The ads! Omg they’re getting so annoying!
 
I’m usually pretty good at ignoring ads online, but on this forum they’re getting really obnoxious. They mess with the formatting and jump the page around! Is this happening to anyone else?

I use adblock plus and ublock origin on my browser. I don't recall ever seeing an ad on this forum. :stu

Mine have only been normal, but we used to have ones that automatically took you to other websites, and clicking the “Back” button didn’t take you back to where you were. It would happen every few seconds sometimes, and it was very annoying.

Me too - I only ever see ads on my phone. But I don't look at the forum much on that.

I think I viewed this forum once on phone. It looked like my phone wanted to detonate. Never again.

Have you tried the Tapatalk app? I like it because I can see some of my notifications without having to go on SAS. :)

I only ever view it on my phone 😊 - I think I may have gone on it on my computer a few times years ago....

This screen shot doesn’t show the glitchy page jumpy action of course, but the ad content is also off putting 😂

I don't know how to make it so I can type using my phone - I have no idea what this tapatalk thing is, and even if I did I probably couldn't get it to work. I'm not that great with technology. :roll

I checked because I always use adblocker (seriously don't use this site without it,) and there are some pretty serious issues like endless scrolling so you can't change the colour theme of the site.

I really need a Renault van in my life, maybe I could start up a delivery business.

^^ This lol, I'm like what are ads.

Install an adblock browser app.

Use adblock...

Like someone mentioned, Adblock Plus is one, Ublock is another. You don't need both. Just stick with one.

Can't remember if Ublock is on Chrome but then again, I don't care about Chrome. It can die.

Firefox forever.
