    Ads from smartphone

    Hi all, your website is the only one that randomly changes pages from the ones I'm reading to some crap ad that I can't even do anything about (because it refreshes itself if I hit "back" in the browser. This from mobile, it's extremely annoying, so I gave up on reading it from there.
    It doesn't happen all the time, but when it happens it's disturbing, I kill the page and move on with my life. It triggers from the main page or any forum page, sometimes after my phone was idle for a bit, sometimes just scrolling, and I'm extremely careful to not even touch a banner, it's a trasparent layer over the page that does this trick for what it seems.

    The phone is a S7, but it did the same on the old S4. Browser Chrome. OS is of course Android.

    Of course, some of these pages also open other pages and it gets ugly from there, I got even charged 5 € for a service I didn't ask, which I'll have now to litigate with my phone company, because it's a matter of principle.

    Regards.

    None of that behavior is intended. If you can get URLs from the browser history we can try and track it down.

    These popped one from the other, tonight at 20.04 GMT+1
    In the past it was different ones.

    Thanks for checking out.

    Happens to me as well often. Usually when I load up the front page. Next time it happens I'll let you know what it is. Running iPhone 5S latest firmware.

    I'm having the same redirect problems on an iPad.

    I only suffer redirect problems when on mmo-c starting a week or so back.

    mmo-c is virtually impossible to use now. Been getting spammed with redirects to:

    Its been an issue with this site for years, but honestly, this has just gotten out of control. I just spent the last 15 minutes creating a new thread on a really personal subject. I was done typing and just reviewing for typos when your site redirected me to king.com. It deleted everything I typed. Please, I know these requests usually don't get fixed for a long time if ever. Hell, the Target mobile pop-ups were allowed to stay for the full Christmas season in 2014 no matter how many reports they got. I would really appreciate that this get addressed though.

    Without URLs to figure out what ads are causing the problem there isn't a ton I can do.

    I'm getting redirects to umcortexas . com and krtdg . com

    Both are the same "Virus Warning" phishing sites.

    Got one today, looking-foraffair.com what's up with that?
    Looked like straight out porn, and it has been ages since redirects or popups like that took place, like 20 years when you could get like trillions of popups because troll virus. And I don't want porn on my computer you see.
    I don't want to use adblock, and I shouldn't have to. Really does not give a serious impression of mmo-champion.
    You hoped it was over but Murky is back

    I provided those in a post above a week or two ago, yet nothing has changed.

    if you can't fix this please delete my mmo-c account as your site is virtually useless.

    Any URLs posted are passed on to the ad team to ban. New bad ads are appearing faster than people report them and we are only using Google for ads right now, so it isn't us using any low quality ad networks for mobile or something like that. We are doing everything we can.
