Are they here to stay MNHQ? Because it's really, really, annoying...

I'm talking specifically about the flashing mayor of London cycling one.

<whispers, as if by magic it's gone now...>

I had a few tabs open and some had them and some not! It was so wierd I took a screen shot of it to ask! Helpfully you had already started a thread on it grin

I've got it too, on the TIO page and active convos but not in the site stuff board

Sometimes it's there, sometimes it isn't. Very annoying as makes my font smaller.

Myliferocks Thu 18-Apr-13 11:49:03

Ok this is getting serious! I'm going to have to do some work as I can't MN with that advert everywhere.
It effects the font which makes the page harder to read and adjusting the font doesn't help!

Yes, it is really obtrusive - covers the text on the side and at the bottom, makes it impossible to MN as you can't read the threads.

Is on mobile version only from what I can see (my laptop is fine but it's showing in my ipad).

Rosesforrosie Thu 18-Apr-13 12:18:04

Phew, I thought for a horrible moment I'd hallucinated it!

It was very very annoying, but seems to have disappeared for now (on iPad).

Myliferocks Thu 18-Apr-13 12:20:57

I'm on my iPad and it only seems to disappear if I log in to MN.

Gerrof Thu 18-Apr-13 12:46:14

Yes it's gone now on the iPad.

Polgara2 Thu 18-Apr-13 14:25:58

Thats really annoying! Now the advert has gone but the space where it was is still there, just blank. So my text is still too small.
Change it back purleeeeeeeeease!!

Polgara2 Thu 18-Apr-13 14:26:26

Am on iPad btw

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.

Rosesforrosie Thu 18-Apr-13 14:56:43

Thank you grin

I haven't seen any since I complained earlier if that helps. <been on here most of the day, as off sick and can't walk>

CheeseandGherkins Thu 18-Apr-13 15:40:07

Hate it. It's annoying and makes everything else too small. I have ad blockers but it doesn't block these. Have to find something that does or stop using on my tablet. Hate adverts at the best of times but as the site isn't great on tablet anyway this just makes it awful.

BOF Thu 18-Apr-13 15:55:37

Yes, it's bugging me too.

Icedcakeandflower Thu 18-Apr-13 16:23:51

Hate it too, so thought I'd come here to see what's going on.

I'm on my iPad and the ads make the typeface too small to read without expanding.

Please can we return to how it was.

NervyWervy Thu 18-Apr-13 16:26:01

Also hate it!

ColetteTech (MNHQ) Thu 18-Apr-13 16:37:23

Hi All,

Could you can send us a screen shot of what you're seeing to the usual contactus address, please?

As HelenMumsnet said, we are trialing some new ads for iPads and the font size looks okay on the ipad I'm looking at but would like to compare it to what you are seeing.



MisForMumNotMaid Thu 18-Apr-13 16:39:43

Its gone now, but i'm on my IPad and earlier turned off it was that bad. I thought the IPad had developed a fault.

ArtemisKelda Thu 18-Apr-13 16:41:15

The font size went really small on my iPad and the ad was very distracting.

Gerrof Thu 18-Apr-13 16:44:23

The advert has completely disappeared from my ipad now.

Icedcakeandflower Thu 18-Apr-13 16:52:50

It's gone fro mine too.

MardyBra Fri 19-Apr-13 00:07:56


My font sizes are all over the place. Going to sleep now as its very annoying.

OvO Fri 19-Apr-13 00:11:14

It just appeared as I read this thread.



Sorry about that.

It's exactly the sort of thing that makes people click OFF mumsnet.
