I'll be glad next week when the Overwatch Summer Games event ends, so the ad will too.

I've started seeing random words turned into links by VigLink (eg the word 'Surface' in this thread when someone quotes Surface of Me).

Is this something on your end? Or do I perhaps have something shitty on my computer?

I'm seeing this in one of my posts and a few others. Its annoying, I keep clicking them thinking the poster is purposely referencing something.

I noticed it too. I always hover over a link before clicking it for that very reason and noticed all the redirects.

Okay, so it's not just me. That just happened when I posted in the Battlegrounds thread when I typed in the word phone. I got all worried it was malware, since it directed mentioned ebay in the link I was just there.

I'm on mobile now but I'm pretty sure it was fixed last night. I opted back in and didn't see anything for the remainder of the night.

Holy shit... there's a JC Penny ad (presumably) that plays sound and it's loud as fuck! The ad was cutoff so that I couldn't see what it was displaying, but the sound was for a JC Penny ad. I've had it play in 3 different threads within the last like 2 minutes now.

I reported it using the "report this ad" link.

The ads play video and sound and drag my screen to the bottom when I am trying to post a reply in a thread. Never had this happen before today.

+1 for "this never happened before today" for ads with video and sound. Has only happened at the bottom of the page for me. They play in the normal banner frame so the video is awkwardly cropped. Like it's trying to load the wrong type of ad.

Same issue that's been happening the last few weeks for me on GAF only... redirects from Chrome Desktop, usually accompanied by a threat blocked from Avast.

Usually get this once or twice a day >_<

Video/audio ads used to be at the bottom for me, but just got a Toyota one at the top of the page which kept dragging the focus to it on Chrome Desktop.

I got extra ads at my phone (Android) that at best fucks up the web layout and at worst automatically redirects to a really shady websites. I'm not sure what causes it, but I tried opening some other websites (Google, Facebook, Kotaku) and they seem fine..


EDIT: Opting out from VGLink seems to make the extra ads disappear, but I still got redirected when I submitted my original post.

EDIT2: Noooope. The first image ads still appears :/

I keep getting errors on desktop firefox, not sure if it's related to ads or not.



It's happening super often, happens like 1/3 of the time I try to click on a thread, user, submit a post, go to a different sub-forum etc.

I'm not using ad-blocker or peerblock.

Mobile (android) is quickly becoming unusable with forced redirects to the Play store. Mergedragons or something like that. When you hit back it takes you back two pages instead of to the page the redirect happened on.

Getting forced re-directs to some "you've won an iPhone" bullshit with pages with audio and everything. Can't even hit back on the browser because it's one of those invasive ones.

Running the latest version of Opera on desktop, if that helps.

I keep getting redirects from Gaf lately (1-2 weeks at least). No other website does this.
It happens very frequently as well. VERY annoying.

This is one of a few examples. All the above happend in a second or two ending with a "Congratulations you've won click here" dialog.

It is not just the "2568786" site but 2-3 others as well. I will update this post as I catch them.

Not a particularly malicious ad, but pretty funny so I felt like sharing.
