The heart of the site is the forum area, including:
Several times this morning the site has thrown out popup ads when I've clicked a button on a page.
Noooooooooooooooo!!! Just when the Loud Shouty Ads(tm) issue seemed to have gone away. Are these advertising companies deliberately trying to piss folk off?
Not seen anything like that myself but bloody hate pop-up ads.
Seen, I've just had some gimpy game pop up when clicking the last 50 button
What browser / OS are you using? I've been having scamming pop ups (blueads- mobirewards.org) for a while. From what I've been able to find out these are 'just' a scam and aren't any more damaging than being a pain in the neck. Turning off Java script seems to have stopped it. I'm using Safari on iOS 6.
Got some bloody stupid game popup using both IE9 and Chrome.
Last 50 just took me here.
I'm using firefox 16.0.01 on a nexus 7 [android 4.1.2], with the phony app in order to view desktop versions of sites
Ditto but only IE9 .
Got another when i hit the Replies to my posts button.
Wings of Destiny: Massive PvP, a unique Crafting system, evolving Pets and Mounts, and a gripping story - all in free epic MMORPG! of destiny.
Getting it on firefox at my end as well.
Has some **** got at the forum software and done this?
Check that the option to stop pop-ups is enabled in IE 9,
pop-up blocker - tick to enable ( then in pop-up blocker settings you can set the level of blocking the pop-ups)
Got mine set to block yet I was still getting them last night.
Thank god the gay dating pop up has gone all I got at the week end was one for wining a I phone.
I always thought iPads were immune to pop ups
Thanks for response .
It was enabled ... my route to change setttings seems to be
Pop up Blocker
Settings ... current setting Medium
The problem , which lasted for perhaps an hour yesterday , seems to have gone away .
Those gurning orange harridans are not looking quite so bad now, are they?
