What's new

The ads are back :(

They will never completely go away for you.
Sure, but this is the same as when the issue was first reported. I have that infuriating fixed ad at the bottom, multiple large ads on each page, an ad after every three posts, and about 25% of the time I switch pages it is interrupted by a pop-up ad that prevents me from continuing until I click to close it.

If the fixed ad and the pop-ups went away I would be fine. As it is I have pretty much avoided B&B for the last week and only checked in occasionally to see if it has improved. Surely this is way more aggressive than intended?

A new method of ad control is supposed to be implemented tomorrow I am told.
 
Thanks, Phil. Fingers crossed. I wasn’t intending to post about it but rather give you guys time, until I saw this thread that seemed to say it was fixed - for a time at least. For me it hasn’t changed yet.
 
But if the site is a mess of ads for new members and non-contributors won’t they just go elsewhere?
Yup, which is why this is being worked on per Phil.

Any forum that I have been an active member of, I tend to become a supporter so the ads are completely out of the picture. There can be growing pains for all members obviously…
