Ads now appearing as posts?

Post by PhilB » Tue Jun 05, 2018 7:31 am

Just wondering if anybody else is getting this as well?
Since yesterday afternoon, I'm now getting sponsored ads (mostly ebay) appearing as posts on both homepage, sub-forums and in individual topics.

Homepage:

Sub-forum:

Individual topics:

Yes - I think it’s the new ad platform I’m using. Will find out today.

If it helps, I've had a look at the sister forums (F-Type, F-Pace, E-Pace and Velar) and it isn't happening on there.

Yes, I'm seeing these too. I assumed they were a way for the site to raise some extra money rather than spammers.

I don't mind the odd one -- it's easy enough to scroll past them without reading.

From Sept 2015 to July 2017: MY16 180d Prestige, Rhodium Silver.
