So after someone generously gifted me 3 months of premium, it finally ran out, and now on my phone i have ads again and umm..wtf?

I dont mind ads but is this a joke? Ive 6 ads on the main screen. Everytime i leave the main page i get a pop up i have to close. Every subforum is littered with 3-4 huge ads. Just by scrolling ive ended up clicking multiple ads. By trying to close pop ups ive clicked several ads.

Why the hell is there more ads on my phone than actual forum?

Edit: oh and the context of the ads.
Need new tyres?
101 ways to enter the stock market.
Some gps crap
Australian market group
Need a job?

What do any if these ads have to do with the forum in the slightest

The ads are ridiculous. It should be for the guests not for the members.

The best tactic to stop them is to use adblock. However I have heard rumours that Google will eventually ban the use of adblock.

In this case the best thing to do is to use Mozilla Firefox web browser and use an adblock addons. I use this method on my Note 8 and it works very well.

There's a hint of data mining in some of these ads. How else do they know about my recent purchases @ Amazon.com 😂

Yeah, i noticed, when i googled something, came back to the site and within a minute i had a ad for that site. Its overly invasive, theres a metric sh*t ton of them(more than kissanime, which is ridiculous) and, there are so many that are moving, it physically slows my phone down to even scroll.

The site is practically unusable on my mobile, because of the absolute cluster f*ck amount of ads going on all at the same time, its a joke

You can take screenshots of how it looks if it ruins your visit so that we can improve it. Currently google automatically chooses the ad placements and of course that can be improved. Google does indeed take in account what you browse to give targeted ads you can turn this off in your google account or browser settings if you prefer random ads. That said, we do thank everyone that purchases premium and those that doesn't use adblocker as it does help to pay for the servers the site run on.

Apologies if they are huge

@Zise this is the amount of ads i have on the main page and then entering a sub forum. Its even worse when i enter and actual thread, theres an ad every 3-4 posts. Its physically slowing my phone down, and i have a samgsung s8, which isnt an old phone, but this took me about 5 minutes to upload all of these to the site due to the site lagg from the ads
