Yesterday, when visiting RD on mobile
two massive HP ad's (the same ad) were at the top and bottom of the screen
with a little slit in the middle where you could actually read what was on the website
shame :(

These ads can't be any higher than 100px on the top and 50px on the bottom i've been told which should leave plenty of space for your screen.

If not, can you please take a screenshot?

I'm getting full page ads hijacking the complete display on first loading now.
Honestly, RD is a nightmare on mobile, the page jumps around as three or four ads get loaded successively on different parts of the screen. Good luck to anyone trying to click a link before all the ads have loaded, you end up clicking through to an advert by mistake. Very clever design.
Any chance of limiting the ads to one per page?
I find them incredibly intrusive.
Guess I need to use a mobile adblocker.

I'm on RD using my mobile (android-Chrome) most times and never have these issues and I don't use an ad blocker.
Have you tried different browsers?
You don't have three or four ads popping up on different parts of the screen?
What do you see?

Galaxy Note 8 user here--I do not even notice header ads, let alone pop-ups.

Are the large ads connected with being a non-premium user?

Ah, that'll explain it.
I cleared my chrome browser on my phone and visited RD without signing in, I had an ad banner across the top of the screen and one popped up at the bottom which I could close, but really didn't stop me from viewing the site.
I'll check again later on an older phone.
Hope you can get it sorted.

We don't serve any popup ads if that's what you mean. We serve just serve four AIB standardarized ads like any other website on desktop. Mobile doesn't have four ads per page apart from the frontpage as far as I am aware.

Can you please attach a screenshot of what you meaning with ads popping up?

Absolutely, we even offer zero ads for premium users.
