Why have I started getting a Ladbrokes advert at the top of the screen? Very annoying. I'm signed in.

Anyone else seeing this? Or am I special? Don't answer that.

The mind really does boggle what google search or forum post prompted that one!

Mine changed to “aarke carbonator. Sparkling water makers”

not me… I’ve already got a soda stream.


I can only assume Dan is fiddling with the forum code again

Everyone must have more interesting lives than me.

I'm being offered admin jobs at the company I currently work for.

I’ve got an ad blocker…. Still showing up

AdBlocker Ultimate worked well for me in the past. Think it limited advertising to banners from forum sponsers.

The other issue is forum advertising permissions. I reckon most people will just click accept, but it pays to take the few mintues needed to go through it all properly - after that you're original settings will stick, but any updates mean going through and setting permissions for new advertisers.

Definitely seems to be a far greater issue on mobile devices than on a laptop, especially if not logged in. I get around it all by bunging the forum a few quid - obviously not everyone will want to, but it seemed reasonable when I'd learned so much for free.

I got loads of ads from an online clothes website called Revolve, got all these ads with women in their twenties wearing nice clothes and more often than not in lingerie or bikinis as the other half has been clothes shopping online again...
