Did a change get made for more ads? Seems to be thing up 70% of my screen now.
Yes. It finally prompted me to get an ad blocker.Did a change get made for more ads? Seems to be thing up 70% of my screen now.
Same. Site runs great with uBlock on default settings, on desktop and phone. I clicked off the master switch on it just to see what the fuss was about in this thread, and nearly got whiplash at all the crapola sprayed all over the homepage and how long it took to load. I see *none* of that otherwise...ever, in any scenario. And would never have known it was there without intentionally going out of my way to see what the unfiltered experience looked like.
Presumably the site owner. I tagged him upthread. You can also use the "contact us" button or DM skyrisecities.Who's the owner or person who implemented these?
Do they want more revenue to keep this site up? I'd pitch in for a voluntary donation link or whatever every once in awhile over more intrusive ads.
Why is this grim? You adblock, you get zero ads...*ever*. Not only zero ads ever, but zero trace ever of where the ads would be placed on the board had they ever existed in the first place (i.e. zero functionality breakage to go along with cosmically faster load times). And full control to not only whitelist the sites you *do* want to support with ad revenue, but also choose via the element selector on the context menu to block some intrusive ones (like the button-focus stealers) while leaving others alone on the same site.This is incredibly grim, an absolute site killer and a near perfect representation of the worst case scenario that many of us envisioned when the site changed hands. I don't want to ad block; I actually want to support the few sites that I do visit; this is untenable @SkyriseCities.
