Re: Yet another Ad issue (autoplaying audio and video)

Can't get to this place on my phone AT ALL without this bullshit happening now.

Re: Ads redirecting me to cam girl site MERGED

Yup, forum is impossible to navigate on an iPad. Make it stop, people.

Re: Ads redirecting me to cam girl site MERGED

Tempting fate here, but to follow-up on my post an hour or two ago:

Yep, forum became completely unusable. Almost every click was getting the takeover.

This was iOS Safari, full site, not that crappy mobile version.

I switched to iOS Chrome and the first dozen or so tabs have been ok so far.

Re: Ads redirecting me to cam girl site MERGED

On my fifth attempt in this thread, I just might get a post in without being hijacked!

Possibly fixed now? Probably only temporary.

No, not fixed. Got hijacked again after last post. I'm out of here for a while.

Yeah, I kept getting the same thing this morning so I googled that site and found another forum complaining about it, and someone said iBobi would look into it. Another IB site, I presume.

I can only use this site on my laptop.

Re: Ads redirecting me to cam girl site MERGED

If you're on iOS, NeverAds seems to stop the redirects. They stopped immediately after I turned it on.

I know ad blockers are frowned upon, but when the ads are making the forum unusable, it's either that or stop coming here.

Ok, so I'm back after taking 2 weeks off. Why am I not surprised that IB is ignoring this thread? Why have a feedback forum anyway?

I have installed NeverAds and so far so good. Thanks for the tip.

Re: Ads redirecting me to cam girl site MERGED

Thanks guys. We're trying to swat the ads down as we see them but they are being fed by our ad networks and it is a little dicey getting them removed. Keep posting screenshots. This is the best way for us to combat them atm.

Re: Ads redirecting me to cam girl site MERGED

If it keeps happening all the time with this ad network, is it time to maybe try to find a better ad network? Surely the amount of time you're spending fielding complaints and playing whack-a-mole with ads you don't even control and the amount of eyeballs and engagement time you're losing on this site (and I assume others) because of this problem that is getting no resolution from your ad network is worth more than whatever cost you might incur by choosing a different, better ad network partner?

The amount of time they spend on our complaints? Surely you jest.

This thread is a year old and it's only gotten worse.

Right on the money. I imagine the next IB meeting about this site will be along the lines of...

Ray Hott: Good afternoon, Mr. Roque. Her name is Camilla Rhodes. The director doesn't want her. Do you want him replaced? I know they said...
[pause]
Mr. Roque: Then...
Ray Hott: Then that means we should...
[pause]
Mr. Roque: Yes?
Ray Hott: Shut everything down. Is that something that... You want us to shut everything down?
Then we'll shut everything down.

Yeah, it was a joke. Kind of like their response to our complaints.

This is the scareware ads I'm getting now on iOS:

Re: Ads redirecting me to cam girl site MERGED

I got the same thing earlier on my iPhone using Chrome. I love this forum but this is getting old. Between the site being taken over by ads on Safari to the point of not being able to use it and now this I'm pretty irritated. Chrome had been working with the site fine before today (I downloaded it probably a little over a week or so ago) and seems to work better overall but I hope this doesn't start to become an issue.
