Was nailed by redirects this morning on Android/Chrome, including while trying to post in this thread. Not sure if fixed yet.

I thought you would like to know that ResetEra is currently showing Australian political ads on the website but it seems to be only positive ones for The Liberal Party and The National Party (aka Australia's equivalent of the USA's Republicans) and attack ads on The Labour Party (aka Australia's equivalent of the USA's Democrats).
the politician pictured is Bill Shorten
leader of the Labour Party
and that is a Liberal Party attack ad
'THE BILL AUSTRALIA CAN'T AFFORD'
in Australia, The Liberal Party is the conservative party
Don't know enough about Aussie politics to determine if this is inappropriate, but it's worth looking into.

Mobile version is unusable for me since yesterday on Safari - IOS - I'm in France (obviously)
Chrome was ok for a while, but it's now the same.

Staying a few seconds on any thread / page triggers a full page pop up with this :

Yeah that's not supposed to be happening.

I've reached out to our partners about the latest reports and they're looking into it.

When ads in the bottom cell rotate they close the keyboard when I'm typing in quick reply on Android Chrome. Presumably they're stealing focus. Pls fix.

Can yall get your fucking shit together and drop whoever the ad provider is for this fucking website.

This shit doesn't happen on any other site I visit. Only this one. Holy fucking shit this website is unusable on mobile mode today. Yall keep fixing one issue only for twenty more to pop up. I've had to refresh typing this post to complain literally 20 times because the redirect ads immediately attack me when I even look at my phone.

Was using Android chrome and it was unusable. Now on Firefox with adblocker and I can use it. One ad had the word 'dragon' on it. They always redirected me. Walmart and iphone card bullshit.

The same thing happened with GAF. Hardly ANY other site I've seen had the amount of malicious mobile ads to the extent that it felt like it had to be the particular provider.

I thought I heard that Era picked a different provider than GAF but who knows what the situation is.

I can basically never report them either since they somehow erase history and takeover new tabs.

Why is it always this site and no other one? Do you guys get your ads from the shadiest ad provider in the world or what.

Site is completely unusable. Walmart ad pops up everywhere. Can't reply to threads. It happens like every other page. Complete cancer. What is this, some kind of bootleg stream website?

BTW I got another Samsung garbage "virus" ad and iPhone gift card ad trying to type this.

Full screen popup that backloads your history so you have to quit the browser.

Can we pretty please get a mod response in this thread to make us feel better, if nothing else? nihilence replied in the off-topic thread but that one got locked and there hasn't been a single response here today despite this being the worst attack possibly since the inception of Era.

Some people are literally unable to post in the ad reporting thread or on Era at all without resorting to desktop clients, completely disabling Javascript, and so forth. It's not just a case of mobile being bad, it's a case of the site not actually functioning for multiple people -- pretty much anyone with Chrome seems at risk at minimum.

Currently unable to use Era on my phone without constant ads from Walmart or other sites. I had to refresh this page literally 5 times in order to make this post.

I'm on T-Mobile. I use chrome. I do not have this issue with any other site that I visit. Not a single one.

You can request Desktop Version from Chrome settings, which is what I'm doing :)

Desktop site works perfectly fine.

Mobile is well and truly fucked. Constant (malicious according to my anti-virus, btw) redirects to mediamarket-giveaway.life

EDIT: Last admin response to thread was a week ago. Oh. That's... bad. No one is even reading this. SMH.

It's a mass Chrome and/or Android exploit. I'm not sure if it's affecting any other browser or OS.

I posted a thread on Joe Biden yesterday, and literally within 2 minutes the thread was locked with a response from a mod. It's been a full week of total silence in this thread. Feels like this thread is just a place to contain complaints so they don't spill over. This is actually making the site unusable.

Maybe I should post another Joe Biden thread, with the malicious ad details instead. At least it wouldn't take a week for a response.
