Spring Black Friday Ads


I find them horribly annoying. The way they resize/reformat the page is horrible, whether you are reading something or trying to click on something.

Anyone else having problems with them.

Here they are. The page comes up and after a few seconds the adds load and reformats the page. Notice how the first paragraph changes from 4 lines to 7.

Real annoying if you are reading when it reformats.

I just don't know that I want to do this anymore. They fix one thing and screw up something else. Why don't they just hire someone who has a clue before they kill this forum completely? What a mess.

Install Adblock plus since you are using Firefox. All the ads go away.

Spring Black Friday Ads


Welcome to the world of online advertising folks!
Wonder how much HD paid for this "wallpaper" ad? But I'd rather have these ads target me rather than the "Lancome" ads that kept showing up on my screen. HD should read some of the posts on this site regarding them. Most members don't have a favorable impression of them.

Spring Black Friday Ads


I have no problem with this site earning a few bucks off of advertising. But like the others mentioned, when that advertising interferes with the site itself and literally makes the page resize and reload, that bothers me. This "Spring Black Friday" ad is annoying. In fact, I opened a "reply" window, started to type out a few words, then all of a sudden the ad appeared, resized my window, made my cursor jump and screwed up what I was typing and I had to fix it.

I know there is only so much the admins can do, but can they send a request to the forum software developers to find a way to prevent ads that modify the screens?

I haven't been on this site for a couple of weeks. Am I the only one seeing duplicate Home Depot adds on both sides reducing the size of the viewing pane? Usually they are on the right side only. I understand the need for sponsorship, nothing is free, but am I the only one that finds this really annoying? It really reduces the size of the reading pane on a 16" laptop screen.
