I don't know who initiated this, but they're annoying the hell out of me already. I don't mind if there are ads for financial reasons, but can we:

A. Not have them follow you as you scroll up or down on the page (I'm currently getting one for the HTC Inspire that's doing this on every page on Neoseeker).


B. Offer a paid mobile mode that removes these ads if they're staying around. I'd gladly pay $5 or so a month to use mobile mode without any ads.

As an update to this, with the addition of neoseeker plus, you can disable the ads in mobile mode.
Yes, but it's a bit of a band-aid fix. People could also find an ad blocker for their phones that accomplishes the same thing, only without Neoseeker making any money. There are still a few ads that like to scroll with you. I don't mind ads, but I do mind them interfering with my browsing on a mobile device. If they could be coralled into one spot at the top or bottom of the page I'd be a happy camper with or without the option of disabling ads on mobile with n+ and I'm sure plenty of people coming in off of Google or Bing without an account to sign up for n+ with would feel the same way. It's great to have a mobile mode unlike GameFAQs, but it 's not great to try and click a link to a thread and have an ad get in your way at the last second because it takes its time scrolling down with you. I imagine that could be a turnoff for potential new n+ subscribers.

Makes browsing on my Vita incredibly slow. But yeah, N+ is here, so you could just disable Ads that way.

There's now an ad for the Travel Channel following me. The frequency of them appearing appears to have slowed, but there's now also white space at the top where ads SHOULD be. I get one or two "following" ads a day, but then no ads at all if they don't appear, which makes the white space unnecessary.

I'm seeing Old El Paso sticking at the top and following me down at the same time. Super exciting stuff and I wouldn't really mind if it didn't lag up a bit.

Adding Toshiba to the list of annoying ads.

I too keep getting Old El Paso following me around the screen - shits me to tears.

Bumping this up. Ads that are following me on mobile mode currently are:
  • H&R Block
  • Netflix
  • D.O.T.
  • Old El Paso
These are a few examples, but really every ad I've seen in the past week has followed the page. I liked them better when they were up top and remained in one place. Currently using the stock browser on a Galaxy S3 and the floating ads don't affect the keyboard, but the slight lag in the ad reappearing sometimes causes me to click the ad instead of a button or link.

So many times I've tried to press notifications and I've ended up logging myself out.
Yes, this. Like literally just now, I tried to click on the post field, but ended up hitting the Num List button instead.

It's a minor point, but a point nonetheless.

First visit to Neoseeker since the mobile mode was introduced and it all seems fine, adverts act just as they do on a computer; they stay at the top.
