    Hello, due to the new GDPR EU laws, we have to ask for your consent to show you targeted ads. The popup is not an ad, it's just asking for your permission. Once you agree, we never bother you again (or until you clear your cookies). This is a new standard on all websites who show advertisements to comply with privacy laws.

    Same explanation as above.

    We kindly request our users to not use ad blockers when using our site. We rely on advertisements to ensure that we can support the community costs. Since we don't charge any user, we hope you'll understand we rely on this to continue to improve the community.

    I understand. Been using NT for nearly a decade so I have no issue obliging this on desktop where ads aren't nearly as annoying as mobile which forces navigation to new tabs or opens to some junk app on your carriers store.

    my question is, do you guys receive kickbacks just for ads being viewable on the screen, or are they still reliant on unique clicks?

    Are you still experiencing any? We received several reports yesterday and I'm told that the team blocked those that were reported:

    If you're still seeing any, please take a screen capture and share it with us.

    I'm on Android, BTW. Every time a click on a thread. Already deleted cache, cookies. Had to install Firefox just to be able to post this without getting a redirect :smh:
