    New Ads at bottom of page

    So I've figured out that if you click the little down arrow to the right, they hide below the screen, but MAN are they annoying.

    Agreed that they are over the top. They cover up places where one types and clicks on other things, and boxes that show forum information, and they show inane pictures that I cannot leave running on my computer in most places. I just started seeing them today. I cannot use the site with these running and I will have to go back to Tapatalk (where no ads will be seen) even when at the office.

    We all understand that running the site is expensive and that revenue needs to come from somewhere. But when the ads prevent the use of the forum, it's sorta like a watch that doesn't tell time.

    Same browser here and it drives me furiously angry, to the point where I have no fun on the forum, it's everywhere, every pages. Worst thing ever.

    yea, irritating as hell: send an email to the mods, they'll take care of it.

    I dont think this is WUS's fault, they have been trying to deal with it, ive got the same and all of us Aussie users still have ads on the right hand side of the page too covering 1/4 of the page, somehow its only on this website, Adblock does not fix it, but ive been told the Admin is trying to fix it up so thanks to them for being on the case.

    Brutal. I thought I'd picked up some malware or something. I get the need to generate revenue etc., but this is trashy, poor, invasive and gimmicky and it takes away from the user experience. [edit: good to hear it's being addressed, thanks]
