Banner ad (was bottom most ad placement):

PHP Code:
https://secure-ds.serving-sys.com/BurstingRes/Site-70852/WSFolders/11256460//videos/mrl_cham7_15_HD.mp4 
Site is borderline unusable tonight, cause ads keep looping on every page refresh and taking over the screen.

I alerted our ad team but given that it's so late, no clue if anyone will see it tonight.

I assume that's on desktop, not mobile app or mobile web?

Yes, windows desktop / FF...iOS / Safari appears to be working cleanly.

Ok thank you, I'll add that to the note I left them. Hopefully they'll see it tomorrow if not tonight.

Well ad blockers are not so great for those entering sweeps, frequently they mess up a sweepstakes from loading properly too...I'm NOT against SD making a ton of money. Just use some of it to fix issues like these when they come up.

Unintended consequence of these issues, is not around as much when they occur. So much for posting user driven content. I'm not alone. Ultimately the longer they allow this to go on, the more it hurts them. Seems like they will fix it for a month or two, then a new rash of targeted problems emerges and they have to readjust.

Thanks for reporting implode. We found it using the screenshot and blocked it. Hopefully it was only coming from one source and it won't show up again.

Was doing well this morning, no sign of ad issue. As of 11:07 CST it has returned non stop. Can you please look into this further.
