The top banner, the "it's maternity leave" legal one, is about 5x the size of the others and is covering half my screen.

I'm on a Nokia Lumia.

It needs to go.

I'm imprisoned by Creiff bloody hydro

I've got the Crieff Hydro one too. It's making the site hard to navigate because it's covering most of the shortcut buttons.

DonkeyOaty Wed 13-Apr-16 18:06:20

Yes same here

Reluctant to utilise ad blocker because, y'know, them clicks is what makes MN free for us

I guess suck it up, use back-buttoning?

Hi, thanks for letting us know - and sorry that these ads are disrupting things.

We've flagged them both to our Ads team.

Are you all using the mobile site on Android?

DonkeyOaty Wed 13-Apr-16 21:08:03

Mobile site, Android (can't believe I forgot to mention that blush)

Tiggywinkler Wed 13-Apr-16 21:08:11

Thank you Dawn!

I'm on a Windows 8.1 phone.

Heebiejeebie Thu 14-Apr-16 14:13:30

On iPhone. You can't click on board link at the top

OddSocksHighHeels Thu 14-Apr-16 14:20:11

Yep, sorry, Android mobile site.

Mobile site, Android (can't believe I forgot to mention that blush)

Shame on you grin

Thanks all for this - our Ads team are working on it now.

Hey all,

We think the Crieff ad's been sorted now. Is anyone still seeing it?

OddSocksHighHeels Thu 14-Apr-16 19:36:02

Thanks Dawn I can't see it now but will pester you let you know if it comes back.

Whyhellodaffodil Thu 14-Apr-16 19:38:29

I'm still getting the maternity one, on iPhone? Not seen the Crieff one though

Whyhellodaffodil Thu 14-Apr-16 19:38:42

Talk of the devil, it just popped up!

OddSocksHighHeels Thu 14-Apr-16 19:38:48

As soon as I posted it came back!

NickNacks Thu 14-Apr-16 19:38:48

I'm still getting it

DawnMumsnet (MNHQ) Thu 14-Apr-16 20:15:57

Oh nooooo!

Spoke too soon. sad

We'll reflag it to our Ads team. Grrr.

Thanks, everyone.

I suggest your ads teams soend a few days reading MN on the mobile site as it's clear they've never been near it.

The worst bloody ads are the MN ones (when it's not another version of the flashing ! ads). Strongly contrasting blocks of colours constantly moving on a website that is used for reading is off putting, irritating and almost physically painful.

Drinksforeveryone Thu 14-Apr-16 20:26:46

Having similar trouble here.

Granted am using an older, slower phone than I am used to - but the whole site seems to just freeze up regularly.

It's very annoying.

Crieff Hydro back and taking over my screen again this morning.

Considered going there once; not any more!

Yes, I think the advert's doing the exact opposite of what Crieff Hydro wanted now. No MNer's going to want to go near the place.

unlucky83 Sat 16-Apr-16 09:19:46

I went to Crieff Hydro once - very very nice place....
(On a desktop with a script blocker so its not annoying me - just feel like someone should put in a good word for them wink)

Crieff Hydro has pocessed my HTC one M8! I'm getting towards wanting to hunt down the smiley faced boy in the ad and punch him in the face.angry
