Typically I use my phone (android). I'm going to give ad blocker another try.

They may be considered "acceptable" ads.   By default adblock will allow those.

I'll just put this here rather than start a new topic.

Is it just me, or is the site really slow these days? I installed an ad blocker on my phone and I might as well not bother, as it takes forever to load anything. My PC at home has an ad blocker and this site is the slowest of any that I visit. Is this a problem on my end or something else?

When you say "app", are you referring to the MGS app or the tapatalk app?  If so, support for those has been dropped and they aren't usable anymore.   The only way to access the forum is via the website.   You can do this on a tablet/phone just like you would on a computer.

It might be a little slower for me, but nothing horrible.

Have you tried an ad blocker? I read the forum on my phone going through Ad Blocker plus browser and it has reduced the ads significantly. I still get one occasionally at the bottom of the page, but it's not like trying to get on through Chrome or Firefox.

I used my phone yesterday to view the forum, which I rarely do, and found it almost unworkable. Ads sitting over the top of topics/links I wanted to click on made it impossible. I did manage to open the ad several times though. Probably provided a bit of extra revenue😅

If we need to use ad blockers isn't that a sign that there's too many ads?

Hell, the ads are so brutal at this point I’d pay like 20$ a year to be a premium forum member with an ad free experience. Make it happen.

Yes. To me, the ads have become super annoying since the latest update a few months ago. They effect the loading speed, especially of the main forum page and I have had similar experiences as you on my phone. I have since downloaded an ad blocker that is very effective for the stock Samsung browser and Yandex browser, but really don't like that it's necessary.

@jlukes posted while I was typing - I'm in full agreement. I'd gladly pay to make the ads go away. Maybe just take a % of donations forum members make to MGS to reduce/eliminate the volume of ads? Just a thought.

I can't say I know much about the ad blockers available for iPhone as I'm am Android user. I have to correct myself if I said I use Ad Block Plus, I use Ad Block Browser to get on the forum. I'm not sure if it's available in the Apple store as I didn't see it. Hopefully someone will figure out the ad problem on the site and get rid of it, is pretty aggravating.

I've definitely been noticing a ton more pop up banners from my mobile lately... The one on the bottom I can typically exit out of no problem but the last week or so there's been ads that show up on the bottom but every couple seconds will create a sort of frame all the way around the 4 edges of the screen. There's no way to exit out of the banner, and quite often disables the ability to click any links on the page. I need to refresh the page and quickly find the link before the ad starts gumming things up again🙄

Yup. It makes replying to posts very cumbersome. 
 

Mods need to do something about the ads. I get needing the revenue, but not when it impacts the user experience so often

I'm on Android, and I'm using the Chrome app. I occasionally use my desktop and have some ad blockers that seems to clear things up on the desktop experience for me.

Yeah, I'm totally with you. I definitely understand that money talks, but it's definitely impacting my experience in a noticeably negative way. All the more reason to donate to MGS, if in fact that will limit ads instead of just add more cash flow on top of ad revenue.

Yes I was having the issues on chrome on my iPhone and switched to safari and added an ad blocker, as suggested by guys on here. I have no more banners or ads and the speed is much better. Maybe check the App Store fore ad blockers, most aren’t for chrome which sucks, and try a different browser with an ad blocker for the forum alone. I use chrome for everything but the forum, annoying to do but it works!
