    Was there a major HBA update yesterday?

    It's probably obvious to everyone but me but starting last night new pictures are showing up as a link and ...we have ads now?

    I'm just making sure this is an HBA thing and not a setting change on my end.

    I think the ads only show up if your logged off. ...and there are some pretty sleazy ads: ie. "click here to update your message account" and "5 reasons to put this pot stock on your radar" and it shows a pot leaf superimposed on the Canadian flag.

    If its not there, it cost nothing, weighs nothing, and is 100% reliable.

ID:	79083 it's just about unusable on my end, especially on a cellphone. If you pause on a post long enough to read it it shoves an ad in the post and re-formats the text around it. ...and pictures are still showing up as linkks

    Hopefully Topaz will find out what's going on.

    Several times yesterday I got an error message saying that the site was undergoing maintenance, and I could not get past that screen. Couldn't see new posts, couldn't check private messages, etc. Today it is back to normal for me.

    A lot of ads when not logged on. Typical add by someone like Google as the ads are dynamic, that is they depend on what have been searched for on the computer. And yes, there was an upgrade, for a few hours there was a notification about maintenance work instead of the normal front page.

    Weird. I have not experienced any issues or Ads. I use Firefox these days to "share less" info and I think it blocks some ads. I'll try Chrome and if I get any will report back.

    If there's one guy in the world that never googled anything about buying Canadian pot futures it's me. ...drinking homemade whisky out of a one legged hookers wooden leg? sure. But not Canadian pot futures.

    As much as I'd like to take credit, it wasn't my doing. My understanding from site admin is that there was an update to the system yesterday, and that during period immediately after the update, the "pictures post as links" behavior did occur, but it's been fixed now and shouldn't happen any longer. The few pictures posted during that window will remain as links, at least for the time being.
