Video pop ups?

Is anyone else experiencing problems accessing the vintage forum discussion threads with an iPad?

I couldn't read any thread without a video ad coming up.

Not sure if this is a problem with the site or my iPad.

Used to have the same problem with a redirect to a site that says I was a luck winner. Now its a video pop up.

Very annoying.

I was experiencing all kinds of stuff last year.
Ads with videos loading, tons of ads, re directs to another page saying that I had won something, and one time an alert that I had a virus on my iPhone.
I've had 3 new iPhones in the past year.
I keep breaking them, I guess they are not made for const.
The new iphone I got this year seems to be working fine on the VMF site, no anomalies.

I have been seeing this intermittently the last couple weeks. Usually I get redirected to a video and then have to back up and click again to get the right link.

Today, all I get is a video that doesn't even fully load And re-clicking isn't working. This and one other thread are all that I've been able to get into. I also noticed the address is correct for the link, so I'm not getting redirected to another site. Using an iPad Air.

When you get these again please can you grab a screen grab of what you are seeing as well as the URL it redirects you to or tries to. I need this to report it to our ad traffic team.

It's the same as this...Pop Up Videos

They won't be able to grab anything on the iPad or iPhone. I have tried multiple ways and times, but then again I may just be iXXX illiterate

Just to make sure, you tried going through your browser history after you get one of these redirects as well? Should be able to grab the url from it there.

We can try a different tack though. It's happening on ipad, but what browser are you using and can you tell me your rough geographic location? Maybe I can recreate this.

Today's video was for Mr. Peanut. No redirect. Just a vid that played in place of going to a forum. This was while using my iPad here in Boise, ID.

I couldn't access the thread page on my iPhone today at work. iMac at home this evening is fine. Exact opposite occurred presidents day weekend. Weird! I wish these people could get honest jobs.
