Lately I’ve had so many ads in the forums that it bothers the experience. I’ve had ads on top of the “reply” button so that I can’t respond to topics and on the top of the search button and the button that allows me to go see new topics. I don’t really mind the ads, but it’s becoming frustrating that they block me from using certain functions.
There are so many ads since yesterday. There are random ads between replies which make topics harder to navigate and read.
I am seeing this too. I’m afraid I don’t know much about the ad side of things, but generally speaking this time of year is the busiest in terms of ads. I’ll ask if there’s been any further changes.
Installing a free adblocker extension for chrome really improved my experience and sped up the site for me.
i don’t mind the number of the ads, i know you can’t help that, but is there any way to make it so that they’re possible to close? half the time clicking the x button to close them won’t work on mobile, and the ads are on top of the reply button. so i have to refresh the page every other time i want to reply to something
Yes!! This happened to me and I installed an ad blocker on my phone. [name_m]Ive[/name_m] had one on my laptop for a while but never thought to do it on my phone. I used the app BlockBear but there are a bunch of different ones to choose from.
This is not something we can control. As I understand it, we have slots for ads on our site, but these are filled by an ad partner and the X (or lack thereof) is part of the ad itself.
Ooh that makes sense. Maybe the ad could be moved so it’s not at the bottom of the screen where it covers the Reply button? I know nothing about this so sorry if I’m talking nonsense though
Thanks for commenting this, I’ve installed an ad blocker. It was easy to do and NB is navigable again - woop
