I'd like to keep the reports coming in to one thread if possible so it doesn't clutter the forum front page.

I promise you guys that we are diligently working on this. Last week's ad platform switch was a major success. Got a brand new SSL server. Things are looking up but we still have kinks to work out, so keep the URLs coming. That is the only way we can weed out the bad ones.

We are basically farming out our ads to real industry professionals anymore instead of me trying to do things in-house. It's above my head. I'm a freaking sportswriter/radio guy. I don't know this stuff.

I promise it will continuously get better but we just made the switch last Friday. Gotta give us a little bit of time to get everything running smooth.

Mobile has been a disaster recently. Every time I click a thread link, I get some crazy "you've been selected to win....." type message. Clearly a phishing attempt and I simply close the page, but makes viewing CF on mobile nearly impossible the last few days.

Kept getting the walmart redirect ad on mobile last night. Made the site unusable.

I keep getting the call for support, a lot of mediacom survey ads, even got a google issue on one. The phone app never loads the latest posts under "general discussion, it always gives an error for new posts. Always have to do the "3 finger salute" (ctr-alt-delete)on my PC. Anyone using Kaspersky internet protection software? It always warns me when I go to CF.

On iphone using Safari and nearly everytime I open a page I get a pop up that says "open in app store" and sends me to this link:

Every time I am on mobile, which I usually am, I continually get the "Open this page in the app store?" screen. Even when I click no I still get sent to the page anyways, and I have to open up CF on another page where I will likely get that screen again.

Same issue on a brand new phone

When I exit out of an add pop-up it logs me out. And upon logging back in, I dont actually get logged back in about 75% of the time.
