Ads....

Very annoying, that they clog up the threads. Is there a way to stop them? I'd gladly pay a small fee.

When are you seeing these ads?
I don't see anything like that when I'm logged in

Just winging it is not a plan

As jaydee mentioned, are you logged in when you are seeing this? Are you seeing them across the site or they appear more within certain threads/sections/forums? Can you provide us the link to the page you are seeing them on if you're logged in and screenshots as well? Let us know what device/browser you are using as well.


Thanks,
Nate

Hi, when I'm using the advanced mobile site on a droid, I believe it's chrome browser. I am logged in. it's mainly in threads, mixed in. I've attached a couple screen shots.

For me, there are mainly 3 places.
* A bar across the top.
* A Box in the right column, below the google search bar, and above the Premium Vendor Showcase box.
* A bar across the bottom.

Many have videos and sometimes sound or changing screens, which slows them down dramatically.

I have an Adblocker which I believe is still working, and likely it is only the paid for sponsors' that are the issue.

Hello there,

Unfortunately, we do not have any control over this. We are looking into it and trying to resolve the issue.
Anyone else having the same problem?

Best regards,

Edward

On my computers, I have uBlock Origin on my browsers, so no ads.

On mobile... it's bad. Real bad. I'd say 60% of the screen is taken up by ads at any time. I don't even bother.

Here is a screenshot (logged in):

So I installed Firefox, they have mobile addons for ad blockers. Seems to be doing the trick so far!

I use Firefox with uBlock Origin. I used to use Adblock Plus, but there was some drama with that so I switched. It makes my browsing experience better in general, across all sites.

Firefox with AdBlocker or UBlock Origin works well. Chrome is awful, and mobile is awful. I don't even bother with the site on my phone anymore.
