    Being redirected to ads from Nameberry

    So, I've begun visiting Nameberry again after being AWOL for a while and I've noticed that sometimes after a forum page has loaded, it starts reloading and directs me to an advertisement webpage (that actually looks like it will give my computer a virus or something). I've tried pressing the X button when the page starts to reload again, but every ten seconds or so, it starts reloading again and actually slows my typing until I have to force quit my browser. Has anyone else had this problem? I know it isn't my browser itself because I haven't had an issue with any other website.

    Pam knows about this, and feel free to email her (pam@nameberry.com) about any bad ads you get. If possible try and get a screenshot, or at least note the URL of where they're from. I recently had similar problems too.

    Tell me more about your device?

    Hi @Mckaylalove -- First, thanks for coming back! I see you're in Australia -- are you visiting with your phone or desktop or tablet? It matters because we have different ad partners for each and different ones by country. We turned off all our UK ads yesterday because the supplier was not reliable and we are definitely concerned about fixing these problems but we need more info on how exactly you're browsing and if possible screenshots as it helps us pin down where these ads are coming from and so stop them. If it's still happening, please either tell me more here or email me with more details at pam@nameberry.com. Thanks

    We shut down our UK ad partner yesterday because of this, but they say it's still happening. Has anyone else in the UK or the US been redirected to porn, gaming, or virus sites? It's not happening on my UK phone browser but I'd like to hear from you if you're having a problem. I am at pam@nameberry.com. We are sorry and we are doing what we can to get rid of this.
