Sorry Chris, that was the forum, I'm guessing under a minute.

Copy that! We'll check out what caused it. Thanks!

Possible feature suggestion: WEBM embeds/upload. WEBMs are similar to Gifs, but can contain sound. They are popular on a wide variety of forums.

The adverts I see on this website are way to inappropriate. I do not need an arab or thai friend. How do I stop this distressing nonsense?

You should be able to close them with the X, but I would suggest you use adblocker in your browser as you're a L2 member and you shouldn't have to see any ads.

That one ad placement (the rest are set ads - and obviously not the ones you're talking about) is Adwords. It's supposed to be based on your location and your browser (per cookies and such every site leaves in your browser). A bit like how Amazon knows to display PC hardware ads if you've been recently shopping for PC stuff.

I have told Mark about some clearly pointless ads (and in your case, totally inappropriate ads) getting through per other people mentioning it (most will never see them I'm guessing or there would be a riot), but I would say Adwords' way of targetting the right ads is completely broken and I want adwords replaced with something else on the site, make no mistake about it - as it's literally like placing s--t on the page. Trust me, I'm angry about this as this started months (if not years) ago. It should be replaced with a better provider.

We're aware the forum is being a bit slow right now. Doesn't go down, but sometimes you have to wait a few seconds for the next page you click on to load. Mark is working on it.

Should be back to full speed again. A lot of you wouldn't have noticed it unless - like me - you run around the forum like a crazy man, but was worth noting. Please post on this thread if you notice it return.....making sure it's the forum and not you going under a tunnel or something! :)
