    No user interaction is required

    It happens as more and more ads load in on the page

    It happened to the most recent post in a thread the two times I saw it. Patreon, so no ads were involved for me.

    ^^Still seems to be an issue for me. The site has become almost unusable for me on mobile if I want to read replies to a thread opposed to just the OP

    Been having an issue with a large-ish pop up ad, whenever I try and close it just opens a new tab and refuses to close. Always coming in from the bottom of the screen

    I just had 3 popup ads on gbatemp hijack my phone's browser so I had to back out of the website to try again. This was after scrolling down on the homepage for a few seconds.

    Howdy, More Ad non-sense, This popped up on my pc after I left it on the homepage for a couple of seconds

    I know hicc ups happen now and then, so not too worried about it, but just thought you should know.
    Also I don't usually go through the sub forums, I mostly just go through recent and newsworthy, but going through this one, I noticed that there's ads within the thread list

    I'm pretty sure the thread list ones are supposed to be there.

    We send every single report manually to our ad providers who take immediate action. There's not much more we can do at this point.

    This is the URL I got redirected to on my phone. It's one of the annoying "congratulations you won" ads that don't let you go back, buzzes your phone, and takes over your tab. I used to get them all the time like a year ago, then almost never, and now they are becoming semi-frequent again so I hope this helps to determine where they're coming from.

    Can I just pay $20 to get ads removed from my account?

    Actually, one of the perks for our Patreon is that you can browse the site ad free:)

    https://www.patreon.com/gbatemp

    I believe the $2 tier can go ad-free, despite what it says there (but @Costello can confirm for sure!)

    $2 a month for ad-free is reasonable, but $5 a month seems a bit excessive.

    I used to browse this site a lot more than I do now, now there are ads everywhere, shame I understand the reasoning, but when you have limited data, I load the page up and turn data off so it doesn't drain my data.
