I don't know if anyone else is having this issue, but for about 2-3 weeks now, I've been getting logged out of the site. Even when I open another window and work in the other window for an hour or two but keep GoTula.net open when I come back to that window I'm logged out. It's not that big of a deal since my username and password are stored, I'm more just curious as to whether or not others have the same issue?

About the same time, maybe earlier, the kickoff countdown clock started counting down the seconds separately. In other words, the clock shows and then the seconds tick down in a box that's below most of the minutes block. Again, not a big deal at all.
It is happening to me as well. I just keep re-logging back on. But it is a new development.

I've increased the inactive session expiration time... let's see if that helps.

I know the ads support the site but this new influx of ads makes the site jump a lot . You go to click on something and it jumps and you've clicked on something else. Anybody else experiencing this ?

I’m actually working with a new ad provider, and just did a test install today of the new ads and layout. For the next couple of weeks, they will be observing the site and behaviors and experimenting with some test ad placements. Some ads will even be blank sometimes. If you are experiencing problems, please let me know where and how since it’s hard to duplicate across different peoples devices. Desktop or mobile? Can you take a screenshot and email me? Feedback like that is what I need.

New problem , when you click on "first unread post" you only get to the last page , top, in each thread instead of the "first unread post ."

Continuing problem , advertisements everywhere and page jumping around so fast that you end up clicking on something other than what you tried to click on .

Give the site 2 seconds to settle, then you can scroll and click as you please. At least that's how it's been with my ISP and Chrome. If you try to immediately do something, you might click on an ad that you haven't seen yet. NBD, 2 seconds of patience is worth the site being self sufficient.

If TURVS or the "powers that be" ever wanted to charge a small fee for this site, I'd be happy to pay. Or even contribute if asked.

It's more than two seconds and it's every single time you change threads. So bringing it to Steve's attention as he's good about the fix. We all get the revenue angle as I noted in my post.

Steve the bouncing around had calmed down but it has returned this week very noticeably.

Any progress on getting rid of those video ads in the middle of threads? Thanks.

I've just reached out back to the ad provider. Thanks for the input and I hope to hear back today. Should be possible.

I don't know about the rest of you, but I am still having issues with the ads and the auto-play videos slowing down the site, and having me click on something that wasn't there when I clicked. Sometimes it's worse than others, and can even take a few minutes for the page to fully load (my ISP speed is 150).

Ok, I've been working the ad provider for a while now. I think this issues is really only on desktop.

On desktop, the video player should now only show as a sticky in the sidebar, never in content anymore.
On mobile, it's smaller and inline with content.

Let's try this for a bit and see if it behaves correctly.

Ditto. Much appreciated.

FWIW, I'm using a laptop 95% of the time.
