Can we just go back to how it was

Does anyone else get the annoying adverts when they scroll to the bottom of the page?

That's how it was, I'm afraid. More disturbing is the advert on the RHS that starts talking or singing if you accidentally "mouse-over" it.

Thanks, bobsmum, but I think you are asking me to turn off the laptop's speakers. I'll try to avoid the ads instead!

Thank you, jazzgirl. It is said that we(e) males never read instructions. Perhaps this is true. I will revert to the way it was forthwith.

Best wishes.

Thanks for the tip, Jazzgirl. Been away & trying to catch up.
Would be nice to be able to change the order on the fly within a thread, rather than having to use "Edit".

I'll have to make a list of suggestions.

Maybe it would be a good idea to have the "normal" order of posts (as other websites use) as the "default setting" rather than the upside down version. I have suggested this to Norah & admin today .

Here is part of my note for Peer Review this week. As we vote by referring to a post number we need the order that leaves the number unchanged. An alternative would be to ask entrants to add an attempt number if they have more than one try.

N.B. The new improved site allows you to view the posts “first to last” or “last to first.” In order to avoid chaos please set your viewing preference so that the first post comes first i.e. “first to last”, as the old site did. (Use the edit button if you need to change)
