I've noticed that all the images I've posted, which are hosted on my personal website, all stopped displaying on the site sometime in the last month. The "Insert Image from URL" option just results in an error whenever I try editing and relinking to those images.

 

Certainly the issue could be on my end, but I thought I'd ask if there was some relevant change to the boards before I give up and reupload everything to Imgur. I'd appreciate any info you might have.

I'm getting similar issues posting images. It seems like the forum no linger accepts images with URLs from sites that do not have an SSL certificate. So images with URLs that start with http:// will not display in the forums anymore, but, URLs starting with https:// will.

 

Can a moderator confirm this please? Also, is this going to be forum policy going forward? Thanks.

Are you using Chrome? That's not a board issue.

 

Ah, okay. That makes sense. Thank you.

Anyone else getting a ridiculous amount of pop ups that are making the site almost completely in usable?

The mobile ads that take over the entire border of the screen are back.

I had it looping this morning, and couldn’t do anything without closing the ad

Side banners / mobile ads have been noticeably strong the last few days. It's making navigation on the board difficult at best.

To pile on the ad comments, this is the current mobile experience for me:

It is quite difficult to navigate to say the least.

I’ve experienced those “background” ads where you have to scroll up to actually continue browsing the site. The border ads are really annoying as well and most of the ads at the top of the screen have caused me to accidentally log out when trying to look at notifications. It also doesn’t help when the ads cause the screen to jump all over the place. Overall it’s a pretty big nuisance trying to navigate the boards and tests my patience a lot.

Watch yourselves... you might get talked about on BASS if you don't stop complaining.

Is what it is. It’s a problem that’s been brought up numerous times by multiple different members. A solution doesn’t seem to be in the picture either. If anything, it’s getting worse.

If you're talked about and don't listen, does a tree make a sound when it falls?

 

Or something 🙂

We gotta talk about something while we stitch doilies, eat coffee cake, and sip our tea.

The top ad on mobile has more than doubled, and between it and the bottom ad, the actual viewable space is nearly a perfect square on an iPhone 11. Then there’s the ad in the middle you need to scroll through. Unless Acura cars hijacks the entire screen with the border ad that grows before you are allowed to dismiss it. 
 

glad I’m not the only one bitching. I know the mods can’t do anything about the ads, but for anyone reading that can do anything, why does this site need more ads on it than any non-porn site on the internet? It really is worse than any other site I visit, and that’s not hyperbole.  Desktop and mobile.

I don’t know why, but I’ve been craving a Dr. Pepper lately.

Same.  I just ordered enough Sea Foam engine treatment to keep my new Acura running through the next 50 pandemics.  By then, the Medicare supplemental insurance I purchased will be kicking in.  Guess the ads work!  

 

Seriously though - those are on mobile.  My Ad Block that I had to use on this site on desktop is saying it's blocked 165 ads on this exact page while I've been typing this.  In contrast, a "black-Friday deals" site that I have open has had 17 blocked, and it pretty much exists for ads.

 

The combo of the ads and the sign-in bug really beg the question as to whether the ad-service or software are really the best choices for the site.
