Just had a page open up the Play Store on chrome/Android, and that was just from letting the page load and not clicking anything.

Hopefully this is the right place to post this, but in Chrome (windows desktop) neogaf.com/forum is redirecting me to indeed.com, some job listing site it seems. Not happening in Firefox.

Haven't had any popups in the last few weeks; but I'm still getting the shit where it jumps directly to the bottom of the page maybe 80% of the time I click a new thread or page.

Last week it was probably a quarter of the time.

Firefox has been crashing on me regularly today, and I'm thinking that it might be caused by an ad here, since all the crashes have immediately followed me opening a new page on NeoGAF. Anybody else seeing anything like this?

Same as these. Automatically redirects, with a pop up on the new site as well.

There are way too many damn ads that are CPU intensive. I've always whitelisted GAF but I'm not gonna deny those ads are killing my overall browsing experience for everything.

I'm watching YouTube right now, which pegs Firefox at 10% CPU (old 2c/4t laptop). Leaving a GAF tab open can bump that anywhere from 30 to 85% and causes my browser to frequently freeze maybe every 15 seconds.

It's a known chrome bug.
https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium...tail?id=704410
It happens if you scroll while the page is loading.

I think a lot of people would love this. The site would probably make more money than it does already, and those of us willing to pay could avoid the occasional malware / porn / redirects.

Shitty navdy ad opens the ad even when I am just trying to scroll away from it. If I touch it at all it opens.

Luckily Google seems to actually give a shit about user experience and ads on this site will likely be auto-blocked whenever they release their chrome updates.

Very few items on my current NeoGAF to-do list for intended features and improvements can plausibly be implemented on our legacy platform. So, with that in mind, I'll mention:

NeoGAF's 2017 Update includes migration over to a modern, versatile forum architecture (identity and familiarity intact); many oft-requested features and refinements; enhanced security and stability; more flexible, rigorous, and easier-to-understand registration options; powerful search tools; and I suppose a modestly priced ad-free Gold option so that ad-free users have a legitimate, equitable, guilt-free browsing option that helps ensure NeoGAF's sustainable future.

Q1ish.

I got a "God's Not Dead 2 is streaming on Pureflix.com" ad.

How did I get an ad like that on this site. Maybe Lionel Mandrake's legendary threads read as a false positive for interest.

Could we have an official response as to why mobile ads on here are truly some of the worst? All I keep reading about is peoples browsers getting hijacked, and now we have APKs attempting to download and quite frankly the silence is deafening.

Hopefully once Google get ad blocking setup as default in Chrome we may get some respite from shitty mobile ads.

Keep getting redirected, it's impossible to report because when i go back (which I'm usually not able to anyway) the ad has changed.
Actually, now that I think of it, i haven't seen ads at all in a while. They just don't appear.
Android btw

Just got another one for Township/Gardenscapes. Guess that's a sign to stop browsing this site on mobile. 😐
