We are in the process of implementing something new. A few things are being tested out so thank you for your patience. There will be a few temporary issues, please let me know if you see stuff like this. Right now there should be anything up and our goal is to do what we have done in the past. Show less ads for registered members and more ads for guests. I wish we could do it without ads all together, that just isn't an option unfortunately.

We will keep the user experience at the top of the list though. When the new ads go in place just give more feedback and we can tweak as needed.

Thank You.

No worries I'm cool with adds but it's impacting my ability to scroll/view the page/post, etc.  For example, I cant multiqoute which is critical for mafia.

And right now, I'm havnig to scroll all the way down on my browser to hit sub button.

just as examples.

I understand the ads and am okay with it but to add to Jif, more of my screen is ads than it is message board or it seems that way at least. They take longer to load so I've tried to click a topic but just at that time the ad loads and it moves the board so I end up clicking page 9 or something (an example that happened when I tried visiting this  specific thread).

I will check with the network. I am not seeing any ads at all right now. So I wasn't even aware they were up, it wasn't supposed to happen until the end of the week. But I will look into it, we definitely don't want everyone scrolling like that. Sorry.

I don't notice any ad's today but yesterday I had ads at the bottom bar it slightly interfered with the post reply box at the bottom of the page. I found that zooming out on Chrome shrunk the screen size and helped the issue, though I can confirm that as of this morning I see no ad's. :thumbup:

I get things like this everywhere on mobile now. 

On the lower left it says Guest. Can you make sure you are logged in?  Registered members see less ads. Thanks.

That is weird that it said Guest though.  Either way I think i found the problem and if they didn't turn it off yet, it will be done tomorrow.

There are ads on desktop and mobile that are showing up when logged in - in between posts and threads. We never had that before. So they are making those for guests only.  

I think that will fix it but if you see issues after tomorrow please let me know.  Thanks.

The ads I’ve gotten today should be banned due to the no politics rule! 

The ads are based on your search history.

Generally speaking I understand that, but I assure you I’ve never searched anything even resembling “dimwitted oompah loompah’s birthday”. And it only happened on that day which is why I posted about it.

Otherwise it’s been the standard ads that I’ve gotten used to seeing across various platforms which actually are relevant to my search histories. 

Either way, I don’t really care. Just something I noticed and figured you might want to know about.

I can disable.political ads but that would probably cut the site earnings in half right now.

I haven't seen one political ad myself.

Would you like me to disable political ads? If we do that right now the ads won't make enough to even pay the hosting. Just want to be clear in what is being suggested here.

Oh, nope sorry. I thought something had slipped past you Max. Just wanted to bring it to your attention. It just made me go woah! Didn't know if you were aware. 

I dont want you to remove them, no. I'm a big boy, I can handle a few ads I dont neccesarily appreciate. I dont run an ad blocker because I know it helps the site to run ads. I honestly was going to send this to you in a PM, but the PM format didn't have a place for me to include the screenshot.

Thank you. The ad market is a bit of a cluster blank right now. So I am hoping we can leave the political ads, it does make a difference, so I appreciate it.
