Tis so fucking annoying. I know, adds is money is good business, and I even read a few.

But the top add that does not fuck off when you scroll down / up? which means losing half the screen, and to add insult for me it’s some duck faced smug arse selling shite I’ve no interest in, means I do not even read the op. Such is the duck face annoyance that I click away rather than read / comment.

Please make the top add bar fuck off when I start scrolling.

Please x

Agreed.

Ha! Remus thought I was being a mardy arse so thanks

But it really does wind me up, not that OPs are missing out from my rapier wit, but Please Do Fuck Off With The Advert MN.

Else I’ll ummmm, be annoyed. Cheers.

Hi GirlDownUnder,

We'd love to help you here - sounds like you're mightily Fucked Off. (fair enough)

But first we need to know which device you're using, which version of the site and all that jazz.

We're a bit scared to ask for a screenshot given the mood you're in, but if you post one here, that would be a big help.

Who knows? It could be that the ad's not meant to stick around once you start scrolling. Or it could be that it IS meant to stick around. In which case, we'll at least be able to pass on your Fucked Offness. grin

Morning Dawn mardyness levels have gone down since a sleep so I am safe(ish) now grin

Also the ‘stuck’ add today isn’t the duck face pouty one that annoys so yay maybe.

I’m on an iPad mini, running iOS 11.2.5

Hope I’ve attached the screen shots for you.

Thanks.

Hi GirlDownUnder,

Thanks so much for coming back to us with the extra information.

We're sorry to hear that you dislike the fixed leaderboard - it shouldn't fill any more than 30% of your screen, so we're hoping this isn't happening at the moment?

It's actually a new format that we're testing - we really appreciate the feedback here and have made note.

Psst, GirlDownUnder, a word in your shell-like...try logging in (think it disappears when you do...)

GirlDownUnder Thu 22-Feb-18 13:45:30

I am logged in - always! I mean sheesh how rude not to be.

I still had it today but as it was not an add that drove me to rage, I was v zen [prey icon] (not available yet)

I will report back soonest HQ.

Thanks for your efforts brew

Justine, I think you should have realised that GirlDownUnder was already logged it ... because her screenshots show that someone on that thread (presumably the OP) had a highlighted colour which would only show if one is logged in grin

PanPanPanPing Thu 22-Feb-18 15:16:18

... meaning that GDU was clearly already logged in when she took the screenshots!

I thought this thread was going to be about the ads for the horrific multi-coloured shoes.

good point, well made - we're just checking it out (possibly an ipad issuette...)

PanPanPanPing Thu 22-Feb-18 15:51:41

But you were telling her to log in and then <secret squirrel> she might lose the top ad. I don't think it works that way!

Heliophilous Thu 22-Feb-18 15:58:12

30% of the screen is masses, though. That's nearly a third! Are you seriously suggesting that isn't annoying?

We're testing a few different things on a few different boards - just want to check if it's working...

30% is very much a maximum - it's the cut off point suggested by coalition of good ads, so that's where we set the maximum bar. Only a very small number of users are likely to have that 5 though - it will only apply to those who are accessing mumsnet via desktop on very small screens... the average user will have a much lower % of the screens showing ads. Hope that makes sense...

Heliophilous Thu 22-Feb-18 16:51:58

Ah, OK. Yes, that makes sense. Thanks.
