Drop down ads

Postby john2189 » Tue Sep 14, 2021 8:54 pm

Hi I’ve been getting drop down ads lately,is this a forum or my iPhone problem? Here are two screenshots If it’s my iPhone how do I stop them? I don’t have them on my other forums.
I have ad blocker app on my phone now but looks like it’s not working.

Hey John,

I don't think anything is wrong with your iPhone. Google has been running some test ads on the site this week. I'll request they stop at the end of the week so they can get their test results.

I've always believed there is a very "fine" balance of ads to content ratio to help pay for this sites daily costs and yet provide a pleasant experience for our members.

Let me know if any of them break the site for you or anyone else.

Thanks,
Dennis

This is a very good site. Do you have a way to make a small donation?

If you go to the pdf manuals section there is a link to make donations.
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

I find the forum unbearable without an ad blocker.

I use AdGuard on my iPhone. Seems to work for me. Forum is still currently slow, though.

Very slow loading up or responding. Frequently shows not connected. Back up a bit then the site will slowly reload.
I have an excuse. CRS.
