Who else is annoyed by the imposing horizontal-scrolling "Tip of the Day" ads that have started to appear on myLot? I wouldn't mind so much but the applet or whatever it is called has a banner ad above and below, and it really makes the page hop about a bit as it is loading... Makes things sloooow... Just a bit of user feedback... Update 02-Dec-2016: Ahh, Carambola is back, hop-about city, book! Has it got to be this way, @MyLotBugs? PS, love the prompt page that pops up now when you are about to "Leave MyLot" for another website!

I don´t like any of that. The latest add I have is about removing make up. As I don´t use any, it is as uninteresting as those old mails that sold Viagra.

I have no idea for either make up remover or Viagra.

I had not seen one, until I read your post. One just appeared. Is it you or did reading your note just make me aware of them?

I am about to fire up the laptop as it has an adblocker on it. That is how annoying this is getting. Grr!

@pgntwo I might try that too, if it gets too bad.

@ElizabethWallace I've heard that about the Apple phone or tablet, it is mentioned in the article in my latest post, about Carambola.

I was surprised the other day to have those. Using mobile...it is quite hard to post a comment

Yes, that is what I am finding - smartphone browsing of myLot is now a chore...

My husband installed adblocker to stop the pop-ups.

Got one on the laptop, alas not on the phone, too much engineering needed to make it work properly on the phone. I'll get used to it (I guess...!). Thanks for the suggestion

@Mylotbugs, is there a way to tweak this?

It does have a tendency to plonk itself in the middle of everything, making even selecting an emoji from the palette available something of a bouncy challenge.

I've got those 'Carambelo' quiz type adverts since yesterday, and ever since then everything is slow for me too.

It is the bouncing around, adding myLot codes is more difficult now too.

I agree, my screen lags alot more now and every now and then my browser refreshes. I don't like it at all.

Not helping with usability, no. But the highlighting on the response remains now, as you type your comment. Nice touch.
