    Title says it all. Comes up every time I go back to the home screen, then can't click on anything for 15-20 seconds Screenshot_20190908-192957_Chrome.jpg

    Same problem here. Been happening for the last few hours.

    I was starting to think that my phone was shitting itself.

    I'm losing the ability to swipe up and down the page which lasts up to a minute then accesses a random thread.

    Happens about 50% of the time regardless of what ad has popped up. Last night it was some store ring ad and now it's a LG dishwasher ad.

    Grrr.

    I thought it was my phone screen giving out. I've visited the RLWC 2017 subforum about ten times in the last week.

    Galaxy S8, chrome 76.0.3809.132

    I've noticed that the screen freezes until all ads are fully loaded on the screen.

    If you attempt any action such as accessing alerts or a thread, nothing happens until those ads are loaded which can take up to over a minute. Even closing LU and reopening doesn't improve things.

    Also, you can only scroll down in the main forum menu to say The NRL Cave before you're met by a black screen anything below it.

    Note 8 with Chrome. The site is pretty much unusable now. Same issues as reported above. Half the page loads and is then unresponsive for 20 or so seconds.

    Seemed to be working fine earlier today, but now it's up the shitter again. It's the Pointsbet ad that's doing it, or whichever ad that looks like it is "behind" the forum page.

    Yea the scroll over type of advertising is making the mobile version extremely frustrating. Put it this way, I will definitely not be using whatever is advertised out of sheer frustration.

    I literally just move my thumb an extra inch and scroll past it.

    Drama queen.

    Doing what? Freezing? Not scrolling properly? Sitting on top?

    Screenshot?
