Iíve not heard an update from @Chapo in awhile. Seem the wheel ads are not appearing as of this post, but I could be wrong. I would move sooner if I had time to research new host candidates but my schedule is a little bit too busy to do so. Thatís the only reason you have to June to July to prove you arenít supporting scams by allowing scam banners ads to be around the forum sites.
Plus you will also need to:
1. Step up the pace other sites Iím on are way faster in getting rid of these bad banner ads then you are. Seems other only take about a week you are about to go past a half a year soon and not all the old ones are gone. Plus Iím seeing new ones scammers seem to be after Walmart again.
2. If you must have the annoying pop-ups, make sure they are not going to bad sites.
I was just testing it on my phone and I got a fake virus warning from Google and thatís one example of something that I canít allow. Also, make sure it easy to navigate back to the original page. Most people get annoyed if the redirected to a page they did not want to be sent to and can't get back to the intended location, have the opening in a new tab/window could solve that.


As of this time, Iím still thinking I mad a big mistake in trusting you folks, during the move to here I was in a bit of a rush. If you can't complete the above three task by June-July I will most likely be moving again. As for, the ad credits I bought I will just have to put down a loss. At this time you will also be labeled as a bad host that lies and supports scam banner ads and pop-ups. In order to prove you are not scam banner ad supporters, you will need to fix all the above issues before June. Since in June I will have time to check out new host if
you have not proven yourself and move to a new host.

Glad to see the nasty banner ad scams are gone for now.


It randomly happens sometimes and the iPhone not always hooked into the laptop when the incidents happen. The scams have gotten me so bad I try to avoid going onto the site in public places but that what the mobile version should be for. However it is harder if all pop up are scam and the page is not loading the intended page at all.


I still consider the pop-up scams, redirects since it is loading a page the user did not request instead of the request page, Worst of all they are scams.

Something, like a pop up to the legit Amazon site in the background with the page loading the proper page as well in the main tab/window. Would be at least tolerable.


Site: http://test-site2.forumotion.com
-Country: USA
-Device: iPhone
Type: Pop-up scam
Action: Trying to log in. Instead, I get a scam pop-up on the iPhone and the page does not load at all.
Browser: iPhone Safari

Details:
Scam pop up page url:

From one of our posters:

"I don't have any problem logging on with my desk top computer but for some reason I'm not being able to log on with my iPad. I have been using my android to post replies but as of last night I can't seem to log onto Bach chat forumotion with my android without getting a reply that now I have Four virus due to going on adult sites....but problem is I have never been on adult sites! And it only does it when I try to log onto Bach chat forumotion. Is this site somehow now linked with adult sites? I just want to use my iPad and be done with it. Problem is not being able to log in with the username and password I have had on that site for years."

Not looking good here I just got that same scam pop up I last reported to you. Seem to be an indication that you are spam supporters and that I mad a big mistake. You need to get rid of that and fast as you are running out of time to prove yourself as none spam supporters.

Site info is the same as my previous post as is the action.

The only reason the reports have slowed down from me is Iím getting a bit tired of repeating myself beside looking back at this topic ( http://help.forumotion.com/t145609p240-only-redirect-topic-ads-redirection-mobile-pc ) Iíve been doing the pop-up/redirect reports from December 18th, 2016 (or earlier if you count the unrelated popup/redirect scams) most are in the other topic since, like I said before even if you folks donít count the pop-ups as redirects, I do. As itís opening a page the user did not request and not going to the requested page. Beside lately itís the same scam just a variation of it depending on the personís/my location.

June is less than a month away and at that time a lot of factors will be taken into consideration.
1. Scams on here mostly gone?
2. Do, other forums do the Https free? (most game sites seem to be converting without problems or needing members to pay a fee).
3. Has the pace of reports and dealt time been speeding up on here?
4. Can members log-on/browse with mobile devices without getting annoyed by pop-ups/redirects.
5. Can other hosts handle image heavy post?
6. Do copy/pasted links come out clean and not spam looking?

Was able to force it to reproduce the scam pop-up again well the iPhone was linked up with the computer, and itís still hijacking the mobileís login on my iPhone. I canít log in unless I bookmark the login page or switch to classic mode. Neither of those actions should be needed though.

Site: http://test-site2.forumotion.com
-Country: USA
-Device: iPhone 6s
-Browser: Safari mobile
-Wi-Fi or cellar data: Wi-Fi
-type: pop-up and hijacked login link

spoofing: Facebook (I doubt they would be happy about that.)
Screenshots:
Same as the post from
(April 21st, 2017, 8:01 pm)
Codes:
Still working on that type of stuff Safari web data is not as easy to capture, for debugging but if there is any hope of stopping this scam fast I think itís in the code.




Edit (May 7th 2017, 1:53 am fourm time): Itís get harder to replicate as it seems to mostly happen once per day now. Iím still trying to see if I can force it to do it again a couple times per day. The sooner the scams are gone the better and if I can get some data over the weekend hopefully it will help.

In my hunt to get it to do that pop up again as I logged in I got the orange wheel one (if you need the screenshot, itís the same orange one from here: http://help.forumotion.com/t145609p240-only-topic-ads-redirection-mobile-pc#1037158 )

-Website Mode: Desktop
Notes/reason: I was not Logged in (besides if I was logged in there is ad protection. Starting to wish I had done it for all instead of logged in members only)
Activity before running into the ad: I had been browsing some other sites when I managed to load my main forum site unintentionally but maybe it was a good thing it happened.


Ran across this ad which I say is a sketchy ad (MacKeeper). A lot of people say their practices of getting installed are questionable (hiding in other software) and it is like nearly impossible to remove (uninstall) all trace of it once it gets installed.


Sketchy adís URL
Code:

Screen shot of Sketchy ad


Secoundly:
Eek! Saw a fake flash pop-up not sure if that one was from forumotion though had other sites open too, so going to ingnore it for now but will be watching closer now, as you are still the top suspect with pop-ups scam issues. (Will be scannin compture shortly too maybe something bad got on to it.)

Third of all,
On a side note:
If Iím up to it Iíll edit in another report for the mobile log in problems from the test site.


Note:
The hunt to see if there is a better more relible and tustworthy host for the main fourm site will begin again soon. Yes I won't move that fourm till June/July. However, I will consider keeping the test site up and assiting with the logg in scam issues. Friendly Forest is in too much dangner if it stayas on here much longer with all the scams. Maybe in a few years you folks will have impoved a lot and perhaps depending on what happens in the future maybe I'll create some other site.
Edited ~May 11th 2017, 3:15 am
Note:
Found something a little more of what's really going on. You know the 3 menu
lines that pull down the menu on mobile the scam the pop ups are not letting the forum site(s)'s pull the menu down and that's what really being hijacked.
Well here today stuff

Site: http://test-site2.forumotion.com
-Country: USA
-Device: iPhone
Connection type: wifi
Type: Pop-up scam
Action: Trying to get the pull down to log in. Instead, I get a scam pop-up on the iPhone and the forum page does not give me the menu
Browser: iPhone Safari


The pop up scam came out as a different one this time. Though the scammer are trying to tarnish Walmart name by using it for their scams again. Walmart seems to be targeted a lot for scams.

URL of pop up:
Code:

For myself, if I donít want to see the sketchy mac keeper ads (got another one but forgot to copy paste details) I can turn my Ad Block on and I found one for my cell too. However not ALL are able to do these things and Iím not sure all cell phone have stronger ad blocking aps yet.

I really don't want to have to explain why you folks are so slow to deal with scam ads/rederict, as even I don't know that answer myself. If the URL where to be blocked for malware due to all the scams, I would most likely need to explain how it's been fix and why it was so slow to be fixed if I wanted it remove and there is a chance it won't be removed hence a permeant URL block. That would not be good would it?

@SLGray
With some video sites, I can understand some sketchy ads like Mac Keep, but not on a forum. Don't know how they get on forums and not happy about it.
I'm just extremely concerned. Say someone less knowledgeable where to download it thinking it's a safe scanner and then wants to uninstall and has a hard time. I could get blamed for their computer having to be taken to a repair shop due to that misleading ad. That's a headache I don't need or want.

It might work but still, it could still happen despite the announcement. At this rate, it might not matter as it looks like my main forum site for it own safety will be forced to move again once I find a more suitable host for it.

-Browser: Mac Google Chrome Version 58.0.3029.110 (64-bit)
-Website Mode: Desktop
-type: Pop-up
Notes/reason: I was not Logged in and the main issue seem to be with the Login Link being Hijacked by these scams.
spoof: Pretending to be Media Player needing an update

Also did the test with the main site and like I said earlier in the redirect post the pull down is still hijacked by a pop-up and this one was a scam. How can I safely invite others over to the main site if I keep getting these scams pop up? If I'm getting it these scams. It means my members would be getting it too. I can't allow this as it would hurt my reputation and make it look like I support scams.
Not everyone has admin control over their cell and the same fact is true with computers too. If everyone did have admin control over all the devices they used. I would tell them to just install ad-block on them. Though not sure all cells have ad block apps. I only stumbled upon one for iPhone a few months back trying to deal with giant sized ads on another site. I just happend to noticed it help with the scam on her too. I disable it temporarily to do these reports. Well I search for a more trusworthy host.
Though you might still be able to get into the the running but you will need to get the scam pop up/redericts scam to stop and keep them from hijacking the mobiles pull down menu. The seach for a new host has been mad harder due to Viglink which is also a no as it makes a gaint copy paste mess that apears spamy. Your's site doesen't have the gaint copy paste mess but it is still having massive spam problemes.




Site:http://friendlyforest.forumotion.com/
-Country: USA
-Device: iPhone 6s
-Browser: Mobile Safari
-type: Pop-up
Notes/Reason: Not logged in the pull down is still being hijacked by spam pop ups.

I think it would be very hard for someone to sue over that. They would first have to definitively prove, without a doubt that what caused their pc to crash came from your site, which is incredibly difficult to do as there are many of places where can get viruses on ones pc these days.

Also, there havent been a single report of any of our ads causing pcs to crash or catch viruses at all. I have run scans on my site with my anti virus software after the ads come up and it always comes up clear, it hasnt come up with a danger warning at all yet.

None the less we do our best to fix the ads and get re directing/scammy ones off as fast as possible.

Just bare in my mind that our team does have alot of stuff they have to do, like maintence work, setting up new features, fixing bugs and the like and this is just one of many things our team has to do. Please just keep being patient and they will be removed, I think our team has done their best so far to show they are trying to remove them all.

Just please keep being patient and keep reporting them. Wink

i will just add one more thing to what brandon has said.

We do not host the ad's our self they are a third party and we are working hard with them to keep them sort of popup's and ad's down and yes some get past the net but we only know of them if you the member report them to us. then with the right info we can pin point them and get them removed in a matter of days or even hours or minuets,

so if the data we ask for is right we have the power to block it and then your site will not have the problem's.

I will tell you this thou it's not just our site's it's even the bigger world wide sites get them even google and facebook it's self have them.

Hello , thanks everybody for your reports !

@Dragongirl02 , after we checked your case, we understood where the problem comes from : when a forum doesn't have activity at all, they might sometimes show pop-up advertisings on mobile. This is a nomal situation, if you post 4 or 5 posts on your forum you won't have this ad anymore Smile

@Nape4 , could you please tell me when and around which time you got that ad please ? Also, if in your browser history you can find all the links that you got between your Servimg and this ad that would be amazing (usually there's a URL no one see and that you can only find in your historic, between the URL you were on and the ad URL Wink ) Thank you !

@Luffy If you could find the same thing as Nape4 that would be amazing, thank you Very Happy

@Shadow
Mind you I work with Wii U console not laptop or mobile.
Console has no history time or saves links.

Wii U consoles allow cookies which what makes forumotion work on console devices.

I get the ad at random times when I login my forumotion or servimg the advertisement url I posted is viewable by console devices if laptop or high grade mobiles can't view it.

Still advertisement links are viewable by any device you work with an the bladeofqueens had a 17+ Inappropriate to advertisement there game its extremely annoying an very adult inappropriate an its not age appropriate.

Mind you laptop an mobile can ad block. Consoles don't have that pleasure.
shore advertisements is what makes forumotion going but inappropriate seeing it on a console were you have no control over when if it appears on you is annoying. there must be a better way to still follow advertisement rules while keeping a 100% free site you don't want pay money to remove ads. I can see most users put a ad remove but for peet sake inappropriate is not fun.

Itís looking more and more like you folks are trying to push my main forum site off yours by not doing anything with the pull down on mobile being hijacked by scam pop-ups ads. So my only other option is to find a new host which is a bit harder than I thought with a lot of other sites partnering with Viglink but I am starting to think the lesser of the two ďevilsĒ (Scams ads vs. glitchy Viglink links) would be Viglinks (I know how to control the copy/paste URLs now with Viglink around so pasting appears as a clean link).

@SLGray and @Shadow
I see the note.
Sadly I can't open the site up fully to my friends or go fully public unless some things are done with the scam ads and pop up hijacking the pull down first. If I tried to do a stronger advertisement right now with said issues, my forum site would be at high risk of getting URL blocked permently, due to supposed malware (due to the scam pop ups) and I can't think of five thing to post on my own.
Though, one could be about this pop scam ad mess and my issues finding a new host due to Viglink and Viglink being the lesser of the two evils. (which I am about to do.)
There is a possible way of doing the four other posts but it would have to be an extremely desperate situation for me to do so and how can I guarantee the scam won't affect my users in the future. I think I'm going to first look at an alternative hosting, however, if no luck/other resolutions by September I will consider things desperate and may do said posts.

Well, you could just give out the link to a couple friends, so they can help with the posts.

Hello @Dragongirl02 you can always make 3 or 4 fake accounts on your forum and use them to post in a forum of your pick then this will get your post count up a little then the popup ad's will stop for you as for the other ad's well you need to give us as much data about them ad;s as you can then we will get on with removing them.
With out that data we have asked for we can not find the rogue ad's and report them to our ad's hosts.

king regards

APE and the team.

APE, thanks, but I'm wondering if you could be a little more cryptic. I can almost understand what you've said here, but I would prefer being even more confused!

So I will try inserting the image here:


Hey, it worked! This screen shot is of a pop-up browser window and was accompanied by a voice saying my computer had been hacked, blah, blah, blah. I have no clue if this will help you identify the original ad on the Login page which had the hack code in it and that caused this pop-up window to appear. There is no real way for me to catch the original ad. Please let me know if this image is helpful or not, and perhaps you can give me some guidance on the specific information you would have preferred to get with this image. That will help me know what to grab if it happens again.

Thanks!
