Morning, I have a Samsung S3 and it wouldn't close on that phone, if I used it close to a WI-FI connection it's wasn't too bad but without that WI-FI it just took so long to load it was unusable and at one point froze the phone.
But these things happen, if you get every thing 100% right first time it means you haven't done anything.
This has been an ongoing problem with this site for a long time. I use adblock for Chrome for my desktop, and adblock for IOS on my Iphone and Ipad. (available from the app store) To be honest it is the only thing that makes this site viewable, particularly on mobile devices.
I know all the arguments about ad revenue keeping this forum free, but if the plethora of intrusive ads actually drives site users away then there is no point to them.
I use this site a lot, and if I had to run the gauntlet of the type of ads we have been seeing recently I would certainly go elsewhere. Personally speaking I would be prepared to pay a subscription if the site could be ad free.
"Personally speaking I would be prepared to pay a subscription if the site could be ad free."
Would this increase the contributions already being made on a voluntary basis, by those who do so daily, in answer to other peoples questions and problems. Or will it lead to even less people using or supporting the website?.
"will it lead to even less people using or supporting the website?."
The thing is, with the way the site has been performing recently (slowing to a crawl, intrusive ads on mobile devices) this is going to drive people away out of sheer frustration with not being able to post or double posts or being spammed with numerous intrusive ads.
You either block all the ads on all your devices like I do, or suffer them and quit the site in frustration. There needs to be a happy medium for the site owners and the users.
