I occasionally like to browse on mobile and sometimes my GF does too, lately though I feel forced to activate ad blocker (robbing you ATS) of revenue. I detest that I have to do this but you're clearly not screening ads!

I keep getting the same pornographic adverts pop up at the bottom of my screen and I DO NOT appreciate it. One shows what is, quite clearly, a mans member covered in something like vaseline ( if not it certaily looks like one) and other various "look at this womans tits commercials).....
Please PLEASE address this or I will no longer frequent this site Its grotesque

I seriously doubt this is an ATS problem. You should address that with staff.

IT IS NOT THIS SITE! Its something on your end. On MOBILE? Use DESKTOP VERSION and all ads, popups, auto plays should be gone!!! We all DO NOT HAVE THESE ISSUES! Thats the clue its something in all of your settings.....

P.S. ATS cannot stop these as they do not originate here, from our site-us, by us, or because of us. Go to DESKTOP VERSION on mobile!

Good Luck........Best

Sounds someone was looking at that type of content on the device and picked up a cookie.
The ad took the cookie and personalized it for you.

You should ask you gf, see what she knows.

It's actually just a finger with vaseline, I get that ad when I pair for streaming.

The irony is that some ads are for ad blockers, which, of course, violate T&C, so ATS makes money by feeding us ad blockers, then has a cow if we use them.

Why should I switch to desktop version on my mobile to avoid ads that recently started showing (after an update by ATS). Then what's the point of even having a mobile version?
Yes, I have the same issue and it's very annoying. So I get the OP.

ETA: I exclusively visit this site on mobile devices.

Are you sure your device isn't infected? ATS has never displayed any such ads that I can tell, but even if so I don't know if they'd even have control over the actual content shown by the advertiser. You might want to run a virus scan (even if its a mobile device) just to be certain.

I'm sure a mod will come along soon enough, but I believe ads disappear eventually once you reach a certain number of posts/flags/stars anyway (or something of the like, I will see if I can find it). Hope that helps


edit: I am pretty certain it is "flags" that determine something called a "WayAbove status" which results in no longer seeing ads. Here is the thread I got the info from, and it looks like it has a lot of other info about ads

I don't log in on mobile, is it any better if one does?

Contrary to what members are posting here, there has been a change regarding ads.
It has been discussed here
Mods also commented there.
As I understand you can make a request in the big ad blacklist thread to have a particular ad removed.
@op maybe you can post your request there (I did too but the more the better)

Thanks for that.

My mobile phone has NOT been used to access porn if that's what some people are thinking. The ads appears almost overnight and wont go away.

It doesn't happen on any other site, just this one.

You're welcome.
By the way, you can request desktop version in your browser as a work around. I have also adjusted the settings on my account page.
It works for me (I can safely open the live overview page again)

You aren't going crazy OP, this has definitely been a recent change to ATS and not your phone, I was getting the exact same ad and thought the same, it looked like a willy and was trying to sell me viagra.

But as another member stated, it was just a finger covered in vaseline, made to look like a penis covered in sperms.

I also do not appreciate logging into ATS to see mock willies covered in sperms.

I just got one the same when posting back to a seemingly innocent thread ostensibly about a minor radioactive cloud over a deal of Europe these past weeks that has just been disappeared by ATS by the time I posted. That's a real pissoff, why should I waste my time on assumed nothings, then get redirected to an ATS page with crap on it.
