    It does seem better now. I can actually use mobile, the ads are now just taking up a quarter of the screen instead of the whole thing.

    Particularly on my mobile phone, the forums are completely unusable. That Admiral data request still pops up everytime you swap page & even if you can live with that, the screen is then flooded with advertisements. :(

    3 times now in the last day I've gone into the politics section only to be assaulted with a full page ad that has no timer or X button. It basically hijacks the page.

    I don't know how to send photos here. I was unaware we could do that. But it happened again right now. It's TWD ads.

    Screenshot it on your phone or computer (Snip Tool on Windows) and use Upload a File next to Post Reply to post it or upload it with postimg.org.

    So will this be looked into? It still happens frequently.

    We have someone looking into it. When does the ad pop up. Is it on any thread or certain ones or the main page?

    Usually pops up like 10-15 seconds after the page loads. Ane at first it was in the politics section, but now it will trigger anywhere, except the main page.

    I never struggled too badly but I tried browsing on my phone today and it's an absolute disaster. Unusable is right. I couldn't keep track of the posts between ads.

    I normally spend most of my time here on a laptop with ad-block, but again today it's cluttered with them regardless. Has there been an update or something?

    While our techs are trying to figure it out. Have you tried an adblocker?

    also, if you're noticing them in particular threads, naming those or linking to them would also help because we can send that info to the techs and give them a place to start searching

    Yep, was trying to post in a few threads earlier & kept getting them, then when you answer them you get an error on the next page.

    Yeah. I noticed this. I just go <- and then do whatever I was doing. It pops up seemingly randomly, but I'm still looking for patterns.

    @ComicChick I'm still waiting on the Hawaii thing.....

    This thing seems to just pop up on pages 11 and 13. I wonder if there isn't some malicious activity going on???

    Deleted it for safety. Don't think it's anything anyone should click on. :(

    I noticed that it was back.

    MARVEL WHAT-IF: REIMAGINING SEQUELS & FILMS THAT NEVER WERE

    Page 12 looks okay as do the others except 11 and 13. I doubt anyone would venture to bypass safety protocols, but I think someone should figure out what's going on and fix it. It's not a bad thread and maybe it's just the pages that have a weird link and triggered a warning from SHH???

    It looks like someone went in and deleted the offending links.....if that's what they were.
