These are sometimes an infiltration of the ad network. Not a virus on the site but an ad that is not permitted typically on our network. If anyone has a screen grab of this please let me know. To be able to report this and narrow who might have let it in we usually need a screen grab and the URL of where its trying to redirect you.

Last couple of weeks, and several times today, the site keeps logging me out and telling me the page I'm trying to get to is not available when I try to navigate to another forum page. When I attempt to log back in I often get the page not available message even though I can get to the page without logging in.

Someone has a malware problem. I have had no difficulties whatsoever. For what it’s worth, I’m using a MacBook Air and/or an iPhone

Malware that only effects this website? Really?

I would have my Anti Virus program scan the hard drive for Malware and Spyware

No it's absolutely an issue with this site.

You can read all about the redirects on google. Notice that you get a .xyz on the url for the redirect. Go to google and search on redirect.xyz. Notice that all the complaints are not about this site.

If it’s a problem with this site, then it should affect everyone. It isn’t. I have never been redirected. Others also report no problems.

Yes- but many of us do have problems with it - but only on this site. I don't have trouble on my iMac, I do have problems on my tablet and my phone - both android. Both current on updates.

Sorry. Problems like this are above my pay grade. Wish I could be of more help

That's faulty logic.

Ad related delays were darn near making it impossible for me to navigate SGW on my desktop computer, but I just installed adblocker and the problem was instantly solved. No more long waits and page unavailable messages.

Need to do something with my cell phone too.

You never know what is in that bloatware that comes with your phone/tablet.


Bloatware is nothing but software applications that came installed on a computer. Some people find them useful and some don't.

Most web designers strive to get their sites to function optimally with the widest diversity of software and hardware configurations. Some do better than others. Of all the forums I frequent, ShotgunWorld has historically been the worst when it comes to these kinds of recurring annoyances.

If you are not happen problems then your devices just don't happen to have the configuration that the site finds problematic. The fact that so many are having these issues and they are only having them on this site very clearly indicates it is an issue with this site. Just because a few don't have the issue means nothing.

Folks all over the internet are having problems with the xyz virus and not just this site.
