Problem with ads

When looking at screenshots here, I’ve been getting hijacked by an advertisement that takes me to another screen, mostly white with a clickable ad box. At the top there is text that says it will return me to my page in 10 seconds as it starts a coundown.  This has happened at least 5 times in the past couple of days on two different computers and browsers. 

Edit:  The site is go.goadvs.com

That definitively isn’t OK. I’ve contacted the ad partner again and stopped advertising through them, currently, all advertising is directly done by AG (which is limited in amount), it’ll be like that for the coming period as we re-evaluate the usage of ad partners

The ad partner made a lot of changes to their current setup and going forward it’ll either be a gaming campaign (like you see now) or directly revert back to ourselves so we can run house-ads (Like we’re now doing for Duke).

If you see -anything- strange or weird please let me know and I’ll directly action it.

Thanks, CaliMonk.  The redirect issue seems to have been resolved soon after your post in October.  Sorry I didn’t let you know sooner.

the site has been eaten up by the ‘yesterday origins’ add on androids, half the page holds the add and pressing anywhere directs to steam.. check it out guys

     

if everyone here has been just a just bit conservative; stop making all those daily intense posts, we may could ‘ve been able to catch up with any of them, as no one have been able to catch up with all these recent intensive forums activities

I had the same problem with my Iphone. Clicking on any link took you to steam.

Should be better now, my bad here, sorry.

The site isn’t very optimized for use on mobile/tablets, in my efforts to ensure it is, I underestimated the amount of people already using the website through their phone and left that in a semi-broken state last night. Made further adjustments right now that should mean it’s usable on the phone again, better than before.

Additional changes were made over the weekend that make me feel that it’s fairly good on a tablet now, certainly not the same level as a redesign would do, but making progress nontheless. I’ll make further mobile changes in the coming period to ensure we get towards a more optimal setup there as well.

Could you be a bit more specific? I’m currently working on ensuring the site is optimized on mobile, big steps made but also enough left.

Could you let me know which phone and what browser? Stock browser or Chrome? I’ve tried to test as many devices as I have but will see if I can find other ways.
