    It's an AFF survey, not an ad:)

    AFF survey, not an external ad I suspect

    It is bloody annoying on mobile though, taking up most of the screen with the big font.

    Yes, its a notice which is displayed to all our members - not an external ad. The notice can easily be dismissed (top right hand corner). I have removed the image and reduced the size of the text.

    Thanks for the clarification. Although it looked genuine, part of me thought it was spam and advertising or something claiming to be from AFF but it wasn't. I'll do the survey for you. If I do the survey will it disappear or will I have to close it all the time?

    Ah ok, thanks for clarifying. I assumed it was an ad as the reference to AFF was not visible. I can see that it is now, thanks.

    Wonder if the survey prevents multiple submissions?

    Oh, now the ad is gone. Wonder if it has to time out with an update once you do the survey.

    I did the survey last night and had to close the notice today.

    I thought it was spam too but then realised it was the AFF survey.

    I did the survey about 12 hours ago and the banner has now disappeared for me.

    Note that the notice is dismissible (there should be a check mark in the top-right that can be clicked).
