Agreed. I have raised that issue with the moderators though, especially the drop down box using mobile (safari on iPhone) When I use google chrome for mobile, I don’t get that drop down box so possibly an apple/ safari issue? One thing I will add (excuse the pun) is that advertisements do help fund the running of the forum.

it does depend on the device/OS. On my work W10 PC it's horrible, not so much on my Mac at home as it runs at a much higher resolution so the adds have more space to play with.

Using Chrome on an Android tablet, the forum pages are flooded with adverts, todays adverts are for Women's coats, and Lens Baby junk

Not been on the forum for awhile but it's far worse than it used to be.

The bottom ad is the worst. I had been allowing ads on this site to help Martin, but it is just too much.

I do, but the annoying bottom one has been replaced with a less annoying one.
