    What's with the spammy audible pop up?

    I use an iPad to browse the site, and every time I visit I'm getting a full screen advert for audible.co.uk. It wouldn't be so bad if I got it once a day or so but it's happening every time I go back and forth to the main page to read an article or come back to the site after leaving it in an open tab and browsing elsewhere..

    Hi,

    There are no adverts running via PSU for that site. We have a total Titanfall takeover in the UK. I've double-checked our ad servers and there are no other ads running. Via mobile and tablets you often get spammy adverts. It's nothing to do with PSU. Try clearing your history/cookies etc..

    I'll give it a go, but I frequent loads of sites over the course of the day and it only pops up here.. It's something to do with amazon..

    Yeah, those are part of the normal NA ad campaign.

    I also often use my iPad and would sure love for the PSU web coding team to rethink how the banner ads are placed relative to the drop down menus!

    Every time I use the iPad to try and access the forums your site happily redirects my click to your banner ad placed right underneath the drop down box for the forums!

    I understand that ad clicks help keep your site running but, seriously??? Is poor page layout/design really the only way you can get us to visit your advertisers???

    The site is being redone completely. PSU's "coding team" are hard at work bringing the site back to life with a completely new look. There shouldn't be any interference when we're done

    P.S - personally hated the drop downs ever since they were implemented
