    Return of the infinitely looping ads

    I had an earlier thread about this some months ago, and I also found another one even older. Both describe the same problem, a broken ad gets stuck in an infinite loop, and everything below the ad fails to load as a result. Well, the problem is back.

    What happens is that the addresses adserver.adtech.de and 89.107.69.67 keep accessing each other, and they never get anywhere. I have tried the usually suggested methods to fix it, to no avail. Clearing cookies and other private data did not prevent the problem. Java was disabled to begin with. The only way I've been able to access the forum at all is by blocking the offending address. I'm aware this is a solution to the symptom, not the problem, but nothing else I tried would work.

    This affected Firefox and Safari, both on Macintosh OSX and Windows XP.

    Thanks for letting us know. We're really confused about this one as it seems totally random when it infinite loops and when it doesn't...

    I've been experiencing the same problems, that Feysal describes for 2 days now.
    It took me about 5-8 minutes to access this thread:)

    I'm using Firefox btw.

    Same here, using Chrome.

    It just says "Connecting to adplatform.incgamers.com" at the status bar, and hangs indefinitely.

    Yeah just had this on the no passive skill news article. The comments wouldn't load cause it was stuck. First I've ever seen it.

    Firefox is looping it forever on every page with selection set to a higher post count than 2 ad's triggers even with all add-ins disabled.
    I'm down to 3 posts per page.


    Help!

    I haven't had the looping problem for about 24 hours now. Still on Firefox.

    We have made some changes tonight that should prevent this happening. Please let us know if it continues.
