It's annoying enough that one of my e-mails gets spammed to shit with GOP crap from some "think tank" that bought e-mail lists, reporting these ads on the ad when I can but it doesn't seem to really work too well. Probably not breaking rules or anything but still fucking annoying to keep seeing.
This fucker keeps coming up. On Android, chrome, pixel 3 xl.
I have been getting other ads, on other sites. Some with sound.
Those definitely shouldn't be happening and will be stopped.
Super obtrusive side ads have started to appear this morning, a Disney one and another.
Chrome on mobile.
Also getting the Disney side ads here. They are positioned so that you'll accidentally clicked them while trying to scroll.
...and I got one while trying to write this post. On Android + Chrome.
I have the super intrusive Disney side ads appearing on mobile as well.
Not gonna lie, this pisses me off far more then I can put into words. Only shows up on my desktop but please remove this.
Getting something (assuming it's a ad) that's forcefully redirecting me to 'Dollar Creative' (dollarcreative.com) on standard PC Firefox.
Also getting the Disney ads
Yeah please get rid of the annoying Disney ad on mobile that pops on the side of the screen every 5 God damn seconds.
Still getting the Disney pop-overs.
Once again getting the Disney side ads, now they reopen after 20-30 seconds if you close the ad, after 4th close on a page it slide back in with an Amazon banner ad stuck under it as well.
getting various side ads on android
problem with them is that once I close them I can no longer click on anything in the forum
Now the Disney ads are randomly not closing when I try to x out of them.
Got a "Visit Portugal" ad that had an autoplay video on it, that would restart each time you switch tabs.
I'm getting the side ads for Disney and best buy on mobile. The Disney ones just keep reopening and the best buy ones stay in the middle of my screen with no way to close them.
More Disney ads, popping in from the right side
I'm going to have to use a pop up blocker on mobile
The middle of the screen adds literally make the site unusable in chrome/android
When I close them they open again
Most of the time I have to refresh the page because i can't click on anything else
Our partners are aware of the side-ads and have been working to kill them. We've emphasized the urgency of this to them.
At least the one we get about the local sports ball team has a nicer looking ad. It still covers 30% of the screen but it looks nice.
Edge Win10 browser getting auto-redirects due to ads a few times a week for the last two weeks. I'll report the ads more as I catch them, if it keeps occurring.
Not necessarily an ad report, but I've whitelisted ResetEra and am still not seeing ads. Is this normal? (using AdGuard)
It seems like the site space where ads would be loads up, but ads fail to show.
edit: this seems to be slightly inconsistent. On the "edit post" page sometimes I see ads load successfully.
Just had a Best Buy ad pop up on mobile across the entire middle of the screen. Like the Disney one, but stretched across to the other side.
Still getting dodgy Edge redirects to harmful trojan horse scripts, DON'T CLICK -
Goes from this:
I'm getting a lot of pop over ads for some frying pan on Android. It slides up from the bottom of the screen then stops and obscures half of the forum.
Ads for Circulon cooking pans, comes in from right side. Android and Chrome
Also the Disney ones seem to be back
these scrolling ads are getting a little out of hand, still getting the Disney ones and now a new Best Buy Black Friday ad has entered the fray
The Disney one is back, along with a frying pan one as well.
The frying pan side-ad is really obnoxious(it spins). Still seeing Disney too. Any progress hunting them down with the ad providers? Is there any info (links, etc.) that would be helpful?
Just got a voiced ad on my phone that opened Play Store.
Also just got the voiced ad with play store. Was for some device cleaner app.
+1 for voice ad/ ap store redirect.
Also just got that voice ad/play store redirect. As well as those pop up pan and Disney ads.
Thank god I'm not alone. Had an app store redirect just now.
Getting hit hard with the play store redirect ad.
Got an ad with voice and playtime once. Walmart gift card second .
Mine is... interesting. Got a voice one saying "your phone is running low on memory" so I rolled my eyes and left the redirect. Phone started having issues just now and while charging it went to an offscreen mode and had to reset. Did that twice now and apparently my battery dropped a lot the second time for no apparent reason.
Phone hasn't had any issues so far until today, so not sure if it was coincidental timing, or if that ad added some crap on my phone :/
After missing for more than one year, the report ad button is back?
Just got hijacked by this ad, desktop using Firefox.
Can you guys sticky this thread? It's a pain in the arse to find.
