Why has the format changed in the threads?

Why are the pop culture links/adds/pics popping up between the posted article and the responses instead of at the very bottom of the page? This is beyond annoying and makes this site borderline unuseable. It makes no sense to do that.

1. Have you considered a Star Membership?

I think it removes those ads.

2. It has not changed. Donate any amount to become a STAR member and no ads.

Go to MY ACCOUNT at the top then STAR membership.

3. Hi ScatchCat - I noticed the same thing....it wasn't like this yesterday.

It appears that this is not an issue once I log in to my account, but if I am just "lurking" I am not able to access the responses due to the links/ads, etc. that you mentioned.

I'm not sure what caused this change, either.

Tim

4. This is the first time we noticed it and I'm very upset

I am going to get in touch with the ad service and ask them to fix it.

It is true that it goes away when you sign in, but this will cause new sign-ups to grind to a halt. People exploring will never get past the cascade of ads.

7. XXXXXX

All of my posts in the Astrology, Spirituality & Alternative Healing (Group) have been distorted by the change forced on us.

The distortion remains even after I sign in. This underground but not democratic.
