About
This board is designated for Smack Jeeves related support. If you have a question about using the site or the forums, you've come to the right place.

Before Posting
Please browse/search the Knowledge Base & FAQs Forum for the answer to your problem before posting. It contains an extremely helpful, organized list of common help topics.

Got a Bug?
Post it in Bugs & Glitches, not here.

Rules

    1) Use descriptive titles for your threads. Example: "How do I upload comics?" Do not use vague titles like, "question," "HELP! ANYBODY??"

    2) Describe your problem in detail. Explain exactly what is wrong. Post images, screen shots, links, code snippets - whatever is relevant. The better the information you provide, the better the solution you will receive.

    3) One question per thread. Do not post multiple questions in one thread; that way, we can resolve questions individually. Make a new thread for each question you have, unless your questions are closely related.

    4) Be polite. The more polite you are, the more people will want to help you. Be patient, and we will help you find the solution to your problem.

If your question has been resolved, please say so. A thank you would also be nice. If your question has NOT been answered, say so in the original topic. If your topic has been moved to resolved, you may then AND ONLY THEN post a new topic regarding the same issue.

Potentially malignant ads?

Hi there. I'm not sure if there's a specific place to report this but I was browsing the site today and what I'm assuming is one of the ads on the main site automatically led me to another page, off-site.
Seemed to be one of those 'click here to answer a survey/win a prize!' type things that look at your ISP and try to trick you into accepting based on that /:

Is there any way to have this looked into? Cheers.

The Problematic Advertisements thread in Bugs & Glitches is the place to report malicious ads. If possible, please include the URL it redirected you to (you can check "Do not automatically parse URLs" in the post options to make the URL not become clickable, so that people don't accidentally click).

Thank you, eishiya.
I thought I remembered glimpsing something along the lines of that thread a long time ago but couldn't remember and must have skimmed over it at a glance xP
Thankfully I did save the link, hurrah. Posted over there! /salutes

Cheers
