I have no Ad Blocker running on Geekzone and dont have a custom host setting for geekzone.

I thought it was my VPN but I still get the error with it on/off or even when it's not loaded.

I also have Geekzone on my VPN filter so I should not send geekzone data through the VPN.
202.175.128.164 (old one?) and 108.162.202.66 (current address of geekzone)

My ISP is SNAP.
It's Very strange that incognito mode in Chrome works.

Don't know if this is related however the page doesn't display right in Chrome for me. Geekzone live ends up under all the other content. Works fine in IE10 or incognito mode

Are using an ad blocker? Which one?

I run exclusively on Chrome here and have no problems with a couple of test accounts.

Adblock https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/adblock/gighmmpiobklfepjocnamgkkbiglidom

I disabled it however still displays wrong. In incognito mode the page displays fine with adblock running, however the same can be achieved by logging out. Once I log back in geekzone live ends up down the bottom

Also, I'm running  24.0.1312.5 dev-m

We don't usually support people using ad blockers (hey after all we are not being supported either, right)? But I have installed and tested it here and it works just fine.

My only suggestion is to completely clear the cache and login again.

So I tried in IE10 (which I've never used for Geekzone till now), the same thing happens when I log on, so it's not an adblock issue



I normally have the ads displaying anyway I just haven't got round to it after installing Windows 8

I think I know what's the problem now. Give me 20 minutes.

The "deformed" frontpage is fixed now (and only needed four minutes!). And you should please consider placing Geekzone in your ad block whitelist.

ROFL. Subscribe for $25/year and you don't have to worry about ads (and don't even put in the whitelist as it's lightning fast without sending the ad codes).
