    I get a few, but they aren't too offensive. The ones that appear in the middle of people's posts can be a bore.
    I think they don't bother me as much as they do some people, because I never look at the forum on a phone, just a laptop which has a decent size screen.
    The other stuff, I have worked out how to use it over time. Do miss the wide range of smilies on the old forum, though, they were good entertainment in their own right.

    I don’t see the problem Goony you are the status bar king like the magical intro Hippo. If they are asking for help there then what chance do they have of posting a thread in the correct place?
    atleast this way they have your to watch over them and me to occasionally have a swig and hijack one or two fur personalised word association

    I'm not offended by em, its just annoying everytime I try to post i see ads. I can see two now replying to you. Do I want to speak ojibwe? I've got no idea what that even means. I soley use my phone to browse now and its tiresome, especially when I click a new page and it brings up a full page ad about something I searched on eBay for a fortnight ago, a survery from Google about colas ive heard of or conferences i do not attend or something random that I have no interest in that I have to click to close. Its just a waste of mobile data and pointlessly time consuming. Im certain that I have never followed a single ad on LZ so these ads are futile.

    I do try to help people when they post a profile post but time and again someone makes a profile post, doesn't realise its not the forum.and never actually posts. And other times I'm just a bit short with em, depends on me mood.

    Afraid I can't help with any of that, except the Ojibwe. They are an Indian tribe in Eastern Canada and the US. I can't speak the language, though.

    I had an ad for it, never heard of em. Now the two ads I can see are for a thinkpad and a jump starter. I like to think I won't have need for either.

    If I remember correctly, they are part of the Huron Nation. Could be wrong. I don't need to speak their language, as I haven't spoken to one for almost 50 years, and he spoke English anyway.

    I do agree about the ads being a waste of space, though. I have never clicked on one either, or bought anything. I find I just blank them out totally, just scroll past without even looking.

    It’s good that you do something when/if you choose.

    I looked back over the thread and saw that I said that I didn't like it, but maybe it would grow on me.

    Well it hasn't, its a terrible design.
    It may be technically superior, but it is presented really poorly. I'm still using an overriding stylesheet I put together when the update was put out (mainly getting rid of all the wasted space, nauseous colour and making posts shorter for less scrolling by making the member info a narrow left column and the content on the right) , makes it a lot better on my PC, but I haven't been arsed to see if I can get it working better on a phone - its almost unusable for me on a phone.

    This is how this post is displayed as standard...

    SiteLayout_Std.jpg

    Aall that space taken up and you can only see 1 tiny post in its entirety.

    This is how I view it...

    SiteLayout_Mine.jpg

    None of those horrible colours and I can see 4 posts in the same space. A lot simpler with a bit of mouse over stuff so the info you rarely want to see is normally hidden and not occupying real estate.
