    Has anyone else noticed that the forums seem to jump up and down quite a bit, in the past few days? I will click on a post, and it will jump up or down several lines. It is only happening on this site.

    That's concerning! What browsers are you both using?

    Here too. Running Firefox on MAC; Flash is up to date. The page *appears* to auto refresh (reload) an awful lot. It seems to do this when the footer ad changes. It doesn't do it every time I visit but sometimes it's often enough to be irritating.

    Website is still jumping. Often I click on a topic and get a different topic because it jumped up or down. Seems to happen when I first open a page, and then behaves normally after 10 or 15 seconds.

    Just to let you know. I have just been trying to reply to a post and the behaviour of the page/site has made it almost impossible.
    I don't know if it's because I'm using Internet Explorer which sites are not too keen on these days but I will give up now.

    Hi there, I'm sorry that you have been having problems. It's challenging as we can't replicate the problem at our end but we are looking into it and I'll let you know as soon as we have more info.

    Quick update. I'm pretty sure it's something to do with the ads. That thing that comes up when I first go on the forum, advising that you use 'custom ads', is there any way of stopping that?
    It seems when the ads switch, the whole page flicks up and down and if in the middle of typing, either wipes out what I'm typing or drops into another part of the post.
    I don't have this happening on any other site.
    Does that give any clues? I guess though, if you can't actually see what's happening on my screen, it's not fixable :confused:

    Oooh, that 'custom ads' warning thing seems to have stopped popping up every time I visit the forum, yippee, thanks if anyone's done something to stop it :)
