Ha! Cool. That's something I asked for on one of these threads 3 or 4 years ago.
Would be nice if it was moved up just a bit though, maybe between the Quick Reply box and the Posting Rules.
I think that vBulletin only has certain fields that something can be placed in ... so it's most likely going to stay there. But ... hey ... it really helps us out when those ads interfere with the top nav bar.
We didn't have Buffaloed until recently ... and no one at the company knew anything about vBulletin until they found him (when they aquired his forum which was also running on vBulletin) ... so there was no one available who could help with this sort of thing. He's added a lot of great things for us when we have issues!
Yes... please. A screencap will allow tech support to identify if it's something that is happening with one of our advertisements or if it's something else like a trojan in your systme that redirects you when you try to post.
No one else is reporting this problem lately ... so I suspect that it's not something from one of our ads ... but something you have picked up somewhere. It's not anything that tFS would put in an ad ... they never redirect you. Sometimes they will have popups in the headers and we get those "green" links that are randomly generated in our posts. But, those do no redirect you, they just pop up, above the page you are on.
I suggest that you do a full scan of your computer with good, updated anti-virus software.
TFS never redirects posters?
But I just read 3 or 4 pages of posters complaining about this very thing. In this very thread.
Also, I use other websites, and I've only ever had this problem with TFS. Just FYI.

Sorry, if I did not make myself clear. The one time that your issue was posted in this thread by a few members (see the post you quoted), it was not something that tFS placed in and ad ... and that is my point. They just don't create those kinds of ads. I don't know what the glich was, but they fixed it right away ... so I could not have been intentional.
So, if you have run your virus/sypware/popup protection and it's still happening, you may provide me with a screencap and I'll pass it along to tech support.
I also need to find out if anyone else having this issue, or if it's strictly your problem. If others also report it, then they will know that it's probably coming from us somewhere (an ad, a thread) and they will dig in and try to detemine why it's happening.
I see that you did post in that thread, about the same time you posted this. This post: #256 in the thread. Is this the post that generated this ad? Did your post not appear for you? Or did you go back and make this post, later?
The tech group is investigating page rendering issues with Safari. We will let you know their findings. Meanwhile, can you try another browser just to see if that allows you to view and respond normally? Thanks for your patience.
