Yes. Constantly. And I DO have pop up ads blocked on my phone. It still happens with this board. (No other websites)
This is exactly me on my iPhone and iPad. Only this site. I really wish someone from DIS would respond as well.This site is 100% unusable for me on mobile as of the last couple of days. As soon as I go to the web site on my iphone, I get a "congratulations" type pop up. It used to be occasional to sometimes frequent (before the board upgrade), then it stopped for awhile, now it's back with a vengeance.
I was wondering about that. Even if there's just a "we're aware of the problem and we're working on it" would be nice.I sure wish someone from the DIS actually read and responded to the Tech Support forum.
Agreed. It's time to address this.I was wondering about that. Even if there's just a "we're aware of the problem and we're working on it" would be nice.
It's nice to know complaints have been heard.
Even if the answer is "that's just the way it is". At least we'd know.
And here I am without ever having experienced the pop-up issue. No matter how hard I try!
Wouldn't that likely affect other websites? Could there be malware that ONLY affects the DIS? That seems odd.Has it been suggested in this thread to run a Malware scanner like Malwarebytes. I have never gotten pop ups at all on my work or home computers. Also check your browser for extensions like alternative search bars and stupid stuff like coupon finders or some such nonsense.
Apps on your phone can also create pop ups and redirects. I installed something once on my phone and it was horrible.
