    Petra will have to pass your concerns up the chain to Stratics Central.

    But, I will say this.

    Something in a recent update to flash players, has significantly broken many existing sites that use flash. For example, many of the Flash-using games on Facebook, etc. are having significant errors and browser crashes (across all 4 major browsers) as a result of this. Given that Zynga's user base for Mafia Wars, Farmville, etc. probably is about the size of WoW's stated userbase, one can imagine the amount of frustration being vented on Facebook & Myspace for the last few weeks - and that's not counting the people playing non-Zynga games that are also having issues.

    I also get similar errors on sites with flash-based ads, which may very well be the issue you are describing - even if the ads don't display due to subscription / membership levels!

    In other words, I think the issue is much deeper than simply a single ad on Stratics.
     
  3. I've been getting the virus/trojan warning again myself.

    Can I ask that, when something like this comes up, you use the 'contact us' email link at the bottom of the page rather than rely on the thread being spotted? Please?

    I had major trouble with this until I loaded Firefox. Now all the Zynga games play as they should.

    You're one of the lucky ones, Tom - It's been pretty much all browsers across the board reporting it on their forums - Firefox, IE, Opera, Safari, Chrome..... It seems to come and go, and hit different people at different times (I can go hours with no problem, then have a day with constant lockups).
