Advertisements suddenly appeared

Post by Einsteinean on November 10th 2010, 5:24 pm

A little background info on our forum first. I am an administrator on fujiplanet.net. Our forum has been around for over a year (start date was May 8th, 2009 and I joined on July 20th, 2009. For the time that I have been on the forum, we have never had ads like this appear. I see some topics in here already discussing these, and I would like to know how to get rid of the ads. There are spam ads (This is no joke, you are the 10,000th visitor, etc) and real ads for Dodge, Jeep, etc. I checked the admin panel and our announcements our deactivated b/c it lags it for our users.

However, when I got on this morning, there was a large ad on top of our important links section under our nav bar and banner.

I want to know how I can get rid of them. I am willing to donate money (credits) if it means getting rid of them.

Also, our founder, Faz, is rarely on, so if someone who has access to all the forums' founder rights could do it, I'd be greatly appreciative. These ads are extremely annoying to me and to our members. Thanks.

The same thing happened to my forums. I founded my forums in August 2008 and have never had this problem until today.

Some of my members have even claimed to see pornographic ads as guests (before they logged in).

Luckily it's the school day and not a lot fo our members have logged in. I'm not looking forward to tonight when they do log in. However, I have put up a scrolling announcement to alert them of the issue. I suggest everyone else do the same.

I sent a PM to all of our members asking them to make some respectful noise on here, so prepare for the flood.
