Adverts obscuring MN page

(14 Posts)

Apologies if there's another thread on this but is anyone else getting massive adverts that cover half the top of the page and hide the "buttons"? There isn't even a cross to get rid of it. I'm on my desktop at the moment, don't know if it does on the mobile version.

V.v. annoying.

second that... annoying.

Yes, on MacBook and it's really irritating.

You need to install an ad blocker. I didn't use mine on here for a while (supports the site etc) but the huge intrusive adverts drove me nuts, so I switched it back on.

Thirded. It does pop back up eventually but if I pop into the _Chat board and then decide I want to click on "Threads I'm On", I have to wait for the advert to get out of the way before I can click on the button.

Don't think they meet the Better Ads Standards. Google will penalise in search if they're not careful.

Yep, I've got a whacking great John Lewis one. I'm on a laptop using MS edge

Yes, this is happening on my macbook. Am sure they weren't there yesterday. They're obscuring the most active / discussions of the day lists.

Yep happening on my laptop - really bloody annoying but I assume ad revenue is more important to MNHQ than posters being irritated.

There's a thread about this in Site Stuff saying that MN tech are working on it and trying to sort it out ASAP.

Presumably after we have seen the ads often enough to either make us click on them (when hell freezes over) or been exposed to them long enough to justify the money paid by the advertisers?

I second spiderlight. Site Stuff is the best place to complain about these things.

MNHQ won't see random threads in Chat (or AIBU), but they do see - and react - to them in Site Stuff.

If I turn off the adblocker I get a huge ad that takes up almost all of the screen.

When I turn it back on I get a non stop circle telling me to consider adding it to my whitelist. This takes a while to clear and also blocks the screen.

I am using a laptop. I am finding very annoying.

There is a thread in Site Stuff about this.
