Google AI is being a pain... I think we have it resolved now, but will keep a close eye. Effectively I reduced the ad load on the main website so it improved readability and google AI therefore decided to swamp the forums instead. We now have a set ad load and exclusions for the forums, plus removing some fixed ads in the next day or so, which should mean things are better. It's a balancing act as google ad income keeps the forums running, but obviously we don't want it to be intrusive and unreadable either.  Any issues please post in here so I can trouble shoot as they come up. Thanks! Cara

Youíre doing a great job !

Itís a very tricky job to get enough advertising to keep the forums afloat, while stopping too many that could sink it.

We've spent hours on it so far. Every time I remove from one section they are popping up in another. Google did a big update/change and so many sites have been hit badly. Even large ones such as the Daily Mail, who will have their own dedicated staff to handle it, are unable to sort out the new AI placements and swamping.

For now I've removed all ads from the main chat sections landing page and removed another chunk of sections within topics and posts. Now to see what the new AI ad monsters decide I need to fix tomorrow!
