    At least CBR doesn't have ads that auto open the App Store on my phone.

    But yes, the ads are out of control, and I've seen it mentioned around the Internet, from comics professionals on Twitter, even. I hope CBR are either looking into it, or are making enough from them that it compensates for the lost traffic, because a lot of people seem fed up with the ads.

I'd just like to be informed so I can make a decision.
    Reviresco, just for clarity's sake, moderators like myself don't dictate how CBR handles ads. The site owners do, and complaints should be directed to them. Ads are above our level of authority.

    So who are the site owners and how do we contact them? Because, seriously, the way CBR is doing ads is really, really poorly thought out. I'm reading an article and suddenly a video ad opens up and starts playing, scrolling my screen and annoying people around me if I happen to be in public with speakers activated. Or the entire page will be overlayed with a video ad with a delayed close button. So who and how do we contact??

    At the bottom of the page there's a "Contact" link, and that'll show you your options.

    10 seconds of a big BK3 ad that I don't care about before I saw the home page.

    Has anyone else been getting ad pop ups even when posting??? Isn't that getting a bit too obtrusive?

    I don't think that's supposed to happen. Which ad was it, if you remember?

    I wish I could remember. It happened just before Christmas but I've not noticed it today or yesterday. I you want I will PM you if one pops up again and I can screen cap it.

    I got an ad for Tropicana when I tried to post earlier. Not sure if it was the same ad Iron Maiden was talking about and I haven't seen it since either but I thought I'd mention it in case it helps you guys.

    I just got an ad popping up when my post loaded to the Marvel Comics forum during this post...

    I made a screen cap of it before I got rid of it.

    Another thing I feel should not be happening is ads that pop up when you are going through the previews for next week's comics. Those are essentially an ad for Marvel or DC to buy their product yet you get some other ad blocking them between pages.

    I got the same thing twice on the Marvel page too and the second one was after I left the forum completely and then came back to the Marvel forum a second time. Also, I'm primarily a tablet user and these pop up ads really cause havoc with my table oftentimes freezing it up or in some cases, if its a full page ad, I can't get out of it at all and have to wait for it to run it's course because the "x" never makes an appearance. I have an ad blocker installed and everything so why this is happening I've no idea.

    I have the same problem too when I want to look at the previews of a comic on the front page. Ads come in and block everything and sometimes I can't get rid of them easily. So I will head to another site instead that displays them in a more friendly way. I will try and do more screen caps if anyone wants to see.
