Hi everyone,
We're assured that the tech folks are working on the issues. We've been getting a lot of complaints about logins not working so hopefully it will be corrected soon.

OK, so I thought things had been getting better.

Today I have been locked out on the 60 minute “unable to connect” thing FOUR times. And each time that 60 mins expires, I refresh, browse for a maximum of five minutes before it kicks me out again. This last time, I literally refreshed to bring the forum back up, clicked on this thread, tried to post a one sentence post, and it went to “unable to connect” and timed me out for another hour.

Well, tell them to hurry up, or I will camp out outside the HQ, wave some signs around, and drink all the coffee!

I'm very worried about that comment. I don't understand much of internet connections, but this is not just a login issue.

Indeed. Loggin in is easy enough, it's staying logged in (and actually able to read* the forum in general) that's the issue.


*Well, the part that can be read when you aren't logged in, and honestly; the 502 Bad Gateway issue is not really that annoying, just makes it kinda hard to lurk.
 
Still happening after all this time, I doubt they're doing anything to fix it honestly. Saying and doing are two different things.

Basically the only "improvement" so fat I've noticed today is that they've added popup ads that popup below the screen on every forum. Good job eh.
 
And now adding insult to inconvenience with additional pop-up ads at the bottom the screen.

You won't sell much advertising on the forum if you drive all the users away by failing to make it work.

And agree totally with LS (it looked for a little while to be getting better, but now worse than ever), Googolplex (it does not appear to be about logging in) and Lequack (after this amount of time, it looks like neglect rather than inability to resolve).
 
so I get a regular banner ad at the top, another banner between posts, sticky banner at the bottom and to top it all some sponsored content ***

wonder for how long the cheap fucks at Future will leave the margins unoccupied...

It's really, really annoying. Especially on the reply page.
 
There seems to be an ad that has been piggy backed into the others - it's a fake survey type scam and the only way to get rid of it is to close the web browser (Firefox) in my case. By blocking all ads, tracking cookies etc - that is rejecting all options when The Future pop-up appears - it seems to disappear together with the other pop-ups - sorry! no ad money!

Edit - I've now cranked up the security setting on Firefox to max to see what happens. No ads so far.
 
ublockOrigin + chrome on desktop
Brave browser on mobile (android) - has built in adblocker, is based on chromium so chrome functionality without ads basically

firefox is not nearly as good as it once was. Hard to trust them or any of the browsers these days.

You open your browser to look at the Web. Do you know who is looking back at you?

Over a recent week of Web surfing, I peered under the hood of Google Chrome and found it brought along a few thousand friends. Shopping, news and even government sites quietly tagged my browser to let ad and data companies ride shotgun while I clicked around the Web.

This was made possible by the Web’s biggest snoop of all: Google. Seen from the inside, its Chrome browser looks a lot like surveillance software.

People are still, till these days, browsing without the "plugins we aren't talking about"? Weird.
How do you think CyclingNews makes money without showing the things those plugins prevent? If anything's weird, it's that people can't comprehend the consequences of their actions.
