    I find it pretty much unusable on my phone without using an ad blocker app.

    I only get pop ups on the phone and they're not too bad. I don't get any on the laptop.

    I have 2 add blockers on my phone, and get zero popups.:) The only add I get is the rolling banner at the top of the page.
    I pretty much exclusively use my phone these days, the laptop being confined to video and picture editing, and music copy duties. :)

    Exactly why I splashed (what is) a minimal amount of cash to Ali :D

    Since the site changed, many years ago now, I've been running my own CSS (userContent.css) on the Landyzone website to make it more usable - but I deliberately didn't try and take out the Google Ads cos it was the way LZ made a bit of cash to finance the site. Now this Full Member facility has completed the usability :D Its almost as user friendly as me Freelander :eek:

    On phone tend to get one advert straight away then every 10 or so clicks. just press the little x or close option. Just annoying when they load later and the pages keep moving, not sure if lz does that though.

    Having said all.

    If you have a powerful modern phone it's not too bad but on my cheapy older phone the ads killed it and made the site unusable. I had no choice but to use Adblock on my phone before I became a paid up member. ;)
