Very intrusive! The box pops up and cannot be closed. It is appearing currently tv addicts.

Any chance this could be sorted as it's making reading the forum impossible.

Thanks smile

Yes, it is intensely irritating isn't it? MN have responded to a previous thread in Site Stuff about it here. The only way I've found to get rid is to agree to subscribe to this bloody newsletter. I will be unsubscribing at the first opportunity.

Ah thank you tribpot. I shan't be subscribing, but will wait until MNHQ have sorted this out. Yes, it is indeed intensely annoying!

tribpot Sun 16-Apr-17 16:42:30

I don't blame you, MyBeloved. It is incredibly poor form to require a sign up like this - MN should be disabling the popup until they can get it to work properly but I would imagine they have no tech support over the weekend.

We're so sorry about this. We've made tech aware and hope to come back to you with an update soon.

MyBeloved Sun 16-Apr-17 17:02:01

Thank you smile

I am close to ditching mumsent after the issue a week or so ago and now this.

It's driving me MAD!

How can you do this on the day of the last Homeland episode on the series? How can we discuss it as it unfolds? It freezes the bloody page.

And tension is hotting up towards the last Broadchurch tomorrow.

Tech, could we kindly interrupt and request you finish your Lindt bunny later?

I really don't want to subscribe. I have enough in my Inbox and I am

Thegirlinthefireplace Sun 16-Apr-17 18:34:46

I won't be watching Homeland until tomorrow but I like reading everyone's live comments so agree, bad timing!

FATEdestiny Sun 16-Apr-17 19:24:21

Just coming to say the same thing. Cross in the corner doesn't function, no means to click off the pop up.

BeyondUser24601 Sun 16-Apr-17 19:54:14

Yep, I'm here to say the same thing too...

BlackeyedPetitsPois Sun 16-Apr-17 22:04:45

Same here. Had to click subscribe to close the bloody thing.

I've just had to come out of the latest Line of Duty thread and open up MN again to be able to do anything on MN. I couldn't close the box and I couldn't leave the page or click on another topic. I'm not subscribing to anything, thanks all the same.

HelenaDove Sun 16-Apr-17 23:16:59

Its made the site unusable and you have to come out of the site and come back in again.

SinisterBumFacedCat Mon 17-Apr-17 00:44:30

Just had this happen. It is physically impossible to click the x. Wtf

SinisterBumFacedCat Mon 17-Apr-17 00:49:13

Again. Can't looks at any telly addicts threads. Really really really annoying

HeadfirstForHalos Mon 17-Apr-17 00:59:05

I had the same earlier, refreshing got rid of it for a while.

FeralBeryl Mon 17-Apr-17 01:11:36

Another one who has very unwillingly subscribed in order to shift the little bastard

SinisterBumFacedCat Mon 17-Apr-17 01:20:39

I open up another window buts it annoying. Have to avoid my favourite haunt, Telly Addicts

SinisterBumFacedCat Mon 17-Apr-17 21:05:52

STill happening

specialsubject Mon 17-Apr-17 22:00:41

What the hell? I subscribed and it still won't go. Now very.pissed off as I will get loads of junk. Please unsubscribe me and get rid of this nonsense.

Dragonglass Mon 17-Apr-17 22:02:28

Same problem here. I want to discuss the last Broadchurch.

Glossolalia Mon 17-Apr-17 22:14:23

It's awful. Not very user friendly and makes the site seem very desperate for sign ups.

MyBeloved Mon 17-Apr-17 23:26:57

Still happening MNHQ!

MyBeloved Mon 17-Apr-17 23:28:29

specialsubject, I can't believe you subscribed and the bastard box is still there! How frustrating!
