Can everyone who gets these pop ups and redirects give me a URL and a screenshot of this?

No, as stated I'm on a desktop PC with win 10. Next time it happens I'll grab a screenshot and upload it here, it's hit and miss how frequently it occurs though. Often it'll go to those "your computer is at risk" or "please install the latest version of Flash/Java" type pages or similar spam sites. I've even had it redirect to porn game pages which is definitely not a good look on an all ages site. As I stated earlier this PC is totally clean and scanned weekly to keep it that way. Another page that'll pop up often is the "Brit Method" money scam page, though there are also less shady seeming regular advertisements that pop up too. It usually happens when I've left a page open for a while and left my desk to make a coffee and I'll come back to the spam page where the forum used to be.

Please do get a screen grab and if you can copy paste the URL for the redirect.

Re: Ads popping up while browsing forum?

I'm wondering if it's the chat. Is anyone else getting this error message?

Have you used a browser cleaner before? If it's something that's stuck on your browser every time you visit the site, I would recommend cleaning it up, especially the porn redirects. I'll send this to our programmatic guy to reach out to our ad providers but if you're the only one getting it, it's likely on your end tbh.

Also... do you have a bigger image? you can email me. and what version of chrome? any extensions?
