Default Popup ads

Is it normal for a paid member to be seeing stuff like this blocking the page?

The picture you attached is not loading, but no you should not be getting any pop up adds as a subscriber.

Take a screen shot when they pop up and post them here. Without those it is hard to press the issue with IB. I am actively fighting to get it so subscribers do not get any adds besides the site sponsors.

Can we also get rid of ads in the mobile app since there's no way of blocking them?

I've given up on browsing this forum in any format other than on a PC and, as a last resort, viewing the "desktop site" on my phone.

The mobile app you get access to for becoming a supporter is terrible for a lot of reasons. Posts you make on it don't show up under "my posts", it's hard to browse, pictures are all wonky...

The mobile themed website is also pretty wonky when it comes to uploading things and viewing attachments sometimes. It also is a lot harder to browse and search than the main page.

Neither the mobile app or the mobile theme allow viewing of "props" or anything else site related...

I know the tapatalk discussion has been beaten to death more than twice, but my local carclub has like 10 people and we manage to get tapa working just fine and it's over 9000 times better than either option offered by mt.n (or any other site that doesn't support tapa for that matter).

Tapatalk is not happening, nor will it ever happen.

IB knows about mobile site problems and they are slowly working on them. Google is pushing hard for sites to push to mobile versions on phones, even if the user does not want them. I also much prefer the full site when browsing on my phone.
