I am finding the "new" random advert generator that pops up at the bottom of the screen exceedingly frustrating and annoying in equal measures. I am spending more time scrolling down and when I want to use the functions at the bottom of the screen the bloody things keep popping up to block access.

 

Is there any way to disable it?

 

I have tried clicking on the X to the top right but it only disappears for a few seconds.

 

If this carries on much longer my visits to the forum will be reducing to once a week or even once a month!

I opened a NEW topic because although the banner adverts at the foot of the page are a pain in the arse I do not consider the content "dodgy" as they all seem to be for reputable companies!

 

For information - I tried paging down but all that happens is the BANNER ADVERT stays in situ and the stuff at the bottom of the page that was visible disappears behind an advert for Fundraising or whatever. I tried clicking on the X that appears above the advert but as soon as I do any action (e.g. press Post for this reply, another advert pops up!

 

Personally I never had any problem with embedded adverts! Which we appear to continue to have. So can I suggest that you either go for one option or the other rather than continue with this utterly ridiculous waste of space?

Oh and another thing; having just moved off to another forum I didn't get an advert at the bottom of the screen just a BLACK BLOCK where the advert should be. It didn't have the X to remove it so basically quarter of my screen was blacked out for no apparent reason. Not only is it annoying it isn't working properly!
