because they're really annoying me.
You are not alone!
I loaded Adblock - but that did no good...
Can someone put up a tutorial of how to get this annoying trash off the screen and let the threads load sensibly?
I am not here for twitface - I am here for Bushcraft and am getting so hacked off with the twitface things I am spending more time on other Bushcraft sites than here....
Same here John, but maybe we're just dinosaurs mate.
The Twitface carp takes ages to load - making surfing the threads a pain in the proverbial... none of the other sites have this annoying feature and I can enjoy them so much more easily...
It maybe your web browser that gives you the adverts, I only browse the forums from applications/programs and don't see much social media adverts. Will try to find youtube on how to clean browser.

Facebook blocker: Https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4fmwBCLpGKo
Hope either of those two might be a solution.
No idea how but I don't see them.
Linux seems to cut down on a lot of these things but then Firefox sorts more and also have Adblock Plus.
I also have zero interest in Twitter and I bombed Facebook off a while ago, too intrusive.
I don't have these at all
No idea why not, and I can't see why FM's etc., ought to have to thole them either.
I'm going to Flag this thread for Admin because things like this really put people off reading the forum, and that is not the intent.
Are these actual ads we're talking about or the little rectangular social sharing 'tick/click' boxes just above the thread title on each page?
I thought it was a contant sliding down as you work down the page block of links thing ?
No getting away from it is what I mean.
These I think? Not something I'd use but doesn't bother me too much.
That's what I have too, but I thought the issue was the bar/block that follows down the page as folks scroll down ? No getting away from it is what I mean.
Oh, I've never had that one.
I haven't had it here, but I gave up using some quilting groups because of it. It's just impossible to concentrate on the page with that thing stuttering along down the page beside the posts
I really hope that I'm mistaken about it here.
Those are the ones!
Being out in the sticks with only slow Broadband those little suckers take up to 30 seconds to load - every time I open a thread!
Now, that may not seem like much but you try having a good read of the site and see how blooming frustrating it is if you have to pause every time you open any thread.
If the little beggars opened just once, say, when I first came to BcUK - like the Alpkit stuff does, then it would be no biggy - but every time I open a thread ... it is driving me away from the site!
I avoid opening threads, just to avoid the stuttering access the twitface engenders - PITA! I am missing out on interesting stuff!
OK - off to visit some sites that do not have the twitface carp - see you later!
Scroll down one reply in a thread and and hey presto they've gone...
Social networking is something that is being expanded on, unfortunately there is no way to avoid it these days without stagnating and losing lots of potential traffic.
I do agree that the load time on them does seem out of sync for the rest of the site though so we'll look into that.
Saying that I've not had a problem with them but then broadband speeds here aren't really an issue...
They are an issue on my 8meg broadband. I, like John, must be the wrong kind of "traffic". I would have liked to be able to get rid of them as a full member?
Google chrome internet browser and adblock installed and they are gone, i don't see them when visiting on my pc or on my cellphone, both run the internet via google chrome browser
I don't get them either. And I'm on FB!
They're a setting in v-bulletin, i dont think they're setup by user group though so its wierd that some folks arent seeing them.
