1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    Yeah, these app store redirects are getting absurd. Happening on both android and ios.

    Any ad that redirects is obviously *bad*, but one that pops open a new app is even worse. Anything that redirects users is a security risk too.

    Don't these ad companies have a way to stop this crap?
    I haven't heard an audio-plaing video ad on SF in a while, but these redirects are even more annoying...would think the solution would be similar. (but I acknowledge that incentives are in the wrong place...the app store assholes pay the ad company, and the ad company pays SF...so its not like SF can say "fix it or you're fired").

    Glancing at this while paying attention to something else, I misread "pay grade" as "gay parade".

    Funny thing is that ios8 Safari was supposed to block app store redirects.
    However it doesn't seem to be working or was easily subverted.

    StyFo had become almost unreadable on my ipad. I ended up paying the $1.99 for the weblock app. It seems to work.

    I literally just got redirected to the play store when trying to read your post about redirects...

    Definitely context sensitive though... I just got directed to the open table app... Had just tried to reserve a table on their website earlier today. Also explains why the fastidious car shopper @Piobaire is getting auto play videos about acuras.

    I don't know, I kinda like the redirects. They remind me to update my apps.

    He said he had taken on a pretty large case that was going to consume much of his time... perhaps that damn job of his is getting in the way?
