Same here.

I suspect it’s caused by a mechanism called “Pacing delivery” which postpones the ad serving. Probably a workaround measure to slow down abusers.

In practice, it happens that most of the inline content ads (news) are only being shown within an 1-hour window or so, in the middle of the night. It’s bad for us but also for the advertiser I reckon since nobody is seeing it.

i have checked several times during the day / night and i see nothing!

the whole purpose of the add is to see it, so not sure how its abuse if i am actively viewing them when available lol

Well, I don’t know how’s the current catalog in your country, but try and check between 03:00 and 04:00 UTC (this is when it usually appears for me) or maybe right after your local midnight.

I’m not sure if it’s a local or global parameter though.

Sometime they change hours, but news ads are definitely time related, personally I got them, usually around 7:00 and 0:00 utc.

Yes.

But it definitely wasn’t time related until a few days ago.

What’s your local UTC offset?

Let’s not forget they’re about to remove wallet linking limits so it’s no surprise such cappings occurring right now.

Hope it’s a temporary measure since these “news” ads are usually worth.

I’m having this issue too, though it started recently, last month I had been getting them regularly. Now I only get a few when I’m lucky even though there should be plenty.
It happens both on android and on pc.
