It’s super annoying. You have to wait for this little animation to finish then close the ad. You can’t do anything while the ad is on.

Again, I’d pay $20/year to get rid of them.

Goddamn these ads are annoying. Can’t they be tethered to a specific part of the page rather than floating at the bottom of the screen constantly? Or surrounding the entire goddamn page?

 

EDIT: I noticed with the ads that, on a phone at least, that you can’t tap anywhere on the bottom half of the page without tapping the ad. This is pissing me off to no end.

Yeah it’s seriously like “my motivating factor to finally get off the boards and live normal life for once” bad. 

 

I don’t want to do that, Chris. STOP TRYING TO MAKE ME.

Just have a membership fee. 

 

Give leople like 20 free posts just so they know what they’re getting, then charge an annual fee. Anything to get rid of this nonsense. Just while typing this, a Honda Insight car raced across my screen, a nut border formed, and I had to wait for a Planet Fitness ad at the bottom to go away because I can’t submit a post while there’s an ad there. I am willing to pay in order to enjoy the site again.

People don't usually comment about non-events.  But I can say that I am experiencing nothing like what I am reading in reports from other people.

I see only a small ad at the bottom of the page that can be X-ed out.  I have not had my screen taken over by any wild ads, neither on my computer nor on my phone.  (I have no ad-blocking software.)

I am experiencing the same. 

Have yet to encounter these pop ups and borders and such.

$20 per user annually sounds fair to me. At the very least, just make it so the ads aren't so damn annoying.

I’d say maybe my iPhone is infected but some of the things happen on my desktop, iPad, and laptop too, so despite wanting to support the site I had to switch on ad-block.

Same boat here.  Y'all just need to stop browsing pron on your phones :P

Ok, so it’s not just me seeing these full-page ads on mobile.

I don't know about y'all but the ads only affect me on mobile and while I'm using data. When I'm on wifi I get the usual pop-up but not the full page ads.

I'm getting the screen framing ads too, and it's annoying as hell. It's not just a one and done pop-up either. It keeps cycling through ads so there's continuously an animated ad around the screen.

These border ads are making it difficult to touch the bottom of my screen. Like the bottom is part of the ad. This is very annoying. When can I sign up for the premium fee?

I don’t expect there to be any type of immediate solution (and possibly none at all) but can we just get an acknolodement that the posts have been received?

That's fair. As a moderator, I can tell you these posts have been received and the concerns passed on to @CC97. He is in constant contact with the ad servers trying to get these issues resolved.

Let's just put the reoccurring ad issues aside and charge a premium fee. I would NOT complain with a $20 annual fee to keep these issues from happening to me, and to everyone else on the boards.
