    I know this isn't the right section, but is anyone else getting really annoying pop up ads on their iPhones when using this site? They are all advertising watches and get in the way of text and when writing. I've only just started getting them today but my god are they irritating:mad:

    Nightmare. I'm either getting a box right across the bottom or a very annoying circle to the right of the screen which covers the text I'm trying to read.
    Also the app has completely stopped working for me coming up with Error 404 can't be used on tapatalk! I ain't even got tapatalk o_O

    Thanks for the replies. Redboy that circle one you mention is particularly annoying isn't it. Fingers crossed it's only temporary.

    Yeah, started for me last night and is really annoying. What is more annoying is that even after you click it and visit the advertisers page, it continues to appear :(

    Could not agree more!!!

    nowt on W8 Nokia Lumia.

    AVF have to make money to fund site but that kind of pop up annoying and I think it may have the reversed effect in losing potential viewers.....but it costs money to run this website and maintain it so ......a necessary part if keeping AVF live.

    Perhaps they can continue to use regular static banners at the top and bottom, not the stupid pop up type.
