    Default Got clickjacked on mobile

    First click sent me to a survey, another one said I won something, a popup tried to get me to buy makeup and also sent me to the android app store. I ran an anti-virus scan on my phone right after and nothing came up so I've got to assume it's site-related.

    Yeah, you've got on-click ads (some very NSFW) even on browsers. It's definitely the site and it's pretty much unusable right now.

    Agreed. Not a fan.
    I realize I'm complaining about free content but if you're seeking feedback there are better options than these pop up ads.

    The issue isn't so much ads, but rather the content of said advertisements.

    I use AdBlock for things usually, but here & another forum are exceptions to that rule. I don't mind ad's, but please make sure they're not harmful or NSFW shit that isn't needed.

    I had an issue like this on another forum I use, and it got so bad I resorted to using AdBlock there. I don't like doing that at all. If I enjoy a site, let them make cash off me using ad revenue.

    Is anybody looking into this? The issue is not only the content but also definitely the ads themselves. You can't even click on a majority of things on the site..

    Just wanted to write about that, I can't browse homepage on my mobile anymore... You are ruining your SEO as well with that stuff.

    I've had no problems when running on Tapatalk but yeah, checked it out on PC and yeah, it's all kind of awful.

    A thread was started in the mods forum so hopefully Doc can address it.

    my question axel is, is it a virus or new site policy? personally i can't click on any part of any page on this site right now and not get a pop up add.

    We (mods who know nothing) believe it's virus. Doc is on vacation which is why it's likely gone on as long as it has. We've reached out to Arsenalist and hope he can help.

    Just an fyi: a Google search for Raptors Republic forums results in a "This site may be hacked" warning for the fourth result (forums.raptorsrepublic.com).

    Not sure if anyone's pointed it out yet.
