    What is going with this proliferation of ads in the last few days? There have been a few instances where the forums has suddenly turned in to a letter-box with ads taking the top and bottom thirds of the screen, now, pretty much any time I begin scrolling, I'm met with a full page non removable ad for Beano.

    As much as I am always ready for, as they call it, "full time lulz", I would prefer being able to actually browse through the the message boards.

    @Niall will have to check this one out. It doesn't sound like things are running as they should.

    What device/OS/Browser are you using?

    Probably worth clearing the browser cache, closing the browser and trying again just in case it is something simple.

    That definitely shouldn’t be happening. Can you please send some screenshots so I can track down these ads and remove them?

    So I'll be scrolling down a page when this happens...

    I then have to rotate the screen to be able to close the ad, which then drops to the bottom as seen below.

    Those ads should now (hopefully) be blocked. Please let me know if you see them, or similar, again @Jericholyte2 @Phurry.
