Thank you for your reply.
I am with uCoz from the very beginning (before it was sold to the investment fund).
In the Romanian market uCoz is doing very bad - has a tiny market share and 99% of users have problems paying for their website.
This is because the policy here in Romania was, a total disaster, to use automatic huge advertisement banners (that uCoz has no control over) that display penis enlargement, naked woman, and various disgusting ads.
It is an extremely bad adverting policy to show enlarging penis ads on 25% of the site and other crap like diseases on free sites.
Some top uCoz employees in countries such as Romania are either incompetent or ignorant or both. They are paid for doing nothing and you should fire them and find some competent leaders with vision immediately !
uCoz central offices are not taking suggestions from the right people.
When uCoz insults the users of their business partners (like myself) and <0.1% pay for a package you know something is wrong in that market.
I have made countless suggestions that were appreciated but it seems they never reached the right people.
The most intuitive, elegant and usable ad platform that uCoz can manage and control themselves without annoying, insulting and alienating its own users by showing huge banners with ridiculous content on the free websites, is the following :
Let me translate this for you. And send this to suggestions.
On 1000 pixels line you have 5 ads x ( 200 x 22 pixels ) for a total of 1000 px x 22 px with two buttons at the end of 11 px x 11 px. The button X closes the bar. The button R takes the user to a page where he can purchase ad space directly on uCoz platform. uCoz then shows the ads and consumes the credit when they are clicked.
The ad banner stays in a fixed position at the top for every free site, like the old bar you had in the past.
This way you control everything and free users in counties like Romania will start to like uCoz and pay for a package !
Unfortunately the excellent administrator you had for the English forums (Sunny) no longer works with uCoz anymore.
I am willing to help you improve your market presence in all markets and make uCoz a better platform but i need your help.
Otherwise i am forced to find alternatives to uCoz for my site + portfolio of sites somewhere else, despite the fact that i love uCoz, because the current advertisement policy on free sites does not work.

Many people are very disappointed by uCoz advertisements on free sites for both desktop PC and smartphones.
uCoz is making less and less money from such big banners because they were added to Ad Block Plus, and more people use ad blocking.
What uCoz unfortunately does is scare new users and insult old partners.
I want to support Urs idea, because i find it brilliant !
The system Urs proposes, would be a rival to Google Ad Sense, and i know that Google refused uCoz to use ad-sense in the past.
uCoz must have its own advertisement system and a slim 5 ads x 200 px x 22 px with 2 buttons of 11x11 px each, ( 1011px in total) in a fixed position at the top (not following the user) is a fantastic solution.
Thank you Urs.

On mobile phones (smartphones) uCoz advertisements redirect the site to a casino page or ask for installation of something on the entire screen.
This is terrible.
I advise you, on mobile phones to use a similar 5 x 200 x 22 on the top in a fixed position, not spamming advertisements or automatic redirect of site.
Please do something about this.

Two problems on mobile advertising.
1. Automatic redirection of site on mobile phones without the possibility to enter the site is unacceptable !
When you try to enter http://thassos.ucoz.com/ on smartphones the site gets redirected to Einbux.com or other sites.
When people come to uCoz.com they want to see a uCoz site not to be redirected to a casino game, without the possibility to see the original site.
2. Having advertisements over the full screen on mobile phones, on every page, and having to click a small button every time to close it, is an insult. Suggestion : Try a small fixed banner at the top of the site. (uCoz banner and copyright settings -> Static Banner does not work)
If you fix the mobile advertisement problems too, then i am willing to continue for two more years with uCoz for my site + portfolio of sites.
P.S: These problems should be fixed on all sites in the near future.
