Looks fine until an advert on the mobile site drops in and starts tearing the shit out of everything, site is still effectively unusable on mobile for me and that's with a 720p 6inch screen.

I say unusable, I mean it's not practical to use, the adverts are completely intrusive and bandwidth heavy changing far too often to try to get the most revenue, I would think anyone who chooses to advertise here should actually visit this site and see the state that their adverts appear to the users, any product I see jamming over the submit button or just ruining a page would never be something I would be interested in looking at, it's bad publicity they way they're handled.

What browser do you use?

I tried that and it's still the same? Are you on discord. I could send you a few screenshots. Or maybe it's meant to be the way I'm seeing, it's really skinny with everything underneath each other. 

If you're on mobile - then yes, that's how responsive design works (multi-columns are collapsed into one long column).

I'm on Discord, so yeah you can send them to me there...

It HAS to be a regional thing or something, because I hardly EVER have such issues with ads beyond the usual "they are ugly and distracting" kind of stuff. They've NEVER prevented me from using the site and the only one that ever really got in my way (the one that appeared in the left column, covering the buddy) - I simply clicked the "close" button on the ad and there was no problem.

I just wonder how it is that peoples experience can vary so WILDLY...   :(

I'll see if I can screenie it next time, but yeah adverts here in Ireland cover the Submit and Preview buttons and the video one which appears can decimate my phones performance to the point where auto correct doesn't properly work in the text entry, that is the reason why the fucking thread title of my Marvel Movie thing had spoilers incorrectly spelled simply because it's not possible for me to change that on mobile, absolutely feels shit when you make a post on here from mobile because I hate my posts having errors in them which I can't do anything about.

 

Edit - Will point out, I don't require auto correct to not typo.... otherwise my posts from PC would be littered with mistakes, but the actual auto-correct drops half completed words into the middle of others, while a video covers the text area so I cannot see what is being written, it is to all intents and purposes, unusable.

What do you mean you can't click on it? Does it not react? Can you not get into the user/pass form? Details...???

Terrible work around for that I found months back, basically hold your finger on it for long enough that the in built browser drop down menu appears, now click the back arrow on your phone and it should leave the drop down list showing on the site under where your icon would go, you can now click where it says to login.

That's necessary for the OLD header - but should NOT be necessary for this new one. I touch it once, it drops down and stays down (the way it's supposed to)...
