    Hey Archaic, I've been getting quite a few of these expanding Video Clips. They go way by themselves once they finish (making it difficult to get both a screen shot and a link). You guys want these ads or not? If not, then I may end up flooding this thread while breaking some rules in the process. Anyway here's the link for the latest one I've found. I did get a screenshot on my clipboard, but I accidently over wrote it with the url before I could save it.

    Make sure to tag @Archaic; or myself so we know to see it. I'll look into it.

    Like so: @InsertUserNameHere; make sure to put a ; at the end as well or it won't work.

    Expanders are not generally objectionable (unless they're really covering far too much of the screen). They shouldn't appear for mobile browsers, but if that happens let us know. We're going to introduce a mobile skin later this year without that particular ad code, but the ads are supposed to be smart enough to not show up then.

    This expanding ad features expletive, though censored language, which nonetheless I feel is inappropriate, especially given that the intention of the word is obvious. I did not manage to get a link, but here is a screen shot.

    Just FYI guys, it's practically impossible for us to track these down without a link. =/

    I was unable to get a screen capture but I got the link to another disruptive ad. It was one of those ads that talk to you and pop up out of nowhere
    This is the link: Colgate Total

    I keep getting nested text ads from "value click media" that overlay the normal words on the bulbapedia website. They are for InfoSearch and Dictionary, Encyclopedia and Thesaurus - The Free Dictionary.

    Exclamation Re: Bad Ad Reporting Thread

    I'll report here what I already reported on Bulbapedia's talk page (click here if the talk page gets archived in the meantime you come across this).

    • I was on my iPhone 3G with iOS 4.2.1;
    • I opened Mobile Safari and directed it to Bulbapedia's main page;
    • Also, before I fired up Mobile Safari, I had wiped out all of the local history, list of cookies and cache, if it matters;
    • I don't remember seeing anything odd or tapping anything on the screen by accident (but it could've happened);
    • I suddenly get redirected multiple times through the ad network until I reach this pornographic site;
    • I'm 19 so I don't have anything against adult-themed content; however, I demand an explanation for this suspicious behavior that led me there to begin with.


    What gives, /bmgf/?

    You're the first person who's ever reported anything like this. We'll do what we can to investigate it. The ads displayed to mobile phones and tablets differ to the regular ad networks shown to regular browsers, so with any luck that may make it a little easier to track down. If you have the URL's it redirected you through (which should hopefully be in your iPhone's browser history), then that will assist greatly.

    Sorry Archaic but I no longer have them. I used the iPhone during the time it happened and, as per previous multiple occasions, Mobile Safari crashed when I was in a relatively heavy non-mobile-suited site, which also made me lose my text form for something I was about to post. When it crashes like this, all history, etc. from the current session is lost. :/
