Ad Pop Ups worse than ever

Unread post by Pixl »

This morning I an getting bombed with a lower left screen ad that pops up at every page change. Clicking the little X takes me to the ad page full screen rather than closing the ad window. Ironically this started just after I had made a voluntary donation to the board over the weekend on the anniversary of my 1st year of membership.

Best Ad blocker hands down: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/deta ... idom?hl=en
AdBlock is an add on for the Google Chrome web browser only but it blocks everything including ads in YouTube videos!

Ad Block Plus is made as a Chrome and Firefox extension; works wonderfully.
FYI, the issue Pixl had was a issue with Google Ads that they serve and most websites running Google Ads were affected (millions)...issue persisted over a couple of weeks, but they resolved it.

Also, if you do run Adblock, I do ask that while you are on this site, you can click on it's icon in the menu bar to disable Adblock for Railroadfan.com
This site depends on ad revenue and donations to stay afloat, with ads making up the majority of the revenue to pay for the hosting fees. Please keep that in mind.
