No, your not the only one. Kinda drives me nuts. I'm sure it's cause they're not selling enough member stars

Use Tapatalk if you're not on a actual computer and you won't see any ads at all. Tapatalk for a smartphone or tablet. I use Tapatalk on both. A bonus to using Tapatalk is you can upload pictures directly from your phone or tablet and not have to use a third-party provider.

Hmm how is that? I see adds on Tapatalk too.

I'll just add I'm completely okay with seeing adds if it helps keep the lights on here!

I get the pop up ads. I close the ad and then have to wait 15 seconds before I can load the new posts

They stick ads between posts.


Maybe its different for various phones and OS's, or you might have ad block on?


Though what Smog said makes me think its different on different phones. I see ads but not pop ups and there's no waiting after an ad for me.

I don't know. I'm on Android. Whether or not I have Ad block, I have no idea. I have an old Apple iPad that I use at home. I don't get ads on that either. I do pay 5 or $10 a year towards the wedsite. Don't know if that has anything to do with it.

I am on android. Don't recall whether it happens when on my pc. It happens every time I open rcc on my phone. The ad is bad enough considering I am a paying member. Having it followed by a page telling me i need to wait 15 seconds before I try reloading looks pretty lame on RCC.

I'll see if I can figure it out on my phone and let you know so you don't get the ads

Personally i don't see that much ads.
I understand they're necessary to maintain the site, but it's not helping when they annoy the user.

That said:
Nowadays it is almost reckless to surf around without a script blocker. Noscript is the least you could do. µBlock is far better, but harder to configure and makes some pages appear weird, whereas Noscript is simpler and does the job mostly. That'll get rid of most trackers and ads.
Generally, it is a good idea to set the DNS entry of either your network card or router to an adfree version, AdGuard (search AdGuard DNS) has some that help keep your network free from Ads, Trackers and even Malware.
The other way to do this is a PiHole.
AdGuard is available for mobiles of either family afaik, and it does even more to protect you from Ads. It acts as a VPN, so it works on unmodified (Root/Jailbreak) phones, but it needs the VPN function, so using another is not possible.
That'll even boost battery (less processor usage, less RAM, less data transfer) and makes most sites usable again, like in the 90's, where surfing the net was fast and simple. And it works on Apps, too. Everything Freemium is adfree, too! ;)
The few pages detecting the adblock and blocking the user completely need to learn that this is unacceptable either way, so please use another site. None are so unique you absolutely need them.

No, i don't get something from either, i just have the AdGuard DNS active on all my routers, and NoScript on my PCs Firefox and that's it.
There are almost no ads at all, and that works for me.

Did you disable "Native Advertisements" in your settings? You can find this in your dashboard, click on your forum and then select the "Monetization" tab.

Thanks for looking into it. The ads only appear on my Android. There aren’t any appearing on either the iPad or the pc. I just looked for ‘Native Advertising’ and ‘Monetization’ in settings, but don’t appear to have either. Is native advertising the same as ‘personalized ads’?

Yes, it is the same as personalized ads

I get banner ads but nothing like the old pop ups. My computer is less than 6 months old and has windows ten. IDK if that help filter out the type of things you are seeing or not.
