I saw adverts after I upgraded to premium but not all the time.

Ad member from the Ad Traffic team is wondering if any of you are still seeing the misplaced ads breaking the screen?

Twice today. From George Brown College. it was horizontal alongside the box for posting comments and squished the whole screen.

clicking the link showed some "ad.doubleclick" rerouting URL and then went to http://www.georgebrown.ca/hire/

by the way I'm at work using a different browser and computer than when I got these at home.

That George Brown College ad keeps following me around.

I actually went to that college for 2 years for an Editing Certificate course.

A member from the ad team is puzzled as to why this is happening because she said the coding and Hor./Ver. slots are correct. we're still trying to get to the bottom of this. Sorry for all the questions, but are all ads in that area of the page breaking it up? Or the just the companies you mentioned (Heineken, BB, Clearly, George Brown).

Thanks Kat.

A few times I've had a new tab open with this site or been rerouted there altogether, just while going from one page to another on MTF:

Screen-breaking ads (horizontal ads where vertical ads should be) today on home page and every subforum except General Messages.

Hello!!! it's still doing it and now it's attacking me with redirects to sites that are telling me I need Java and Flash.

An ad saying "Windows Media Player Download" (that doesn't really look like it's from Windows) caused a second window to open with this address in the URL

http://www.winupdatevideos.com/cf/9/...TYyKAEw05DDmAU.

Bogus-looking Windows ad (also there's a video ad below it playing a video of Rio de Janeiro and if you put your mouse over it, there is sound on the video):

Screenshot of redirect for Flash to install "Lightspark" player. Note the dialog box when I try to close the window. Note I'm not even using Windows I'm on a Mac using Safari browser:

I have adblock at home so I don't see any of this stuff, though now I wonder if it's what caused my computer to completely freeze up yesterday at home.

Same ad but one is vertical while the other horizontal

edit: I noticed it's always the third ad that mess up. Being horizontal instead of vertical.

Also, when I try to use the app to upload my screen print of the problem from my ipad, I get this error message which I had no problem before.

Still happening although it's not as frequent. Any update?
