On this one page alone, on my phone, I see 19 ads. It’s making this site impossible to read.
Still having this problem. I’ve 50 pages of watched threads. Over half of them say no threads to display when I click on them. It seems to be the pages from 20 onwards.
I noticed that this morning.I posted previously that when I have to x out an ad, the thread jumps forward a page or two. While this still happens, I also have found that many (most? all?) threads I go to skip many posts or pages, as though the software that used to track where I last read a thread now maybe tracks when I last read any thread, and pulls me to that point in time on all threads?
Same happened to me. I had to press enter about 10 times to.make the text box bigger, so I coukd see what I type. Inrarely post anymore, but wanted to participate because webleuths is partnering in a citizen sleuth podcast and I wanted to support it. But man, it was very hard to type a detailed, well thought out response when I couldn't even see what I wrote.. and there was no x or close..Once I start entering text in the reply box, I only have a line or two visible to see what I am typing, because it is obscured by an ad, which keeps changing. (See my screen cap). It is making it more challenging to write a post, to the point if I am not really eager to join in the discussion, I would just leave it.
I wonder who else would want to fight this typing battle if not already a WS regular? Any stats for new members posting after the update?
The other thing is, with all the animated ads the page is draining my phone battery fast. I can't spend too much time on WS now.
I hope this new strategy will be reviewed soon. There ought to be a balance between revenue, and usability of the site.
