I cleared my cache and rebooted my laptop this morning, and tonight I've got an ad for Epic Ski that is autoplaying video, and it did sound for a short time.  Big drag on responsiveness and it made my laptop extremely hot again.

Yeah. It's odd. It had happened a few days earlier as well. And on other pages, the same image displays just as it should.

I have two weird things happening... 

First, for the past week/10 days, my settings change on their own or it's a poltergeist. I start following any threads I post in, and after realising I wasn't getting notifications for threads I had posted in I decided to check my settings. And sure enough, that option was in-checked. I turned it on again, but it turned itself off again. And we've been at it ever since. 

Second, and this has just happened now for the first time... I was trying to post and when I hit "submit" the box to the left that says "notify me of replies" and looks green (because it's checked) turned grey, unchecked, and the post never went through. 

Any suggestions? 

ETA: # 2 obviously didn't happen here! :D

None of my devices remembers my name or password and I have to sign in and write them every time despite always having the "remember me" box turnt on. It started happening about a week ago.

Hmm, right around the time I did some tweaks, but I've no idea why those specific tweaks would cause such problem.

 

May I suggest that you and Kissdbyfire clear your caches and see what happens? in regard to these issues? Or at least clear your westeros.org-related cookies.

Under settings, scroll down to apps and select your internet browser (whatever that happens to be, Safari, Chrome, etc). Should see an option to clear history and website data

Sorry if this has already been addressed and I missed it, but is there a reason why the notifications aren't working now (at least for me)? I'm not getting them when someone quotes me and when I'm just sitting in a thread.

I'm being logged out of a machine every time I login on another. I tried clearing caches and cookies, and the issue still persists.

Notifications were turned off because of the amount of load they add during the show. They'll be put back on once traffic calms down.

Not sure why you're being logged our, Corvinus. My one suggestion would be to log out on all devices, clear cache, and then start logging in. It may be there's some sort of interaction going on between the cookies.

There is banner ad popping up occasionally today that complete nullifies any ability to use the site. It completely takes over the scrolling and any attempt to scroll away from it fails. Of course as I type this it hasn't happened again but all day today its been impossible to do anything when that ad comes up, its some video ad that's tiny too so I can't figure out what its for. If it pops up again I'll see if I can take a screenshot but the way my life goes it was probably just fixed as I type this.

Yeah, the same thing was happening to me early today, making you scroll to the up of the page but stop after a few refreshes. Can't say what ad it was tho, sorry.
