Ok, I don't complain much about the changes on here but today I have Boars Head ads running in strips along both sides of the screenm plus the same ad in the normal ad box on the right. I've been on the site 5 min(or less) & I'm going crosseyed. Going to look at pics & I'm outta here. WTF, AR? So irritated.

I don't care for the changes either Lisa. I contacted AR about my thoughts.

I really do not see the reason for having the boar's ad anyway. Sure it's good product. Why don't they make a catergory so that you can click on it

Ads can be a bother, I don't see them though on Google Chrome.

I'm always on Google Chrome when I'm on here, they're not the pop-ups. It's actually what I guess who would call the "wallpaper" on this site. It's driving me batty.

I got rid of the wallpaper long ago and don't even remember how. Before I figured it out though I used to resize the window so that it would just show the portion between the wallpaper. Toooooo busy, here that AR?

I see them on my laptop, but can sort of tune them out of my vision and just look at the Buzz. Guess we have to realize AR needs the advertising revenue. If there were no ads there would probably be no free memberships. Just like a magazine that is full of ads. The ones without cost more. I know you realize all this, but just find a way to focus on the good stuff. Don't let such a small thing get you upset! Have a great day!

Hi agree with you Lisa. When I am on my ipad the only way I can scroll up or down is on the screen. It is frustrating because several times it has registered to the add and I end up going where I do not want to go.

Peggy, I literally feel crosseyed when looking at the screen. I don't even pay mind to the ads or anything other than the buzz & photos but this is especially distracting today. It doesn't tempt me to pay the $15 lb for the Boars Head at all, so it's not working. Sorry AR.

and the regular box where the ads always are(upper right corner) keeps moving from a small ad to a large one...again, very irritating.
What's for dinner, mom?

All that *stuff* would be great if stashed under its own link or tab. They could have special offers in there, coupons and so on. Seems to me their focus is the new magazine and trying to get the website to load better on phones, kindles and tablets and such. Content is not so much a priority on this site nor fixing repeatedly pointed out issues. I wonder if the financial support is greater from paid sponsors than its memberships? Still, this is my favorite food site and I do enjoy the people here.... :)

I never see the wallpaper, I have my screen text sized up so I can actually see it. It must eliminate that. I have gotten the bankamerica or whatever it is popup over the sign in box for the past two days though. Really?
Sep. 20, 2013 6:03 am
I'm not seeing anything different. Do you have an adblocker lisa?

I have a Bank of America add right over the top of where I'm supposed to sign in and it doesn't move! I have to type blindly under the add just to sign in!!! Been that way for several days and totally annoying!

When a screen ad or background shows up I refresh my screen and it goes away.
