Can the Admin fix this site!


I am sick and tired Of seeing this everytime some one posts a photo on a thread. This site is not Ipad friendly by even the stretch of the imagination! Ever since they switched to the "new format" about as good as the New Flickr design. Please fix it! and No I will not use the app for the I pad it sucks more then my shop vac.

I can't even visit this site with my smartphone - half the stuff isn't visible. The "apps" suck too, I'd rather not read the site than suffer through using those.

If on a computer - user Chrome/Firefox and install Adblock to make those ads go away. That doesn't help me on my phone or tablet though.

Well there are only two possibilities after this being screwed up for months. They (1)either don't know how to fix it or (2) they just don't care.
Whichever it is, it's killing this forum. The number of posters seems to be way down from before. It's a shame, because the mods do a great job here. And catch all the flack.

Well there is one way to fix it! Go back to the old format and stop trying to be all hip hop cool!

I quit two forums because of the ad screen movements, just saw one here- today. Seems like this site is getting worse..... why did you sell, Nathan.... lol. When I read, I don't expect to have to see movement in other areas, I watch television for that... or go outside. Gary

In my personal opinion, I think the admins are in over their heads. I think they bought this forum and are not well versed in the software. I am just an old floor installer and understand much of the software on the forum that I run. It isn't that difficult. Of course, the people who own the forum are a couple of techs who understand all of it. As I posted before, the owners of my forum gave posters the option of hiding all the ads on the right side 1/3 of the forum and the forum expanded back to full size. They say that hiding the ads does not affect the income from those ads. I don't understand why that option is not offered here.

It does the same on Chrome on my Google Nexus 7 tablet. There is something definitely screwed up with the CSS.

I'm sure they have the technology. Why we're being ignored is beyond me.
