    We'll be running test ads for the next 2 weeks. Things might get weird while we lock in which sizes work best for RCF. Please be patient. Once this is done we'll be be working with tapatalk to give you guys a better mobile experience.

    Just started the new ad testing. If you see something amiss, other than the ads, please let me know.

    Getting a ton of spam/malware pop ups on my phone today from RCF. Site is borderline unusable.

    The scrolling ads are really annoying. They blocked the drop down menus.

    Can you guys please screenshot those ads so I can discuss them with the ad network? This is the problem I have going outside google for ads. NOBODY works on the weekend.

    This is what keeps popping up for me. Both on mobile and desktop.

    I can't make it to the end of a thread without being navigated off of the site and to this page. It's only with this forum and not when I'm using other sites.

    Yeah, crazy amounts of predatory ads for me. Had to force quit my browser several times. :(

    I'll have all this cleared up around 6am tomorrow. Sorry but I knew it was likely. All ad networks just inherently suck.

    On a side note... are you guys on mobile? How long were on you RCF before you got the bad ads? All info will be helpful.

    I'm on my PC now and have had zero problems. Still can't really use it on my phone.

    I typically got a pop-up when clicking on a thread or when I was leaving a thread and coming back to the main forum.

    I use on my desktop often but when mobile I use the pc version on cell and iPad. Hate the taptalk version.

    I think most of the issues are with mobile. I'll see if I can't separate mobile traffic into a different ad network.
