My big issue I have is that my phone keeps showing ke ads for cars where the x is so small I cant just click it with my stubby fingers and it won't zoom in on the ad enough for me to click it.

Well at least you can still read it.

Regarding phones, I have an ad-blocking browser I downloaded especially for VGC that works fine, while I just use Safari for everything else lol. On my PC, Firefox I guess blocks most things, because it never gets as bad as some are saying.

I disabled flash player autorun on Firefox because of this site. It was slowing down my 2.4ghz i7-4700mq so much it became impossible to scroll down. I frequently got this program is not responding warnings. Most adds don't use it anymore yet I still get black square adds now and then.

Yeah I don't even know what I... Apparently I have "Block pop-up windows" and "Block dangerous content", whatever that is, checked. Not even Cookies though, which I thought I had turned off.



I stopped trying to connect to VG with mobile. The experience is just that bad I cannot be bother having ads pop up for each link I click or thread.



AdBlock is your best friend on this site. I hardly use the mobile version of it because of the ads.



Yeah I cannot use my phone to access this site anymore. Everytime it takes to another page that will not let me exit that says a virus is detected. Not a great welcome.

Gotta sell those support subscriptions somehow.

I rarely post on mobile anymore, it's fucking ridiculous how intrusive and shady the ads are. And even if you're somehow able to cycle to a thread and click on it before you're redirected to some bullshit scam site because you've won a free $1,000 iTunes gift card, the fucking page constantly shifts to the bottom of the thread, where some stupid video ad is playing.

Load it up on PC with Adblock running, no problems at all. Does iPhone have any sort of ad blocking stuff? I'm pretty new to iOS.

I have iOS and I use Dolphin browser (Opera is also a good alternative). Has pretty good privacy settings and if anyone uses your phone, they most likely won't know what the Dolphin icon is. Great for keeping nosey people away. Bing is also a decent engine as well. Safari works for every other site I visit, but I tend to think my normal sites I visit aren't spammed with malicious ads like VGChartz.



FootballFan - "GT has never been bigger than Halo. Now do a comparison between the two attach ratios and watch GT get stomped by Halo. Reach will sell 5 million more than GT5. Quote me on it."

Will everyone stop saying "ADBLOCK"?

You're missing the point. The people running this site are doing a shitty job. They need to address these issues. ESPECIALLY on mobile. I can't even use this site on my phone because I keep getting redirected to some crap.

Anyone managing a website PROPERLY, wouldn't let this happen. It's not up to US to download who knows what to try and fix it. It's up to the website to prevent garbage from getting IN.
