    I still do not approve of the autoplay videos, even if you can turn them off. I mean, look at this thread, we're constantly getting people asking how to turn them off. Not only that, but autoplay video ads are unprofessional and annoying.
    They need to be removed entirely.

    How about you do something about those pop up redirect ads that effect mobile devices. This is the ONLY website that I experience these redirects on.

    It's being worked on. In the meantime go ahead and report them with a screenshot so it can be forwarded to the ad provider. Speaking of which, I got another redirect ad:

    Even getting redirected into the play store app from this website! This needs to be adressed along with the hijacking ads! They have been going on long enough where it is pretty clear they are here on purpose. Enjoy the downfall of your site mods, even typing this simple post I was redirected from this page 5 TIMES. Completly unacceptable....

    At the very least at this point it should be more than clear that this ad network is incompetent and just drop them and than move to someone else. They have been nothing but trouble since day 1 and have progressively getting worse.

    We're very sorry and have contacted the ad network again.

    It's not as bad as you say, for a good two months there were no bad ads anymore, so there has to be something they can do!

    thanks, and I hope people realize the ad revenue is in part redistributed to the community under the form of competitions, donations, such as the Homebrew bounty, Tempmas, and other events :)
    so while a few have to suffer these bad ads while we try to fix them, keep in mind that there will be compensation. Tempmas is going to kick ass again this year ;)

    Hi. Are those games videos displaying on the right also from Ads network? I guess "Autoplay" can't be disabled.

    You can disable them in your Preferences

    Enable the "Disable affiliate videos" option

    I keep getting redirected and have unclosable ads on the bottom of my phone. I have tried 5 times to post this message and had to type it in notepad and paste on on the thread to get it there before i get redirected

    This is the site I keep getting redirected to fro. The ads:


    http://other-f71.club/lp/96d1bcba-a080-4faf-870c-53d287146d84/?aclid=1543551469759027&cid=712&pid=203&parm5=gbatemp.net&parm4=188855239&parm3=rhythmone_bidder&parm2=0&parm1={CAMPAIGN}&fid=3742&clk=80015219&uid=3&ip=67.197.205.202&code=US&city=Lancaster&os=Android&brand=Generic&model=Smartphone&isp=Comporium&language=en&country=United+States#T

    As you can see from the attached screen shot it redirects multiple times

    I cant even view the site at all for more than like 10 seconds before I get redirected anywhere at all I'm redirected to that same link over and over different mobile browser or anything I'm still redirected.

    Yeah I got a couple today and a few at work yesterday. Kind of embarrassing to be on break and suddenly my phone says "CONGRATULATIONS!" as loud as possible. You'd think Google would have been able to stop the hijackings after all these years, either through chrome or at the OS level.

    Just here to back up that the pop up mobile ads need to be stopped. I'm not touching my screen and it still happens every 15-20 seconds. It's not cool and I appreciate that it is working to be changed. Ads are fine, I understand their necessity, but not like this.

    Again (if you've read this thread) could you please be as specific as possible so that we can ask our ad network to look into it and make it stop.
    It has worked before, and it will work again if you can just report all the info.
    What we need is like a screenshot and the URL of the ad page.

    I may have found a temporary solution for anyone who's on Chrome on Android. While on the site, tap the three dots next to the address bar, and then the i with the circle around it, you should see this:
    Screenshot
    You want pop-ups and redirects set to Blocked.

    thanks, I have reported all that to our network.

    they have replied already (even on a Saturday which is nice of them)

    upload_2018-12-1_16-12-40.

    Please do keep reporting anything you get.
    Eventually those SOBs running bad ads will get blacklisted and we'll be good again.
