Feedback Tab.

A feedback tab has appeared on my tablet, forum page, and is positioned at the side of the page often blocking the red reply post tab....

How do I get rid of this thing, completing the feedback does not get rid of it.

Only appeared a few days ago but quite annoying....

Using a iPad.

Re: Feedback Tab.

Are you able to take a screen capture of this for posting please @gleneagles.

On your iPad press the top and Volume up buttons to capture the screen.

Re: Feedback Tab.

The feedback tab is also present on my PC.

Clicking it takes you to another survey page.

Re: Feedback Tab.

Yep, I noticed it had appeared a few days ago.  Moderately annoying.

When I first noticed it I thought it was some sort of label telling me I was reading the 'Feedback' section of the forum and went elsewhere expecting it might change to something else, but no.

I also tried clicking it but didn't fill in the feedback form, and like @gleneagles found that I seem to be stuck with it.

@Mook 

Screenshot above removed in favour of the one below, more relevant to @gleneagles problem of the 'Feedback' tab clashing with the 'Reply' button.

Re: Feedback Tab.

Mmm, that's something I don't see on Safari OSX Big Sur, but I only have essential cookies enabled it may or may not have something to do with that. Or maybe its waiting its turn.

Re: Feedback Tab.

May sound odd but it’s worse than the screen shot shown....that screen shot shows a slight gap between the red post tab and the feedback tab but when the iPad is in vertical position it obscures the red post tab, sure I can scroll to shift it but it a b nuisance, the other solution is to use the tablet in horizontal mode which does give a good gap but the point is why should I have to be dealing with this issue anyway ?

Is there any way to block this thing ?

Re: Feedback Tab.

Well I've just managed to block the text from the button using AdBlock so now I'm just seeing a blank rectangle.

I'm off to do something else (i.e. have a late breakfast) but might have a look at finishing the job a bit later.

I suspect that's down to screen resolution @gleneagles  Smiley

Re: Feedback Tab.

I've just logged in on my iPad and I too see this Tab as you can see from the screen capture. However for me it's not in the way of any buttons regardless of orientation, so it maybe as @RobPN suggest @gleneagles down to your resolution.

Re: Feedback Tab.

Interesting - I don't see that on my laptop, but I use Firefox and uBlock Origin, which i suspect treats it as what it is - irritating carp.

Will have a look on the iPad once it has finished charging, but I suspect it will appear on there as I don't have any extra blocking program, other than the FF rules being as tight as I can make them without upsetting my browsing experience.

 

EDIT - as I thought, that annoyance pops up on the iPad, but doesn't obscure anything - 9.7" tablet at default settings.

@198kHz  No idea, but they won't be getting any from me.🤣

EDIT: Your link explains it all - typical 'social  media' wastes of space.

No problem giving them my thoughts.....

Likely to result in a ban for life from the forum.
