    Just got some weird cartoon sex game pop up on here - asking "are you 18 or older", I clicked "no", and pointless question later it's granted me access to registration :joy::joy::joy:

    Great security there, whatever it was called. Something Empire.

    Yeah, just logged in as normal.

    It was a bit unusual as it was a near-full page advert, so actually I'd thought it might be a virus or something on my computer.

    However, I got another one for something way more innocuous a couple of clicks later, again, nearly full page, closed it down, and then re-subscribed to BT to do away with them all.

    If you have an ad blocker you don't see any adverts at all.

    Or if you become a forum supporter you don't receive any adverts and help contribute to running costs

    Any chance of getting rid of the new drop down adverts? They're an absolute pain in the arse.

    I can cope with the adverts in-between different posts but these are an absolute joke.

    Failing any help and the predictable "why don't you subscribe" answers does anyone know if a decent ad blocker might get rid of them?

    There isn't a way to just disable those kinds of ads. I can turn off the in-between page load ones (which are off) or the main ones (Which are obviously on) but I can't turn the individual types in either grouping off.

    TBH I'm assuming you are on mobile and I can understand why because as someone who buys ads from google (including some targeted here and other football sites) on mobile actual view rate are well below the number of impressions ads are having, let alone click-through rates on the normal ads are awful as you are generally scrolling completely past them to get to the content and I suspect googles under pressure from the biggest advertisers to find ways to at least get people to view the ad properly otherwise its them pissing money away

    No worries, I just visit the site through an ad blocker now. All fixed and a much better experience as its editing out most of @Bronco@Bronco posts too :thumbup:

    I’ve scrolled from to bottom of the current page and counted a total of 9 ads @SimonW@SimonW. can this be looked into?

    Accidently logged on through my usual phone Internet and a single page of posts had SEVEN adverts. It simply is unusable and must be putting off the casual or new user.

    I get that you're saying the site needs then to keep afloat but imo it feels like nothing more than a money making scheme and benefiting from BB and Ed's hard work.

    Unpopular opinion possibly but that doesn't make it any less true.
