    For now, scroll up when you hit the alerts button and you'll see everything.

    Working on a fix.

    I get that, Hoosier. They annoy me too. I’m hoping that the powers that be change things, but at the end of the day it’s just not a deal breaker for me. That’s all I’m trying to get across. Rather have the ads then no FL.

    Wow I found this forum last week for the first time and loved it.. now can’t even read the forum with all of the adds side bottom, all over the place. I’ll come back when they are gone. Sad because this was such a great forum with a place for like minded people to post and share...very distracting now.

    Too much hassle and distraction for me. I'll check back with everyone in a few weeks. Maybe by then, things will be sorted out...I hope.

    Somehow they got the idea I don't speak English. This is quite amusing.

    Ads are now in the middle of posts!

    It is out of control now. I have not seen anything like that on any other forum.

  9. The adverts are very distracting...maybe a good excuse to take a break. I know they can get this stuff under control. I’m certainly not angry and I understand that the site doesn’t have a team of full-time webmasters. I’ll just give it some time to see how it resolves.

    Great bartenders here and I’m sure it wasn’t a conscious decision to have the ads become so distracting.

    Just got on now and I don't actually see any ads. I have an ad blocker browser I'm using.

    Seeing the adds in some posts yesterday I thought we had been inundated with trolls. :D
    This is very reminiscent of Photobucket in it's heyday.........the next step will be blocked browsers.
    This post was bought to you courtesy of Google ads.

    I usually don't use ad blockers because the forums are supposed to have a source of income. But if this happens in this form, then it's time for an ad blocker again. Too bad.

    Good morning. The adds, the adds! I stopped the annoyance this morning with by using an add blocker.

    I read on-line that the adds can be controlled by ad blockers. After hecking with Apple (using a MacBook) User Forums I installed ABP (AdBlockerPlus). Typically I use Firefox as my internet browser. Easy to get to work and this morning - no annoying adds. (FYI: Typing this response I see that AdBlockerPlus has blocked 6 adds so far).

    As a good citizen to The Fedora Lounge I would love to be able to support their internet presence and the admin expenses. I do not know of another option. If another option is available please yell.

    Enjoying an add free experience, Eric -
