No more youtube video ads

I am not sure if it is youtube's fault or your's, but I was forced to watch your video ad on youtube for about 50 times at least (i mean the first 5 seconds or so). I love your services, but anytime I hear "It's go time, you've been developing like a beast" when I want to see a stupid youtube video I want to kill myself. Am I the only one?

I saw, I use your service, thank you. No more please.

    I have the same problem :). I thing it's due to Google's ads targeting. Google is IMHO showing ads that we could be interested in, and that's currently only Digital Ocean, as we are developers and Google knows that very well.

    I don't think this is fault of Digital Ocean, but Google. Sad fact is, that this does actual harm to Digital Ocean, as hearing "It's go time" over and over again is quite irritating.

    You can also install Adblock plus :)
    And decide, how many ads you want.

    Same. The ads are frequent and irritating enough that I'd probably go with a competitor over Digital Ocean just out of spite.

    I'm experiencing the same as Tomas.

    I'd be OK if I saw it several times a week at max (or if it were just a short-time campaign), but I've been seeing it _many_ times per day for months now. I guess I'll continue using AWS, for now.

    It is not limited to one browser, so clearing cache doesn't help.

    Can you clear your cache and let us know if you're still seeing the ad?

    You can skip the ad iirc.
