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

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

It was here but only in Active Conversations before on iPad. Was at top and left hand side and covered over those parts of Actuve Conversations. Thought I was going (slightly) mad

I just sent a screenshot to ColetteTech, but realised I didn't add any text. I'm on iPad on safari, Colette <waves>

Thanks for the screenshots everyone, I'm having a look through them now. Will get back to you with an update.

Makes my font waaaay too small and the way it flicks on and off is annoying. I'd say it reduces page size by a third and font size accordingly! How do you take a screen shot on ipad?

Hi, it's thanks very much.
To take a screen shot press the menu button (the one below the screen) and the power/lock button simultaneously.

I've just emailed too - was on the Mumsnet local site search page.

Rosesforrosie Fri 19-Apr-13 11:12:32

It seems to have gone again?

Myliferocks Fri 19-Apr-13 11:18:52

Definitely still appearing Will try and do a screenshot next time I see it!

Myliferocks Fri 19-Apr-13 11:51:55

I've just emailed a screenshot that I took a couple of minutes ago.

Please,please do something about it as I am getting fed up of actually having to do some work rather than MNing! sad

Thanks very much for the feedback. It's clear these ads aren't at all popular, so we've ditched the idea and will have to find an alternative way of earning a crust [sniff].

Thank you, I hate hate hate them!

BOF Fri 19-Apr-13 18:32:48

Thank you so much- they were horrid.

Fuckwittery Fri 19-Apr-13 20:22:14

Thank you for getting rid of them. They disappeared as soon as I complained about them so I couldn't take a screen shot!

Rosesforrosie Fri 19-Apr-13 22:08:27

Thank you so much!

MardyBra Mon 22-Apr-13 09:48:40

Oh well. At least I'll get some work done this morning. I can't take Kate Thornton grinning inanely on Active Convos.

carriedawayannie Mon 22-Apr-13 09:52:33

Its awful Mardy. It ruins the whole of MN for me. Are they here to stay on the full site.

I can't handle them.
