    I did pick the humour up :) but given that I'd not really considered we could be running political ads here at a pretty charged time I thought it'd be worth letting people know how to avoid seeing it if it's not something they want to see when enjoying some time on the forums.

    We run probably the most popular global advertising network to pay the overheads of operating the site. I'm not super happy about them running political ads, whatever direction but ultimately as far as I know that ad network will run ads for either party, there's no bias involved. We don't...

    Preview button fails to work

    I updated the board to Xenforo 2.2.0 and this seems to be a reworked text input for them. It's a bit uninuititve, but as Midnight says it's there for if you're using BBcode and want to see what the post will look like - Xenforo's own buttons seem not to put BBCode in anymore, and just show you...

    The forum should have a 5 post limit before being allowed to make threads.

    Earliest member sign up here is Mar 12, 2002 and earliest news post is Mar 14, 2002. There may have been other versions of the sites before that but that’s where I came from with the 2002 comment!

    Sharp eyes. I made a change to the style to make links in posts more visible.

    As far as I can see you’re not quite at 10 yet, even including this post.

    I've adjusted Google's Auto-Ads settings (which figure out where to put ads) to remove this particular placement so hopefully it should stop happening in the next hour or so.

    The forum should have a 5 post limit before being allowed to make threads.

    The accounts on the forum are 100% complete all the way back to the very start in 2002, so if you had a different account before in 2006 you should still be able to use it. Let me know if you need any help with it.

    Invasive iPhone ads

    The ads on the site are provided via a reputable provider. Unfortunately bad actors sometimes bid through this service to run ads which hijack browsers like this - we've actually disabled full screen mobile ads at the provider. If there's any report functionality visible/available, please do use...

    Having a look at how the links can be higher contrast/more obvious... Tried applying a relatively ordinary color palette to Xenforo but it came out way too red...

    The Google Ad embed code is the same. Google dynamically chooses where to put them, so it might have gotten a bit confused with the new layout. Let me know if it's annoying over time/doesn't learn to put them somewhere better.

    Ah yeah - that's intentional on their part - fixed width for text content as it gets really hard to read text as sentence gets longer and longer. A bunch of popular websites do this nowadays. Apologies, hopefully at least the whitespace they've cut down between posts/headers/metadata at least...

    Curious if something's acting odd - would be interested if you could attach a screenshot. I'm mainly a laptop user and the layout feels fairly dense here, although the posts will stop getting wider at a fixed point (which is usually for readability, think you're ideally supposed to have 50-60...
