  • Advert at bottom of page

    I know we have had problems in the past with adverts at the bottom of the page refusing to close. Sometimes it will and sometimes it won't close. It is quite annoying and sometimes I just give up and leave the site. ARRRRRRRHHHHHHHH!

    I'm on a PC, so I don't know if phones/tablets are different, but if I hover the cursor over the ad, its http appears in the bottom left corner sitting just above the task bar. I move the cursor till that http disappears, then click to dismiss the ad.

      I agree, it's a pain, especially the dead space it creates, once it finally closes. This site really is quite shoddily managed, still advertising the August edition of GYO for goodness sake!

        I’m reading on my phone just now and oddly it never has that advert at the bottom of the page, I do get it on my kindle and it’s a real pain trying to click it of without ending opening the advert
        No problem on my PC Adblock plus soon gets rid of it.

          It certainly does seem to play up a bit. its better on the PC than on a phone / Tablet.

          I took a break from the forum for a while as other things in life took over. I have however noticed that since coming back, the forum really doesn't seem as active as it once did. There are some very noticeable "big players" missing of late.

          Did i miss something?

            Not really, some folks just moved on.
            If I'm not on here, I'm probably fishing.

              I find zooming in on the screen before closing the advert makes it easier to close it.

                I am on a desktop and find I sometimes have to scroll the screen up and down a couple of times before it will colse.

                    What is weird is that other sites obviously have similar ads, yet they don't interfere with the workings of the site.

                    Peteyd is right, we seem to have dwindled to a core of not that many active members. But presumably the forum serves its purpose for the owners and visitors.

                          Maybe somebody's experimenting with the design...?

                            Hmm...^^^ who knows...but they usually change it once a month so maybe that's what they are doing???

                            Its only come up once for me today so that's an improvement .

                              I think I have finally found out how to close it. I have been using the point of the arrow but if I aim the point slightly above then close it, it usually works.
