to think that the pictures (pregnant woman with fishtail plait, woman in rollers shaving, dog covered in spaghetti etc) are the single most annoying thing about Mumsnet?

I know there's lots of things we whinge and complain about, but this by FAR the worst, isn't it? Surely?

If I agree with you, do I get chocolate?

Mintyy Mon 19-Oct-15 19:08:57

Yes, have some virtual chocolate.

I feel like starting a petition!

The pregnant woman with fishtails really irritates me for some reason

She just popped up again when I was really really studiously trying to avoid her! Gah!

SwedishEdith Mon 19-Oct-15 19:16:54

I don't know who they're for? What is their purpose?

Are these images on the mobile site, or original site?

Are you on glue?

Wtf? confused

Yanbu. Isn't it time for new photos if they have to have them? And maybe not 'humorous'

Mintyy Mon 19-Oct-15 19:20:47

Swedish, they are photos to go with the talk topics along the blue banner at the top of the page (Pregnancy, Baby, Child, Education, Life and Style, Food, Money, Jobs etc) but they pop up if you accidentally scroll or hover anywhere in the vicinity. I have never to my knowledge clicked on one of those topics but I get the pictures popping up virtually every time I scroll through Active Convos. Intensely irritating.

You might not get them on the mobile site? Try logging on on a laptop if you want to see (which you don't, believe me).

SantasLittleMonkeyButler Mon 19-Oct-15 19:21:52

Yes! The one I absolutely can't stand is the woman with the peg on her nose. Because it looks as though she's about to vomit - and seeing it makes me feel sick. I'm not good with sick!

The pregnant woman doesn't really bother me as such, apart from feeling sorry for her that she's still pregnant. Must be the longest pregnancy in history!

MamaLazarou Mon 19-Oct-15 19:21:59

I've been on Mumsnet for 7 years and have never seen these pictures.

BYOSnowman Mon 19-Oct-15 19:22:10

The child covered in paint looks old enough to know better. It's almost like a challenge.

And the work woman really irritates me with her gormless look. Is she pregnant fishtail woman as well?

Mintyy Mon 19-Oct-15 19:24:32

How do I do a screenshot? Am on ye olde fashyonned laptop.

GruntledOne Mon 19-Oct-15 19:25:28

YA definitely NBU. It wouldn't be so bad if they didn't keep popping up when you don't want them to and obscuring what you do want to look at.

FelicityGubbins Mon 19-Oct-15 19:27:02

I get irritated by the cream leather sofa that looks like an arse crack....

anotherbloomingusername Mon 19-Oct-15 19:27:42

I know not of these pictures of which you speak.

EponasWildDaughter Mon 19-Oct-15 19:28:15

I can see them all apart from a woman with a peg on her nose. Where's that?

Hate the dog one. Looks like it's being tortured.

SwedishEdith Mon 19-Oct-15 19:30:33

Oh, sorry, I know what they are and I'm as irritated by them as everyone else. Was just asking a more exasperated question out loud. I feel so angry about them I've even ceased to think the baby is cute.

PrivatePike Mon 19-Oct-15 19:37:59

Oh yes - these are awful. And so easy to accidentally click on! I'll be quietly minding my own business when suddenly THE SPAGHETTI DOG or the PREGNANT BUG EYED WOMAN will leap out at me. It's really quite unsettling.
