I appreciate that my approach isn't particularly a forum discussion rather than a chat over a beer so I'll leave it there but I would also appreciate that moderator expansions are added to posts rather than altered from the original.(obviously forumites don't have that privilege)Andrew Everard said:Expansion, not alteration, in an attempt to clariify my explanation.. Which says to me it's better to try to consider the size of the catflap needing to be constructed, rather than being blinded by speculation about the myhtical origins of the oncoming cat. Or something.Ravey Gravey Davy said:Interesting alteration to your original post,which says to me it's better to hide behind the canvas rather than face the bigger picture, but hey, that happens everywhere.
But please rest assured no-one is hiding behind, or in denial about, anything. Rather, as Andy C has said, we share your frustration, and are stepping up the pressure to get things put right.
And once again, apologies to those users experiencing problems.
I forgot about this, sorry.MajorFubar said:But...like I said in the other recent thread about ads, it doesn't have to be that way. There's a million and one amateur forums out there run on PhP or vBulletin, they don't seem to need half as many pop-up ads as this to stay afloat, and they don't have the same technical issues. Someone presumably at Haymarket has consciously decided that the forum should runs the way it does, including deciding on the number and type of adverts needed to keep the thing financially afloat. Obviously they've not consciously decided to invent the technical issues! But what I'm saying is, it's not like there isn't a solution to either of the site's two main problems (the technical issues and too many ads), it's just, I suspect, there's far too much red tape in the way of adopting one.kevinJ said:The big pop up adds are VERY ANNOYING. But we don't pay for it, the adders do, so I doubt they're going to take them away.
No, this one is about a different annoyance – if only Adblock Plus could solve this one, it would stop us all tearing our hair out in frustration...Alantiggger said:If adverts annoy anyone, anywhere on the net.... just download Adblock Plus. It works a treat.
