    Pop up adverts driving me mad

    Iíve always really enjoyed this forum. BUT recently Iím finding the constant pop up adverts really annoying. They detract from my enjoyment and certainly reduce the frequency I use the forum.

    banners and side adverts are fine but this is too intrusive for me.

    uBlock Origin is what my son put on my PC for me and it seems to do a really good job

    There are no pop-up ads for me, none at all. This is when on chrome browser, windows PC.

    On tapatalk there are loads, and you have to wait 5 seconds or so for the X to appear so you can close it. I find that really annoying. Thing is, I don't even look at the ads so no idea what they are for, I'm just focussed on the top corner of the screen waiting for the X to appear.

    Hi, Sorry about that. Google adsense applied a revenue optimisation experiment, I just told them to stuff it. It should be off now or within an hour or so. Thanks.

    I just clicked on the three dots (top left in the pop up) and got into Google as services. Scrolled down to "yourAdChoices" and "opt out of all". We'll see if that makes a difference to the pop ups.

    ...nope didn't work

    This is seriously frustrating. What a load off tosh!
