Is there such a thing as getting an email notification from the forum for a new profile comment, like I do when I recieve a new PM?

The vBulletin software only allows for PM email notifications.

Thanks- too bad- as new profile comment notifications via email would be a help.

I seem to be having an issue with the site on my laptop. The advert that usually appears below the new post, FAQ, community links but above the threads has surrounded the edge and top of my screen. Cutting off haf of my view. It's only on this site.

The Forums has no control over the ads that appear when a member is viewing a Forums page.
Google selects the ads that each member sees according to the profile that Google has compiled based on the person's internet history and the site they are viewing at any particular time.

No relevance to the placement of ads, but worth noting:
Google also tailors search results based on the Google profile of the person (or computer) making the search. Thus two people on different computers can do a Google search using identical keywords but be presented with different results.

I note that with some applications Google is now requesting mobile phone numbers and even real names. Hmm...
I recall the time when Microsoft was condemned for its intrusive practices. The Google organisation has long since overtaken Bill Gates & co in this regard.

Ive got the same problem as Lumutqueen and I cant read all of the posts.

I cant see any connection between recent sites I have viewed and the ads - eye makeup! I'll come out and return but this means I cant use the Forum. It also means that I cant log out.

EDIT: Managed to logout by going to the links page and now those all page ads have disappeared.

I have had the same experience on this forum, although not happening today, and believe me I never visit sites related to ladies makeup.

I'm also having the same problem as Lumutqueen and Cepe. Also, a Shreddies advert keeps on appearing and it won't let me exit the advert after at least three attempts of clicking on the cross. Sometimes I can't even see the current threads at the side. The problem is only occurring on my PC and not my laptop. This is quite annoying, I wonder when it'll stop. Here are a few screenshots of what it's like for me, although I'm pretty sure they're almost the same as Lumutqueen's:

I'm having the same problem on my laptop using Safari. I can only see the right side of each post so am having to use my iPad to post this. No problems on my iPad (I'm not using the TRF app, just Safari to access the full site).

I too am getting make-up adverts. Nothing I do seems to stop it.

Here is how I got out of it -

Could not log out on portal pages

Went to another page - either rules or links. Moving quickly (thaty's strange if you knew me) I managed to log out. I think this is the key. Waited and then came back in and it had gone.

I tried without a clean log out and it didn't work.

Hope this helps

Mine has only just gone and that was after several attempts to log in and out. Also, I know the adds we see are google's thing but surely the placement is TRF domain no?

A tip for those having problem with ads.

I had a huge issue with Google basically tracking and storing information without my permission. Because of that, I stopped using Chrome and Opera. Firefox though has an option that allows you not to be tracked by Google, plus a couple of handy adds-on that will stop adds from appearing ever again (such as Do Not Track and similar). It's a heaven living in ads-free world!

If anyone using Firefox needs assistance with getting rid of advertisements and/or stop Google from tracking their searches, send me a PM and I'll be glad to show you how (it's really easy, promise!).

An Ard Ri was about to log out yesterday [my time] when he received a complaint about recent posts in that thread so he closed it expecting to get back to it quickly.

I've checked it out and pending his arrival online, I've reopened it.

thanks Warren, it does help if what is unacceptable for TRF is rather clear and as a member I could not see any great tension rising on the Inaki thread, just a difference of opinion.
