    Usually the advertisements only appear if your not a member. Is it normal to still see them when you're signed in?

    We always had advertisements after a set number of replies on mobile. On desktop, we used to have ads in the sidebar. Now, we no longer have a sidebar module (which also spares us the problem of embedded content like youtube videos getting cut off, as on the old site), so the ads need to run in between posts instead.

    It's normal behavior for the new site. The ads allow us to pay to host and maintain the site, develop new features, and contribute to charity.

    We'll continue to tune the ads to make sure the size and appearance are appropriate, and if there's significant interest we could look into offering a reduced ad or ad free premium subscription option.

    Hi, we've adjusted the ad size to fit better and have removed any spam that may have showed up for you. Thanks for reporting this!
