Screenshot_20200325-044140.pngAs reading this I had an ad pop up. On the bottom of the screen. Only use mobile version. I don't know if it's related or just a coincidence.

It’s starting to be a huge pain in the ass.
You hit these ads with your thumb without even knowing it and you end up leaving the site.
Whenever you’re getting paid to add that to the site it’s not worth it.

Note to @Admin or @sHORTY

There are pop-over ads coming up from the bottom of the screen and covering half of my ipad screen on every page refresh.
Makes the site essential unusable.

iPad using chrome browser

Thanks for any help.

Edit: also notice now notice a large static ad inserting itself between the last post in a thread and the reply editor box.
It says in the margin “powered by Feed Network”

Edit: Just checked same story on ipad with safari browse.

Ok, I get it.. So how much is it going to cost to upgrade my existing account so that I won’t have to see theses ads??
Unrelated to account status -- still seeing it as a lIfe member.

Or this is their way of unveiling a new Patron Member tier? :)

The infolinks ads are a royal pain. I've gone through my firefox browser options again and until today have never had an issue. The take a look I can live with as it only pops up at the end of a thread. The infolinks sux because it pops up an every new screen.
