    Does anyone else who uses a tablet find it irritating that when you click on your "alerts" you get linked to the advert that is currently just behind / slightly above the alerts button.
    Maybe I'm getting old and cynical but could this be a prime spot for advertisers on the site who conveniently get loads of clicks by people like myself....

    Surely not...?!:cool:

    I find it annoying too....have found the trick is to click just below the alert....seems to work for me on my I pad!

    Thank you very much for posting this, I thought the alerts were just adverts.
    Methinks I need a brain transplant.
    I could cope with the old style forum and a computer, when this thing updates I am a lost soul.
    I'm just a simpleton at heart, and a deaf one at that.
    Anyways I have read my alerts proper, thanks again.

    I have absolutely no problem in paying a tenner to join what is an informative and entertaining forum...

    Having paid the tenner it does irritate me that despite a "steady finger"...most of the time !...that I find myself redirected to sites advertising something.

    Presumably these sites pay something for their position on the forum..

    Maybe not a problem...not a biggie...who cares?

    Don't seem to have that problem if you view in portrait rather than landscape (y)
