    Hey All!

    Thought id drop a message in regards to ad issues... I know this is often a case of my buddy Craigo responding to these but thought id extend an invitation for you to drop any feedback/issues/suggestions directly to me.

    Everything will be taken into consideration but this is more for remnant advertising that may be causing an issue (e.g the Clash of Clans mobile banner that opened up the app store without warning).

    It is my job to get these blocked for you! my priority is that you have a comfortable browsing experience, it may be impossible to run without advertising but that doesn't mean we can't remove problem ads.

    All feedback is appreciated! I do my very best to maintain the networks ads swiftly and appropriately so in short I Am Here To Help .

    Many Thanks
    Ben

    I'd like a cup of tea, if there's one going?

    If you could set out fixed spaces upon page load to prevent all that jumping about it would be good.

    Plus, free the portable view one!

    Thanks for raising this thread :)

    I can only view and enjoy the site when set to "mobile" even when not on my phone. No matter what browser if I have it on HD it runs awfully, almost totally broken, I think it has a lot to do with the ads or it is an amazingly coincidence of not

    This. Fed up of going into the wrong thread or looking at peoples profiles because the text jumps about when the ads have finished loading.

    Surely your top priority is to sell advertising space? Like, if you stopped doing that because you were blocking ads for us you'd probably be sacked or something.

    I think this was fixed a week or two back on the mobile view.

    Visiting EG on my Android phone. I visit the main site, five seconds until Google Play starts with Candy Crush (or something the like). Back. I tap on an article, five seconds until Google Play opens with Candy Crush. Back. I click on comments, fice seconds until Google Play opens with Candy Crush. Back. I post a comment, five seconds until Google Play opens Candy Crush.

    I can see that EG needs ads, but this is horribly annoying. Annoying to the point that I don't want to use EG's mobile site anymore. Really, it's dreadful. Stop that.

    The jumping issue is something we have recognised yet require the dev time to get corrected. Our tech team have prioritized this and as soon as they can will be correcting this for you.

    Will let my superiors know about the portable view.. however this has only recently been deactivated. We should be optimizing the ads to display static versions for these browsers hopefully maintaining low CPU usage.

    Always happy to talk about these things :)

    Always let me know the following if you encounter these issues again:

    - The ad in question
    - What you are browsing on
    - Browser version
    - What territory are you browsing from

    Would love to get you back on the HD version of the site.

    Ad trafficker. Now there's a cool title. It makes it sound as if you're smuggling ads into the country by stuffing them down your pants to go through airport security at great risk to your personal liberty.

    My top priority is making sure browsing capability remains unaffected by the ads we have running in the background.

    I believe the team in charge of selling the ads do a great job of finding video game related ads which as a gamer my self I find pretty bearable. Not to mention I got your guys back when it comes to ads that don't perform as they should which will get refused and resupplied by the advertiser.

    The ads which can get blocked like the Clash of Clans ones won't be prioritised over our community.

    These are the type of ads I will remove for you.. because it is clearly disrupting your enjoyment of the site.

    Seems alright to me, no Pet Rescue Saga redirects at all over the weekend so I assume it's fixed. Thanks you :)

    @DFawkes There was a number of ad content emails over the weekend which I was on top of so is one we are going to have to pay close attention to.

    Appreciate the communities support on this one.
