Me too.

happy.uslucky.club

They are using some kind of vanity URL software and just making many permutations of URLs so they can't get blocked.

Kind of like the spammers constantly calling my cellphone...all kinds of weird phone numbers show in my call list, but when I called back once, it said the number was disconnected or no longer in use. I long for the good old days when only family members, friends or the school would call my cell number...technology these days is being used to really pester us!!

Could someone please FIX this issue?????? I spend more time shutting down the site and reopening to get away from the Wheel of Fortune crap than I do actually being able to read the threads.

At least one moderator ( @GypsyGhost ) is completely locked out, she can't get at any of her PMs or notifications because of the redirects.

GypsyGhost is getting this redirect, right now.

She hasn't been able to access the forum for almost a week.

It is an ad directed application. The malware comes from visiting an infected website, then any time an ad runs with the triggering script, it redirects to that page. You can either remove the malware or try an ad blocker. You may not even see an ad here, but if the ad script is running in the page, you get caught. Try logging in before you open any pages here so ads aren’t given the chance to run. This site can talk to the ad distributors and ask them to remove it. It’s a nuisance but they should be able to target the ad and zap it or the hidden script.

These type of issues need to be posted in the Forum SupportHelp-Desk for a technician to see it:


https://www.germanshepherds.com/foru...ort-help-desk/

If you post there, an alert is sent to the Help Desk and someone will help.

I wish that were true. There's already a thread in the support forum from December: https://www.germanshepherds.com/foru...ked-pages.html

And an earlier one that I started last October when moderator Gypsy Ghost messaged me on FB to say she wasn't able to access the board. Yesterday she said she's still having problems with redirects: https://www.germanshepherds.com/foru...ing-board.html

The exact same thing has been happening to numerous people for a long time now and nobody seems to know why, since it's still not fixed 6 months after it was brought to their attention.

It only seems to happen on one device. My phone and computers are fine. My tablet is the issue.
