Yip the past 3-4 days keep getting sporadic pop-up muppet telling me to switch ad-block off,niet naw never no happening. Id rather do without. Add to that crabbit auld T northerner`s photo problems. Then something has been changed, hacked or messed with, Perhaps Hotsocks can shed some light ?
We're having a bit of a nightmare behind the scenes at the moment. Google search crawler has got itself in a bit of an infinite loop at the moment, so is hammering forum requests (yesterday we had 10 million requests). It is eating our "ad free" (ie not showing Proboards ads) in less than a day. We can't seem to work out where it is getting confused and are desperately trying to work it out.
Ad free has turned into endless public safety notices about being aware and thanking me, thanking the Health service and advice to start a pro boards forum to stay safe! I am surprised its not playing a clapping soundtrack 8.00pm every evening as well and telling me to sanitise the keyboard ........ get out of my browser history......!
Other annoying stuff - the loss of the links to the forum uploaded pictures in older threads - IIRC an issue when we went HTTPS or some-such.
Fighting all these crawlers and bots - new forum name John Connor!
