I am getting a line across the screen whenever I am on MN and have done for a couple of days. It looks like it is my phone screen but only appears when on MN. And strangely it is not on this page!

I will try to get a screenshot

It's because of the ads at the top of the page apparently.

I get that on my android too.

Passmethecrisps Wed 25-Oct-17 14:20:20

it’s a small thing but I am trying to work out if it is my phone or the site. Like I said though, it only appears on MN

Passmethecrisps Wed 25-Oct-17 14:20:56

Ah! Now I have an ad blocker so is that something to do with it?

MongerTruffle Wed 25-Oct-17 14:22:09

It's been mentioned on the other countless threads complaining about the new ads on MN.

It's the site. I have it too.

It’s deeply annoying.

Hello there Passmethecrisps - a screenshot would be super helpful, thanks!

In the meantime, can we ask what iPhone you're using, and which browser?

The class leaderboard_advertising has a bottom border in the css of 1px (which shows regardless of adblock/no adblock) which is why the line is showing, it's just a bit more obvious with adblock on as there isn't the advert to distract from it.

iPhone 6s Plus using Safari. Sounds like it is the ads though.

Here’s a shot from mine. iPhone 7

tkband3 Wed 25-Oct-17 14:55:23

Yup, me too. Iphone 7plus, using safari.

MirandaWest Wed 25-Oct-17 14:55:59

I've been getting this - glad it's mumsnet and not my phone

LineysRun Wed 25-Oct-17 14:56:23

It's because of ads.

Got a horrible flashing pac-man piece of crap right now, off centre yet still annoying as hell.

MirandaWest Wed 25-Oct-17 14:58:11

It happened after I posted.

Am using an iPhone 6 on safari

Rainyboooooo Wed 25-Oct-17 14:58:29

I have this too! Safari on iPhone SE. It’s so distracting.

Not just iPhone. I'm on a Samsung s7 using chrome. I don't have adblock either.

WitchesHatRim Wed 25-Oct-17 15:30:00

I have it on Samsung too.

Thanks for the screenshots, everyone - we've passed these on and we'll update with more info once we have it. flowers

I have it on Samsung too.

Also on my amazon fire.

Will the intern who codes mn is excelling himself!

Dlpdep Thu 26-Oct-17 20:21:06

iPhone 6, same issue, only mumsnet, fine on everything else!

Blockb Thu 26-Oct-17 20:51:35

It's only on mumsnet as it's a styling they have in their css (to put a bottom 1px border on that class), they just need to remove it, It's a one line css fix, should be quick to do.

Vanillamanilla1 Thu 26-Oct-17 20:53:54

I get it too only on MN
I was trying the cm scratch at the screen as its a line thats a 1/4 way down the screen and looks like a scratch
The screen is smooth so it's not my phone
