Why do all links take me to a dead end?

Most links, including the presumably official click on advertising links take me here

I should qualify that by adding that I am referring to the forum as in 'Promored Stories' at the foot of this page as an example


  • Hey, that was an external error which should now be resolved!

    And these photobucket ones - viewtopic.php?f=40091&t=13068027

    All of the photo links are redirecting me to Slimlinks ?

  • We can't figure out why this is happening, it's working for us on all browsers/devices. Do you use Ad Blocker?

    Thanks , i think ive sorted it now .

    It seemed to be my shortcut icon & bookmark link was failing or corrupted.

    Ive now replaced them and they seem fine ..

    Cheers ..
  • Sounds good! Have a great weekend :)

    All the photo links i click on in the classifieds send me to this -

    For example these ones in drop box - viewtopic.php?f=40091&t=13069849
    And all the other photo links i click on .

    Damn annoying !, It must be my end tho ?

    I can't figure it out ?
