Default Help, being Adtact!!

I cant even moderate, everywhere I go I get blasted with a full page ad for a sprinter using my android. Cant a moderator be exempt from ads? I got on this spot by clicking really fast. The stupid ad takes up the whole screen with no way to close it or scroll around it.

Adblocker Plus Bill.


I don't know if it works on smartphones, but on my home computer I have ad blocker plus and I don't have to see any of those annoying ads.

99.9% of the time I visit PZ it’s on my iPad. Other than a stray thumb I don’t have issues with adds.

It’s coming up on iPhone also. iPad works fine. I’ve notified admin but they can’t fix it so far.

Hello there,

Grab us some screenshots so I can get this sent to the techs.
What's your general area/IP?
Not sure if this will work, but try clearing your caches and cookies since the ads could be based on those.

Go to PZ on iPhone or android, exit enhanced mobile view for full site and the ad should pop up for you.

Iíve cleared cookies and cache and it still comes up.

Ok, guess not. Here's some screenshots. All three of the same thread. Trying to let yall see just how obtrusive the ad is when it covers the whole dang first post. I understand the site has to make money, but that is ridiculous.

So far, I can't replicate this. I need the URL of the ad to block it.

I you viewing the full site from your phone or using Tapalatalk or mobile view?

For those of you using the full site, try using enhanced mobile view or Tapatalk.
