      new ads?

      Pages seem fairly slow to load today, the page comes up but the ads seem to take a while and hold the rest of the page up ?
      is it just me ? or has anyone else found this

      also some of the ads on the header look a bit suspect to me (not the sort of ad i have noticed on skyuser before)

      Re: new ads?

      Hi Richard

      The Ad Agency have changed over their Ad Delivery System, hence why we have had losy looking ads since the 1st April. The dodgy looking one is probably a back filler, ie if you spend plenty of time on the forums, it tracks that you have seen x amount of a particular one and then shows you like a stock ad, one that is zero paying.

      As for slow loading I will monitor it, as there is nothing we can do for that, the forums should load as per normal and the ads appear later, as we bounce them off our Adserver.

      If any ads cause concern feel free to list the URL and I will request for removal, however we do not normally do that unless they are linked to a red site, as per McAfee Site Advisor.

      Hi Rich.
      I agree with you, the pages are slower to load.

      Hi All,

      I also seem to be having trouble with the site being very slow recently. My mouse curser is flashing for about 6 seconds on every page before I can do anything

      This is weird, on FF I have no issues whatsoever.

      Re: new ads?

      could be a flash player problem ? i download and update anything at home, but at work i have not downloaded the latest one.

      (may have nothing to do with it at all, i know the best part of nothing about most of the programmes on my PC )
