I am in Germany, at the moment.

Was on Android/Chrome, and the 'lucky' site,which then forwards to an Amazon looking site (http://luckyguys.xyz/prize/de-lucky/lp3 ... ting_name= deleted&tablet=2&rheight=0&rwidth=0)
Android/Firefox so far has not shown it.

My iphone is cycling between these two adds:

https://www.7year.co/food-nutrition/one ... commended/

Edit: more precisely it is always newlucky, but if one tries the backwards button, then it cycles between the two.

Newlucky for me, too (android/chrome/Netherlands). Including when opening this topic.

Nice. F1T is not usable at the moment due to this annoying spam/ad. (On the mobile, once it pops up you cant get back)

Funny enough, I seem to get it on an iphone but not on an ipad. Same IP, but on a PC with Firefox, no problems at all. So is it an iphone thing specifically?

No, see above, with Android and Chrome it happens as well (switched to Firefox on Android, and it doesn't happen)

Indeed. Android/chrome, all the time. Windows/chrome on PC- never.

Come on F1Technical, this is not good enough, get your ad providor sorted out otherwise you`ll lose a lot of traffic!

Android / Chrome / Germany

Same as described by the others. Super intrusive.... But at least I can use "back" to get back to the previous page without closing the tab.

BTW. Just now I also got an NSFW redirect.... Not cool

I'm so sorry guys!

I have passed on all the information that I have, and requested urgent action.

If there's no improvement, I'll look into disabling ads for a little while
(even though it's the only way we get to pay our bills).

I don't get these on my desktop with firefox, even though adblocker is disabled for the forum.
On my mobile Pi-hole blocks them just fine.

I was told some changes were made.
