Is it meant to be there? I'm on an ipad and its gone now.

Spoke too soon it's back.

Is there something odd about it? (Sorry, haven't seen it yet)

It's all around the edge of the page, it makes the text too small to read.

Don't like it, it's doing my head in. Totally changes the overall view of the page and whilst I think it is a very clever ad and very much gets its point across, it is detrimental to my 'reading experience' and is giving me a headache.

Doesn't work well in this environment, would work well on printed material but on an iPad it's dreadful.

I had that, seems to have gone now!

Happened every time I clicked on a thread. Very annoying.

It's really pissing me off now.

Yes, it's really annoying.

Hello. I think the Tech team are trialling some ads for tablet. I'm not sure how long they'll be up - we'll try to find out.

Please could we have the option to 'X' close the advert down as it really shrinks the text on iPad, pretty please smile

But if you do this all the time I have to start using the laptop instead of the ipad.

Ask tech for a kitten symbol instead.

Makes it impossible to read the text on iPad, the black border very distracting.

Agreed - I use iPad without the app but still got it and found it vv annoying (it's gone now)
