It's very annoying.

Hello! We'll flag this up at HQ. Any more detail on what's happening? Is it only on certain boards or something? Where does it appear on the screen? Any additional info welcome. We'll get someone to have a look into it.

It's the one that tells you you have a message / have won an iPhone andvtakes you straight to a scamming site.

Flashing ad here - iPhone, safari.

Have you decided to stick with the ads at the top? I thought you were reviewing it but haven't seen anything about it recently, although I haven't had time to look at MN apart from a couple of threads in the last few weeks.

If you are still looking at it, I still absolutely hate the ads at the top.

Sorry about this one - it's so darned persistent. Our ads team are on the case (again) and trying to block them all (again) - infuriatingly they come from lots of sources so it's not even a case of blocking just one ad. But we will do our best to find it and get rid (again).

<shakes fist>

Any update on this? It's driving me insane. It's on every third thread that I open.

It's at the top of the Primary Education Board. Had to close it down as it will give me a migraine

Hi, we're really sorry if these ads are popping up again. If anyone can post a screenshot or give us some specifics, we'll do our best to block them.

AgentProvocateur Thu 29-Jan-15 18:36:49

Here - as soon as I open the mobile site. Iphone 6 and Safari.

I keep getting a banner ad for dating it says 'do you want a girlfriend?' With a woman's face staring at me. Am I the only one who is getting them?! They only appear at night time, like now.

Sorry folks. Our ads team have raised this as an issue with Google Ads now because we're (obviously) not having a lot of luck stopping them at our end. Hopefully we'll have a comprehensive solution soon.
