It appears Im being spammed via the forum. every time I go in on my phone (iPhone 5S) I get bombarded by a site supposedly handing out free iPhone 7s. This is not happening on any other site so far. Just a heads up in case anybody else has trouble. Cheers

Just checked and I get nothing on my Samsung S8 through Chrome. That's when visiting www.mytiguan.com and browsing through the forum. Could be a local thing (ie New Zealand) or the Apple browser? Perhaps the Android browser blocks the redirect/pop-up.

It has been confirmed to me that this is a problem with links to the forum, possible to an advertiser within it.  Anyway the forum techs are working to block it for me so if any of you have similar situations (being redirected into reward sites or similar, particularly when using the mobile platform) please let the forum powers that be know !!

Tapatalk (or whatever it is called)?>?


I am based in South Wales in the UK.

 

Folding mirrors off the key fob on a MK1 (I was probably the first RHD MK1 Tig in the UK to have this without a module swap). ASK ME HOW.

 

I have a genuine Rosstech cable.

I don't use Tapatalk myself, not sure if that's a question or a suggestion welshkaiboy ?  To be honest I've stayed away form it as it's just another unnecessary step in the process as I see it.

Suggestion, I use ghostery and I see lots of trackers blocked on this site. I don't use Tapatalk as another forum owner I know explained to me it host lots of security risks so I have never used it.

 

I also use adblock.

Thanks for that welshkaiboy, I'll give the forum techs a few days to find a fix but if that doesn't work I'll try your suggestions.

Well the techs have thrown in the towel so I guess I'll have to look for solutions myself given time.

Well the techs have thrown in the towel so I guess I'll have to look for solutions myself given time.

I just would like to clarify mate that the techs HAVE NOT thrown in the towel. It was mentioned that this type of spam problem is very difficult to filter out as described here in various emails:

 

There may be additional URLs that you will still come across – as you can see, these ads are very targeted based on location, device, ISP, etc. This becomes an issue when trying to block them, as they can make a slight change which will avoid the block. I know it’s frustrating, but if you do return to using your iPhone to visit the site, and you do come across another redirect, I would appreciate your help by reporting them to me. It does take a lot of patience, and some trial and error, but with more reports, it seems tech has been able to successfully determine the change patterns and eliminate these redirects from other communities.

 

There doesn’t seem to be any way to be rid of them – other communities have reported that adblockers don’t even work. Whatever it is these “companies” are using is pretty fine-tuned to be able to avoid all of those blocker programs.

 

This is a known issue and tech has been pretty good about keeping on top of those block requests, but as I mentioned, they are sometimes easily overcome – there could also be several redirects, but the member is only seeing one at a time so as we block them it appears that they keep coming back but they are in fact new ones.

 

Our Adminsupport person, who has been invaluable to this forum and helped many a forum member, is merely acting as a go-between with the techs and I know she has not thrown in the towel.

 

So all this to say the techs are actively working on this very difficult problem. Adding any and all problem URL's in this thread will only benefit all members and our forum.

 

Thanks for your understanding and patience.

 

Cheers!

 

Garry

Sorry OD, didn't mean to suggest they hadn't tried but this was the last email I got:

 

Sorry I can’t be of more help with this. We’re just sort of playing whack-a-mole unfortunately.

 

I took that to mean they'd given up but hopefully I'm wrong and it was just that one person's view of things.

Hi Derek,

 

All she is saying here IMHO is she would really like to help more, but all she can do is feed the techs any new URL's that pop up on any members. As for the mole comment it basically is saying when new URL's "pop up" they will add them to their database for future blocking. If there is any person that would go the extra mile for us it's her. Really.

 

So if you or any member can provide future URL's these will be added to their database. The more they get it may be possible to obtain a pattern and put a better block in place.

 

Go ABs GO!!!

 

Cheers mate.
