New ad provider. Please report issues

Post by Steven » Tue Jun 19, 2018 9:56 pm

All,

We're evaluating a new ad provider.
There are currently no changes in ad locations (though the banner at the very bottom of the forum pages may be a bit bigger).

Please keep your eyes open for strange ads, or other annoyances, and let me know!

Thanks!

One of the Ads today is for the scam bitcoin pages that have widely been reported to be illegally using fake celebrity endorsements.

I have also had my MalwareBytes block a suspicious domain a few times since Christmas when viewing the Renault power unit thread viewtopic.php?f=4&t=22079&start=2460

I immediately notified Steven about your report on this, thanks! We'll get to the bottom of it. I advise anyone who is confronted by any bitcoin ad to not click the ad, not here or anywhere else. Apparently websites like facebook are being hit by it as well, falsely quoting celebrities and credible news outlets.

Regarding the renault power unit topic: that is indeed strange. Maybe there is something going on with one of the images. We will look into that as well.

EDIT: Should anybody experience this, please make a screenshot and post it here or contact us to send it over.
