Ive started getting a Dell tv screen popup at the bottom of my phone everytime I click on a new page.

I'm getting all sorts of pop up ads at the bottom of my screen on my laptop for last few days.

Advertising is just swamping the TAMB more and more and making it very hard to enjoy it after over 17 years on here.

Almost unbearable now.

Same here. All sorts at the bottom of every page to add to all the ones at the top of each page and at the side with the screen resizing and moving for a few seconds each time. Driving me crazy !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Is this still happening? We are working with the ad people to remove the ones that are causing issues.

If anyone has issues can you possibly DM me screenshots with your device etc as it helps us recreate to remove anything that is too annoying.  I might not always see these posts till a few days later, by which time usually it's fixed itself or moved on to next ad cycle.

Whether it's on desktop or tablet, this place is becoming unbearable with adverts. Adverts pop up in between threads and trying to post using a tablet is a bloody nightmare because of the adverts at the bottom.

Can you send me a screen print example of exactly what you are getting? Some adverts are an necessary evil unfortunately to keep the board running but we don't want them to make it unusable. We can't recreate the issues others are having so if we get as much info and screen prints we can then work on it for you.

Site uses ads for revenue, it's common internet wide.

Most people would use an adblocker to avoid the intrusion...

Anyone with half a brain knows you need add blockers and should use VPNs on the web.

I'm trying to recreate some of the problems people are getting and struggling, some depend on what you have previously visited online. I get the Sky Witness one to come up but it's at the very bottom of the screen and doesn't block any content and is easily closed, Others may get a different version which is why screen prints are useful to try get to the bottom of any issues and help solve peoples problems.

As others have stated ads are vital to the board to keep it running, costs are high and ads help cover some of this cost, although not all of the costs associated with the board. We want to have as little ads as possible and finding the balance between user experience and trying to cover costs is a very thin line unfortunately.

it's nothing to do with what the ad is (ie what you've "previously visited online"), it's to do with the screen space that they are given.

to recreate, just get a tablet and try to reply to a post.

its pish.
