    I haven’t had “congratulations” things on squidboards in a while (not in months), but for weeks theyve been popping up literally every time I try to go on this other site to the point where I basically can’t access the site

    If I’m understanding them correctly they’re caused by ads that contain and run scripts to direct you to other sites. An adblocker should help but I don’t have much experience to reference for that

    Yeah I’ve been getting these non-stop too, the forced redirect makes this site literally unusable on mobile right now

    Edit: Yep still happening

    Beginning to understand why this place is so inactive, asked about this on Discord and was completely ignored :^)

    If you keep receiving these, please put in a support ticket so we can look into this properly. Apologies for the delay. Thanks!
