I keep letting a pop up Volvo ad! Please make it stop 😡

OvO Tue 08-Nov-16 18:54:37

Me too. Whole bloody screen taken up! angry

Oh dear
that is v annoying - where on the site are you seeing these Scandinavian vehicles? I'll see if we can deploy some elks.

Me too!

It randomly appears on iPad when clicking on threads I'm on. It's interrupting me to ask if I want my Volvo serviced and I don't have one. Just a vulva

Me too. I did a reset on my iPad, logged back into MN and up popped a whole page with a Volvo ad in the middle of it.

It's a Swedish mystery 🙂

Ffon Ian rig, it was after I upgraded the iOS

Volvo pop up ads, in a small square, just appear in the middle of the screen on a dark ground. Four times while reading one thread. Very odd, concerning and irritating.

Hallo again,

Could you send over a screenshot? This massively helps our ads team to pin it down.

I am also getting Volvo pop ups on an iPad, I will try and screen shot next time.

I would have thought better of Volvo TBH.

I am also getting the really irritating Car servicing advert. I have done a screen shot and will attempt to attach the image.

ffon Wed 09-Nov-16 19:51:48

It's popping up all the time again.

YonicProbe Wed 09-Nov-16 22:00:07

Mine looks like that too. It's just popping up bowl, not when I click on anything.

OhHaaaaay Thu 10-Nov-16 13:51:51

I came on Site Stuff to ask you to stop selling me FUCKING VOLVOS. What a pain in the arse advert. Sorry to see its not just me being plagued by this.

I'm on an iPad.

I'll take a volvo if it will help get rid of the ads for everyone! An XC 90 will be fine. Tack

I'm getting the same thing and it's very insistent. Not something I would expect from such a Volvo.grin

Sparlklesilverglitter Thu 10-Nov-16 18:24:22

I don't want a Volvo either.

It just pops up on its own at random times

cozietoesie Thu 10-Nov-16 19:48:51

Not entirely true, BakeOff. Have you ever developed a low petrol level (i.e. perfectly normal but lower than Scandinavian cars like) on a Scandinavian car? They can be positively bossy! grin

I'm getting it on my iPad too - and I actually HAVE a Volvo!!

maisiejones Fri 11-Nov-16 10:47:20

Thank God. I thought it was my iPad. I am valiantly and persistently refusing the frequent offer to upgrade to Ios10 and thought a stealth demon had crept in and done it overnight.

cozietoesie Fri 11-Nov-16 11:40:55

Why not go to iOS 10 by the way? smile

bebumba Fri 11-Nov-16 13:09:22

Reassuring to know it is not just me but a pain none the less!

NanTheWiser Fri 11-Nov-16 15:29:47

It's getting REALLY annoying now, making it impossible to use the iPad on MN.

cozietoesie Fri 11-Nov-16 15:35:32

Ah - I finally got it. On TIO on the iPad on Firefox.

cozietoesie Fri 11-Nov-16 15:36:48

PS - I confess that I went looking for it. I generally use the app.
