Title: Too many ads!!!
Post by: Kinetic plasma on December 05, 2017, 07:55:31 AM
 Every time I go on the forums with my phone, an ad will pop up every 30 seconds or less! Even now as I am typing this, ads will interrupt me. I have no idea if you have the power to fix this or not but if you do, please try to look into this or something.

I have exactly 0 ads placed on this site. So they're coming from somewhere else.

My phone does this too, but only when i unplug my phone from being on charge. But I use the forums on my PC and there's no problems. I'd go google it or something.

He is right bob, i have the app too and for some reason i get loads of ads to the point where it will interrupt me every few seconds.

I'll have to check into the app. It's supposed to be limited to the single banner. If there's more than that I'll trash it and start fresh

Yeah it's only on the phone for Google and the app. Ads don't spam me on the PC. In fact, I don't get any ads while I'm on the PC.

i think that's what bob was referring too, however the mobile version has ads for days probably because its not set up that way

I've transitioned the forum over to using tapatalk. I think you'll find it's a lot easier to use than the webview app once you get used to it.

So the ads are fixed?

I don't have any control over the ads on the current app. See the thread I just posted in site news for the tapatalk info.

I don't know what you mean. The closest thing to the forums on a phone is a web browser and using the full, fat forums. Tapatalk is a mobile optimized forum software that works with preexisting sites. The old android app is just a webview app with some convenience buttons.

Do you know where there coming from? They seem to appear every 20 seconds. It's weird considering you didn't put them there.

They come from the app provider. We don't make anything from those, as I don't put ads on anything because I personally don't like ads and I adblock everything, so I wouldn't expect anyone else to like them either. But they're pretty much unavoidable in the phone world.

That's what i thought, weird how even ad-block fails now. Soon everything will be filled with ads.
