    Is it mobile only? Are you logged in or out when it's happening? Does it happen only on the forum list page?

    Its been happening to me as well - I'm signed into my account on my iPhone, usually on Celtic Chat but it could be happening on other forums as well. Been going on for a week or two now, annoying as *. I keep getting redirected to pop-up windows rather than legit sites tho.

    Glad it hasn't just been me.
    Been going on as long as this thread has been, and still happens today.
    Kept thinking I was accidently touching the ads, but it's not even that.

    Getting frigging annoying as *!

    I tried adblock but it slows down the loading of the forum plus all you get is even bigger ads asking you to turn off your adblocker

    In constant contact with the ad vendors about this. They've made a couple of adjustments and trying to find the culprit. Let me know if you're still getting redirects.

    Are all of these happening on mobile?

    Yup also mobile.
    Desktop is fine, though my adblocker is on (sorry guys).

    Can try without adblocker on desktop tomorrow and see what happens if that info will help at all?

    I wouldn't mind ads if they weren't so intrusive. A site has to pay for maintenance. I get that. Getting redirected to dodgy websites all the time isn't on though. Have adblock installed on desktop to avoid that.
