    What app? I mean the normal, webpage-accessed-by-computer version.

    That's a separate issue than the one being seen on the Tapatalk app.

    Ah, fair enough. From the sound of it I'd thought the glitch had somehow been resolved via the different way of accessing it.

    pit droid 12345 has come into the possession of an unknown 3" tall pit droid. One of the droid's hands holds a wrench, and the other is used to hold a device he is looking at.

    Yes, I got that but this thread is supposed to be for forum issues...

    ;) precisely, I was stating the obvious in a way that made the initial post a little less confusing.:p

    further, pit droid 12345 appears to not be a legitimate user...

    This is not the place for questions about action figures. Try one of these forums instead:

    I thought that was a riddle which, if solved by us, would correct all glitches in our system. I had been using a cypher program for hours thinking I could save the boards and now it's only about an action figure...?!? [face_frustrated]

    Not sure if anyone else is having this issue or if it's just me, but whenever I come to the JC, a pop window appears with an annoying ad video. In addition to that, certain words in posts appear as hyperlinks to more ads.

    Going beyond the JC, every time I type in a search, I can see my results list--and then it suddenly drops below a long list of unrelated links. And at the bottom of my Chrome browser, ads intermittently appear. WTH.

    I'm running spyware and virus checks regularly so it must be an issue with Google taking on a more aggressive ad campaign?

    For awhile I had a weird 'drop out ad' thing going on when I moused over my avatar (on the main page...the big one). That went away when I reinstalled Firefox though, so I don't know if you have the same problem.

    No, I haven't noticed that. But right now, posts in this thread contain certain words that are hyperlinks to more ads.

    Did that too for awhile. Also went away when I reinstalled, but you said you're using Chrome so...

    I'm not seeing anything like that in Firefox. I've asked the question in MS though. One thing you could try is clearing your cache (temp files) to see if that helps. I know we've had this in the past and I think it was user's PC-related rather than being a board problem. If anyone else is seeing this and they are using a browser other than Chrome please put details here.

    I can verify that I don't see any of that going on using Chromium on Linux, which makes me think it may still be a malware issue, or just isolated to Windows.

    There most certainly isn't anything related to this forum that should be adding ads of any kind.

    Valyn - if you haven't done this already - I'd make sure your AV definitions are up-to-date and run a full AV sweep just to make sure.

    Or, it could be you're simply reading the overloaded sigs of half the noobs posting on here.
