    Can I just say- awesome job @Brian G.

    We're a decent sized site here, and yet Brian is still this personalized.
    Truly appreciate it.

    After deleting my browsing history on my phone, I’m still getting the Amazon gift card pop ups. They’ve been super aggressive lately.

    All, we've noticed more of these ads on mobile across IU and other sites. Ad sense has changed some things so we're adjusting. Brian is working on it.

    Ironic how as soon as I click to read this post, I get hit with a pop-up.

    But thanks for addressing it! :)

    Me too! I clicked through just now via New Posts and immediately popped up. The irony!

    14:36 UK / Edit I mean 9:36 Orlando

    Oh, you won a prize too! When I filled it out, they asked for my credit card information and my social security number, and now I’m $16,000 in debt, but I think they’ll give it back once they have my prize ready. :grin:

    Yes. Me too. The site is almost unusable. Took me perhaps eight attempts to reply. Screenshots below 8.22ish Orlando time / 23.22 UK. Had been fine for weeks :-(

    It’s an incredibly high rate for me as well.

    I just got all of these below at 23:46/18:46 just trying to reply to you. Not such an issue if I can’t use the site, but you are an important contributor / moderator... Good luck

    Yup, almost impossible to use the site on mobile right now.

    I have one that isn’t just popping up now. It’s redirecting the IU page to their own website without me even clicking the screen. I spam the back button, and it still keeps redirecting.

    FWIW it’s also hitting other sites too.
