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

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

The Boots ad is actually something different to the now-abandoned iPad side ads.

It's what's called a page takeover and is there to promote our work with the Boots Feel Good Forum radio shows.

We have moved it from Active Convos, though; it's now on the Talk Home page. smile

If you increase the page size she disappears off the side wink

i don't mind kate thornton at all but having her stare at me whilst I am busy looking at mums net working freaks me out.

I feel like she is watching me choose which thread to look at !

Mine has just started. It's all blue and Boots signs

it's too busy

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.

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.

MardyBra Mon 22-Apr-13 09:43:45

Oh no, they're on my PC now. Arggggh.

Btw, that was me up there ^^ as TiredHandbag. Was on a namechange for the handbag having its own seat on the bus thread.

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

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

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].

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

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

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

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

It seems to have gone again?

MirandaWest Fri 19-Apr-13 11:11:02

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

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