Well it's certainly still happening here!

Every time I load a new page or scroll a page it gets re-drawn in big black blocks which is enough to give one a migraine

 

Agreed.  It is worse than 3D TV!

RE: iPad display problem

Okay, the home page is okay now, but when you click on forums it is still there.

RE: iPad display problem

Check this video I've just uploaded on YouTube. It's quite compressed, so apologies for the quality. Check what happens at 14 secs, 31 secs & 42 secs. At its worst, this happens every time I click on the site:

Yep, that is the problem, and I think WHF know what it is too, but I think they can't afford to do anything about it.   :cry:

RE: iPad display problem

I think what Andy meant was that they can't just remove an ad on demand. The advertisers have paid money for that banner. There is a technical issue. He will get in touch with the technical team to resolve the flicker.

RE: iPad display problem

It's not a particular ad that's causing the problem. I've seen the problem with Currys, LG & JBL ads. It's the way the ad is embedded on the site that seems to be the problem.

Yep, agreed.  And it has never been an issue before.

That's exactly what I meant. I've forward this thread to our advertising and tech teams and they'll take a look at it.
