I've been logged in every time this has happened.

For me, all are iPhone or iPad, on safari, always desktop mode, and I've been logged in for 17 years.

Also, I think it would probably be helpful if people included this information with each report. Example:

Device: iPhone
Skin: Mobile (or Desktop)
Logged in: Yes (or No)
Device: Droid Turbo 2
Browser: Chrome
Skin: Mobile
Logged In: Yes

I see the ad redirects quite often, very annoying.

#1 in the OP does seem to be fix though.

IB - can we please get #2 fixed? It's beyond infuriating.

Re: New mobile site issues: Annoying as hell edition.

Git hit again with #2 again today telling me I was a lucky winner of a Walmart gift card... Um... Nope...

And I couldn't tell which ad did it as it took over the phone and I had to kill the browser...

Re: New mobile site issues: Annoying as hell edition.

Yup, that's exactly how it happens to me, every time.
1. I load the forum
2. I load a sub-forum.
3. I load a thread.
4. The ad takes over (almost always a different site, but the exact same "Walmart Gift Card" bullshit.)
5. (I refuse to click on the "OK" on the ad because fuck all that bullshit)
6. I kill the browser
7. I re-open the browser
8. I have to quickly hit the 'tabs' button or else it just loads the ad automatically again
9. If I'm not fast enough, repeat from #5. If I AM fast enough, repeat from #1, hoping the ad doesn't kick in again, although I've had it happen 3 times in a row in less than 2 minutes time.

This. is. fucking. ridiculous.

I have a hard time believing that they really care enough at all at this point. IBobi, who has replied here, might care enough to tell us something is being done about it, but really... for IB as a whole, it's all about maximizing the ad revenue on a dying site.

We have paused one of our mobile ad networks -- please let me know if the mobile ad hijacks continue tonight and tomorrow, or if they seem to have stopped...

Re: New mobile site issues: Annoying as hell edition.

I just had an ad hijack happen on my desktop about 15 minutes ago.

Device: Mac OS X 10.10.5
Browser: Chrome 54.0.2840.98
Skin: Desktop
Logged In: No (I was in Incognito mode)

I was on the Hot Deals page for several seconds(http://forum.dvdtalk.com/hot-deals-2/), and I was not doing anything, when suddenly the browser redirected itself to the following URL:

Re: New mobile site issues: Annoying as hell edition.

Is anyone still having issues with ads on *mobile* that are hijacking the browser away from DVDTalk?

Personally haven't seen it in a couple days, no, but it did seem to come and go in waves. So far so good...

Re: New mobile site issues: Annoying as hell edition.

Once or twice. I hit the home button, close the browder, then return to my bookmark. Goes away.

Not a glitch but it's a bummer we can't see the Wiki on mobile and I have mixed feelings about not seeing signatures on mobile, either.

Still happening. Once a day over the last three days. Sites look the same, addresses are all different.

My iPad was just randomly selected. I can't believe how lucky I am when I'm on this website.
