    Is anyone else having issues with the Forum site and experiencing both slowness is loading pages and links to threads etc moving as different ads come up (causing you to click on the wrong link)?

    Seems heaps slower the last few days and is nearly unusable on the mobile. Slowest loading website I have ever been on.

    And before some smart arse says it's my internet connection, it isn't. Only happens on this site and only for the last few days/week.

    I reckon that Finchy Pointbet ad is the cause.

    So it isn't just me. That's good. It's painful for a few days now.

    I'm using Chrome on an Android tablet and haven't had a single problem. Not getting the ads with the desperate hotties though either.

    Not running anything. I'm guessing this is just hitting certain setups.

    My tablet, android samsung internet browser, is totally fine. It seems the fancy ads are not present.

    My laptop, osx safari, works fine. Though the experience with the gutter ads clunking in after initial load is kinda awkward.

    My phone, android with chrome, is terrible and practically unusable most the time. I believe its the fancy scrolly ad. Im guessing the ad is a large download and too cpu intensive.

    Agreed. Piss him off and replace him with the Russian singles.

    It's the move Fox Sports pulls when they decide they need more high pitched nonsense.

    We prefer not to encourage that kind of behaviour thanks.

    The small revenue that is yielded by the ads greases the cogs that keep this (free) site running. :thumbsup:

    Like i said, i whitelisted this site in my adblocker in support of the site when asked by Twiz to do so a few years ago.

    Only turned it off on the laptop because recently the site has become unusuable.

    Fix the ads that make the site shit and i will add it back to the whitelist.

    Here is my experience on the phone... notethe add actually covers the line i typing ...

    You should not have to put up with ads that make your browsing a pain. Nobody is suggesting that you should.

    The concept of sycophantism intrigues me, however I don’t quite give a f**k enough to ask.
