Copyright moving about.

Noticed the copyright at the bottom of page moves about quite bit on here, even  when I don't see the ads.

I usually see it like your first screenshot.  Ad blockers usually adjust page formatting to compensate for missing ads, but results seem to vary, maybe depending on dimensions of ad.

It depends on which blocker and explorer you are using ... It depends on which blocker and explorer you are using ... I do not usually use it in SMF but in other pages it regularly compensates for gaps (I use Adblockplus with mozilla and chrome).

I'm using IE11 tracking protection, it reformats basically the same as adblockplus (without the overhead).

I don't use ad blocking.  Some of those ads show, some don't. 

Glad it's not just me though.  Also wouldn't you think they would update the language file by now, it's still showing 2015 in the copyright as mentioned ages ago.

Weird. It shows 2017 for me.

By the way are you using FireFox as browser?

each language file has its own copyright year in it, if the site team has not updated the files the year will not update.

I'm using various browsers due to testing stuff, but IE11, Edge, Firefox, Chrome, which ever one I have fired up at the time.  ;)
