Is it just me or are those ads on the side of the screen interfering with other members putting up posts etc? Whoever designed it has done a bad job. They - the ads - are taking up a quarter of the screen and over lapping into the writing area. angry.gif

It has been changing all day. I like the way they fiddle with it then jusg bugger off and leave it.

On my computer and laptop the forum is squashed up on the left with a quarter of the screen white and then the ads.... and the ads half obscure the writing area. It is really annoying.

No such problems on my Apple PC. Ads on the right quarter of the screen.

Thanks for that; maybe it affects some computers. But it is really bad on mine. I wish they leave things alone until they know what they are doing. Starting a job and then half finishing it is bad professionalism. I've even got half the writing cut off; the writing from the forum.

Something not quite right, certainly, as on my screen I've lost a word or two on the right from GMR regarding police activity in Northbrook St today. Luckily, I'd left the scene before they arrived laugh.gif

They've been fiddling with it all this afternoon; the ads have been in different places with even different ads. They must have said halfway through their fiddling "oh, look at the time... we'll leave it and come back Monday." Which week, month or year is anybody's guess laugh.gif

I don't have any problem. There's an add right at the bottom, but it doesn't interfere. If there is any difference, then it is likely to be browser dependant.

Grr! I thought it must be those poor benighted souls who use Internet Explorer. A few minutes ago it was fine in Firefox, with the ads at the bottom of the screen. So I fired up IE and sure enough got the ads on the right.

I went back to Firefox and blow me down, now the ads are on the right. with everything squashed up. No problem with losing any text, though.

Perhaps they are working on it as we speak...

It must effect people differently. Thanks.

I doubt they are working on it now. They were doing it this afternoon; you can tell. They were cocking everything up. laugh.gif

Yes, if anyone is reading this, don't Ctrl+F5 and flush the cache. BTW, post a complaint to the admins, I have.

I said...

Come on Admins sort the advert out on this site is it is crap and annoying!

I think they were more interesting in the money the adverts can bring in than the welling being of the members on here.

It seems worse today; the forum is squashed up on the left; half the screen is taken up with just white space and just two adverts on top. Was the price worth paying to get a few quid in the till?

Perhaps we should boycott this site for its incompetence, or greed? The people that are responsible for this site clearly don't know what they are doing, or have a forum solution that is not robust enough to cope with inserting adverts properly.
