The advertisements are not really that bad for me to use a different skin.

iPhone skin is for a basic way to access the forums from a mobile device. It isn't supposed to have all the features of the full skin.

So the ad free skin is gone and won't come back?
That would be bitter.

Ya that would make me sad ! The addfree loads so much nicer on the iPhone and still has the features. It's a nice in between the reg and iPhone skin.

I never said it will not come back

The ad-free skin is part of the Membership package. I am pretty sure they will add the ad-free skin back it may just be a matter of time.

I'm not part of the website operation or anything like that but it just makes sense for them to add it back.

There were some issues left over from the forum upgrade to a newer version of the software, have no fear, we'll get them fixed as soon as possible.

If you notice any other issues, be sure to post them here.

Do you have to upgrade your membership to be able to choose from different skins or something? I'm not seeing anything like that under my profile options.

Responding to your invitation, do I detect a 'block' occurring from one of the ad servers?

For perhaps two weeks now I've noticed pages of M-F not loading because progress gets stuck at ad.doubleclick.net. This is not a continuous problem, but an irritating one. It appears to happen more at certain times of the day.

The solutions, if they can be called that, include going back one page and trying again, or going to a different thread, or halting the page load and trying a reload, even quitting the browser (Camino).

Because I wish to use and contribute to M-F without the clutter and distraction of ads, I have cookies, Flash animations and pop-up windows blocked. I suspect the delay caused by the ad server is related to the cookies block. Could that in fact be the case?

Why don't you turn on the Ad-Free skin? That should eliminate any potential problems with Ad servers. Might as well enjoy the primary perk of being a premium member.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

Could be hughvane. Have the same issue when I'm at work, not logged in and have a couple of minutes. Rarely have the issue with the ad free skin.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.

Continuing this theme of delayed page loads, I notice that, after changing the skin to ad-free, my login details had to be re-entered, I'd been 'forgotten' .

But, the story doesn't get better. I still notice long delays in page display, while the progress text at the base of the Camino page shows a number of ad servers poking their noses in, the worst 'offender' being ad.doubleclick.net, where page load stops altogether. As stated earlier, halting the page load and trying a reload helps to overcome the situation. This should not be necessary.

A parallel problem is that connection from my computer is woefully slow at present - being dealt with by ISP techs - but it began after I'd noticed the delay caused by the M-F ad servers.

The two problems compounding make browsing rather difficult
