Anyone else getting ads and seeing underlined words on gag?

Just today I noticed some words in posts are underlined like links, and it appears they're from "infolinks".

I've even gotten pop up ads:

As you can see, they block my navigation bar thing completely. I have to press that X and if I miss, it clicks the ad and opens a new tab.

Just wondering if anyone has this. I'm on the mobile version by the way. Hoping this isn't a problem with my phone lol.

  • Yes, I've also been seeing underlined words.
    I wouldn't mind I guess, but when you hover over them the ads or whatever that pop up seem completely unrelated to whatever's underlined... it's odd.

  • Its not your phone, its the site. I have the same issue and Im on my computer. I guess its how they are paying for all the new changes on the site. It just started today on my profile and questions.

    • The exact same thing? Infolinks ads?

    • Yep! Im only Xper level 5 so I still get ads, but today I've gotten more. And I also see the weird clickable link thingies on certain words. also in some of the questions there are these tag thingies

    • Well im glad it's not an error on my phone but this sucks, I'm used to not having ads and now I get these annoying things.

  • Yeah, I've been getting them all night. I'm on my ipod, I don't know, are you on your mobile something or other? Maybe that makes a difference. Either way, is it a new GaG feature? Or some spam thing?

    • When I say feature... I mean a way to rake in some cash... Like YouTube ads.

    • Yeah I'm on my iPhone.

      I'm thinking they've introduced ads now to make more money.

    • Makes sense. Shame on them. ;)

  • Tonight when I got home from work and got on GaG I had them pop up. I ha never seen it before tonight either and I use my phone for GaG

  • I remember that happened when I first signed up. I thought you had to be past a certain level for the adds to stop?

  • I though that was just me... I have been spammed by so many ads lately, everywhere! Those underlined words are fucking annoying, since there always is a ads that pops up when the mouse touches it. Or if I accidentally click some word, it goes to a side about user surveys. Fucking stop it.

  • Please send us messages when you encounter issues like these, you'll be helped much faster.
    You should no longer be seeing them as your Xper Level 9, that issue has been corrected.
    The ads themselves are also being worked on.
    Thanks.
