    I get there needs to be some revenue coming in, but there's now a huge ad space at the top of my screen on mobile (at least in the forums). Pretty annoying to scroll through
    What's worse, some of the ads aren't brewing related
    Anything we can do to make the ads more subtle?

    What browser are you using on your phone? Or are you using the app? I don't see a thing!

    @jmcnamara Thanks for reporting this - and apologies for the weirdness with ads today. We're in the process of making some adjustments to how ads are served, which caused some hiccups in the appearance this morning. in theory that big space should be fixed now - is it looking better on your end?

    Re: the relevance of the ads, this is also due to these adjustments we're making. it unfortunately is going to cause the ads to be a little less beer-relevant in the short term, but we're hoping the relevance will begin to tick back up soon.

    That's correct - ads should not be showing for members. Is that still happening? I know we had some instances this morning where they were incorrectly showing, but should be resolved now.

    Mine went away too after clearing my cache. Probably picked it up this morning on my phone but it was fixed by the time I used my workstation.
