The "close up pics" banner ad is incredibly annoying on the iPad

Forums - Website Topics - The "close up pics" banner ad is incredibly annoying on the iPad

This banner ad pops up in front of everything, not above it, but in front of it, every time I change the page in any way.

Move to the next page of a thread?  Here's a close up pics banner. Reply to a post?  Here's another banner blocking your view. 

If I'm on the iPad, I spend a substantial portion of my time closing this stupid banner pop up. Quite often, I tap a cm in the wrong direction and end up in the App Store. 

How can I block this, or make it permanently go away?  I don't think even buying the thing it's advertising would work.

This tbh, but if you have mercury browser app, set it to chrome in user agent and you can browse it like a desktop user.

Also Mercury comes with Adblock.



Intel core i7 930 OC @ 4.0 ghz

XFX Double dissipation Radeon HD 7950 356 bit 3gb GDDR5 OC @ 1150 MHz core + 1575 x 4 memory

Triple channel DDR 3 12gb RAM 1600 MHz

Omfg yes! Kill it with fire..... Or at least make it work properly >_>



That ad is the bane of my existence when I'm on my iPhone



Platinums: Red Dead Redemption, Killzone 2, LittleBigPlanet, Terminator Salvation, Uncharted 1, inFamous Second Son, Rocket League

I couldn't agree more. I get "The Last Of Us" adds too sometimes.

It is the most annoying thing ever and made me leave the site for a while since I only have an iPad.

Where were you when I posted about this a few months back? 

Thank you a ton though because it works :)



yea, i stopped browsing this site on my ipad for this same reason. but it's not just this site, a lot of sites have recently bombarded ipad's safari browser with all sorts of intrusive ads. It makes me dislike their products if anything, it's horrible advertisement.



Exactly right, it ruins the user experience. I will try to close it, and about half the time miss it and the App Store opens and I just rage quit.
