This forum is a nightmare

Recommended Posts

What the hell is going on with this place? It has become a ad infested nightmare. It takes a long time for the pages to load due to Ads and sometimes will lock-up.

Use an ad blocker to solve the ad problem

 

Supposed to be upgrading the site software soon and the issues you mention should be cleared up. Maybe an Admin will chime with more info

A good ad blocker for me was uBlock origin but for some reason they took it off the Mac and I haven’t found a good one since. Maybe if you are on windows check it out. It cleared up the site for me when I was using it. Or try Tapatalk on the phones. Thats what I use. Much easier.

I agree, this forum needs some work.  I have a Ram truck as well and follow ramforumz and i have to say their site runs rings around this one.  You can send PM's, review your posts and conversations, see pertinent info in more detailed subforums, etc.. There are topics on programming as well which I'd like to see here.

ramforumz is a verticalscope site.  I do find their sites are easier to do stuff, it took me awhile to figure out how to find threads I had posted in to see if there are any responses to them.  And the results don't sort right for the threads that don't have unread posts in them (as in, they don't sort the threads with the most recent responses at the top, if the thread has been read).

I don’t have any issues, really. Some ads I don’t mind it free so they need to make money some where. I’m using an old iPhone 5.

I don't mind the ads either but they were affecting the performance of the site real bad but for some reason its had been working good since the site was down for some reason on Thursday or Friday cant remember which day.

Maybe you have viruses on your computer. Try running https://www.malwarebytes.com. They have a free version that will take care of anything you might have.

Nope no virus, this is the only forum I have with the lag due to ad loading

I'm using a ~10 yr old laptop, running Mozilla Firefox, with AdBlocker Ultimate and uBlock Origin with no ad problems, lagging, or any other issues.
