why am I getting blasted with Google ads.

Postby Count Belisle on Thu Dec 05, 2013 10:24 pm

I have recently been getting "Blasted" with a lot of Google ads, Large ones too. when I logged in earlier on the log in page it had a link asking if I wanted to stop the ads. when i clicked on the link it took me to the upgrade page. I'm already a paid customer, I think CC is Great, but I pay my $25.00 a year. I don't mind ads on the log in page, but it gets kinda annoying when I'm looking at the forum page and there is a big flashing ad. is there a button since Im a paid customer to turn that off, I don't understand why it would ask if I want to stop the ads and it sends me to the upgrade page.

I am premium and experience 0 ads. Are you sure you don't have some sort of spyware/malware on your computer?

adds you mention have got nothing to do with conquer club.
in case you browse/surf over other sites, you will recieve similar adds again.

there is a script for it, you may consider installing it into your chrome browser,
name should be BLOCK ADDS or something like that... google it.

What worries me is that "it took you to the upgrade page." Are you sure it was the CC url? It would be troubling if someone's cloned the payment page for a little phishing.
