    Probably just locally saved from an old version. I had that happen once before I cleared my local cached images and files.

    Morning - seems like the small, square video ads partway down the page on the left hand side keep dragging my window down so I can goggle at them in all their glory. Is pretty annoying. What's the EG line on these?

    EDIT: specifically, seems to be a Scholl ad that does it.

    @simiankid Is it a video ad causing this issue?

    @bennyw01 Hola!

    Yep, it's the Scholl video ad that's causing the issue. (Note, I have Adblock, but it's disabled on EG!).

    Here's a screen cap of the offending ad

    @simiankid I believe I have removed this now, please let me know if it pops up again and I will dive deeper. Thanks for enabling us!

    @bennyw01 How rude of me not to say thanks! Cheers!

    Sadly, the same ad (i.e. the mid-left video square) is stealing focus again, but this time with exciting Dettol content.

    @bennyw01 thanks mister! EG's one of the few places where I keep the adblocker off, so I appreciate the efforts you guys make to make it a pleasant place to be : )

    Considering the multiple ethical concerns and not-insignificant scandals surrounding websites selling CS:GO skins, is it really in eurogamer's best interests to have a giant banner ad advertising a skin-selling website?

    Might as well get a few quid out of it before they all get blocked from the steam api.

    @bennyw01 I'm afraid not. If it shows up again, I'll let you know.

    So your still blocking Abp/Ublock origin and forcing people to view the ads.

    this is what i get when i load a page with ublock active

    You are seeing this page because ads cannot be shown

    @bennyw01 Seems a bit weird the site having full page Destiny 2 ads featuring 'you tubers' who directly compete with EG's own YT channel.

    I've noticed that the clickbait ads have started to appear again at the bottom of the articles, but are from other liars as apposed to Revcontent. One is some shit about health insurance or something and has a screenshot from an obscure Cameron Diaz film (with her face hidden under her fake blonde hair) called the Holiday. Don't ask me why I know the film because it's atrocious.

    Edit; edited my terrible spelling.
