Egg Timer on this Site

Post by knebby on Wed 1 Apr 2015 - 22:49

Anybody else getting the 'loading' egg timer whirring away all the time they're on this site (on the computer, not the mobile) and anybody know how to stop it??

No, it loads fine for me - but admin really should do something about that shocking triangular pointer. Wink

There are some adverts on the site, one of which could have an egg timer? I saw one the other day informing me I'd won an iPad, another telling me I was the 1,000,000th visitor, and another telling me I had a virus and needed to 'Click here' to eliminate it. So it is possible the egg timer is another ad trying to confuse you into buying something you neither want, nor need!

Normally I don't see the ads. I have ad-blockers on my main computer web browsers and on Firefox for my mobile and tablet. Sadly, I can't post a message using Firefox (for mobile) as the colours of the text entry area are white background, with white text so have to resort to Chrome, which does show the adverts. On Sheila's iPhone, the ads are there all the time.

Didn't you get rid of the adverts on the old site, once people had logged in?

Firefox blocks the ads online, but the ads show up on phones sadly, I've tried adding an ad blocker on my one but to no avail, wont be getting another smart phone if it wont allow to block ads

Firefox for andriod blocks ads on my Andriod. It doesn't let me see what I type as I post here though, I have to try and do it 'blind'. Forgive any typos!

I did yes, though Forumotion run a points system (paid for) that means you may need to have bought (or earned) enough points before this option becomes available.

That's fair enough. I know you had the site running for a couple of years before I joined, but just thought I'd ask.
