The video game website is the one that most frequently redirects me. Another overtakes my entire screen unless I locate the tiny X at in the top right.

I had a new page get loaded and I think it had something to do with video games or game rentals or something. Not today cuz I wasn't on till now, but I had that happen several times already.

But since we're talking about site performance, I'd like to ask Admin to change something. Whenever I middle-mouse click a thread, it takes me to that page just as I would left-click. The middle-click should load a new tab, as it does on any other website. It's pretty annoying if I want to open 5 threads at once and I have to right-click and select 'open in new tab' for each. I'm on Chrome now, but I think it happens in every browser.

I have the same issue, but only on my work PC. At home it's fine.

Weird.

Could it be browser specific? I was redirected several times from home using chrome recently, but I don't remember any in the last couple days - since I started using Firefox to come here. And I've never had it happen at work using IE.

It's fixed on IE and Opera, thanks. :thumb:

It still needs a fix on Chrome. Now a new tab opens and that's good, but it also takes the original tab to the link as well. So I end up with 2 pages on the new link. :thumbdown:

So much for the browser specific theory, I just got it on Firefox right after I posted that. Same link.

This page gives one of those "Are you sure you want to leave this page" boxes where you have to click leave or stay.

I've had one of the are-you-sure-you-want-to-leave ads before. Those stink.

I just got redirected to this screen:

I like and use the site a lot. I don't block ads because it hurts Admin's revenue. It's not free to run the site. Do what you please.

I find myself not minding most ads. I could get a thing to completely wipe them out, but then webpages look so colorless and lifeless that I actually prefer some junk. Popups can get annoying and some of the java stuff I hate with a passion because it can significantly slow down page load time, but 'oh well'.

I got the gamefly redirect today.
