Fake Competitions Appearing As Ad In Threads?
Not sure if this is an issue or not. I have always avoided clicking links that say things like 'You have been selected from thousands of other...'
Do these ads [in red] fall into that category?
The ads do not declare a brand name when they appear in the threads [except for the brand of the 'prize' on offer]
Perhaps this is not an issue at all but it looks a little off to me.

Cheers for reporting, I will nerf them, they are NEVER supposed to appear. Did you happen to grab the url they point too?
I am trying to get one to appear for me so I can find the company to ban.

Here is a URL from one of the links [not sure which one or even if they pointed to two different URLs]

I just got a "999,999th visitor to this site" ad as well, but my brain is still too slow and I left the page before I grabbed the URL if I get it again, I'll edit it in here

Speaking to our provider again. Sorry about them, the odd one does slip through now and then.

I have pulled the ad provider who I think is at fault, if you see them again from 10 mins onwards let me know.
