    For about 3 days now out of nowhere NT will redirect to this Amazon Rewards Ad page and will not let you go backwards to your NT page.

    I have to close the tab and start over. Is anyone else experiencing this >: >:

    Because you click on a topic, doesn't mean you have to respond. It's obvious the OP has a phone. I said I got it on my phone. And no it's not just a windows or android thing.


    You need to read more and do less typing, you make yourself look bad a lot.

    Damn was about to say guess its just a chrome bug. But nvm.

    I've yet to encounter this myself, but we've reported this to the team at Wikia/Huddler for investigation.
    Understand that using an ad blocker is no better than pirating software.  You're stripping away the means we use to cover our operating expenses - not to mention our means of contributing to charity.

    If everyone used ad blockers, we'd have no more NikeTalk, no more money for Equal Justice Initiative, Room to Read, One Love Foundation, American Indian College Fund, Doctors Without Borders, Children's Defense Fund, Harlem Children's Zone, Operation Smile, and any other organization we have supported or would support in the future.  

    That, or we'd have to resort to more intrusive advertising to make ends meet.  Right now, we do NOT offer "sponsored editorial content" like other sites.  I don't want to change that policy.  I don't want to let advertisers cover the forums with "advertorials."  We don't want to place aggressive stuff that's designed to circumvent blockers, so we trust people to accept the relatively minimal, industry standard display advertising we do have as the "price" for the service and experience we all work so hard to provide.  

    Pop ups, redirects, etc. are intensely annoying, and we work very hard to identify and remove rogue ads whenever they're reported.  

    We'd much rather work with everyone to deliver the best free/ad-supported community we can than have people essentially fighting us to undermine our community's primary means of support.
