I and My Husband Ron, own Leader, A Manual Traffic Exchange. Internet Marketing, Meeting new people, Sweeving at Sweeva, Blogging with Instant Blog Subscriber, Surfing TEs with TE Browser.

So what is the Real Truth about
Traffic Exchanges ?

“A leader is a person who consistently demonstrates what’s possible. A follower is a person who consistently observes leaders, then forms a small group and talks about what’s possible. Followers talk. Leaders act.” ~ Mark Yarnell

StartXchange Policy Changes! YEAH NO MORE AUTO-PLAY!

Aug 13th 2010 at 10:41 AM

I received this email from Tim Linden just this morning.

Starting today, all *new* sites added to the first pages
and prize pages may not contain auto-playing sound. All
pages that are already in place will remain so.

One of the things that sets StartXchange apart from
other exchanges is the ability to surf without sites
playing sounds on your browser.

Because of the prize pages and first pages containing
sound, this kinda defeated the purpose of it all.

You can of course have videos or sounds with a play
button, they just can't start on their own ;-)

I hope this change helps you have a more smoother
surfing experience than before, but please be patient
as there are some sites in there that have already
paid and have sound on them!

This will give all of us A CHOICE to play the Videos
AT OUR CONVENIENCE and not have things blaring at
Aside from the fact that the autoplay feature takes
up so much resources on our computer.

As for me I disable that while surfing anyway, so its
best for all to follow suit and add a PLAY BUTTON to their
Presentations , If they want my business.

I have been a happy member at StartXchange for years.

If you like to join our happy group of people you can do so here.

Again, Thank you Tim, now please do the same at SWEEVA :)

This is good news. I really hate the autoplay sites especially when im surfing on several TEs at the same time or im hearing music.

Just an update. I am very disappointed, that so many Traffic Exchanges still accept sites with autoplay. I surf many TE's on any given day and this makes it so frustrating, let alone them being such resource hogger's. We at Leader EXchange do not accept them any more, unless they have a play button. Our members love it and are quick to report sites that snuck in on rotators on us:) So I am hoping that more TE's will follow suit and make that request to their members, to not submit autoplay sites. Most owners of the sites are quite willing to put a play button on their sites.

Thanks for your post, Brad. I am forced to disable my Flash Player, so that I don't get blasted by these sites with autoplay, when I am surfing. It also saves the resources on my Computer. It really is a shame, that so many marketers can't just have the consideration toward us and put that simple Play button on their videos. We at Leader EXchange, no longer accept any sites that have the autoplay feature on them, and I am happy to say That most of our members don't have a problem with that. I am hoping that more website builders will follow suit, by adding that precious "Play Button" :) Monika

Yes agree to have sound blasting out at you can irritating at times when your listening to some tunes when surfing.

I agree that it should be our choice whether or not we have to hear the autoplay pages. I usually have the sound on mute because of this

Yes I agree with you Demetrius, and we will follow suit TONIGHT at our own TE, Leader It will be on our Front page and anywhere else we deem necessary, to remind our members. But you see, Demetrius, it took someone like Tim to get the ball rolling. Most of us couldn't afford to burn our bridges. I always surf by disabling the auto surf feature.Monika

It would be GREAT if ALL TEs did this. I routinely mute sound when I surf. Thanks for the heads up. Demetrius
