So bad

ProudBadMum Tue 02-May-17 18:02:01

That's the one I keep getting

LiviaDrusillaAugusta Tue 02-May-17 18:03:29

Me too - it's bloody annoying.

CherieBabySpliffUp Tue 02-May-17 18:03:59

I was about to start a thread when I saw this. There's no way to get rid of it is there?

Crikeyblimey Tue 02-May-17 18:04:48

Nightmare when riding on my phone!

Please get rid.

ImCatbug Tue 02-May-17 18:05:21

Oops, just started a thread about this at the same time. It's really annoying me!

MirriMazDuur Tue 02-May-17 18:05:45

This is so annoying I may have to find something else to do and turn the internet off.

FaFoutis Tue 02-May-17 18:06:17

Horrible. Puts me off using MN.

MrsMozart Tue 02-May-17 18:07:07

Just arrived for the first time on my phone.

I don't use the site via laptop as the adverts are too intrusive, now it looks like coming here on my phone is due to end too.

GiraffesAndButterflies Tue 02-May-17 18:09:15

Yep just posting here to say that I'll now be reading my book instead of browsing MN tonight!

Notmyrealname85 Tue 02-May-17 18:10:00

Same! Makes me dizzy!

TrudyBell Tue 02-May-17 18:10:31

Please for the love of god get rid of it

heronsfly Tue 02-May-17 18:11:26

Same here, it makes me dizzy too !

troodiedoo Tue 02-May-17 18:11:45

Yeah please get rid.

junglebookisthebest Tue 02-May-17 18:14:28

Posting to find out what MN say about it and whether it will be temporary or permanent. It's horrible and actually is intrusive enough for me to want to stop reading on my phone, which would probably be good for my productivity but not good for page hits!!!
P.s. If it's a precursor to offering a paid for site without the adverts then I can tell you I won't pay!

Never seen an ad like this one, it's really annoying!

WickedLazy Tue 02-May-17 18:15:53

Agree they're really annoying, make it so much harder to read on a mobile.

PippaFawcett Tue 02-May-17 18:17:18

What would you all prefer - annoying ads or to pay to be a member of Mumsnet? And they work because I have just done a lucky dip for tonight and if I win I will be bloody glad there was an ad on Mumsnet!

offblackeggshell Tue 02-May-17 18:17:49

I had it top and side simultaneously - it didn't leave much screen visible!

SnickersWasAHorse Tue 02-May-17 18:19:25

It's not as binary as that though Pippa.
I don't mind banner ads, or the ones at the bottom of the page. I understand that MN needs them to keep running.
It's the side ads on the mobile site that make it unusable.

PippaFawcett Tue 02-May-17 18:21:52

I don't think they do make it unusable, just not as we, as users, would wish it to be. And they work for the advertisers which Mumsnet HQ needs in order to stay afloat.

cakesonatrain Tue 02-May-17 18:23:14

Just came to complain about this! Awful.

OokSaidTheLibrarian Tue 02-May-17 18:29:26

Completely agree, takes up way too much if the page on mobile. Makes it practically unusable.

SnickersWasAHorse Tue 02-May-17 18:43:55

Side ads on the mobile site make it damn near unusable Pippa

JCleRoux Tue 02-May-17 18:45:58

So annoying!
