WHOA.. What's This?

so I am looking through someone's album.. I go through maybe 10 or so pictures... and all the the sudden this white page pops up saying advertisement.. and it will redirect me back to the site in 30 seconds?

I don't mind the ads on the page... but I don't like redirects.. no sir.. not at all.. this can lead to problems. Is there a way around this? Has anyone else had this happen? This is the first time in a LOT of browsing on this site it has happened to me.

Thanks

No this is not done by the foruml. I'll investigate it and see what I can find out. Thanks for mentioning it. I'll let you know what I find out.

Well I was thinking that maybe one of Schooljerk's pictures has some hidden link that would redirect but I checked all his pictures and there is none.

I will send a note to the admin about this and see what they say. As I said in an earlier thread...our support from the admins leave a lot to be desired.

Do you recall what the advertisement you were redirected to was? Also was it a pop-up or was your page actually changed to be on the advertises site?

Please if this happens to anyone else, let me know so I can document it for the admins.

How strange! I have never seen that happen before. I went to schooljerk's profile and cruised through his pictures and it didn't happen to me. I wonder what's up with that? Hopefully an answer can be found.

Hello everyone,

Which browsers are you using when the redirect occurs and would it be possible for you to take a screenshot of the page when it appears again? I looked around Schooljerk's album on Chrome and the redirect did not occur.

Thanks for the help!

WOW- I'm impressed Kay. I take back what I said about requests taking a long time from the Admin you got right on it.
