Is this the new advertising deal on the mobile app? A fairy advert at the end of each post. I am finding it intensely irritating sand keep clicking on it by mistake trying to refresh the thread.

The "back to top" button is gone too shock

NotPennysBoat Tue 02-Aug-16 21:21:18

It's driving me insane! Why on every post??

ninenicknames Tue 02-Aug-16 21:41:02

Yep. Doing my swede in

It's putting me off both Fairy ( my usual washing powder ) and MN.

The person the baby is lying on looks like they're made of dough. It's bothering me.

And when I start the app "sponsored" has been spelt wrong

peaceloveandtwirlywoos Tue 02-Aug-16 21:46:06

shock that misspelling just takes the biscuit!

Hughpughbarneymagrew Tue 02-Aug-16 21:46:11

It's making my inner pedant itch

Ive clicked on it a few times - very annoying.

I thought the woman was a mannequin.

marmiteloversunite Tue 02-Aug-16 22:09:51

I didn't even notice the woman! She looks like the pilsbury dough boy!
Glad it's not just me! grin

Are turquoise silicone goggles a thing ?

I have been wondering about this today,it's so annoying!

Also,threads about babies in headbands tend to descend into chaos , seems that baby eye masks are the way forward.wink

I thought the person the baby is lying on was a cushion! blush

twittwooery Wed 03-Aug-16 03:46:12

Takes up ~50% of the screen

Toddlerteaplease Wed 03-Aug-16 03:57:44

It's a person?! I thought it was a pile of freshly washed towels!

LyndaNotLinda Wed 03-Aug-16 04:04:36

Euew just noticed the creepy hand. I thought it was laundry too.

The typo is wrecking my head too. Not to mention Super Baby confused

TimMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 03-Aug-16 10:25:35

Hey guys, thanks for pointing out the typo, sorry about that blush

We've fixed it and have begun the release process, so it should hopefully be on the App Store in a few days - hang in there!

Footle Wed 03-Aug-16 10:32:20

Tim, what does that mean ?

TimMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 03-Aug-16 11:02:45

Footle the release process is where Apple have to approve the app, every time we make some changes to it.

So even when the changes are really minor, it always takes a few days before it will be approved, then update on your phone. Does that make more sense?

peaceloveandtwirlywoos Wed 03-Aug-16 12:53:06

Ehh why does this thread need to be hidden? Are Persil cross because we don't like their doughy mannequin?

cozietoesie Wed 03-Aug-16 12:53:32

Gosh. What did Tim say? grin

cozietoesie Wed 03-Aug-16 12:57:14

I'm guessing that MNHQ are trialling new advertising on the app to see what proves acceptable - to all parties - and what doesn't.

TimMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 03-Aug-16 14:26:28

Sorry guys, nothing that flammatory - the post just repeated itself, so it was deleted. In reflection, it now looks far more suspicious...
