    I understand the need for advertisements but do theybseriously need to be right above where all the links are for all the various forums topics and categories? Gets kinda frustrating to have to wait for them all to load up before I can click on a category or topic. If you don' wait long enough and try to click on something the page will drop down and you hit the ads. If I wanted to click on them then I would...maybe put them all on the bottom of the page? Or have them border the sides and bottom? Geez man. I love this forum but I can honestly say I have gotten off of it earlier than I would have liked because all the multiple flashing and semi slow loading advertisements just get really annoying with the page constantly dropping down every time you load up a new page....there has to be a better layout for the ads....right or wrong?

    You on a pc or phone? I can't say I've experienced this. Right now, I'm on a laptop, when I'm away from home, I'm on my phone, usually using Tapatalk, which has it's own issues sometimes.

    I see ads at the very top, on the very bottom and on the right side. I've never seen ads in the middle of the topic areas.

    Sorry for your troubles but it has to be on your side with your PC, or internet service because I pull the site up with loading in a flash. You might want to clean up your cookies, flies, history, cache, and check your internet speed.

    The only time the ads at the top are a PIA is using my Smartphone because I don't use Tapa whatever.

    I use Blockada on Android and added vaporjoesnetwork.com to the blacklist.

    Honestly this is one of the few places where the ad's do in fact sometimes interest me, however since the ad's are hosted separately it sometimes causes the page to shift as the banner loads. This usually happens just as I'm about to click on something, resulting in me clicking on an unintended link... and that shit can be absolutely maddening.

    I just signed up today but the website is running so slow that I don't know if I want to stay.
    Also - A big problem- my phone says that this is NOT a SECURE website.. and that my information can be stolen through this website, and I wish there was an app that you had instead - or that you would make your page secure.
    Will that.. or a secure app be coming anytime soon? Thanks!

    I'll admit that the ads are pure pita on the phone but the community is worth the bother imo. With 5 fur babies and a dog overtaking my lap the laptop doesn't get much use lately.
