(Android phone).

I logged on through Google Chrome yesterday and was hammered by ad's all over the place, played merry hell on my CPU fan, got so bad I had to quit the site, logged back in with FF, I have adblock & noscript running on both browsers but the versions on GC don't work very well, the versions on FF keeps them all under control.

Not sure if there are equivalent blockers for android though!

If anyone is wanting to know, I just found ScriptNo for Google Chrome, just installed it and thus far no adds are showing here:

...it's not just the ads Kirk, I'm actually getting new pages open on my phone. That's never happened before on any site for me and it hasn't happened on my computer yet. Weird.

Probably an ad attacking a specific vulnerability in the phone browser(s); desktop pop-up blocking is pretty good at this point.

Confirmed, I'm getting pounded by ads, top and bottom of threads listed as posts from "sponsored content".

Ads are also hitting me on my laptop.

Have patience. It is being dealt with.

Actually,

I simply changed my banner setting on my security suite. Problem solved for me.

Thanks for the response Carlos. Smile

Ads getting aggressive. I'm back once again to my phone getting pop ups asking me to claim my trillion pound prize and the phone buzzes more than a top seller at Anne Summers.

Sorry Carlos... Embarassed

Ads should be gone now for everyone. Forumotion just recently (Today) changed how they handle this which is both good and bad. The bad is you have to buy a monthly package that enables features like disabling ads and that is not available on their standard package that we had. So it's a little more expensive but some of the added features might be ok, I'll have to look into it more. The good is it's now set up on automatic payments so unless something weird happens to my account it shouldn't come up again because I forgot to buy more credits.

Sorry for the inconvenience and hope you are all doing well.

Gosh Jason, that's jolly decent of you. A sincere thank you from me, and great to see you on the forum.

Regards,

Stick.

Well done Jason. And you have always been gracious in this regard. I'm sure we all appreciate your continued support of the site in all the ways you do behind the scenes, as it were.

I do personally recognize what a difference it makes when the ads are gone as they have been a nuisance as well as slowing down the site. And for all you do, I believe you have all of our gratitude whether expressed or not.

That said, if any of our members have the wherewithal to help Jason defray the ongoing costs of the ad-free feature, feel free to pm me for his pp account as he doesn't want to post this.

No pressure or anything like that. Don't want to make this sound like a fund drive - anything but in fact. But it might be a great gesture for his ongoing support.

This is only intended to be my personal suggestion.


Cheers,

RR
