I had more redirects, this time on desktop. They were very frequent too. Every time I clicked, there was a redirect.

Getting redirected an insane amount of times this week on Android. Jesus people, I know you're on the situation, but you have to turn the screws on those ad folks a lot harder or just outright get rid of them.

I don't even dare to reply on threads unless it is something very short because I know I won't get the chance... At least everything is fine on the desktop side of things.

Browsing on mobile is impossible lately. Super aggressive redirects on Chrome. Ontario, Canada

Does this ad company pay you guys 10x more then the next best alternative or something? What is it exactly that keeps you with them? Can anyone with more experience with web advertising explain that process a bit? I would think someone in charge of a website could just... change ad providers, but either I'm wrong and that's not the case, or I'm right and they're holding out for some reason?

Is it because of an iron-clad contract that can't be voided without legal recourse? Or do they mail gold bars and Resetera just don't want to lose that sweet sweet cash?

Yikes. Invasive ad that creates multiple instances and “closing “ it doesn’t close ur but sometimes blasts the audio.

Sorry about the weekend issues, I've sent an email to the agency with all your details. Thanks for the reports.

website is unusable on mobile
same thing for me in france on iphone - full page bouygues ad with redirects, every 3 seconds approximately .

Extremely annoying.
Same thing here, iPhone SE, using Chrome, from France as well (woah, there're so much french here!). It's almost impossible to use the Forum right now on mobile.

I’m also getting those full page ads again as mention above. It tends to only happen in the morning but it’s relentless. Just typing this complaint made the ad appear FIVE times (Oops, make that 6). And the ad is still Bouygues Immobilier.

Constant redirects on mobile chrome for me as well. It's so bad I'm surprised I even managed to get this message posted.

It’s been very frustrating to use the mobile site today. Every page has been having a pop-up ad. Sometimes multiple times in one page.

iOS chrome.

I think I might've noticed a pattern to my redirects. When I'm in the bathroom at work, I get redirects non-stop. Like sometimes I literally can't even read a thread because I'll repeatedly be redirected out of it. But then when I get home from work, I'll be browsing Era on my phone for hours on end and won't get a single redirect.

So it seems like it might depend on whether you're on mobile internet or WiFi. Maybe your mobile internet service provider makes a difference, too. I'm on Mint Mobile, which is a budget pre-paid plan.

It could just be a coincidence. Either way, the redirects are terrible right now.

I’ve been getting full screen ads since this morning. Very annoying.

Edit: I forget who’s ad it is, but I’ll update when it happens again
