Every time I click on a different page within summitpost I get a huge pop-up add at the bottom of my screen.

A new advertiser recently asked to work with us. We accommodated, but sometimes the ads at the bottom of the screen were the wrong size. I believe it was fixed, but it seems not. What size ad are you seeing? Can you take a screenshot?

Big banner across the bottom of every screen. Very annoying. Have to manually close it for each new window. Today there's a new "feature": two bottom ads, each one of which you have to click on a little box to close. Truly horrible. I though there was a move to have an ad-free site for those willing to pay? I would.

The biggest issues I see with the new ads is that it makes it hard to sign a summit log. It covers up the submit button. Sometimes closing the ad makes it work and sometimes it doesn't.

I have to agree, I noticed it happening a lot more recently. The adds end up resizing the page or completely moving everything once it finally loads. Two adds per page, everytime you click a new link, open a new photo, etc. As I type this the add at the top keeps resizing and glitching the screen. This site has invaluable information, it is incredibly buggy though with these new adds, desktop and Mobile.
