This is my second try posting this. Aggressive pop up advertisement is redirecting me to some commercial site claiming I've won stuff.
This happens time and time again here when I'm on my phone and it really kills the fun and I have to close to advertisement tab and reopen the dark city and go to the destination I've been and...

Can you guys do something against that?

Is it the same sort of thing as shown here?

Yeah. Only in German and with different but similar layout of course.

Okay, our technical expertise is somewhat limited amongst the moderating staff these days but Gobs has passed it on to someone who will hopefully be able to help. I'll nudge him to remind him.

Thanks man!
It's like gambling right now if I reach the post I want and can comment.

Until it is resolved I can only recommend using the Plug-In called "AdBlock Plus" for Firefox. It's free and it blocks EVERYTHING and ALWAYS. I've been using it for years and have got so used to not seeing any advertisements ever anymore that I'm quite shocked whenever I use some other computer than mine... Razz

I have sought technical help, and I have been searching through the help forum of our provider, and elsewhere on the Web. Haven't found anything definitive yet, but hopefully I can spend a lot more time on it this weekend.

I will let you know as soon as I find anything.

I've also been having some issues. In a few threads (most recently the transports one, I believe) I'm always greeted with a redirect by chrome due to potentionally malicious content. Now, of course I trust the integrity of my fellow denizens of the Dark City (famous last words, I know), but I do think that something needs to be done about this.

Not that it'll stop me from lurking in the shadows here, of course.

Sad to hear issues with adverts on the forum, I stopped using sites such as BoLS due to their aggressive ads and would hate for one of our users to do something similar.

The main way to fix this is to kindly ask for donations.
