Seems like this place is turning into a joke. I have problems having the home page refresh or load.

Oh yeah, my problems are on my computer. Seems like to me, get your shit done, and get the fuck out of this place, fast.

I think your post is the first report of a pop-up on a computer instead of a phone. Does that mean this issue is going to get worse before it gets better? Anybody else get pop-ups on a pc?
Sorry, no pop ups, but for me the website is very very very slow, it was just a bitch for me to post this.
I would suggest opening a separate thread about website performance or a Support Request since this is not related to the mobile platform ad redirects (that is being monitored/managed by the third party ad provider).
This has happened about 15 times now in the last 10 minutes

Edit: Have gotten this about 7x in the last 10 minutes.
This is bordering on the ridiculous. Can barely even post without getting hit. Got this one 4-5 times consecutively.

Took multiple tries to get to this page to report. Kept getting hammered.
Got the same page as the post above.
I can’t even log onto BA for 5 minutes without being beated to death by the same amazon pop up. Please fix. I am working on a trade.
Same Amazon pop up as noted above...
Chrome- latest version
Has anyone tried this?(on Chrome)
Click on the 3 dots in the upper right corner.
Click on Settings.
Click on Site Settings. There's an option to block popups.
Same Amazon pop-up as noted above. Android 8.0.0
The Chrome setting mentioned in the last comment is turned on by default and does not deflect the malware. The ad provider you are using is shit. This same thing happens every other week.
I don't get the pop-ups often, but when I do, they only show up right after I log off. Maybe that info will help pinpoint the issue?
Came on here to say something along these lines. I was trying to copy the URL from the pop-up, and after getting sabotaged by the same pop-up SIX times on my phone, gave up and used the laptop.
This is affecting my usage of the site for sure. And I imagine there are many instances that aren't being reported here. If I'm on the site for more than 90 seconds, I get the pop-up and have to start again. I hope there's a solution in the offing.
EDIT: Just for clarity's sake, even though it's on my post above this...
Chrome (latest version)
@Advally - any update for this? Or would that better be directed at a site administrator?
Same here after about 20 seconds get a redirect to amazon page can't barely check a message on my phone
Twice again now
I've been getting the Amazon pop up for a couple month,but today seemed to be non stop. A friend (@azuelke ) recommended deleting an app I use (HQ LIVE) and it since has stopped. Tanks Adam!

Just ridiculous at this point. Your ad company must be giving you an amazing deal for you guys to be willing to have your forum users deal with this shit, for months at this point.
It is happening almost non-stop at this point. Iphone7
Can’t get a post up right now.
I don't run into any of this on my Pixel/Chrome, but I feel everyone's frustration. And I'd love to get rid of all ads, but unless more of our users are willing to become Premium Members (no ads), buy a subscription to the mag, attend a BA Fest, and whatnot, ads are necessary to help pay the bills.
Regardless, this shouldn't be happening so frequently. Advally has been alerted.
Thanks for your patience.
You need to switch to an ad company that can fix this issue. Your site is unusable .
Three more times trying to post this.
Thank you for acknowledging these posts. I was starting to feel like we were shouting into the void, especially since the AdValley rep hasn't been active after showing up - though I do appreciate that the rep went to extra mile to get on here and put a "face" to the problem. I got on here on my laptop so I could post this.
Is it safe to assume you're an ad-free premium subscriber?
Or does this have something to do with various phones that the user base has?
I think this is completely understandable, but...
At least on a mobile platform. Knock on wood, I've yet to have any issue on a laptop (Windows or Mac). But I've also not had any similar issues on any other website on my phone.
Thanks in advance for getting this fixed. It really has made navigating the website on mobile quite a headache.
I'm super sorry that we missed these. I take full responsibility for the problem, because we didn't subscribe to this thread. That is not an acceptable excuse by any means, but we will correct it for the future.
We're on top of it, and hope to have it sorted by tomorrow. Please keep the reports coming if you see anything, and if ever in the future we aren't answering here you can either email me personally at email@example.com or call my office line - 514.448.2760.
We will get this cleaned up.

Did that happen right when you posted this?
Personally I'm a Premium User but from my understanding, it is a constant battle between the ad serving platform, malicious ad developers, and phone OS/browser developers. The phone OS/browser developers are trying to close down any exploits being used to get these malicious ads and ad serving platforms trying to find them before they get served up.
So yes, some phone OS and browser versions are more susceptible.
