Perhaps it's just me, perhaps I need new ad blocking software, but....

Numerous times now, ads are played on the YA website that has no option to pause, mute, close, etc.

Also now on my iPhone5, when I come to this website, over and over again I am directed towards downloading a game from the App Store. I close out of that, back to the webpage and boom... same thing happens again.

Anyone else having this issues on either the website via computer or cellphone?

This is not common for me on other websites, especially on my phone.

I have found it at times very irritating. Just exited the site due to it.

Yeah the site is awful to visit from the IPhone. And if I'm listening to music and reading the ads pop up. It's kinda shitty but I at least wish we could mute the ads.

Little annoyances are better than having to pay a feww to access the site. Obviously wish there were no ads but Im just saying it could be worse

I am fine with ads on the website, YA has to make its money but the iphone 5 game pop ups that open app store drive me nuts. These are easily the most annoying ads I've come across.

For whatever reason the web based popups are far more plentiful when I access YA on my laptop from Germany. I don't know what triggers them but I was convinced I had a virus for a few days at first.

Speaking of iphone 5, I wish YA would go back to the old design layout because none of the top headlines that rotate using flash on the main page show up on an iphone/ipad.

Oh, and since suggestions are being thrown around. A search bar for the locker room would be sweet.

I can deal with ads but its the site but when the site hijacks my iPhone and automatically takes me to the App Store that's where I draw the line.

What is up with these new video ads that pop up over the first two posts in any thread? They started for me yesterday, anybody else having this issue?

Always had that problem. I put my computer on mute every time I come onto this website.

Not sure why b shredder doesn't comment anymore. Dude seriously needs to upgrade this website with a new format before somebody else comes up with a better site.

ASN has already taken Yanks-Abroad's thunder. They have regular updates and an excellent staff. Their website is clean and not buggy.

They've also taken Bshredder which begs the question who runs this site? Do they post on this board or do they just leave us savages to fend for ourselves?

Yep, the ads were driving me crazy, but I updated my ad blocker and it seemed to take care of them!

I've always had the ads with the volume you cannot turn off but it's only the last two days that the videos have started popping up on top of the posts in a thread and cannot be closed. Ridiculous.

I found a couple of Firefox ad blocker plugins that have done the trick.

There's also Chrome with Adblock Plus. It works amazing well on many different sites with annoying ads.
