Slider Ad replacement

It has been brought to our attention that on the post pages (not Premium) that there is a slider ad. We are aware of that, however, for mobile users, (especially tablets running android/chrome) they struggled to close the ad as the close button went off the edge of the screen and could not be resized.

For now we have replaced the floating ad with a standard embedded ad between the posts - you will notice it it says 'sponsors' beside it.

This should now solve the problem. However, slider ads and floating ads like the original are difficult to block with adblockers. People who visit often block ads - but they are an important part of the ecosystem. We are therefore placing noscript codes that will appear to those not running java that will hopefully remind those people who 'block' this. There are no pop-ups or sliders in the forum for now. we therefore hope you will white-list this forum.
