    On mobile... I keep getting ads on this forum that forward me to another site and state i won a contest. Its intrusive enough that it knows my phone and service provider. It also prevents me from going back to the previous page. Its making it extremely difficult to navigate the site.

    I'd say it's your phone/browser/provider, not this site. I also browse it regularly on my mobile (android) and no such ads come up, ever.

    I've not experienced those ads either, but if you can reproduce this (that is key for me to make a development ticket) then please message me the instructions.

    Try using one of the other themes - you can change it at the lower-left corner of your screen. I like the vB 3.x - Fluid theme. Minimal ads.
