you are being sarcastic-

We didn't add these ads to our account - they appear to be duplicates of existing ads, with the title replaced with {Param2}.

We didn't do this - MSN added them automatically, and is now sending us violation notices.

Oh... my apologies.

Sounds like an unusual thing to happen... but who knows!

hi rehabguy,
Have you contacted adCenter Support about this issue? Is this happening for anyone else?
