Why is the app description carpet bombed across every page?

    Um, first visit back to the forums in a while, the new format is nice in some ways, but... Why is the app description on the top of EVERY page in a thread? The Heroes & Castles 2 thread is a perfect example, it is totally ridiculous that I have to scroll through ten pages of promo on EVERY PAGE. Surely there is a way to shut this off? If not... How can anyone stand this? We get it, the app is for sale. If we want it, we know where to find it.

    I agree that it's kind of terrible. It is handy to have a link to the game from any forum page, but it's annoying to have to scroll down to the comments.

    Glad to see I was not the only one who found it very annoying having to scroll down
    past the app description every time.

    I'm not really sure why it was changed this way.
    The old method worked just fine.

    I think it looks good on the front page, but not every page of the thread

    +1.

    These days I prefer to browse the forums on Tapatalk rather than on the web for that exact reason, which is a shame.

    Cant agree more. Its very annoying to scroll past it on every page. Not quite sure what the purpose is suppose to be.

    Most of the app description used to be hidden on all pages except page 1 and there was a "read more" (or something like that) button on all other pages. It worked fine, not sure why they removed that.

    That's weird. It's only on the first page for me.

    Are you guys seeing it on every page running ad blockers?

    I see it on every page and I am NOT running an adblocker (and never have). I'm using Chrome, no add-ons

    I see it on every page with or without ad-blocker, 3G/4G same. I just tried everything out. I'm on a 5s, 8.2, no jailbreake.

    Yep, it's quite annoying. Hope you guys will find a solution. Thanks!
