    Help! This only started a week ago, and it happens every time I'm on the forum now, usually as soon as I go to a page, or definitely by the 2nd page.

    It shows an ATT winning something page, but the link at the top is:
    http://happy.luckyparkclub.com/bonu..._name=Desktop&tablet=4&rheight=768&rwidth=768

    If you hit 'back' it loads another ad page, so I have to log out and log back in. It took me 6 times to be able to get this written without the ad stopping me before I got here. Hopefully I'll be able to get to it to read the answer.

    Is this a virus I need to do something about? Is it happening to others?

    It's worse than getting Fee's bacon!

    Thank you!

    Same problem here since this morning, getting a full page ad to (1) Reward Pending

    Had to navigate to this post at least 8 times before I was able to post this complaint, as 90% of page loads are interrupted by it.

    Now I'm getting a Verizon lucky winner ad on my laptop that redirects me to their page/popup.

    It's happened enough that my 'Quick Links' icon for gatorcountry when I open a new browser tab is now the logo of the advertisement.

    Thanks, I have reported the above issues.

    It would be extremely helpful if you would get a screenshot of the ad (s) or the URL of the ad,

    Also same. I reinstalled an ablocker specifically because of the ads on this site, and it made them go away. But I actually hate blocking them. I know sites need revenue (though I've never intentionally clicked on a banner ad in my life). And adblocking software breaks a lot of sites I need to visit for work, so I constantly have to mess with whitelisting. If premium/VIP members could get an ad-free experience I'd sign back up. I've just been a lot more cautious about monthly spending after a period of unemployment last winter.

    For the ads that are intrusive and block access, if you would please try to get the url of the ad and even better a screen shot and I can send that to the ad guy.

    Thanks

    Why do I need a “google vignette”? Pop ups on chrome browser in IOS on an 11. I get a full page pop up every time I leave the site for more than 30 mins and revisit.
