Hello all,
We will be testing a new ad type on the site this weekend and wanted to let you know about it in advance. This is a test only to see how the ad performs on the site; if it is going to be introduced as a new thing in the future we will let you know about that then.

Things to know:
This is a video ad on the desktop site.

This ad will only appear to logged out users or brand new users (users who already see ads between posts in thread view).

The ad will autoplay the visuals but the sound only plays if you un-mute it yourself with a click.

It will appear between two posts in thread view (see image below) and collapse away once it has finished playing.

This test will run until next Monday.


If you notice anything untoward, if it breaks your view or does something not as described above, please do let us know.

Thanks all,
Niamh.
