Is anybody else having issues with adverts almost completely covering the screen?

I'm constantly seeing half page adverts giving me about 2 inches of forum available to see, on occasions I've had adverts at the top and bottom making only about a centimetre of the forum visible.

It's making things rather difficult.

Have you got any screenshots? I must confess, the mobile adverts seemed a bit overkill, but I'm hoping to work with @Aviador to build a better advertisement system ;)

I've been having problems with the ads since the latest software update about a week ago but I wasn't aware it was doing that. What platform and browser are you using?

I did that and it solved the problem for about 5 mins or so but it's now happening again. Pretty much every page on the BHX forum is unreadable for me.

I'm on my laptop using Chrome.

I've turned the ads off for the moment so we're up sh*t creek without a paddle.

I only noticed we had a problem yesterday as full page ads were showing and when you scrolled down the ads wouldn't move. I thought I'd cleared the problem yesterday evening but then it reappeared this morning. I spent a further couple of hours trying to tweak the ads this morning and the problem seemed to clear but it's returned this evening.

Anyway folks, those that don't currently choose to upgrade to help us pay for the forum, what you see now is what you normally get with a subscription plus a few permission based extras.

I'm currently testing different advertisement coding. Please let me know if you notice anything out of the ordinary while using the forum.

Yes
I've noticed more 'invasive' adverts recently but as I always use a large iMac desktop screen it's not really a problem to me. It might be on a smaller phone screen I suppose but I only connect to the Internet via my desktop so have no experience of phone screens.
