    I've gotten the creepy dating ads too. Apologies that I don't have pictures, but one of them depicted a cartoon of a woman preparing to strip while saying "I've got a birthday surprise for you."

    Yeah, the one of the person stripping was for free cards and it would install MyWay Speedbar, a form of spyware:

    You got that ad while you were logged in on the forums? Given that our system is set up to not display any ads when you're logged in, if you get an ad like that while browsing, you should immediately check your system for spyware, since it's likely something's trying a form of man-in-the-middle attack on you.

    I got that too. (sorry, no pic) I just got onto bulbapedia and on the left-hand ad, it showed the exact ad you showed us.

    I've also got a zwinky ad. it conatins spyware "MyWeb Searchbar" (according to Wikipedia) and might lure some children to play it.

    sorry to doublepost, but I found a very inappropriate ad in bulbapedia that shows a few women in underwear and looks like striping to me. I don't have a pic, sorry. what software is required?

    At minimum, we need the link. We can't block ads based on the information you've given me.

    sorry, i'm not sure if this ad will stay if I link it though: http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/DP044
    the ad is an unnamed ad that contains a few pics of woman in lingerie, some striping. there is a play button on each picture.

    I found out more than one of those types of ads are there. there is only two known named ad, but the only words are: "so hot" and the others are "Dream Girls" and the word on the top of this certain ad said "naughty" and the bottom said "girls". The copyright is by LM Networks 20008

    That still doesn't help me. You can click on the image and pull up "copy link location," or something similar, then paste it into a post.

    I try to right click, but it's no "copy link location", it's a video ad that you can play by pressing the play button. all the right click window says is: play, loop, rewind, fast forward, back, and a few more. I managed to get a few links. the link is: http://optimizedby.rmxads.com/click,uThYAEGgBQBi9QcAciIEAAIAzAAAAP8AAAADEQIACgM-oAcABjMDAOYwBgAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAONzhkgAAAAA,,http%3A%2F%2Fwww.bulbagarden.net%2Fads%2Fbc_sk y.html

    Is there any reason why I'm logged in and I'm still seeing ads? I got like one popup and for every page I'm seeing ads.









    For these four(especially the last one), I'll just say that they are quite explicit.

    And I got this WHILE I was loggged in.

    Boss Fantasy or Boss Porn, that is the question.

    Not quite as bad as the above post, but I got this at the bottom of the first page of this thread. And this was while I was logged in.

    Yes, this is apparently on every page now and now that more people are noticing, becoming quite a nuisance, especially with the login popups.

    Isn't there someway to just remove the script in question? If the new server is well paid for and we don't need ads for a while, couldn't the strip of code generating the ads at the bottom be removed? Of course, I may be overlooking something serious and being a bit naive at something that's beyond what I can see.

    And this is what I see:


    Also, why is html back on? It wasn't before the switch. Is it really necessary? Maybe that might be contributing to this loophole (or not, but it's annoying to figure out an easy way to display the code in a way so it is just code. And no, the code tags didn't work.)
