I haven't been able to use the forum for three days now. Amazon's Free Gift Card with a survey ad keeps popping up and there is no way to close it. What gives?

Hmm. I am not seeing that. We do not run pop-up ads that block any part of the screen. Please try clearing your browser cache to see if that helps. Let me know if that fixes it or not. Thanks!

I’ve been getting it to when I use my iPad. I’ve cleared my history several times, and it still pops up.

Went into safari and cleared all website data. Amazon add popped up again. I have to cancel tab and reload. It’s not every time but usually half the time.

So this ad is popping up over / on-top of stuff? Or is it at the bottom of the page?

Takes over the whole page and won’t let you back out. Have to open a new tab. Doesn’t seem to do it on main page....just the forums for me.

Another piece of info is that it seems to pop up 2x and then stop until I access the forums again later. Just FYI

I've been having the same issue and just posted in another part of the forum and a couple others said they have experienced it as well. I thought maybe it was a mobile device issue but it only happens on my IPad

I googled the adware for the Amazon gift card and based on what I read Yahoo!'s site was having the same issue and it looked like it was something internal at a Yahoo vs the site users

OK, thanks guys. I am reporting this to our ad network provider, hopefully they can shut it down asap. Thanks!

Ty sir. For the first time, it happened on the main page this morning. Don’t know if that’s useful?

That's weird. We don't even use the same ad network provider on the main site. Totally different ad network and different code. Will continue to investigate.

Please also see this thread...

ad's have been disabled until we can identify a fix for this.

Thanks
