Is anyone else having trouble viewing the forum pages using a smart phone?

I keep being redirected to http://luckytickets.org saying I have won an award. This only seems to happen on this website.

Thanks

Yup, Galaxy III actually. And the site is unusable while using Google Chrome. Something with the ads on the side don't go well with the the chrome operating system. It's like tequilla and coke...they don't mix all that well (Tequilla with anything other than margarita's don't mix really)

Is there anyone that can look into this. The forum is not usable from my phone because of these redirect ads.

I no longer have an Android device to use as a test platform. The site is working on my iPhone just fine. What browser are you using and how many people are having this problem?

The site works fine for me in Chrome on both Mac and PC. Are you using the Chrome browser or are you using Chrome OS (ie. a ChromeBook)?

I am seeing the issue using the Dolphin browser, Chrome Browser and Native "Browser". The operating system is Android Ice Cream Sandwich.

The issue seems to pop up about half the time, and redirects to a page called luckytickets.org. It is a hard popup with nothing but an OK sign to force you to move forward.

Okay, thanks. Gonna be tough to troubleshoot this without an Android device but I'll see what I can find.
