Ad sizes on mobile are a bit out of hand.

    Perhaps some better scaling algorithm could be used? Ads taking up the top AND bottom are a bit ridiculous.

    Agree! I also see ads come from the top sometimes, which covers up the section for notifications and messages. And the one on the bottom makes it difficult to write or edit messages. Makes the whole site frustrating to use.

    Or does it, download adaway today and say goodbye to the annoying ads.

    Note - needs rooted phone to run, excessive use increases the odds of producing a half witch, half worm devil child

    Use responsibly

    I agree, but the ones coming from the top, when they come, are the worst.
    They make browsing around the forums a damn hassle.

    PS: For a long time I have specifically disabled adblocking for gbatemp, and plan to keep doing so, but please.

    I personally think it looks fine. Just scroll past those big block ads and swipe the ad that pops up on bottom down to close it. I've never had any problems using the mobile site and I'm on the mobile site constantly because of down time at school.

    They aren't the same ones I get. I don't mind those, they're easily ignored. It's the ones that actually cover up part of the page and you have to grab the grey bar and drag them off the page to make them go away temporarily. They cover up the message options and the notification/message section.

    Don't though.
    Site won't get any revenue if people start just blocking ads.

    Leave them on my desktop but real estate is limited on the phone so block them all there,

    I see, that makes more sense.
    I still think they'll fix it though, then it'll all be fine.
