Just FYI

You guys have so much crap running in the ads of these sites now that the actual functionality of the forum is being compromised by 2 different ad-blockers I have tried. The only way to get the site to display notifications properly or even reply to a post in some cases (especially on 1000RR.net) is to disable the ad-blocker and I am not even talking about optional pop-up windows. Personally I am just losing more & more interest in even reading these sites with all this kind of extraneous crap happening in the background and slowing down the site performance which just makes me want to go watch youtube or play on instagram instead and I am betting I am not the only one. Pretty soon it will be nothing, but bots getting your page counts and eventually all your ad sponsors will see the decline in their ROI as well. I know you probably don't care about the long run as nobody does anymore, but don't say I didn't warn you when your viewership continues to tank on your various forums.

You guys still have the issues even when using the classic skin mode?

If you white list verticalscope in your adblocker, you should be able to make it compatible with the site again. Adblocker is blocking a function that tracks you only when on the site and makes sure things work correctly. If you whitelist Verticalscope, things should go back to normal for you.

If you are having trouble doing so, let me know what browser and adblocker you are using

Using AdBlock on Chrome, have zero ads, have zero problems, also only run the classic skin.

All of the forums under this umbrella company have turned to crap like this. You're not gonna get away from it very easily.

I don't know how people use the mobile site though, that is proper dogshit

Right. Forgot that the glitch doesn't effect you if you are using Classic Skin. If you are happy using that, then all to the good

If the new skin has a glitch, why not revert the site to classic so there is no glitch

Shut up and ride.

I always use the old green apple skin. Waaay less hassle and easier to navigate.
