Ep Is Now Useless On My Phone

Dear EP,
Before all these recent changes, I could access my profile, read stories, comment on stories, and pretty much do everything I can do on my laptop, except use chat. Now, all that has changed.
First, wherever I scroll on my phone screen, there is an add competing for my fingers. I mean, it literally follows wherever I scroll, and it is really annoying because instead of me "clicking" on a story, I'm clicking on an add that keeps getting in the way. It never goes away, and it just becomes too hard trying to outrun the add, and actually go where I want to go.
Second, I can no longer make comments on stories because the *reply/comment* buttons have disappeared. Now they disappeard on the laptop screen too, but if you run the mouse over where they used to be, they pop up, and you can leave a comment. You can't do this with a phone. Not anyway I know of, at least.
So now it's just a waste of time, trying to access EP on my phone because of the crazy moving adds that are competing for my fingers, with the stories I'm trying to read, and the fact I can't make comments or *like* anything.
Why you have to hide the *like/reply* buttons, I don't know. What sense is there to this?
Will you please fix this so that I am able to access EP with my phone, when my laptop is not handy?
And please....I know you have to have adds, but make them user friendly so that they don't interfere with the actual enjoyment of logging on.

Carissimi--What your describing sounds very frustrating and I want to makes sure we get this sorted out for you right away. <br />

Please send me a screenshot of the ad so we can track it down and have it removed. <br />

Also, do the reply and like buttons sometimes show up when you move your mouse over the comment, or do they never appear?

Arsineh, thanks for your response, if you read my last two responses to EPjoey, you will see what was happening...I think...not sure what happend to the annoying adds. I would like some help or advice with making my paragraphs appear after I post.
I'm wondering if other people can see the paragraphs, and it's just the writer who can't. This is a new paragraph by the way, so please let me know if you can see it as such.
Oh, and btw, it was never the laptop that I had the problem with, it is the phone, when I'm logged onto the "full" site. There are no buttons to reply or like anything, but I'll just use the mobile site from here on.

Wow, all I get on my phone is a text version where pretty much the only thing I can do is check my EP mail.

Really? What type of phone do you have?

I have the old fashioned, not smart type.

Ah, that's probably it. I guess that's why they call them smart phones. lol

Yeah, I don't usually get a new phone unless my old one breaks. The phone I got now I got after I accidentally slammed my old one in a car door.

I'm the same. I have the iPhone 3GS, although I got the system upgrades to 5 whatever it's called. I could have bought the 4 ages ago, but see no need, while this one works perfectly fine. I'll buy the 4 when I need it. I see no need to buy something just because it's the latest version, but each to their own.
Thanks for visiting, Kat. :)

What sort of phone are you using? None of those things you mentioned should be happening. I will try my best to fix them.

iphone. It used to work just fine...well my phone works fine...it's the adds and that fact I can't comment on the site that's the problem, but hey thanks. I would appreciate you looking at this.

Joey, I'm on my iPhone now, and the annoying ads have gone, so if you did something, thank you. If not, then I don't know how to explain it.
As for not seeing the reply and like buttons, I figured out the problem. I prefer the full site over the mobile site, so always choose that when using my phone. I just chose the mobile site to see how that worked, and all the reply buttons are here. So I guess I need to use the mobile site, even though I don't like it as much because I can't see as much, or who of my friends are online, without scrolling down to the very bottom of the page.
Thanks for your help, dear.

And, one more thing, Joey.
When I write a response, and use paragraphs, why do the paragraphs not show once I've posted?
I have a friend who says he writes in paragraphs too...as most of us do...and his show up after he's posted.
Any help is appreciated.
