    Hey guys, I'm a huge fan of the work being done here, really love reading Shura's wraith and TMW otw to work on my smartphone.
    But it's not possible to continue reading anymore since even having 1 page of this site keeps causing crashes from the recent additions of repeat ads for the mobile version.
    Is it possible to reduce the number of repeat ads for the mobile site so that it won't be so stressful on the phones?
    (It's the same ad so the exposure rate would be the same even if you reduce the number of repeats.)

    What browser are you using? It seems that I am not having any ad problems with my UC browser this past few days

    It still kept crashing Chrome for me, so I had to resort to using Safari on my iPad while disabling JavaScript.

    the appearance of ads make the problem appear again. Thanks for recommending UC browser. No wonder this app works since it will block all ads. Great job dam 1433. As for gravitytales please improve your mobile site ads management. I know you want to earn money through ads. Please don't make it hang

    I didn't want to open a new thread for this, so I'll piggyback here.
    I primarily read from Win10 desktop on Firefox. I have NoScript installed and have a universal blacklist, the only things that load on my browser are specifically whitelisted. I want to receive ads to support gravity tales. I tried blanket-allowing everything the site wanted to load and was warned of XSS(cross-site scripting) attempts, which are at best not necessary and at worst malicious. If there are banner ads, adwords, or whatever else relevant that I can load without being exposed to other website's scripts, please let me know where they are served from so I can whitelist and contribute properly. Thank you for your time and all the great content.

    try Google Chrome then use AdBlock Plus then whitelist Gravity Tales. I hope this will help.

    So true, if you are on data and you open that link with the automatic play video ads, it would easily eat your remaining data without you knowing

    Same issue, can’t use the reader version of they story without it restarting the page multiple times and even the regular page it crashes multiple times.

    Is there a subscription option to turn the adds off? If so please enlighten me if not site admins please think about starting one. I would guess many would sign up just to turn the adds off to stop the crashing for phones.

    I have to admit, I've been struggling since I've found the site. It's got lots of interesting stories, but if I read through 5 chapter or so, whatever browser I have suddenly ends up using 100% of my cpu and 100% of my physical memory.

    Whether I'm using Chrome, or IE, or Edge, or Firefox, whether its on my desktop, laptop or mobile device. It pretty much kicks in and I have to shut down the browser, re-open it, get back to the site... The ad scripts do seem to be whats causing most of that, especially since I haven't had it occur with any other websites.

    Heh, which definitely proves irritating when you're trying to make your way through 400 odd chapters of a story, and every 5 chapters or so its boom.

    If they would just create a subscription option like some of the other sites have that disables the ads the site would improve 100%.

    Now I'm really getting gorram annoyed.
    I literally cannot read more than two chapters of Chaotic Sword God without the bloody advertising scripts crashing and requiring me to shut down the browser, reopen, log back in and then get back to the chapter to finish reading it. Two chapters, crash, another two chapters, crash. This is not good for keeping my zone of reading flowing.

    No other site gives me this grief.
