Of people who no longer appear on here?
I ve been absent a while what with having a computer stolen and some other stuff.I already refused to subscribe this year as subscription brings no benefits. I have come back onto the site today using an Android device to find that every time I change page I have pages of Google play store & ,appshop
opened for me, trying to launch stupid games that I have not asked for our even heard of.
This is obviously unacceptable. It only occurs on this site but if someone who's in the know can explain
Why& how & convince me that is nothing to do with the site then I'm all ears. Otherwise I'm all gone.

Disappointed of France.

If you're using an android device try using Tapatalk to view the forum. You may find that more convenient.

I can use all the other sites I frequent without tapatalk & without having to deal with unwarranted publicity or unwelcome and uninvited manipulation.

Ad blocking app?
it's not ads Whealie, I canput up with ads, don't like it but put up with it. This is actually launching programmes on my phone every time I change page on the site. I don't have either tapatalk or an adblocker on my phone cos I don't need either of them... except maybe for this site? It starts as soon as I log on here & stops as soon as I log off. I don't pretend to understand how it all works but it is obviously something linked to this site. If it was something on the 'phone, a virus or a trojan or whatever then surely it wouldn't activate ONLY on here.

It seems to workfine on my Android phone (although admittedly i'm subscribed). Are you just accessing XRV as a website via the phone's browser (which is what I do)?

When I view the site on my android, I'm not logged in, so doesn't matter about your member status, it's fine.

I'd say it's your phone ?

Apart from the ads we have always had there are no pop-ups or other sort of code on XRV.. Apart from tapatalk which if you read the forum on a mobile device will pop up and tell you that there is an app available for the forum. This single pop-up is dismissable and will not again pop up for that session.

If I access the forum from my Android I don't get any of the problems you are mentioning.

yes , just using phone's browser.

if it's the phone, then why would it happen ONLY on this site & not on any of the other sites I use regularly (maxbikes, aus touring, le repaire, BBC, france info, to name but a few...)

I had the tapatalk proposition once but have not had it again since, the last 5 or 6 times, within 5 seconds of logging on here googleplay automatically opens on a page proposing to download some game such as candy crush, boulderdash, gemshop or other useful & constructive passtime. it then repeats that 5 seconds after every page change. I repeat that this ONLY happens on this site which is why i can't believe the problem is with the phone itself. I'll try without logging in & see what that does.

well it seems to have stopped.

even with the phone's browser it's no longer opening google play pages. Dunno what's changed, I don't think I've changed anything, certainly no settings or owt.

ho hum, another mystery to add to the the list, along with the disparition of atlantis & the missing link...:clown:
