    Please Read/ New Way of Reporting Re-Directs

    Dear Websleuths Members,


    If you are experiencing re-direct ads we need you to do the following:

    START A NEW THREAD EVERY TIME YOU GET A POP-UP OR A RE-DIRECT AND INCLUDE THE INFORMATION BELOW:


    1- Look at the time as soon as a redirect pops up. We need an exact time of when you received the re-direct. You see a re-direct look at the time and make note


    2- Take a screenshot. If you don't know how to take a screen-shot use your cell phone and take a picture. If you don't know how to post a picture from your phone contact me at triciastruecrimeradio@gmail.com and I will help you.


    3- copy the link to the Websleuths page you are on when the redirect happens and include that in your post.


    4-Give us your IP address. Go to Google and type in "What is my IP" and it will come up.

    5-Tell us what you are using such as iPad Firefox or Desktop Chrome

    6- Start a NEW THREAD EVERY TIME you get a re-direct and can provide us this information. Since re-directs can come from a million different sources we want a thread for each re-direct so we can address the issue properly.


    If you can't provide us this information then we can't do anything. The only way we can possibly track down what is going on is if you give us this information.

    Because of information provided earlier we have been able to make an adjustment that should help the situation.


    Some of the problems could be with some downloaded applications. Over the weekend I will post great information Dave gave me about downloading apps among other things.


    Thank you very much for your patience and your help.

    Take Care,
    Tricia

    My issues continue. When typing letters are slow to show up. Thanking posts difficult. Pages slow loading. 2 different laptops. One I use IE the other Firefox. Sometimes I get a small window of time where things work fairly well. Like right now. Worse for me since the upgrade.

    Whatever y'all are doing to fix the redirect issue is working. I haven't had any since I last reported via pm last week.

    Well I have had an IT guy here and he says it's the dang ad sites. I will gladly pay for no ads. Sad to say but I don't have time in my life for the aggravation. After 10 thousand sum posts I have never even been contacted by anyone other than a poster with a solution.. I will give it a few days and then I am gondy. I am not spending another 100.00 dollars to be told the same thing. I don't get the ad directs. I can barely thank. Slow loading. Despite the best of the best high speed here. I type words they barely show without taking ten minutes of pounding on keys. I get websleuths not responding. Refresh, refresh. sometimes I get kicked off. When I sign in that is another several minutes or attempts. It would be nice if I got an answer. Considering it took me 15 min. to even make this post!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have been complaining for months but it was random. Now it is pretty much most of the time. I get a small window typically late night???????????????????????????

    Bravo,

    I'd hate to see you go! I use Tapatalk and have no ads, no issues. Have you tried using Chrome for your browser? I'm just brainstorming with no real answers. I've enjoyed your posts for years.

    If this happens to you again Kakidoll please start a brand new thread for the problem.

    Can you please tell me what you are using (iPhone, iPad, Desk top ) the names of the ads and the exact time please? Remember start a brand new thread.
    Thank you,
    Tricia
