Full Page Pop-up ad's now?

Twice now in the last 5 minutes I have received a full page mario/nintendo ad that took up most of the screen.  Is this coming from your site?  Are you folks doing full-page popups now for ads?

    Same here just happened twice Mario maker. I have no problem with this site using adds and i will never use an ad blocker ( get the sub based member ship up already) but the pop ups  are silly and annoying a little over the top.

    We're looking into getting this sorted right now. No we aren't intending on running ads like this.

    I had it attempt to come up when I click on a message in the globe.  Sorry, it was more of a redirect.

    Where do these ad's come from because if its like Google AD's rarely but it happens they can contain re-directs and viruses );, its why I use Ublock Origin blocks everything... Like I can see the AD banners on the background but they wont be clickable or anything.

    I don't use an AD Blocker, but I do have a Pop-up Blocker, I suggest you use that.
    I am using Firefox, there is an option to block only Pop-ups.

    On mobile - the ads redirect to the "SPIN THE WHEEL NOW" - and your phone buzzes and vibrates. Most times you can't even get out - have to kill the browser page.

    Total trash ads - it's been happening for weeks now to the point where I am forced to use adblock browser on my phone. 

    Can't use Chrome anymore as the adds that buzz my phone and take over the entire screen are shady as HELL - I have to end task them from my phone menu as you can't even go back sometimes.

    This is the kind of crap that drives people away from the site.

    Haven't seen an ad yet, must be superior technology.
