    Re: Weird Popup

    Would a restore affect the contests folder? We had a few deadlines occur between then and now.

    I turned off uBlock to check if I'd be getting it without it. I did that yesterday and just now again. I'm not getting this spam.

    This is all on Chrome. But a two things on that - My Chrome is up to date and also, I have a web shield on my AV software, so there's a chance that maybe that could block it independently.

    I'm using Chrome + AdBlock. My number on my AdBlock is incrementing but it does for almost every site I go to.

    So odd that it's not happening to everyone. If we went back to a backup from the 6th we would lose everything that was done on TAT (not just the forum, but everything) since then.

    Okay, I was able to check with both uBlock and AV off and still not getting it.

    I'm using Windows 10. Mention of Safari makes me assume at least some of who are getting this are using Apple computers. Is that common among everyone experiencing this?

    I'm on a MacBook Pro.

    I also have both AdBlock and Ghostery on.

    Chrome with AdBlock running on Linux. No popups for me.

    Re: Weird Popup

    I grabbed some local backups of the relevant to the last week prediction contest files.

    Great idea! Hopefully they won't be necessary (I'm doing everything I know how to not lose any data).

    I'm making progress. I know where the "clickjacking" is coming from and how. Now I need to figure out how to stop it.

    Re: Weird Popup

    Even with Adblock off I wasn't getting the pop-ups.

    Are RPBs turned off while in threads now? I've lost that, but guessing that may be on purpose?

    Yes, it's on purpose. They're only available on the front, main forums page. Temporarily.
