    What the hell is going on with the ads? As a mod I don't need to pay for the privileges being pro gets you but if I was just a member I'd be happy (and was when I was) to donate to forum upkeep and as a bonus; avoid ads.

    Those ads are an insult to paid members and if I was a pro/subscriber, I would cease being one.

    Please respond. Advertising, aside from paid, HB sponsors is invasive and unwelcome.

    It's been asked multiple times and seemingly ignored.

    A paid member shouldn't need it is my point.

    I know about adblockers.

    I did address it previously, the ability to remove ads was a custom development we had done for IPB. The same custom development needs to occur with xF and we don't currently have a xF developer to write that plugin so in the mean time please use the adblocker.

    Fair enough but I missed it- not unexpected considering updates have been so few and far between. Convince people to part with their cash to support the forum, they may reasonably expect more.

    I googled a news story yesterday, now ahb keeps a constant ad to which I've since been redirected several times.

    I know you're busy but communication is key. You made the thread encouraging complaints so they are forthcoming.

    Currently the messages have the avatar and member information block on each message post.
    Is there something else you are referring to?

    I think he is referring to message replies. It didn't show who the reply is from. In a group message this is particularly confusing as you have no idea who is replying.

    While your looking at message issues can you increase the number of allowable participants. It's about 6 at the moment which is too small.

    If we are organizing a meet up our bulk buy with other Ahb members this requires having many messages sent to six members at a time

    In group messages the username is in small font at the bottom of the message reply but should be at the top and larger.

    In my PMs I have no idea who posted what message. Someone said that the username was at the bottom and I then looked but can't find.

    Always go to my phone app just to understand the conversation and who posted what.

    Does anyone else see what I see?

    The username is at the bottom left of the message , next to the report button.
    Would be much better at the top.

    Just realised location is no longer shown, at least not on mobile (not using app).

    My mobile is an interim piece of shit but pretty sure I was getting it previously on this device (android) - most definitely on all devices prior to migration.

    And selecting ' desktop site', I can see some other people's locations but my own appears invisible.

    I can also view other people's info like messages or likes received which is irrelevant to my life.

    Just some minor gripes, fully knowing this is a free service that I really enjoy, so don't really mind if these aren't addressed.

    Notifications don't seem to be working well for me. They were for a while, but I'm no longer getting notified when people are replying to a watched thread. I haven't changed any settings in the interim, so not sure what has changed.

    The 'your content' section could use a but if de cluttering too, maybe have an option to collapse all the posts so that you can just keep track of threads you're involved in, rather than every single post.

    When looking at the dates of PM messages, they all have today's date no matter how old.
    Could be my settings?

    On mine the date is in very small print at the bottom left, just in front of the edit etc boxes.
