Ads appearing mid page of forums, between posts


I'm okay with the ads at the top and the side...but today the "Footprints" rehab ad keeps appearing after a post mid page of each forum I have been on. I will click on a topic to read and there will be 3 or 4 posts (or more) then the ad, then more posts. It's distracting and a little imposing, I think.

Just thought I'd mention it, I have never experienced this before.

When I came back to check what I wrote, another ad "Transformation by the Gulf" is right under my first post.

Maybe the ads are everywhere now but I haven't seen it before so just thought I'd report it in case it's a mistake?

I only get adds like that when I'm not logged on which I've been unable to do for months on my phone unless there's wifi. Forum used to work great.

EDIT, appears we can log in again!

I am seeing the ads, too.

Also, the Youtube button isn't working for me.

yes, i have the ad in between forum posts also.
And the ad spaceon the right side has been increased, which decreases the actual post space.

i think we all understand there are companies in the recovery industry sponsoring this site, but when they have ads this intrusive , it really is disruptive and i feel like i'm just helping along a vehicle for making lots of money off desperate people.

I haven't seen the ads in between posts, but did notice that the ad space on the right side seems wider than before.

Hello,

The ads that used to be only visible to non-logged in readers were recently changed to appear for everyone. The ads seek to help those needing resources, and help keep SR running. If you would like, you might be able to block the ads from appearing by installing AdBlocker on your browser.

Thank you,
Emily
