I can barely use this site for a full minute before getting one of these pop ups that hijack the tab. I’m on IPhone if that helps and have no issues on any other site.
Seriously, it’s somehow getting worse! I’m on IPad. It took me minutes just to get here to report this lol seriously feel like I’m loosing my mind. This is really a bummer, I love this site, and use it quite religiously, but damn this is getting rough..🥺
Here’s the link..

Hi there

We are working with the ad network to track these down, I'm really sorry you are experiencing this.

If this is bc i dont have Pro and or use some ad blocker thing, which i thought i was doing right by the site by NOT using one, sucks 😢 . Im not even mad, just disappointed...

In honest opinion, I'd like to turn off my adblocker, but each time I do to check how bad it is, I am both getting worried for my PC's safety in regards to links and restraint, and also with the ads filling more than 50% on the visible part of the website, makes me turn it back on really quickly.

Keeping an eye on this thread 🍿🍺, mostly so that I know when I can turn my adblocker off again.

The ads are appearing again for me. I realized it's only one ad, and it's in between my Twitter feed on the right of the home page. It almost always appear after TA auto tweets a milestone.
That ad is coming from Twitter itself. Not TA.
Sorry for replying so late. I haven't exactly been checking my threads.

It's surprising, however, that the ad is coming from Twitter itself. I use Twitter extensively, and the only ads I see are promoted tweets (and they hardly appear), not product ads.

Anyway it doesn't matter for me - I removed my Twitter feed from TA homepage. No issues since.

Having a similar problem. Am in an ipad and I keep getting a popup advert that stops me navigating the site.

Also, the same thing happens on xbox 360 achievements, so they have the same ad causing it.

The ad network are just trialing some new anti-popup software on TSA that will hopefully stop these. As soon as we know it works we'll roll it out to TA.

I am also experiencing a pop up which completely interrupts me accessing this website.....

...or similar. If I add it to the block list, I just get a “similar” but slightly different one replacing it.

Hopefully this is what you are referring to as the known issue which will hopefully be resolved soon!
